Hey, are you a fan of books that people like to read? I thought so. I knew so. I know my blog's readers, all both of them, and that's why I am pleased (as Punch!)(the character from the old Punch and Judy shows, not the drink they serve at parties in the 1950s)(the drink is very rarely in a good mood, whereas the puppet almost always is, I'm told, by people who know them both.)
Where was I? Oh, yeah: pleased as things that are pleased to bring you news of a great new book:
"Within my blood runs a thing our kind calls the Shadowing Disease. It shadows over, and bends everything to its will.
When the first blood- shift came, it tore through flesh and blood, threatening to bend me, break bone, shatter my mind and entrap my heart with its honeyed, seductive poison. It came with vicious intent, moving my thoughts and altering me forever.
The shift has caused a rift within me. No one was safe when it entrapped me in its claws of foul lust. But I have the only antidote against the evil that becomes me – his touch alone has the power to release the spurs of sweet darkness that clung on for dear life. I knew what I had to do; the desperation pulled my mind with the deep determination of a hungry predator.
But by the time the revelation raised me from the dark dungeon of my bounds – it might have been too late."
