Casting Shadows

Buy Now: Paperback or Kindle Edition


Edward Kelley wants to destroy the world. His family is dead and his odd habits have made him a pariah in the small town of Hurst, Ohio. After the unexpected arrival of an anonymous package, Edward quickly discovers the tools to forge his malevolent fantasies into reality. Yet, he soon finds that he is not the villain of his own story and, with the help of a surrogate grandmother, an undead servant, and a foul-mouthed cop, he is fast on the road to becoming an unlikely hero. Casting Shadows is a quirky amalgamation of Contemporary Fantasy and Magical Realism, with a sprinkling of Classical Literature, Necromancy, and Russian Folklore added for good measure.

    It’s been a long time since something has leapt out at me as exceptional. I came across an ad for Casting Shadows at one of the web comics I follow and was so intrigued, I got a sample chapter off Amazon. Within five pages, I was hooked and it drew me along so quickly, I finished it within one sitting. Thank you. I’ve even enticed my daughter to want to read it. I really, really hope to see more of Edward Kelley.

  4. Last Christmas I was given a Kindle, without a clue how to use it, but after a few months I discovered how to use it, ever since then I’ve used it on and off for months, so when I saw this, I figured, ‘I have a Kindle, might as well give this book a try’.
    I couldn’t put it down, it was amazing, loved every moment and I hope there’s more because I’m hooked! 8D
