Umbra: Latin for shadow, shade, dark, dust, ghost.
During a solar eclipse the world becomes the area of Umbra… the area in total darkness, but isn’t the eclipse what everyone wants to see, the rare beauty and intriguing flaw? The sun, necessary to the world’s life, completely hidden and everyone wants a bit of it, even though certain death would be imminent.
The earth is caught between the contrasting moon and sun… Will it go for the sun- survival, life, warmth- or the solar eclipse- chilled, different, and ghostly?
But of course, it’s not as simple as that, there are forces working against the world and things are not as simple as saying so.
What will she choose: is there a choice when it’s destined?
Gracelynn Daniels is a girl set on self destruction, after she witnesses her father’s corpse dangling from the ceiling of their London home: it could only be suicide. And she has the silvery marks slashed across her body to tell the story. Somehow it only takes a moment of abuse from someone she loved, a tale of merciless heartbreak from someone she loved and a desperate mother and widow to suck her back to a world of sanity and sobriety. But regaining a life isn’t so simple, change is pending.
All of us have a history, but not all are aware. Maybe we are something we didn’t even know subsisted. All we need is that lustrous and lucrative key to enter it. But will we take that daunting leap? Do we have the choice?
