Shifting to Black by Barb Shadow is a paranormal tale like no other. New Castle Asylum was abandoned many years ago and has now been renovated. Called Forest View, it is a complex of apartments. The caretaker/manager, Joe Paine, has found an Ouija board on the premises and begins to use it, not really understanding what he is doing, especially when “Black” begins talking to him when he uses the board. The Jack Barnes House is under investigation by the ghost hunting team, Out of the Dark Paranormal, and their investigation leads them to New Castle Asylum. The team is about to face their toughest challenge yet, not to mention their most dangerous and time is running out in the race for survival.

Shifting to Black by Barb Shadow is a creepy paranormal story that will leave you shivering in terror. It is one of the most twisting stories of its kind, action all the way in a fast-paced unique plot. The characters are amazing, well-developed, including the cat, and you get plenty of opportunities to become well acquainted with them; you will feel as though you are old friends by the time you get to the end. You seriously will not want to put this book down; once you start reading, you’re in it to the end. Be prepared for plenty of mystery, suspense, terror, and more than a few chills as you enter New Castle Asylum. Highly recommended for fans of the paranormal, and those who just want a story with a great plot to lose themselves in for a few hours.
