Light in My Dark

by Jean Gilbert and William Dresden




GENRE: YA Fantasy






Sixteen-year-old Harper Deveraux has longed for an adventure ever since her mother died of cancer four years ago. Much to her dismay, she is stuck in Glen Eden, a small mountain town in upstate New York that does little to fuel her hopes and dreams.


Another year of high school has begun, and with the Moon Dance only a few weeks away, Harper suddenly finds herself torn between the affections of two boys: her best friend Jack, and a new boy from the City named Knes who might not be from this world.


Strange things begin to happen in Glen Eden when Harper uncovers a mystery that involved her mother and a realm shrouded in darkness that lies beyond the wall… A realm that Knes intends to take her to. Only Jack stands in his way.


Light In My Dark, is an action-packed modern YA fantasy, filled with dark forces, love, and self-discovery.




Excerpt One:


The heat under Harper’s sweater disappeared the longer she stared at the house. Goose bumps tickled her flesh. She wrapped her arms around her body, but the chill remained. Even so, her eyes refused to look away from the house.


“Well,” she said,” in the real world it is said that she fell through the floor in a part of the house that was still under construction at the time. No mystery there. Just an accident.”


Jack raised an eyebrow at her. “In the middle of the night? Who goes walking around a construction site in the middle of the night? That’s just stupid. What gets me is that’s what all the tourists come to see, not the lake or the mountains or anything else that Glen Eden has to offer. Give the house a ghost, and they come running.”


“Maybe it deserves a ghost. At least then it would be lived in.”


Neither one said anything for a moment as they stared at the mansion.


Finally, Jack spoke again. “There must be over a hundred rooms in there. It’d take days to explore them all.”


“It’d be an adventure.”


“You’d like that, wouldn’t you?”
