D.H. Nevins hurtles you into a world of half-angels, demons and tormented love in this driving, dystopian sequel to Wormwood.
Half-angels, known as Nephilim, have all but destroyed the surface of the Earth. Yet for Kali Michaels, her life is now much more complicated than simply surviving. Grappling with her own powerful identity, she worries her connection to the world of Shadows could destroy those around her.
And what if she hurts Tiamat Wormwood, the Nephilim outcast who has given everything to save her? Tiamat and Kali know they have no future—not when outside forces and Kali’s own power push both the humans and the Nephilim to the brink of extinction.
As she fights to stop the inevitable, she is led to question who her real enemies are, and whether the ultimate threat may actually be herself.
Excerpt“Do we have to go back?”
“No way. We’re not going to be stopped by a few branches,” I said. Keeping one hand on his back, I reached over him and broke off a few more of the limbs that were directly in our way. I grabbed a thicker branch for balance and stepped around Bram, positioning myself in front of him. “I’m going to sit down here. Just put your arms around my neck and your legs around my middle, okay?”
I lowered myself onto the log and he obeyed silently. I could feel his small frame quivering as he latched onto my back. “Stop looking down,” I told him. “It’ll be easier.”
“How’d you know?”
“That you were looking down?” I felt him nod his head against my back and I laughed quietly. “You know you’ve been staring down there almost constantly. It wasn’t hard to guess.”
“Well,” he said in a soft voice, “it’s scary down there.”
“I know, kiddo.”
“And,” he continued, his voice even quieter, as though he hoped it would fade into nothingness, “your Shadow is down there.”
I stilled. “You don’t ever have to worry about my Shadow. I control it … and I wouldn’t hurt you with it, Bram.”
“Yeah. Alright,” he said softly.
I couldn’t see the expression on his face, but he sounded like he believed me—a tentative belief, perhaps, but it would do.
Angel of Shadow Playlist—D.H. Nevins
Music is an invaluable component of my writing journey. Often, I get my best ideas while listening to some haunting melodies and simply letting my mind wander. That’s right! I get to say, “I’m working,” while listening to music and daydreaming! Sweet.
I also love to have music on in the background while I’m writing, although these tunes need to be free from distracting lyrics—so I choose instrumentals or songs with lyrics in another language, like those haunting Icelandic tracks by Sigur Ros.
Here are my top picks from Angel of Shadow’s playlist:
We Move Lightly by Dustin O’Halloran (I’ve only been able to find it on YouTube and SoundCloud)
Somewhere a Clock is Ticking by Snow Patrol
Conscience by Muse
Kveikur by Sigur Ros
Fljotavik by Sigur Ros
Foreground by Grizzly Bear
Demons by Imagine Dragons
Incantation by Loreena McKennitt
What I’ve Done by Linkin Park
They Move on Tracks of Never-ending Light by This Will Destroy You
The Catastrophe and the Cure by Explosions in the Sky
The Dead by Wintersleep
So here’s what I suggest. Finish the book. Listen to the music. Daydream. Then I swear, you’ll see what I see. —D.H. Nevins
