Inheritance of Shadows :: NOW IN AUDIO!

Lost in Time Universe

by A. L. Lester

It’s 1919. Matty returns home to the family farm from the trenches only to find his brother Arthur dying of an unknown illness. The local doctor thinks cancer, but Matty becomes convinced it's connected to the mysterious books his brother left strewn around the house.

Rob knows something other than just Arthur’s death is bothering Matty. He’s know him for years and been in love with him just as long. And when he finds something that looks like a gate, a glowing, terrifying doorway to the unknown, it all starts to fall in to place.

Matty’s looking sicker and sicker in the same way Arthur did. What is Rob prepared to sacrifice to save him?

The answer is in the esoteric books…and with the mysterious Lin of the Frem, who lives beyond the gate to nowhere. It’s taken Matty and Rob more than a decade to admit they have feelings for each other and they are determined that neither social expectations or magical illness will part them now.

A stand-alone 35k novella set in the Lost in Time Universe, beginning with the 7.5k short story The Gate.

About the Author

I write queer, paranormal, historical, romantic suspense and live in the South West of England with Mr AL, two children, Morris the badly behaved dachshund, a terrifying cat, some hens and the duckettes.

I like permaculture gardening but don’t really have time or energy these days. I’m not musical, I don’t much like telly and I like to read. Non-binary. Chronically disabled. I have fibromyalgia and tedious fits.
