The Sheynan Trilogy

Multiple File Formats

This dark urban fantasy adventure by Dylan Birtolo is an omnibus of three novels: The Shadow Chaser, The Bringer of War, and The Torn Soul, and features three new short stories.


Darien Yost is a young man about to learn that the world is not all he believes it to be. It all starts when he finds himself blacking out for no apparent reason. He is haunted by strangely realistic dreams and mysterious strangers who appear in his life. They know details about him that even he isn’t aware of and claim that he has a power which makes him unique among them.

The more he struggles to find the answers, the deeper he finds himself entangles in this world, a world of shape shifters.

Soon he is thrust into the middle of a war that had been going on for generations. He must master his abilities before either side claims him – either as an asset or a casualty.



Three months have passed since Darien Yost learned about the Arm of Gaia and the Shadows. These people have the ability to shape-change into an animal form at will and have been waging a secret war for centuries. They struggle to control Darien’s destiny, believing that his rare ability could tip the balance. But Darien has embraced his powers and is no longer the untrained, easily manipulated, novice he once was. Now he and his allies have gone on the offensive, hunting down those who are trying to enslave him. 

Meanwhile, Bridget, a renegade shifter with secrets of her own, tries to pull Darien away from his friends. She believes that together, they will be unstoppable. She knows that alone, their fates will lead to madness.


Time is running out for Darien.

It has been nearly a year since the battle in Texas, where Darien learned of the curse that accompanies his powers as Sheynan. He is afraid to leave the safe haven of Susan’s family cabin in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, despite Richard’s growing impatience.

When the Arm of Gaia and the Shadows catch up to them, Darien is unprepared for the consequences, and only the intervention of a secretive government agency saves their lives. Who and what is this agency? How do they know so much about Shifters? Is their offer of help really what it appears to be? Or, is it something more nefarious?

As new players and new dangers enter the scene, Darien must confront his past, and convince the Arm and the Shadows to work together against a new enemy—before his mind is lost to the Sheynan’s curse.

Product Information
File Size:
4.19 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
