Shade: The Complete Trilogy by Merrie Destefano


A dangerous holiday. A deadly curse.

When Mary Shelley visits Lord Byron in the Swiss Alps, she hopes it will be a welcome distraction from her broken heart. Instead, she’s surrounded by enigmatic guests with dangerous secrets. From the moment of her arrival, Mary and the others are forbidden to leave the villa after dark.

But tales of feral beasts aren’t the only dangers. John Polidori, a handsome guest, fervently pursues local legends that the dead can rise. When the group plays a game of storytelling, they weave tales of nightmarish ghouls – and Mary learns their harmless stories have the power to conjure.

The dead will stalk the villa. And their royal master will stop at nothing to claim Mary as his own.
