Okay, so based on what Daisy had to say, I've taken another stab at my query :) What do you all think?
Fleeing with bloody hands and stolen BMW, Leah must escape murder charges for a crime committed by shadow creatures only she can see. One thing will get her to stop running: making sure they don’t kill again.
Leah has spent her whole life trying to figure out why she alone can see the shadows and how they influence humans to commit rape, murder, and other horrible crimes. Penniless and running from the cops, she stumbles onto a small group of people who can also see the shadows and have learned how to kill them. When they offer her shelter, she jumps at the chance to fight back against the creatures. The shadow-hunter, Adam, makes the opportunity even sweeter. Together the group pieces together that the shadows are from another world and are just beginning their invasion. In order to stop them Leah will have to risk her life, and the lives of the hunters, to keep the world from being lost to darkness.
AN ABSENCE OF LIGHT is a New Adult light Sci-Fi, complete at 80,000 words. I believe it will appeal to fans of Julie Cross’ Tempest series. My novels, Colors Like Memories and The Chemistry of Fate, were released through MuseItUp Publishing. I can be found online at www.MeradethHouston.com.
