|Welcome to the world of Shadows!|
Iszeldier Halo is a cheerful, immature, and often mischievous 13-year-old Shadow whose powers are mysteriously strong. With a wild silver crown he has the Shadows of Frost and Inhibitor, and the will power to bring down the Basilisk if he wanted. Iszeldier, however tends to enjoy using his powers a little too much, and declares a headhunt on himself while creating an icy labyrinth for the trapped Shadows to find him first, and then somehow find out how to defeat him.
Mark Halo and Ocie Keller are the main characters of the first two books in THE SHADOWS series. While Ocie is calm and understands a lot about the Shadows, Mark is younger than her and still has yet to get control over his abilities. Both of them are class three Shadows, Ocie is Shadow Hope, and Mark is Shadow Strength, but it's clear they wield those powers to serve a certain purpose.
The character Jeromy Stuart is the eleven-year-old heir to Kipling Hawkin. Although he is unrelated to Kip by blood his powers are strikingly similar to his predecessor except for the dangerous fear growing within him and a monster that is threatening to take control. At this point, Jeromy would just like to know what's got him by the strings.
The character Mark Halo from "THE SHADOWS: Trust's Anticipation" is an eighteen-year-old pyrokinetic Shadow, who for the last five years of his life has been involved in the strange practices and powers of a race separate from Humans called the Shadows.
The writing of this series is still in progress but excerpt requests are always open!
The Character Kipling Hawkin is the first known Shadow Fire, his power, called Cyatus, is one of the only known Shadows to "level" in other words to change and improve with each use. In THE SHADOWS: Fire's Hope, Cyatus' form is only of light, but soon improves to the "shot form" giving him the ability to fire a beam of plasma from his hands, and later into the Crystal form when it is renamed Cyatus.
In THE SHADOWS: Trust's Anticipation the readers learn that the character Irwin Halo struggles to express all emotions except anger. Tormented by his defect, Irwin learned to play the violin and flute in order to express his emotions boldly and without his ever-present Nova-half threatening to destroy everything he loves.
The Shadows are a race apart from the Humans chosen at birth by the Trust of the Shadows to wield abilities. The story is set in the year 2030 onward focusing on a young Shadow named Mark Halo who has recently discovered his powers. While most Shadows are taken to the "ASH" at birth, his power is to hide from and defy the ASH. Through the story he learns this power can free the Shadows and later he learns about the secrets the ASH has held about the Shadows since it was created. Mark goes from thinking he is a Human to striving for the highest possible rank in the Shadows, The Overseer, which would make him ageless and responsible for keeping secrets and revealing them in due time.
