Fade Unto Darkness by Brandy Nacole Genre: Paranormal Fantasy
All Hallows’ Eve, 1702.
A time of new traditions in a quaint Maryland colony. Anna anticipated a night of enchantment, instead she spots a ghost on the outskirts of town mocking their display.
Everything Anna has been taught warns her not to trust the apparition who calls himself Caspian. Yet she can’t fight her own curiosity when he offers to show her what lies beyond the veil of life and death.
Now, the clock is ticking. Can Anna find her way back to the land of the living before sunrise? Or will her essence be trapped forever in the valley of souls?
“Anna.” Her Papa’s voice traveled through the darkness, followed by her brother’s. She looked back to the town square and could see them walking toward the church. Surprised to find herself doing it, she stepped back further into the darkness. “You should go,” Caspian said. He looked beyond her and into the forest. “It is safer.” Anna fought against the unshakeable fear gnawing at her back. She knew not to turn around. “I want to stay with you.” The honesty of her words rattled her spirit. She knew nothing of Caspian, yet she wanted to know everything. Running away would leave her with nothing but regret. If she was to go to her Papa, she would never see Caspian again. He would disappear into the darkness and never return. This was her one and only chance.
