This Saturday 20th June, the young adult fantasy novel ‘Shadows’ is being launched at Ponsonby Community centre, a book based in a fantastical version of Auckland.

Sam Blood started writing the book when he was nine years old. He has spent the last fourteen years redrafting and honing it.

‘Shadows’ begins in Auckland city before moving to a parallel Auckland both similar and alien to the one we know. The book focuses on a lonely gamer called Griffin, who is sucked into a world of magical creatures called Shadows. Befriending an eccentric dragon-parrot named Cirrus, the unlikely pair are hunted by an Empire that views friendships between humans and Shadows as a dangerous sickness. The book explores the positive and negative relationships we have with ourselves.

‘Shadows’ launches at 20 Ponsonby Terrace at 5pm this Saturday, 20th June. Paperbacks are available for $25, cash only. Dress up as magical creatures is encouraged, but not required. Experienced children’s author Maria Gill will be introducing Sam at the launch.
