Imagine you were able to change the past. By altering one tiny thing you could start a chain of catastrophic events Ethan is Named - he has the ability to travel back in time, where he must use his special skills to try and intercept the dark forces intent on unravelling history. But Ethan is also a normal school boy, and leading a single life with a double identity is becoming just too much to handle, especially when even the normal part is getting more and more complicated.

And then Isabel comes along. (Publisher's blurb)

A dark and compelling sequel to The Named, The Dark crackles with suspense and intrigue. Hell-bent on avenging the death of one of their best, the Order of Chaos gain the upper hand in their battle against the Guardians. As the Order's attempts to change history bear fruit, Ethan and Isabel notice subtle changes in their daily lives as an altered past impacts on the future. Before they can confront the Order, Ethan and Isabel, joined by Isabel's brother Matt, must risk everything to travel through a dark world and save Arkarian, without whom the future looks very bleak.'

In this final volume in the trilogy, the Order of Chaos begins its final and devastating assault on The Named in a desperate bid to annihilate them and gain absolute control of all the realms. The Named are in trouble. Not only must they find the precious lost key to unlock their ancient treasury of weapons, but there is a traitor in their midst.

'The battle is over. The war is won. The prophecy complete.

'But life can’t just pick up where it left off for Ethan. Struggling to cope with the death of his soul-mate, at odds with his friends in the Guard, he finds himself adrift, jumping at shadows and sensing someone who can’t possibly be there.

'Blaming herself for Lathenia’s death, Jesilla swears to avenge her mother and fulfil her vision for world domination. But she hadn’t planned to fall in love. And that leaves her with an unbearable choice – should she follow her heart or the parental strings of a Goddess, short on praise but high on expectation, who continues to pull on her from the grave?

'As the Guard and the Order battle through the past and into an impossible future, darkness lurks around every corner. The fight for the world’s survival will rest with just one.

'Is it friend or foe that stands in The Shadow?'
