[For those of you not in the know: Shay Doran is one of the main characters from NIGHTSHADE, a book coming out in October. The prequel to the book is being done online in an interactive way--basically, Shay's on Facebook, Youtube, and blogging about the events that lead up to the first chapter of NIGHTSHADE. It's been totally fun to participate; you should give it a try!]
Recently, Shay's been exploring his new home, and he found a creepy library filled with books that had secret messages. Instead of trying to figure it all out himself, he sent the books to his readers, so we can post the clues and try to help solve the mystery. [OMGosh, see how much fun this is?!]
Here's what I got on Monday:
First, there's this, found on page 106:
He accomplished his dream for the dark creation.
[DUDE. I know. Awesome, right?]
But wait: there's one more clue:
This one is definitely more complicated, but here's what the words add up to say:
She return to the world as 4 lost things.
I'm assuming this last one is a bit of a stretch--it should probably read "She returns to the world as four lost things."
But hey--how strange! First, we've gone from a "He" to a "She"--and the clue makes a point that it's a "she"--look at the picture, the "s" and "he" had to be made through the drawing. So we're talking about a girl for sure--and she has to return as four things? Hmmm....I'm thinking there's a chance shape-shifting is involved....
What do you all think? Personally, I think this is great fun, and can't wait to discover what happens next!!
COME JOIN THE MYSTERY AND THE CONVERSATION! Visit Shay on Facebook and see the other clues!
Hmm four things... Maybe the four elements? Fire water earth air?
Cool marketing idea! Thanks for sharing.
Wow. That's so cool!
Anne--great idea! Wow, I'd not thought of that...
How fun! I just started Nightshade and I love it so far!
