Statement

Shadows in the City is a story about Landon, a youth who is hiding a highly desirable secret from the rest of the city he lives in: the power to morph into and move through shadows. One day, Landon meets someone named Oliver, who offers answers to where Landon's mother disappeared to years ago in exchange for his power to help combat the corruption in their city. Now, Landon must fight the darkness that lurks in the place he calls home, as well as the darkness found deep within his emotions, all while trying to live life as normal as possible.
