The Owners Volume V : Eyon Rising

Every lamp in the room was aglow but rather than the room be filled with light, so that all shadows were banished, the combined effect of light from so many different sources, seemed to make the shadows even more prolific and pronounced than they ought to have been.

Strange caricatures seemed to leap around the walls, stolen shadows of the people who stood so close but almost unmoving. It was almost as if the shadows had developed a life of their own, independent and separate from both the people who cast them and each other.

A trick of the combined lights, the dancing gloomy shapes made her feel quite unreal as though they sucked the life from her to use for their own devilish desires.
