V. Shaw (VShaw) | 7 comments Hey, guys.

I'm a new author, and I've recently self-published a collection of YA fiction called The Lady of Chains and Other Stories, which is available on Amazon. The tales are a mix of fantasy and horror with an extract of my up-coming novel The Fragile Things. Synopsis:

“Remember; you have seventy-two hours to do the deed and not a moment longer. Cut her throat and remove her heart. That, my girl, is the only way to destroy the wretched creature.”

Greylock. A city supported by a network of scaffolding, bleeding rust and wheezing steam. Patrolled by an army of ‘metal men’—creatures who’re designed for nothing more than to kill and destroy. Nothing grows. Nothing truly lives.

The tower stands like an ice-pick, pushing through a snarl of thorns, resting upon the outskirts of Greylock. Its shadow is cast across the city like an elongated clock-hand, chipping away the hours, the days. The years. It is home to the Lady of Chains, a woman incarcerated without a sentence. A woman who almost single-handedly destroyed
the world . . .

Viola, a young orphan girl, has been thrust into this nightmarish world by the devious Mrs Casket, caretaker of the tower and maid to the mysterious lady. She’s been given a task which could either see her demise or be her salvation.

But who is the Lady of Chains? And why does she insist that she is connected to Viola? With the clock ticking and the metal men drawing near, Viola is about to learn that not everything is what it seems . . .

A spellbinding fantasy with elements of steampunk.

Also contains an preview of the up-coming horror novel, The Fragile Things.


I am currently looking for reviewers (Goodreads, Amazon, blogs etc). If anybody is interested, a copy can be gifted to your Kindle for free. Feel free to send me a message
