Everything you know is a lie… 

Eighteen-year-old Grace is sick of running. For over two thousand years the Angels have hunted the Half-Born, determined to maintain the barrier that conceals the magical world from Human eyes. Grace and her foster family have survived capture by living amongst humans, but the noose is tightening as the spell binding their magic begins to fail. 

When unexpected allies send Grace and her family crashing into the world of The Shadow Children, she finds herself at the epicentre of a battle to save those she loves. 

But who can she trust when everyone has the face of an angel?

The Shadow Children (The Demon-Born Trilogy #1)
by L.C. Hibbett

The Shadow Children(The Demon-Born Trilogy, #1)L.C. Hibbett’s THE SHADOW CHILDREN is a tale of chaos, secrets and lies. One girl will struggle to come to terms with who she is and what her life has become when tragedy strikes and every day becomes a battle to survive when trusting in others could be a fatal mistake.

At eighteen, Grace has always lived on the fringe, moving with her foster family at a moment’s notice, but when there is no place left to run, she must enter a world of demons and angels where she will become the hunted. Grace is a Half-Born, her kind fits nowhere in the scheme of life and the girl who wants only to live in obscurity and normalcy can do so no more.

Prepare to be thrust into a world in chaos, filled with a cast of characters that defy count, some will hide behind their facades, some will bare their souls, and some, like Grace are ill-prepared to understand the danger that lurks all around her. Who can she trust? How can she save her family? Why has she been kept in the dark for all of her life? Where did she come from? When her life is in grave danger, why must her heart cause her even more pain?

Hang on tight and pay close attention, there is no warm up for this tumultuous ride! L.C. Hibbett will plunge you directly into the chaos, allowing us to feel what Grace feels, emotions from confusion, to terror to complete frustration and loss as her life lay in the balance of opposing councils and no clear answers are available.

A very detailed read that bursts forth with little background in the beginning but huge twists that will keep readers on their toes. Grace felt real, she was confused, scared and uninformed, but her growth is admirable considering all the odds being stacked against her.
