Best book everrrr!5 star

I LOVED Kory’s Dying For A Living series. So after this AMAZING book I want to keep digging. I want to find out more about Lou-Blues story....and whatever happens to her life (and death) and all the wonderfully developed characters along the way. I guess since i just lost my dad, I feel for Louie and fell in love with her by the first couple of chapters. Her story is one filled with pain, longing and a need for redemption. It’s beautifully written, fast paced and grabs your attention in the first page. I’m falling down the La Loon rabbit hole on this one! Thank you to the author for giving me chills...and tears. Lol 👍❤️😘55

Wow! I hardly know where to start. . . This was one of the most spellbinding, well thought out and entertaining books I’ve read in a long time. The heroine (?), Lou, kept me enthralled and you need to read the book to understand why I added the question mark! I look forward to reading Kory M. Shrum many times in the future and expect to be as spellbound in any of the genre she cares to pursue. Well done Ms. Shrum!55


Shadows in the Water5 star

As an avid reader, I was thrilled to discover Kory M. Shrum. I first was attracted to her DYING books and was so sad when I completed the entire series. I wanted more...more enthralling characters, more breathtaking suspense, more Kory Shrum novels! And then I found it, the WATER series. I was hooked on the first book Shadows in the Water from page 1. Following the main character Lou Thorne, I was drawn into a life that was horrendous to even imagine. Gaining strength from the terror of her world, she moves through the days hell bent on revenge. Others in her life...Robert King, Aunt Lucy, and Konstantine try to save her but, at the same time, need her to save them. I held my breath as I followed Lou each time to La Loon and what lay in wait for her there.55
