Ikena Ralliday is plagued with nightmares of her father's brutal death at the hands of a monstrous Sinturi, those abominations which feast on humans to survive. They snatch children from their beds, infect animals with their darkness and serve one purpose only - to overrun Nevera and destroy the magical Cloaks.
When Ikena - a human - discovers that she herself is a magical, she should obey the law and report to the Cloak army. But that would mean never again seeing her home and all those she loves again. She can hide her magic away, but it's becoming impossible to control. Besides, no matter how much she resists, Ikena is drawn more and more into the heart of the endless war between the Cloaks and the Sinturi.
It seems her fate is tied to that of Nevera's and danger is always lurking.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:
"One of my favourite Fantasy books - a mixture between The Hunger Games and Harry Potter. Ikena is a strong female character who develops amazingly as the story goes on. With gripping chapters and descriptions, this book had me eager to read on and I can't wait for the next one!" - Goodreads Reviewer.
"If you like fantasy novels then you will want to pick up Melissa Hawkes debut novel 'Cloaked Shadows'. This book takes readers on a fun adventure in which Ikena and her friends must risk it all to fight the darkness that is infecting their world... I enjoyed following Hawkes' wide cast of characters on their adventure, and have found myself attached to each one of them!" - Goodreads Reviewer.
