You're dead, but you see and hear and feel. You're not a vampire, but you can't survive in light. You can travel through shadows with the blink of and eye. You escaped from a world of monstrous shadows, but it continues to haunt you. You're sixteen and you just don't get it! What else is new?
There are creatures abroad in the Shadow Realm; teenagers who were once taken out of their time and place by a sinister force. But somehow, these youths-called Shades-have found their way back to our world. The question is how…and why.
Nathan Maple doesn’t have a clue who he is or why
he’s here. All he knows is that there are strange
creatures out to get him, and the more he struggles
against them, the more persistent they become. He
destroys some of them, but others appear. He feels
disconnected from his surroundings. As he researches
his past and tries to find out how he got
into this situation, he discovers that the Shadow
Realm has not only taken his past, it has taken his
parents too. Nathan must find them if he is ever to
recover his own identity. But what can he do to
defeat the dark when he himself is a creature of
the shadows? While he hesitates, more people die
and the Shadow Swarm begins to rise…
