Darkest Shadows by Allyson Gottlieb
Genre: urban fantasy novella
Release date: December 7th 2013
The missing story...
A would-be dictator has gone to prison. The dimension is safe from a tyrant's control. But not everything is as perfect as it appears on paper.
Tamara Kingsley is supposedly a hero. But she's about to discover that her good deed doesn't actually mean much when it comes to rebuilding a life for herself. No matter how hard she tries to escape it, the stigma of her past is always lurking, holding her back from fully embracing a new life.
And even in Alpha, Valentine hasn't given up. He'll spend the next twenty years planning and scheming, waiting for the opportunity to rejoin the world and have his vengeance. On the top of his hit list? Tamara, of course.
Also in Darkest Shadows, there will be an exclusive short story (called Darkest Before Dawn) that takes place after the ending of Darkest Legacy.
Darkest Legacy, book 1, is running a free promo for Thursday 10/31 and Friday 11/1. The link is below:
The "supplementary material" I mentioned is an interview with Valentine, the male lead, because Darkest Shadows is told half in his perspective (while Darkest Legacy was all from the perspective of Tamara, the female lead).
Allyson Gottlieb was born in California, but can't wait to go away to college and trade sunshine, bikinis, and fruit smoothies for autumn leaves, winter coats, and hot cocoa. When she's not busy working on her next bestseller, she can be found devouring books, obsessing over far too many TV shows, spending time with her family and friends... and occasionally doing some homework. She has been writing since second grade and has no plans to stop until she runs out of stories to tell--so basically never.https://www.facebook.com/AllysonGottliebAuthor
