In the shadow of Mortwood Forest dwells the most prolific murderer of the Kingdom. The curse he carries, however, may also make him their saviour.

In a world where magic is lost and innocence is stolen, a prophecy begins.

The darkest intentions hidden within every man’s soul are exposed, as Shadows and Light, and only one has the power to Judge them.

But he is not what you expect…



Judgement is a short-story from the fantasy universe Shadows and Light. This type of story is called a ‘one-shot’. It is kind of like throwing yourself into a universe to experience life as one of the characters as they take on a challenge or tell their own story. The next one-shot in the series may be from a different character at the same time as the first, or the same character at a different time, or perhaps even of an event that is taking place around them, but all the stories will belong to the same world. All of these one-shots eventually weave together like threads of fabric, to build an incredibly rich novel from multiple points of view.

This first book, “Judgement”, kicks off the Shadows and Light series. There will be others that build upon this epic fantasy world released in the future. In Judgement, we meet one of the central characters of the Shadows and Light universe, and see the world from his own eyes. What he sees each day, however, is definitely not what others see.
Grab a warm drink, get cosy and begin reading – there is someone in the shadows, waiting to meet you…

Praise for Judgement


“A powerful and sympathetic voice with an ending that’s pretty damn awesome.”

(B. L.) Smashwords
“I found darkness and light; a history of cruelty; a feeling of crushing despair, and a twinkle of hope… How Ms. Camille weaves a world, creates an atmosphere of darkness and despair, and then understanding dawns without effort, I do not know. Yet, she does it well, with precision, gives the reader all they need to know… and leaves them wanting more.”

“This spell-binding novella by Hayley Camille will thrill and cause you to think of what mankind is doing to the Natural world – and each other and how wisdom sometimes comes ‘out of the mouths of babes…’. I would recommend it to fans of fantasy, mystery and morality-tales…you’ll love it!”
