No escape. Those words haunt 16-year-old Scarlet Devena’s dreams. When she is deemed too dangerous to remain in society, she worries that she's some kind of monster. Sent to a reform school for witches, werewolves and vampires, she learns that she’s not like the others. She’s a Dhampir, part-human and part-vampire. When the creature from her nightmares threatens to possess her, she has to find a way to contain her vampire side before she becomes the bloodthirsty monster she's afraid of becoming.
She turns to an underground fight club established by the students to control her urges, and who is she kidding, she loves the thrill of the fight. When fighters begin to disappear and all evidence points to Scarlet as the culprit, she must race to prove her innocence before her true nature is exposed.
The only problem is that she’s not entirely sure she’s innocent.
SHADOW EMBRACED is a 55,000 word YA urban fantasy, which combines elements of Chuck Palahniuk’s FIGHT CLUB with Sony Picture’s UNDERWORLD.
