Product Description

''DRAW ONE IN THE DARK IS THE ONE NEW FANTASY NOVEL YOU HAVE TO BUY THIS YEAR!''-Dave Freer

Every one of us has the beast inside. But for Kyrie Smith, the beast is no metaphor. Since she was 15, when she first shape-shifted into a savage, black panther, Kyrie has questioned her humanity and moved from town to town, searching for a way to feel human again.

Kyrie's lonely life changes forever while waitressing at a cheap diner. Investigating screams from the parking lot, Kyrie stumbles upon a blood-spattered dragon crouching over a mangled human corpse. The dragon changes back into her co-worker, Tom, naked, dazed and unable to remember how he got there.

Thrust into a world of shape-shifting dragons, giant cats and other beasts waging a secret war behind humanity's back, Kyrie may find the answers she seeks—with help from Tom, a mythical object called the Pearl of Heaven, and her own inner beast.

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (DRM Rights Management).

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC 5* 27 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is fantastic. If i could only recomend one book this year, it would be 'Draw One in the Dark'. The caricatures are really well written and the story is great. If you are a fan of SF/Fantasy get this book! You will wish it was all true. Well done! Sarah Hoyt. 5*

4.0 out of 5 stars Homeless and shapeshifter 28 Sept. 2013
By humanitysdarkerside VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
"Draw One in the Dark" made me think about what it must be like to be a foster-kid and a homeless kid in the US. I haven't been a foster-kid anywhere. Nor have I worked with foster-children and am therefore unqualified to speak about its reality. But I have wondered what it must be like. That and being homeless. I've read books and articles about both but that doesn't show me the way the minds of people who have been in the foster-system and living on the street work. How would this affect a person's ability to deal with situations? Let's say you throw in being a shape-shifter on top of that. And on top of that you aren't really sure if you are a shape-shifter or if you are just having psychotic episodes that leave you covered in blood every once in a while.

This is the point that Kyrie Smith and Tom Ormson are both at when "Draw One in the Dark" begins. Some months after meeting each other they both receive revelations about their nature and are thrown together into one dangerous situation after the other. This means that life becomes even more chaotic for the two of them but they soldier on as best they can.

That tells me something about resilience. For regular people soldiering on can be difficult enough but for kids with an atypical background soldiering on must be even more of a struggle.

To my way of thinking "Draw One in the Dark" is partly about resilience and partly about bravery. It is also about messed up people making messed up decisions and living with the consequences of those. Trying to make amends as best we can is one of life's major lessons. What has been done can never be fixed, but maybe/hopefully some of the pain we inflict can be lessened.
