Shadowmancer by Jeremy Mac
To the unassuming eye it is like any other of its kind, a mere shadow. But for its host, it is much more.
Playmate. Friend. Instigator. Protector... Its influence is subtle but calculated, and as the boy grows older its influence grows stronger, darker, and depraved.
Will the young man be able to stay in control? Or will a hunger unlike anything in this world overtake him entirely?
And what's more, who is the woman that comes to him only in dreams? Wanton and seductive, she is stalked by an all consuming darkness that very well may hold the answer to it all.
