Fantasy romance author launches second book in trilogy

Shameez Patel Papathanasiou packed Cavendish Exclusive Books on Wednesday April 26 with the launch of The Eternal Shadow, the latest in her Selene trilogy, following from the first book, The Last Feather.

The Goodwood-based author is a civil engineer by day, but at night, she writes fantasy worlds with magic, monsters and someone to fall in love with.

She says the last book is ready to be published and is a story of pain where not everyone will survive a war.
