In this world there are creatures that lurk in the shadows. As a child I once played with them. As a teenager I began to fear them and became victim to their attacks. As an adult I now learn, that no matter how much I try to escape the grasp of this world, I inevitably was born into it. They are what only I see of a night. They are the reason I fear sleep. At times my dreams are not my own, they creep into and distort my vision and understanding. They trick me to lower my guard so they can attack me. They have many names and are spoken about in many religions. I only think of them as one: My Nightmare.
The Shadow Minds Journal by Kia Carrington-Russell
Vivian died that night, but she was reborn, possessed by demons that gave her incredible powers and prized by her master, the Underworld Lord, Haymen. Now she is his puppet, a Guardian tasked with upholding the treaty between demons and angels in the human city of Shabeah, a cesspool of trouble. With seven demons “contracted” to her, she is almost invincible, yet still, in her dreams, she is helpless and hunted by demonkind. What do those dreams mean? What makes Vivian special to Haymen? What does the Angel of War want from her? Sure, he wants her punished for a crime he thinks she has committed, but there is more…and time is running out for Vivian, because THEY are coming for her and the possession she doesn’t even know about.
Enter the dark world of Kia Carrington-Russell’s THE SHADOW MINDS JOURNAL and discover what really lurks in the shadows of humanity’s world. Fast paced, edgy and dark, Ms. Carrington-Russell has told her tale through the POVs of her main characters, like a journey through their minds, seeing events through their eyes as the tension builds and this tale unfolds. The atmosphere has been set, it is as shadowy as the world Vivian must live in and it is riveting.
Brilliantly told, with fabulous characters, this is a powerful addition to the dark paranormal genre and the feeling created is that there is so much more to come!!
