Back Blurb:

Her fall has just begun. Only his touch can save her from the shift that could destroy it all.

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 deal life.

I knew what I had to do; the desperation pulled my mind with the deep determination of a hungry predator.

By the time the revelation raised me from the dark dungeon of my bounds – it might have been too late.








Carlyle is an South African award winning author, with a flair for mixing genres and

adding loads of drama to every story she creates. For now she is happy to take

over the world and convert non Sci-fi believers.

Her goal as an author is to touch people’s lives, and help others love their differences

and one another by delivering strong messages of faith, love and hope within

every outrageous world she writes about.

“I love to swim, fight for the trees, and am a food lover who is driven by my

passion for life. I dream that one day my stories will change the lives of

countless teenagers and have them obsess over the world literacy can offer them

instead of worrying about fitting in. Never sacrifice who you are, it’s in the

dark times that the light comes to life.”


used writing as a healing tool and that is why she started her very own writers

support event – SAIR bookfestival.


be a helping hand for those who strive to become full times writers, editors,

bloggers, readers and cover artists – it’s a crazy world out there you don’t

have to go it alone!”
