About the Book


Auren longs for adventure and a break from her tedious life on Appolia. It's the start of summer, and she is looking forward to her yearly camping trip with her foster father, Kado. She believes these trips are for fun, but when they arrive on Luten Isle, Kado informs her that she is a shadow stalker, and she is in training.

One morning, Auren decides to take her training into her own hands. She only means to practice seeing the veil to the shadow world, the world of the shadow people and the source of their power. Instead, she opens the veil releasing a demon, a guardian of the shadow world, into the physical world.

With the deadly beast loose, she and Kado don't have long to hunt it down and return it to where it belongs, or many innocent people could die.



Keep reading for an excerpt:


"We're getting closer." Kado sped up, trusting that Auren would keep up with him. They needed to reach it before it got to the mountains or they might lose it. Though there was an advantage to it heading that way. It wasn't going toward any of the villages.

The rock face they had run into rose well over two hundred meters, but about fifty meters up, there was a cave.

Kado pointed. "That's where it’s heading."

"How do you know?"

First he pointed out the obvious. Recent gouges in the hard rock. "It will seek darkness as well. Being from the shadow world, they are not accustomed to the daylight. It confuses and agitates them."

"Maybe it will start just traveling at night then?"

"They don't sleep, Auren. It will keep moving. We're just lucky they move so slowly. It's our only advantage."

"How are we going to get up there? We didn't bring rope."

"I had intended on teaching you to free climb during this trip. I also planned to have time to do it properly. We don't have that luxury now. I will go first. Watch me and go where I go."
