Penumbras by Braden Bell

He’d watched himself do terrible things inside the Shadowbox.

Things he hadn’t told anyone about.

Things he couldn’t stand to remember.


Conner Dell wants to be good–he really does. But he is terrified that he might be turning into a Darkhand, especially when new powers start to surface. What’s worse, the Stalker is following Conner, but no one else seems to be able to see him. The Magi think he might be hallucinating, the guilt of what happened in the Shadowbox keeps weighing on him, and his relationship with Melanie Stephens is complicating things. Even for a Magi, Conner knows his life is anything but normal.


Best friends? Check.

Field trips? Of course.

Fighting evil shadow monsters? Uh-oh.
