Eric Albright was a luckless journalist living in London. He had a so-so life...until the day he opened a battered red door that appeared on the graffiti-covered wall of a local bridge, and entered Levaal, a magical world between worlds. A place populated by power damaged mages, stone giants, pit devils―and dragons, Levaal's possible creators, who are imprisoned in a sky prison. It is also where the mad Lord Vous rules with an iron fist and is busy working on a scheme to turn himself into a god. Vous has been defeated so far because Levaal has been contained by the great Wall at World's End.
But the Wall at World's End has been brought down, war is coming to the land, and Eric and his newfound friends are caught in the thick of it. They are forced to flee from the Tormentors, dreadful creatures that have poured through the breach, and there are rumors that one of the great dragons has escaped its sky prison.
Worse yet, Vous's journey to godhood is almost complete, and a mysterious being called Shadow (who is not but looks remarkably like Eric) is wandering Levaal with great power but no purpose it yet understands.
The end might be coming faster than anyone thinks.Shadow is the second title in Will Elliott's fantasy Pendulum Trilogy.

Praise for the Pendulum Trilogy

“A gripping series of events moves briskly...leaving us all wanting to know what happens to the world as much as to our protagonists.”―RT Book Reviews
“The author's not only a superb craftsman and character-builder, but a consummate storyteller, so that each good-against-evil clash appears fresh and engrossing.”―Kirkus Reviews
