The sun is failing, her brother missing, the world divided. Fayle must protect her twin at all costs during their search for their missing brother, even if it means facing off with Shadow Men - boneless creatures that shroud themselves in darkness and survive the fading light using the stolen flesh of mankind as protection. But can she survive the war, not just between shade and human but her divided heart, long enough to find her brother? And if she does - will the greatest sacrifice of all be enough to save him?

She was around the same size as you so I told her to get what she thought while I sat on a chair and contemplated not killing myself.""You don't mean it," I said, smiling at his lingering distress. "Yes, I do. And...
Chapter Twenty-Six I finished my toast and got up, needing to pee. He'd left the bathroom in a mess, so I straitened it up while I was there. It really was boring here on your own, and I quickly understood why he loved his TV so much. All three channels of it. I sighed, flicking it off again. It had only been half an hour. I walked over to his bed and lay down. It was sti...
Chapter Twenty-Five "My sister and I had been shadow hunting for eight months when we met them. There were three of them. They offered their resources in return for ours.
