Shadows On The Border

Release Date: 9th March 2019.

This is the sequel to Lost In Time and the books make most sense when read in order.

Newspaper reporter Lew Tyler and his lover, Detective Alec Carter, are working out the parameters of their new relationship. Meanwhile, Lew is trying to decide whether he wants to stay in the 1920s or find a way to get back to 2016 and Alec is trying to decide whether he can bear the vulnerability of being in love with someone who uses such dangerous magic.

Fenn is a Hunter from the Outlands, come through the Border to search for the murderous Creature and its offspring at the behest of The Ternants, who maintain the balance between Fenn’s world and ours. Fenn strikes a bond with Sergeant Will Grant, Alec’s second in command, who is keen to learn more about his own magical abilities and as time goes on also becomes keen to learn more about Fenn.

Fenn has their own painful secret and when they appear to have betrayed the team and and goes missing in London, Will is devastated. He has to choose between following his heart or following his duty.

Moving through the contrasting rich and poor areas of post-First World War London from West End hotels to the London docklands, they need to work together to capture the Creature and choose who and what is important enough to hold on to with both hands and what they may need to give up to make that happen.

release date: Shadows On The Border

Shadows On The Border, the sequel to Lost In Time will be published by JMS Books on 9th March.

Shadows follows Alec and Lew as they explore how their nascent relationship works and whether Lew is actually going to be able to stay in the 1920s, in what to him is the past.

We also meet Fenn, who is from beyond the border (Beyond The Border was the working title of this sequel but it didn’t quite fit by the time I’d got to the end). Fenn is searching for an escaped Creature, probably the one that Alec and Lew and their team have been dealing with. Fenn isn’t human. And seems to sit somewhere in between male and female. Alec’s second in command, Sergeant Will Grant, is nevertheless drawn to them and eventually finds himself more invested in Fenn’s mission than that of his own team.
