PRAISE FOR A PLACE OF SHADOWS:
A SOLID READ, COMPARABLE TO KOONTZ, BARKER, ROBERTS
“Dan Alatorre is a master at setting up simple scenarios that somehow manage to go sideways and then snowball from there. Alatorre is adept at making us realize there are other less gross yet more common things that can scare us. Those who enjoy Dean Koontz, Clive Barker, Nora Roberts paranormal fiction will feel right at home.” – Ginger S. Baldwin Review
I COULDN’T PUT THIS BOOK DOWN
“If you love mysteries with a supernatural twist then you will love this novel as much as I did. Highly recommended.” –Adele Park Review
AN EXCELLENT BALANCE BETWEEN MYSTERY, SUSPENSE, AND DOWNRIGHT SCARY MOMENTS!

HEART-POUNDING, GUT WRENCHING
“ I love every Alatorre book I’ve read, but this one might be my all-time favorite. A great read!” – Linda McKay Review
“The story was incredible”– Kindle Review
COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN!
“A thriller from page one. Dan Alatorre weaves a plot with events that could be either coincidence or supernatural. Is this normal family terrorized or just paranoid? It’s a fine line with suspense that builds to the conclusion.” – J Y review
LIKE A GREAT ROLLER COASTER RIDE
“This book hooked me from the beginning” – Patricia Review
“This story grabbed me from the beginning, and kept me turning each page in anticipation to see where it was going to take me next, and did not disappoint. And the ending? The ending wrapped up this whole package and topped it with a nice shiny bow. Such a good read!!” – Carrie Ann Review
CREEPY AND SATISFYING
“The style of this book reminded me a bit of Stephen King’s book It where he goes back in time to the children’s childhoods for pieces of the story which help to explain how the events in the book all fit together in the end. Very creepy and yet written with a sense of possibility that makes it all the more eerie, Dan Alatorre conveys his story in a way that really plays on the readers emotions and imagination. – Robbie Cheadle Reviews
