Den of Shadows

Welcome to Nyeusigrube, the Den of Shadows, a world that is similar to ours, but rich with magic (for good or ill).  Complex civilizations of vampires, shapeshifters and witches live alongside humans- sometimes hiding, sometimes peacefully intermingling, and occasionally striving to dominate all those they consider their prey.

The Den of Shadows series includes nine contemporary young adult novels, two related series and three short stories published between 1999 and 2016.  Though the series has concluded, Amelia has discussed returning to the characters and the world in the aftermath of the final contemporary novel, Promises to Keep, at some point in the future.

Though the contemporary Den of Shadows books are a series, and take place in the same world in and in approximately the order of their publication, they are mostly designed to stand alone (the exception is All Just Glass, which is a direct sequel to Shattered Mirror).  They can be read out of order, but they do build on each other, and long-term readers will find cross-references and times where events from one story have triggered the events in the next.

The complete series, in order of publication, includes:




Return to Den of Shadows
"Empire of Dirt"*

Maeve'ra Trilogy
"The Assassin"* (tentative)




* "Empire of Dirt" is a short story featured in the anthology 666: The Number Of The Beast.  "Rebel," "Prophet" and "Assassin" are e-short companion stories to the Maeve'ra Trilogy.

      3. I just reread both Demon in My View and Shattered Mirror (I'm starting In the Forests of the Night next!) since I first stumbled across them as a freshman in high school ten years ago. (I remember actually doing a writing assignment on Shattered Mirror in English class back then). I was just reminded in my re-read, how much I love the character Aubrey, and lament that Jessica's novel Tiger, Tiger does not exist in our world. Will we ever see Aubrey again? It may be too much to ask, but I really hope so! (Also, as a young author myself way back when, knowing that you were so young when you first were published really made you one of my role models)
        Thank you for such wonderful stories <3
