College of Shadows

Book One

Cambridge attracts the brightest minds, the darkest forces,

and the deadliest monsters.

In their very first week at university, Nick and Annabel are attacked by a creature out of their worst nightmares and barely escape with their lives. As the bodies pile up, they enlist the help of a dare-devil student who climbs the College’s ivory towers for fun. But if they can’t defeat the monster, they'll become its next meal...


College of Shadows is the page-turning first novel in the bestselling Cambridge Gothic series. If you like ancient buildings, old-fashioned adventure, and a gripping plot, then you’ll love this book.

'A massively enjoyable opening of what promises to be a favourite series.'

'A nail-biting experience in a mesmerizing setting.'

'The author masterfully leaves readers sitting on the edge of their seats in suspense and wanting more.'

'Who'd have thought rips in space, wormholes, and vicious aliens could happen in such an idyllic place?

Couldn't put it down, and what a surprise ending!'

'People have said it's very much in the same vein as Harry Potter...

I don't think so myself - I believe it's far and away the better of the two.'

'A great read for someone who loves fantasy but isn’t completely involved in the science fiction worlds!

The epilogue alone will have you gasping for more!!'
