About the Book

“A Reason to Live” is a free ebook short story.

Vampire Illyana Dakanova fears her “daughter” Adriana Dupre’s quest for vengeance against those who manipulated her into dealing with the Shadowdance will only lead to her death. When she refuses to help Adriana in her fool’s crusade, Adriana leaves her.

Illyana falls into a deep depression.

A century later, Illyana picks a fight with the Japanese underworld, hoping their supernatural assassin Keiko will finally end her.

As all seems lost for Illyana, sorcerer Makeda Arsi appears to her and offers a way to win back Adriana. However, this will entail manipulating Adriana into dealing with the Shadowdance — the very reason Adriana left in the first place.

“A Reason to Live” takes place a few months before the events of “By Virtue Fall,” the first song in the “Shadowdance” action/ urban fantasy saga. It’s a free ebook available in Kindle and Nook formats.

If you’ve read “By Virtue Fall,” “A Reason to Live” provides insight into the motivations of the characters within.

If you’re new to the “Shadowdance” saga, “A Reason to Live” is a good way to enter this urban fantasy world.

About the Author
Mark Wooden

The son of a sharecropper (not really), Mark Wooden has actively pursued the dream of being a Creative since his first epic kindergarten work, "Ne-Ne the Vampire Panda." Though he prefers movies and comic books, Mark chose the novel as his creative outlet. They don't cost anything to write, don't have a budget and he is the only person who can slow his progress.

Mark uses his decade of experiences on the road as a video engineer to place human emotion into "Shadowdance," his urban fantasy conspiracy. He makes monsters human and, sometimes, makes humans monsters by examining stereotypes and re-imagining them into new icons for the modern reader.

Through "Shadowdance," Mark allows readers to confront vampires, demons, werewolves and sorcerers from the comfort of an eBook. "By Virtue Fall" is his first novel in the "Shadowdance" action/ urban fantasy saga.
