Within the Shadows
Living on the razors edge, Giselle Bergman’s life is torn apart by her cheating boyfriend. Little does she realise that he is the least of her worries when her long term friend Alex reveals a secret long hidden, and introduces her to his family and a new, darker world; a world of lies, deceit and corruption.
Thrown from one problem straight into another, the razors edge gets thinner and sharper, testing Giselle’s sanity and vitality. Never truly knowing who her allies are, Giselle soon learns not to trust anyone, even herself.
How far will Giselle run to escape what fate has dealt her?
Will she ever truly be free from the shadows that not only want her soul, but have her reborn as their Queen?
Join Giselle on a journey that is only beginning…
Not even she can hide when living within the shadows.
Giselle has barely had time to accept her new life, never mind the prospect of motherhood, but she finds herself, yet again thrown into chaos, only this time there is more than just her life at stake.
Awakening in a world among the angels, Giselle finds friendship with Ysoriel, an archangel, but little does she realise that Aurelius is under the watchful eye of Xavier and his minions, and soon enough Giselle falls prey to their wickedness.
Loyal and dashing Antoine does all he can to protect Giselle from Alex and Atarah, but underestimates the power of Xavier, taking him down to the pits of the Shadow World and a battle that see’s him question his own existence.
With vampires and shadow creatures vying for her life, can Giselle escape the darkness consuming her, or will she finally descend into the world of shadows?
When we all think of Hell, we assume the worst. A world controlled by the darkest of entities, a place where man cannot outwit the devil himself, and survival is almost impossible.
Giselle is about to find out exactly how twisted Hell can be…
As Giselle travels through a Hell she never believed existed. Her wit is tested beyond belief, and all the while her closest companion Antoine fights to keep her sanity intact, whilst battling the incessant desire burning deep inside him.
Atarah teams up with Xavier to finally bring Giselle’s existence to an end, and raise baby Kaden as their own, but Alex is more than willing to end his son’s life to spite them all.
Will Giselle finally break free from the lure of the Shadows?
Can she avoid falling for the call of the Nymph?
Will Kaden survive the battle of all battles; Giselle and Alex?
Nothing has prepared Giselle for what is about to happen.
Join Giselle as she brings closure to a story that catapulted her from her once ordinary life, to a world darker, and faster than anything she ever imagined.
