Six days. Two worlds. When it’s through, Kith Canto’s life will never be the same.

Born into a world of droughts and fading magic, Kith is destined for an unremarkable life, but for one thing. Six days a week, she crosses the gate between Sundown and its neighboring world, where she breakfasts with shadows.

The shadows teach Kith, telling her stories of worlds abundant with life. But Sundown is different. There, Kith is a shade-child, a fragile-bodied outcast with no hope of finding love or leaving her parents’ home.

Then a handsome young man shakes up Kith’s life, just as the shadows begin to teach a forbidden subject. They have their sights on her world, and the girl considered too weak to do anything is suddenly responsible for everything—including saving Sundown.

Proving the worlds wrong has never had such high stakes.

About the Author

C.K. Beggan writes magical adventures for unconventional heroes. Her first novel, Girl of Shadow and Glass, tells the story of a physically fragile girl in a world of fading magic.

C.K.’s writing career began with short literary fiction, written under a different name. Her short stories were nominated for the Pushcart Prize and the storySouth Million Writers award, but something was missing. Since returning to her first love (fantasy, of course!), one of her favorite things to do is adding a little magic into some of her unpublished older stories.

C.K.’s hobbies include crafting, painting and creating the web comics Princess Disasterface, Growin’ Pup and Social Isolation. She also blogs and reviews books, but not as often as she would like. The remainder of her time is spent with her puppy.
