For Susan Sizemore—
You let me borrow
your amazing brain for plotting,
You bless me with your wit and humor,
Most of all, you’ve given me years
(and years and years) of true friendship.
That’s the best gift of all.
Writing a book like
Into the Shadow
is, as always, a joy and a challenge. Thank you to my editor, Kara Cesare, for her questions, comments, and enthusiasm. Thanks to Lindsay Nouis for all she does for me. Thank you to Kara Welsh and Claire Zion for their support for the
Darkness Chosen
series. Finally, a profound thank-you to Anthony Ramondo and his team in the art department for this fabulous cover.
