After running from his past for twenty-five years, Michael J. Bear, ex-deep cover operative for an ultra-secret shadow agency of the world Shadow Government, faces one of his greatest challenges: confronting a psychotic killer being controlled by the lord of darkness himself. Between Shadows: The final Darkle story, is a cyclonic examination of twisted and repressed love, leading to ultimate redemption. Completing the modern day mythos begun in The Noble Stories and Darkle's Midnight Tales, Between Shadows reunites Michael with his soul mate. However, Lucifer, jealous that one of his Fallen Angels is about to reunite its divided spirit, once again intervenes to separate the lovers before they become aware of their True Self. But the incarnations of Fate and Death conspire to help the one time Arch Angel return to paradise, a whole being, finally understanding the purpose of all existence.
