Publisher's Summary

First setting: an all-male prep school in Arizona, where two sensitive freshmen form a bond based on their interest in magic tricks. Second setting: the labyrinthine house of a weird magician uncle in New England, where the two boys spend a memorable summer being trained in the art of illusion. Or is it real magic? Third setting: an alternate world where dark forces are at play - forces that first show up at the school, but intensify their power the summer. Shadowland is a superb, under-recognized, early novel from a master of literary terror.

Still one of my favorite books!

Any additional comments?

So pleased to find one of my top favorite books finally on Audible. The narrator was very good, and the story is Peter's best!

Performance Equals the Story

This has been a fav book since I read it in my youth. So vivid, so full of horror and tension...and myth. It is a dark book and full of characters so I wasn't certain how well the narrator would manage it. WOW. He nailed it - from the falsetto of youth to the bored dilettante...so pleased he rendered the tale as I heard it in my head - that, the best compliment.
