So, I have had the idea to do something like this for a while. I would love to do something like this with audio and voices, but I think that’ll come later down the line when and if I ever have a proper audiobook. Until that point, this is a little teaser for The Advent of Shadows, but unlike my previous teaser, which was an extract from the early part of the book, this time I have taken quotes from the book.
They are completely out of context and have no names attached and come from different parts of the book, so you can try and figure out who is saying what, to who, and why in your own mind. I picked some quotes I thought would capture some important elements of the book, but also, tease the tone that the story will be taking.
And… there might be a little more to some of them than that. Aaaand… there are no errors with any of the quotes. To fully understand them, well, I guess you’ll just have to wait until it’s out won’t you?
Just trust me when I say a lot happens in this story, so many surprises and I don’t really want to give away anything more than I already have. So, I think this will be the last tease I provide for a good while.
No idea when I’ll next be posting on here, but in the meantime, I’ll be enjoying the lockdown in whatever way I can, and hopefully the next you hear of me, it’ll be during brighter days!
That’s all I’ve got to say, and I’m out.

“It is clear the Umbrisa-Kin have some greater goal. One that the Umbrisa left them with.”

“Standing around in front of something like that for two-hundred years? Yeah, I’m alright on that one.”
“The Gods must have created it for some purpose! Where else could it have come from?!”
“Daybreak. That’s us. The light that breaks through the dark!”

Your makers… still asleep they all are. My makers… awake. Always. Always awake.
“This is the Fate you deserve.”
