Shade: The Complete Trilogy: A Re-Imagining of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein
by Merrie Destefano
A dangerous holiday.
When Mary Shelley accepts an invitation to Lord Byron’s house in the Swiss Alps, she hopes it will distract from her broken heart. Instead, she’s surrounded by enigmatic guests with dangerous secrets. From the moment she arrives, the party is more than it seems, as Mary and the others are strictly forbidden from leaving the villa after dark.
But tales of feral beasts aren’t the only rumors whispering through the halls. Doctor John Polidori, a mysterious party guest, pursues local legends that the dead can rise. When the group plays a game of storytelling, they weave tales of nightmarish ghouls inspired by the myths—and Mary soon realizes their harmless stories have the power to conjure.
Twisted creatures will come to call. The dead will stalk the villa. And their royal master will stop at nothing to claim Mary as his own…
