Can she escape the shadows and face the truth before the darkness destroys her?

"If the enemy is a fire, the evil is its shadow, flickering upon the wall."

"That's very poetic, Miss Bellini. I just wish I knew what it meant."

Miranda's new home is a dull seaside town at the edge of the world, the sort of forgotten place where nothing ever happens. Until something does. Something strange and sinister. With her schoolteacher and her classmates, who might be more clued in than they let on, Miranda sets out to uncover the mystery. Her bravery borders on recklessness. She thinks she's chasing shadows, tortured spirits from the past, but could true darkness lie within? Before it destroys her, Miranda's got to figure out how, with a mixture of science and magic, to harness the evil!

An electrifying paranormal thriller that will have readers guessing till the end.

Daniel Blythe is the author of several of the official Doctor Who tie-in novels, an offshoot of his work as a screenwriter for the BBC sci-fi television series. He studied Modern Languages at Oxford and teaches Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University. He lives in Derbyshire, England, with his wife and their two children.

Read from the Book

From Shadow Breakers:I close my eyes, and the rushing sound is now something else entirely:I am standing at the edge of a field, and the slim figure of a girl is running toward me in slow motion. Behind her, an entire forest is on fire, a wall of flame, the smoke billowing into the sky. I try to focus.The girl skids to a halt, staring at me from a smoke-blackened face, her hair wild and singed. She shakes her head silently and turns as if to run."Wait!" I call, or try to. I have no idea if the words are torn away by the wind. "Tell me who you are!"She stops, facing the flames. As I approach, I feel a sense of dread. Why? Surely she's only a girl, like me. I can see my own hand reaching out toward her. I am almost touching her shoulder.Then she turns back to look at me...
