Shadow Tears is the first book in a series. In this book you meet Selena Goodwin who discovers more about her heritage than she ever wanted. She has special abilities that are fascinating while others are frightening to her. All her beliefs are tested when she finds out that the mortal rules don’t apply to everybody or everything. Her knowledge of the supernatural and myths might become her only means to survive. She must accept who she is meant to be.
Being thrust into a world full of secrets, danger, and a family she didn’t know existed is overwhelming, not to mention a responsibility. Luckily she still has the love and support of her adoptive father who had known all along who she is meant to be. To make things worse she discovers her very existence is threatened by an unknown enemy. The normal obstacles of being a teenager are hard enough.
