He agrees, hoping the village has a means for him to contact home. But the village is not what he expected.

Tanya, informs him she is the Witchdoctor´s daughter and that they can never leave the peninsula they live on. The land is blocked by an impassable desert to the mainland and sea monsters protect the water. But Carl is different than the rest of the villagers.

His second task is to win the heart of Tanya, who is forbidden to have a man in her life.

It begins with the breaking of a gentle monster, with the capture of girl who dwells in dreams, with the hidden strength of a young wizard, with the bitter rage of a wounded vampire. It ends in victory… or a world drowning in Shadows, overrun with Death. Catch up on Books 1-3 of the Liminality Series in preparation for the release of Book 4 in 2018. THE MEDIUM: Lenny is a defective vampire. Shy, insecure, and literally unable to kill, he tries very hard to avoid notice until the night he is kidnapped by a creature far worse, a vicious abuser determined to turn him into what a vampire ought to be. Worse, Lenny is also a medium, a creature born for the sole purpose of aiding the dead, and Sebastian is definitely a dead thing in need of help. Trapped by Sebastian´s lethal mind control and by the compulsion of his own dual nature, Lenny´s only hope is Kim, a practical young wizard tasked with hunting Sebastian down, but her ancient and powerful family is not nearly as accepting as she. Perhaps she can save Lenny from his captor and from the spark of violence growing inside him… THE MORA: Jadwiga Dąbrowska is a mora, a creature whose spirit feeds on the dreams of others. Strange though her life has always been, Jadwiga could never have expected to wake from her own murder in a bizarre mirror world, chained body and soul to a terrifyingly powerful being that calls itself Twarz Cienia, the Shadow´s Face. Now, with no choice but to obey the Twarz, she must contend with forces outside her understanding, fighting in a war that will never end. And still she can´t be sure that her freedom was a fair price for her life. Kim Reed has spent six years searching for a lost friend, but her search is interrupted by the threat of war. The Votadini, an ancient Circle of Scottish wizards, are making yet another bid for dominance, and this time, they may be backed by black magic. With her own magic weak and atrophied, Kim isn´t sure how useful she would be in a fight, and her years of research on the undead have made her an object of suspicion wherever she goes. She is not ready for wizard politics, for war, or for dealing with spies that can manipulate her dreams. All she wants is her friend back, but there are Shadows standing in her way. THE MAGE: In the midst of a building magical war, Kim Reed thought she had found a bit of peace, a silver lining. Lenny, the friend she lost years ago, is safe, the monster who kidnapped him is dead, and this war cannot last long with so much raw power ranged against the enemy. But Lenny is not the man he was. There is something dark in him, something growing stronger by the day. Something that has caught the attention of the Shadows that live between the worlds. She knows she cannot fight her many battles alone, but allies are few and far between. Jadwiga, the mora, remains secretive and aloof, and Kim´s old friend Daniel has a bloodier past than she had ever dreamed. And it is possible, just possible, that worse is coming than war. As Shadows close in, and the Veil between worlds grows tangled and thick, Death has gone missing, and soon, the dead will crowd the living from the face of the earth. [Cliffhanger warning.]
