Darkest Light cover!


I’m so very excited to share the cover of Darkest Light! Companion book to Half World, the cover and illustrations are being done once again (so lucky!) by the most amazing artist Jillian Tamaki .

I’m still working on finishing the novel but the catalogue comes early and what a nice incentive to see the book cover looking so real after years of working on a project… ~_____~ . Darkest Light is available for pre-order through Amazon. And I also encourage you to order it at your favourite independent local bookstore!

Description of Darkest Light:

The breathtaking follow-up novel to the award-winning Half World

The recently reunited realms of the Flesh, Half World and the Spirit are again at risk—something has been left undone. Gee, adopted as an infant, has been kept ignorant of his troubled past. Now at sixteen, he is a loner both despised and feared by his classmates. Dark feelings, unbidden, slowly grow inside him. Even as he struggles to control them, his past catches up with him and compels him to journey to Half World. Abandoning his adoptive grandmother and the place he has called home, Gee must face what he used to be in order to determine his fate and the fate of the Three Realms. Aided by a surly cat and a troubled newfound friend, Gee must fight the monstrous and the horrific in Half World. Most difficult of all, he must overcome his own propensity for evil.

The nightmarish adventure picks up sixteen years after Melanie’s return in Half World (2009, Puffin). With a new dark hero whose unlikely companions are a heartless cat and a self-destructive Neo Goth girl, Darkest Light is a compelling journey through despair in a desperate search for redemption.

Of note: this is my first novel with a male main character….
