Release day: Between the Shadow and the Soul!

Today I finally get to share Between the Shadow and the Soul with you! It's the first in the Darkest Soul duology. This is the longest book I've ever written and the first told in dual POV (Nela + Darko). It's sometimes creepy, sometimes magical, sometimes scary and sometimes romantic. I hope you'll love it as much as I do.

“You always do that, you know,” Alec said.
I swallowed a gummy bear. “Do what?”
“Bite their heads off first.”
I shrugged. “It’s the nice thing to do. If you could choose, would you rather be eaten alive starting at your feet or would you want it to be over quickly?”
Susanne Winnacker, Impostor

“I do care. That's why I hunt them. But if you've seen what I have, then you learn to deal with the murders and disappearances. You learn to push it aside and move on. The other life isn't here anymore. This new world has its own rules. Survival of the fittest is one of them. If you're hoping for kindness and pity, don't hold your breath.”
Susanne Winnacker, The Other Life

“3 years, 1 month, 1 week, and 6 days since I'd seen daylight.”
Susanne Winnacker, The Other Life
