THE SHADOWS .:logo and info:. by E-Kathryn
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.

If you have further questions about the Shadows, a requests for excerpts feel free to ask. For more updates and quotes from the books please visit THE SHADOWS's blog at theshadowsillustrations.tumblr…

"Gravity creates force, force attracts light, whatever the light touches is in gravity, but when darkness touches it... gravity exempts darkness, darkness controls energy, so whatever the darkness touches is in the energy of a different light. It's thick, you can't move in it. you can't fall. There's pressure, closing in; coming from all sides of you. Increasing... increacing... there's no sense of what is up or down. That's what darkness is like. You have an ever present sense that you could be crushed at any moment." - Skyelum Spero Hawkin
