"Three fears tormented my mind as a child: Nyctophobia—the fear of darkness.  Teraphobia—the fear of monsters.  And Sanguivoriphobia—the fear of vampires.  Usually, as one grows older, such ridiculous terrors gradually subside.  Yet mine only persisted. The grave events began during my boyhood. They transpired on the night of which I discovered my remarkable gift.  But on that night, my three fears also ravenously and quite literally came forth into this world.  As a result, I had to make a choice—and I confess, the choice I made has cost me nearly everything. For fourteen years there was a calm in my life. Alas, it was one o’ clock a.m.—the dead of night—when the late-summer wind silently declared their return to this world.  Indeed, they are coming for me—and my time wanes with the dying light of my candlestick’s wavering flame."

Shadows On The Wall is an old-style Gothic horror tale, resurrecting a forgotten era of story-telling that died at the end of the 19th century.  The story blends both the desire for friendship, as well as formidable fears that are common among children.  Follow the narrator as his tragic childhood events lead him as an adult chasing a traveling carnival that unknowingly harbors his fears, love, and fate.

I don’t know who to believe, but I know that this place is full of lies and secrets. 

Easton Bay has risked everything to protect me, but that doesn’t mean that he didn’t do what they had accused him of. 

I am in love with him. I am supposed to be his wife, but this changes everything. The King has turned on him. I’m Easton’s only hope.

But it’s only a matter of time before they turn on me, too. 

Is my fate is sealed?
