“He was born in shadow but he will be Shadow-Borne.”

Hello all!!!  It’s me again and this time, I am updating you guys with the book cover and synopsis for The Dead of Night, Book 2 of the Shadow-Borne Chronicles.  I hope you like the cover as I put a LOT of time and effort into creating an image I thought represented the ‘flavor’ of the book.  Seriously…I probably worked almost as hard creating the image as I did in writing the book!  Okay, maybe not…but I honestly did put a lot of time into it.  Let me know what you guys think of it.  Below you will find the synopsis.  I hope that you enjoy that as well.  Again, I apologize that it’s taken longer than expected to get this book edited and released.  If you want a sneak peak at the Dead of Night, join my Newsletter.  I’m going to be sending out several free chapters and for right now, that’s the only way to get them.  I still don’t have a release date for the book, but I will let you know as soon as I figure it out!  If you have any questions or comments please email me:

The Dead of Night

Book one, Shadow Born, revealed the transformation of Alec Carson into a half-vampire half-human hybrid with all the strengths and abilities of a vampire, but with none of their weaknesses.  After surviving attacks, assassins and a hostage situation, Alec went before the vampire Elder’s Council to plead for his right to exist and for his life.  After three Ancient Ones, the oldest vampires in existence, stepped in and spoke on Alec’s behalf, he was declared free.  Alec thought he could get his life back on track, though a slightly different one than what he’d planned.  Book 2, The Dead of Night, finds Alec being tested beyond anything he could have ever imagined, exploring how much he’s willing to trust those he doesn’t know and how far he’s willing to go to save himself and those around him.  When his enemy, the Devil, creates a weapon that is forbidden by vampire law, someone close to Alec gets hurt and a friend is abducted.  The situation quickly turns from bad to worse and Alec is soon overwhelmed by all of the obstacles facing him.  The plots and schemes of the Devil may break Alec, or they may just reveal a hidden strength he didn’t know he had, forcing him to become something he never imagined.
