K.C. Promotes Her Urban Fantasy Series with the First Book THE BOOK OF SHADE
by BWW News Desk - Feb 4, 2016

Lily Coltrane's to-do list for starting university life is pretty simple: 1. Make friends 2. Meet a cute guy 3. Survive her first year in Modern History In the little English town of Piketon this seems more than achievable, so much so that Lily even joins The Illustrious Minds Literary Society, an extra-curricular club that promises a truly unique social experience. What Lily doesn't bank on are the society's monthly visits to the mysterious Theatre Imaginique at the edge of town, a dark venue that houses the most obscure Cavalcade of carnival performers she has ever laid eyes on. Stranger still is the emergence of the theatre's enigmatic proprietor Lemarick Novel, a stupendous showman with a frosty wit who never seems to smile, and who raises a plethora of questions in Lily's fearful mind. How does he levitate with no sign of wires or mirrors? Why do the lightning bolts that shoot from his hands look so real? And why, of all the people in the theatre, do his pale eyes keep locking on hers? The answers to this and more lie buried in heritage and blood. The Book of Shade is opening, and Lily Coltrane will read it, whether she wants to or not. Other books in the series include The Bloodshade Encounters & The Songspinner (ISBN: 978-0993191503) and The Potioneer (ISBN: 978-1512359169). All three books in the Shadeborn series are available in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: The Book Of Shade Shadeborn, Volume 1 By K.C.
