All Things In The Shadows

The Shayd Chronicles



Have you ever seen something out of the corner of your eye, but when you turn to look, there’s nothing there?


Eve Torino is just an ordinary seventeen-year-old girl, living a perfectly ordinary life…except for the secret she keeps…


The voices she hears, and the shadowy figures who flit by on the edge of her vision. 


Eve never thought that she fit in, she always felt like there was something missing, that is until a mysterious girl comes into her life and everything she thought she knew comes crashing down.  This mysterious girl can move without a sound, she can melt into the shadows and reappear on the roof of a four-story building in the blink of an eye, and no one else seems to be able to see her.


Eve feels drawn to the enigmatic Kateri and her swirling, multi-colored eyes with the bright white pupils.  She will introduce Eve to the hidden realm of the Shayds; an army of warriors who protect the world of light from the forces of evil.  They are the forgotten, the ignored, the castoffs of society who we all pretend we can't see, until one day, they enter the Umbra, the barrier between our world and the things that haunt our nightmares.

With Kateri’s help, Eve will discover how much of a difference one person can make, and that there are more things in the shadows than we know, but this knowledge will come at a terrible price.
