Sacrifice: ‘A surrender of something of value as a means of gaining something more desirable or of preventing some evil.'
Lili is in love with Sam. Or is she? Has he simply cast some sort of spell on her? Can vampires do that? Indecision and self-doubt nearly cripple Lili as she contemplates returning to Australia to be with Sam—after all, what does a nineteen year-old California girl know about living with vampires and ghosts?
There are many challenges ahead of her, and each time she meets one Lili discovers she is stronger than she thought. But even so, is she prepared to make the hardest decision of her young life, and learn the true meaning of sacrifice?
In this second instalment of The Absent Shadows Trilogy Lili’s journey continues, across wide expanses of sea and land, as she seeks to confirm true love and fulfill her destiny.
