Blurb: Gabriel has been gone longer than predicted, and Evander is growing increasingly worried each day that passes without his return. Confounded by their leaders’ lack of answers, Evander and the team begin to fear the worst.

In the midst of fruitlessly searching Miami for clues to the Daemon Abaddon’s whereabouts, Evander begins to have disturbingly vivid dreams. With a little help from a newly returned and empty-handed Michael and Barabbas, Evander discovers Gabriel has been calling out for help across their nascent bond, and they set off to rescue Gabriel from the depths of the Underworld.

Gabriel is old friends with torture, and his captors haven’t been gentle. Despite growing weaker every day, Gabriel resolves to survive long enough for rescue, or to die fighting, until a Dark Seer begins to dredge up the terror of Gabriel’s horrific childhood, threatening to destroy his mind and soul. Nearing the end, Gabriel manages a last-ditch effort to contact help, reaching out to Evander in his dreams.

Against all odds, Evander and the team fight through the Underworld to reach Gabriel and come face to face with mortality. Sacrifices made for the bonds of brotherhood nearly break them, and Gabriel learns the hard way that embracing the darkness while fighting for the light may be the only way to survive.

From the underbelly of Reno to the glitz and glam of Vegas, Gabriel, Evander, and the men they call family will be tested, and the final confrontation with Gabriel’s maker may be the end of everything they hold dear.

Surviving the Shadows is an approximately 100,000-word LGBTQ urban fantasy with a romantic subplot. It is a direct sequel to Shadowing the Light and reading the first book in the series is essential to enjoying this one. Please see the disclaimer on the Copyright Page for content advisories.

Exclusive Excerpt from Surviving the Shadows

by Miranda Turner

There were spriggans dragging broken limbs behind them as they continued to shuffle toward Gabriel and the rest of the team, fighting with arms hanging on to their bodies by the smallest piece of flesh, and dragging just their torsos across the ground without care to the damage they were doing to themselves to reach their goal. 

Gabriel wasn’t sure they could win this battle. The team’s lack of training against Daemons and other supernatural beings was coming back to bite them in the ass. It was a problem they would need to rectify, and soon, but right now, they had to make it out of this mess. 

“You guys get out of here. We’ve got this.” Evander waved Gabriel, Nico, and Rafe off. They did need to get to Vasim, and maybe by taking him out, they could take down this possessed army too. Gabriel hoped they could last long enough for them to do it. 

“Rafe,” Gabriel whispered. “Flash to the front door and take those bastards out as they’re coming out. Take out as many as you can.” 

“On it, Baby Boss,” Rafe replied before flashing away. 

“What the fuck? Baby Boss?” 

Nico snorted. “Let’s go.” Continue reading
