Matthew is book 2 of the Shadow Realm chronicles! Matthew is available on Amazon and Walmart and other books stores. Let’s take a look at the first chapter and get sucked into the world of vampires, shadows and more.
A large mansion sat on the outskirts of town. Most people never went there. The residents of River’s Peak were at the funeral for Hunter Marks. No one was near the mansion to see the fire that spewed from the fireplace as a shadow stepped out of the flames. The shadow formed into a man who resembled Matthew, the son of Alexander Marks. He looked over himself in the mirror, admiring what he saw. His skin was red, and he wore raggedy clothes with burnt edges. He had horns protruding from the top of his head. With a flick of his wrist, the man’s clothes changed to a black tailored suit with a maroon tie. He admired his face, but he knew he had to blend in. “Well, this won’t work here.” He snapped his fingers, and his horns disappeared as his red skin faded back to his original human pallor. He smirked. “Much better.” His large muscles shrank. “Hello, weak body. We meet again.” He laughed. “I will make them pay for what they did. I will find you, Maurelle and Shawn, and we will rule all the realms together. ”He formed a dome over the town by waving his hand as Maeve had done before. “They won’t know a thing.” Unbeknownst to Matthew, Maurelle’s magic was still affecting the town. She had tried her best to hide her children from her father. Maurelle’s spell was the reason no one remembered Gwen and Tommy. It was the reason they could stay safe for so long. Matthew was not aware of Maurelle’s spell, so as soon as his own dome went up, he forgot Maurelle. Everyone forgot her. Her face, her name, her voice, her love, lost to him. Lost to everyone. He looked in the mirror once again. His eyes, once filled with love, were now dark and grey. He had lost the love of his life. She was dead, he thought. His anger grew because he blamed his parents for her death. “They abandoned you and Shawn, and I will make them pay. ”He knew he had a wife; he knew he had a son, but he couldn’t remember Maurelle’s face or her name. His blind hatred of the town was overtaking him. Why can’t I see her? You will pay for what you did to my wife? I will kill you and leave you to rot in The Shadow Realm. He fell to the floor crying and vowing revenge.
