THERE IS MORE THAN ONE ROAD TO REDEMPTION
Sometimes the past can’t be forgotten. Sometimes the truth refuses to be buried. And sometimes the dead won’t stay dead.
It began as a simple request: Journey to the Northern Jungles and bring a wayward son back to the safety of his farm and family before the racial tension that is building between humans and dark elves erupts into civil war. But life is never simple for Sevy, and she soon finds herself entangled in a bloody battle of good versus evil, love versus hate.
Old friends and enemies reunite, familial bonds are broken, and loyalty is tested. And in the midst of the steamy, sultry jungles, the ghosts of a serial killer’s victims come out to play. Sevy, as petulant and irascible as ever, must overcome her personal demons in order to expose a madman and bring peace back to the kingdom. But just how much of her sanity must she sacrifice to help her friends? And how can she save anyone when she can’t even save her own soul?

“These characters are just amazing, complex and so very real. I love Sevy’s bravery and dogged determination and she is now one of my all-time favourite female characters. The story is as well crafted as the first one, and a bit faster paced with more action which is always a plus for me!”
SHARON STEVENSON, AUTHOR OF SINNERS NEVER SLEEP
“Shades of War has cemented my affection for the Sevy series. Thief did interest me and draw me in, but really Shades of War is what made me realize how much meaning this series has. Although it may only be a fantasy book, it does bring to light some significant things in our society, one outstanding one being discrimination.”
GERALDINE, CORRALLING BOOKS REVIEWS
“The plot snakes throughout the book ensnaring your imagination…no less than a fabulous follow up to Thief.”
