News: Lady of the Shades UK Release Date

“The master of horror returns”

Author: Darren Shan

Genre: Horror, Age: Adult

Released: 30th August 2012 (UK version)

Darren Shan has so far kept his horror books to children and YA publications only. Finally, his newest book is out for adults. He is an extremely talented Irish author that has created, and completed several series. His most famous series would be The Saga of Darren Shan, a fictional story of a young vampire spread across 12 book as a four trilogies.

I’m really glad that The Saga of Darren Shan was published before all vampires became vanilla, because it’s truly gory and terrifying. I remember being scared of his children’s book when I was a teenager, I can’t even imagine what his adult book has in store. Definitely one to watch if you like quality writing and being scared out of your wits!


Ed, an American author on the hunt for a story for his next book, arrives in London looking for inspiration. A stranger in a strange city, he’s haunted by a deadly secret that refuses to stay buried, and no matter how hard he tries he cannot escape the manifest sins of his past. What Ed wants is answers, what he finds is something he definitely didn’t bargain for: the beautiful and untouchable Andeanna Menderes. Andeanna is a woman who is dangerously bound to one of London’s most notorious crime lords, and if they are caught together it could mean death for them both. Ensnared in an illicit affair that can only be conducted in the shadows, Ed’s world is turned upside down as a series of shattering revelations blurs the line between what’s real and what’s not…
