Game of Shadows

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A young man plagued by the ability to see ghosts races to save the mythological land of Tara from a terrible fate in Erika Lewis's stunning debut, Game of Shadows.

Thousands of years ago in Ireland, an ancient race fought a world-changing battle—and lost. Their land overrun, the Celtic gods and goddesses fled, while the mythical races and magical druids sailed to an uncharted continent, cloaked so mankind could never find it. This new homeland was named Tara.

In modern day Los Angeles, Ethan Makkai struggles with an overprotective mother who never lets him out of her sight, and a terrifying secret: he can see ghosts. Desperate for a taste of freedom, he leaves his apartment by himself for the first time—only to find his life changed forever. After being attacked by dive-bombing birds, he races home to find the place trashed and his mother gone.

With the help of a captain from Tara who has been secretly watching the Makkais for a long time, Ethan sets out to save his mother; a journey that leads him to the hidden lands, and straight into the arms of a vicious sorcerer who will stop at nothing until he controls Tara.With new-found allies including Christian, the cousin he never knew he had, and Lily, the sword-slinging healer who’d rather fight than mend bones, Ethan travels an arduous road—dodging imprisonment, battling beasts he thought only existed in nightmares, and accepting help from the beings he’s always sought to avoid: ghosts. This L.A. teen must garner strength from his gift and embrace his destiny if he’s going to save his mother, the fearless girl he’s fallen for, and all the people of Tara.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 31, 2016 – Lewis's contemporary fantasy debut has plenty of grounding in myth but a number of flaws in the story. Teenager Ethan Makkai's mom won't let him walk to school by himself, and she never gives him a reason why. In fact, she never lets him do anything by himself. On his 14th birthday he decides he isn't going to take the babying any more. Ethan thinks that his mom's trying to protect him from people who would be distressed that he can see ghosts he isn't about to tell anyone anyway, because kids will think he's a freak but he resents not being allowed to go for a stroll alone in his hometown of Venice, Calif. What Ethan doesn't know is that he and his mother are fugitives from a hidden world called Tara where magic is possible and unbelievable creatures live. While he's taking a solo walk, his mother is kidnapped, and he has to rescue her from Tara. Though Lewis has clearly studied Celtic legends thoroughly, the narrative she builds atop them is simplistic and lacking in depth; there's plenty of exciting action throughout, but the main characters get mysterious help each time they're threatened.
