into the abyss


Into the Abyss cover (1)

The sequel to Falls the Shadow, told from the point of view of Catelyn’s sister, Violet, is now available in print, ebook, and audio formats!

The real Violet Benson is dead.

Scientists at the CCA have awakened the newest version of her, once again breathing life into her cloned body. The only thing missing? Every memory of all the Violet Bensons that came before. And that blank-slate mind, coupled with her super-human abilities, traps her as a valuable tool—one the president of the CCA intends to use in her fight against the other, brainwashed clones that plague the city of Haven.

So long as Violet follows CCA orders, that artificial heart of hers can keep beating.

But Violet has woken up in a city on the brink of war. A city full of houses burning. Children going missing. Families falling apart. And all of it linked to cloning. So when that turmoil in the city above suddenly makes its way into the CCA headquarters below, Violet finds herself caught in the middle, guilty by association and because of a violent past she can’t even remember.

Now, she’ll have to overcome that past and find a way to make the fighting stop—or else give up any hope of a future.


Select Praise for FALLS THE SHADOW:

“A different twist on a post-apocalyptic tale, Falls the Shadow is a very engaging read and hard to put down generic latisse until the last page.” —VOYA, starred review

“Gaither’s debut dystopia is thoughtful and thrilling, and several genuinely chilling moments stand out in an otherwise conventional story about an evil corporation’s Machiavellian plans. The cloning technology is appropriately eerie, and … [Cate’s] complicated love for Violet is emotionally resonant. ” —Booklist

“FALLS THE SHADOW takes weird science and makes it a whole lot weirder. Debut author Stefanie Gaither explores what happens when bleeding-edge science collides with the human experience. Highly recommended.” –Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author of ROT & RUIN and V-WARS

“FALLS THE SHADOW is a thrill ride of a book, giving readers a frightening tour of cloning possibilities—and a reminder of the hopeful connections that keep us human. What an intriguing debut for Stefanie Gaither!” —NYT Bestselling Author Margaret Peterson Haddix

“FALLS THE SHADOW offers readers high octane thrills with surprising heart; beneath this story of cloning in a corporate future is the tale of two sisters and the complicated history that binds them. This is a refreshingly real and deeply human book.” — Phoebe North, Author of STARGLASS

“A smart, futuristic thriller that grabs you and doesn’t let go until the very last page. This is a fantastic debut from Stefanie Gaither.” — Kristi Helvig, author of BURN OUT

“Eerie from page one, Falls the Shadow offers a rare thing: a real mystery set at the heart of a thriller. Gaither’s debut bristles with action, but it’s also built on the complicated ground of how we love the sisters and brothers who are thrown into our lives—the people who are closest to us in the world, but in some ways will always be unknowable.” —Amy Rose Capetta, author of ENTANGLED
