The Shimmering: Dark Descent by A.K Cook

Book One of The Shimmering series. A visionary fantasy about a young woman who stumbles upon the world of her creators, only to discover she holds the key that will open the doorway to return home… and set the forces of evil free.In the city of Saint Anthony, there is a realm of existence unknown to most mortals. Far below this urban landscape, in the cavernous bowels of the Underworld, Sinda journeys to discover fantastical lands, strange cultures — and herself. When she is snatched from her homeland and thrust into the civilized world of humans, she comes face-to-face with the hardest quest she has ever encountered - find her way home or follow her heart. Is the choice even hers?The clock is counting down for Sinda, but time is not her only adversary — Nefarious beings seek her for their own devious designs, the Elders want to exploit her in a power play over their rivals and the godlike Solari’i hold her fate in their hands. With each turn she takes, Sinda draws closer to her destiny — and the salvation of the entire Underworld.A unique and engaging world, with hints of global folklore, magick, psychology and dream theory. With compelling characters that lure you into their lives, a fresh and spontaneous approach to contemporary romance, and the exploration of the duality that exists within us all, this insightfully original Visionary Novella promises to satisfy fans of the Urban Fantasy genre — both seasoned and new.
