Ennae is a parallel world joined to our own world by the Sacred Pool, a portal that can only be opened by one with the Guardian blood running through their veins. It is through this watery gateway that Khatrene leaves her modern-day life behind forever, drawn into a quest that will take her into the depths of the unknown.

Khatrene must fulfil her destiny as The Light, the woman whose child will unite the four elemental worlds. At each turn are real and imagined enemies who will do everything in their power to prevent her from fulfilling the prophecy, including the ethereal and erotic shadow woman, the enigmatic tattooed man, even her beloved brother Mihale.

Talis, her appointed Guardian, must help her through the dangerous terrain of Ennae, sacrificing everything to ensure her safety in a land where magic prevails and nothing is as it seems.

From an exciting new voice in Australian fantasy fiction comes the first book in the Shadow Through Time trilogy. Beautifully crafted and written, Destiny of the Light combines intrigue, magic and horror to create a reality that is out of this world.


  • Great read

    I only get a chance to read while I'm in the bus going to work. When I was reading this I no longer wanted the 'express' bus. Great book, likable characters and good imagery.
  • Compelling, romantic, thought-provoking.

    I'm not generally a romance or fantasy fiction reader, but this book had me hooked. Time travelling brawny warriors, a heroine who doesn’t quite belong, parallel universes - it's almost like Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series taken one step further into fantasy. What surprised me was the way the book challenged me to think. I didn’t expect that of a romance novel, rather blindly in retrospect. A world devoid of animals? What does that even mean? I was reminded of first reading Pullman and encountering the Mulefa and their seed pod wheels, and how that made me think differently about evolution. Compelling, romantic, interesting and well-written.
