Ennae is a parallel world joined to our own world by the Sacred Pool, a portal that can only be opened by one with the Guardian blood running through their veins. It is through this watery gateway that Khatrene leaves her modern-day life behind forever, drawn into a quest that will take her into the depths of the unknown.

Khatrene must fulfil her destiny as The Light, the woman whose child will unite the four elemental worlds. At each turn are real and imagined enemies who will do everything in their power to prevent her from fulfilling the prophecy, including the ethereal and erotic shadow woman, the enigmatic tattooed man, even her beloved brother Mihale.

Talis, her appointed Guardian, must help her through the dangerous terrain of Ennae, sacrificing everything to ensure her safety in a land where magic prevails and nothing is as it seems.

From an exciting new voice in Australian fantasy fiction comes the first book in the Shadow Through Time trilogy. Beautifully crafted and written, Destiny of the Light combines intrigue, magic and horror to create a reality that is out of this world.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fairly standard fantasy Unhappy young woman drawn to another world to find she is a princess and she is to fulfill a prophesy. Her brother is the king, there is betrayal, magic, violence, love, nomadic tribes and lots of walking. The heroine has no idea what is happening a drifts from event to another. This is mostly set up for the rest of the trilogy, but, while I did enjoy this, I have little interest in reading the rest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the effort This novel captivates from the moment go and the clash of discourses used by the protagonist when compared to the remaining characters of the novel makes for a great read. A strong storyline with depth and quality to keep the epic saga going is another feature worth noting. Humour, drama, romance, action and suspense combine to make the book a top addition to the epic fantasy genre, and excluding the remaining 2 books in this story I'm sure there'll be more to come from this author!
