HOLY SHIT! This book is dark. I just spent an hour reading the book. And fuck, I felt like I was reading a ghost story. You know that spooky feeling you get after reading one of those? Like a sense of dread as if what you read about is watching you? That’s how I feel right now.
In all seriousness, I found the book an interesting read, and also a necessary read. I’m interpreting shadow people as entities created on the astral plane from negative emotions, and thus exist to feed on these emotions to maintain their existence. And in the current social climate, I’m getting the feeling they must be much more common than they should.
I’m glad I got the book, cause I might have a shadow figure haunting me. I’m not sure if I feel comfortable using the book right now. I’d rather have the protection of a god or demon on my side. I’m not sure if I’ll be using them to attack someone, but the idea of shadow integration sounds useful…for later.
