In the Shadow of His Nemesis by Al Bruno III

"In the end love makes monsters of us all." 

Isobel Talbot’s life was a monotony, even her heartbreaks were predictable; but a chance encounter leaves her running for her life from the most terrible and impossible things.

And worse yet, she’s fallen in love.

Note: In the Shadow of His Nemesis contains pervasive graphic sexual content, graphic violence, and harsh language.

No title

By Alexander.Hollins, member

Dec 28, 2010: The story moves quickly, sometimes a bit too quickly. The author has a penchant for run on sentences, but then, so do I, so that’s more a description of the prose than a complaint. The first few chapters point to a supernatural storyline set in the ordinary world, and who wears the black hat and who wears the white is anything but clear.
