New Release - Fading Into the Shadows by Kelly Hashway
I'm excited to share Kelly Hashway's newest release:
When sixteen-year-old Ella
Andrews’s best friend, Avery, goes missing, she’ll do anything to get him
back—starting with punching the no-brain cop who couldn’t care less about the
Ella’s convinced Avery’s been
kidnapped, and she tries everything to find him—even following a strange shadow
to another world where the constellations are real-life figures in the sky. But
three star groups have fallen and are destroying the world.
The fallen constellations are not
the only enemy. Melanie, the princess of Stellaris, is forcing Ella, Avery, and
an army of other kids kidnapped from their world to fight the rogue
constellations, even as the land is draining away their life. The longer they
stay, the more they fade into substanceless shadows—a fate worse than death.
I wrote this post when King of Bad first published. But I thought I'd run it now since I've written another anti-hero. Writing a good bad guy is an interesting journey. You're constantly wondering if you have enough badness for it to be believable, with enough goodness that your readers won't abandon him/her.
