There are a plethora of novels floating below the radar, ready for discovery. As I delve below the surface, I will list my finds here. What good is a treasure hoarded? Let's all share the wealth...
This week I read...

When first time mum, Abby, begins to believe her family would be better off without her, we witness her sink so far into postnatal depression that she falls out of the other side and straight into Monochrome... It is a dark and tortured place, filled with desperate lost souls eager to suck the happiness right out of her heart - or more precisely her head.
Abby soon learns that to return to her family, she will need to hold onto her faith in herself and her love for them - not an easy task when every amenity she uses requires payment... payment in the form of her most cherished and happy memories; and the task is made all the harder by the presence of her Guide, an apathetic yet curiously interesting young man named Ishmael, tasked with leading her to the border of Monochrome and Reality...
Abby is tested, time and again, by painful memories of the past and traumatic attacks in the present. Black spots of doubt and surrender begin to settle in her green eyes, her trust is shaken, and her long and arduous journey takes its toll on more than her feet.

Of Dreams and Shadow is a Young Adult Paranormal novel but you'll find no vampires or werewolves between the pages. No, D.S. McKnight's picture-book town of Parson's Cove is haunted by something else entirely; something as dark as shadow.  
When sixteen year old Jenna Barton moves into 203 Sandpiper, a little house with a secret, she doesn't just attract the attention of the boy next door. Jenna can't understand why Chase Williams has taken an obvious dislike to her. They're the same age, attend the same school and socialise with the same circle of friends but every time she sets foot in the back garden Chase's attitude sends her back inside.  
Chase remembers. He remembers the little girl with brown hair, Sarah, who lived next door. He remembers the shadow, rising up and enveloping the little girl by the rock in her back garden. He remembers that no one believed his story.  
Jenna reminds Chase of Sarah, of what Sarah may have looked like if she'd lived to sixteen; and the shadow feels the same. Silas has lain dormant, waiting and watching, and now Jenna has his full attention.
