Shadowland is a Young Adult story of historical fantasy set in Dark Ages of Britain; however, it is gathering fans of all ages. We grow up with the Legend of King Arthur... but where did he come from? Who was Merlin? What part did the Druids play in bringing Arthur to his round table? This is the story that came before, when Britain was just a Shadowland. `I have lived more years than I can remember, probably more than the sum of all your years combined. Kings have called me friend and brigands have sworn to burn the flesh from my bones, even if they have to search all seven halls of the shadowland to find me.' On the night of Midwinter's Eve, a storyteller takes his listeners back to the Dark Ages and a tale from his youth. Deserted by its Roman masters, Britain has been invaded by the Saxons at the invitation of Vortigern, traitorous leader of the Britons. Now, as the tribes unite to reclaim their land, one man must rise to lead them and become their only true king.
Shadowland is a revelatory and dramatic true-life thriller spanning much of the twentieth century, a page-turning chronicle of an elaborate Mafia plan to 'invade' Europe using 1960s London as a bridgehead. The capital city of the Swinging Sixties was also a world of gambling, guns and gangsters. Several veterans of the era are astonished that they survived it and some feel protected enough - now that most of the killers are themselves dead - to reveal to bestselling author Douglas Thompson the details and secrets of one of history's greatest criminal conspiracies, and of how world-champion boxer Freddie Mills really died. The tension in this real-life narrative is ferocious as the tale moves from London to New York and Las Vegas, down to Miami, into Havana, then on to the Bahamas and back to an unexpected denouement in London. Brutal, terrifying and intrigue-packed, it is an account of the Mob's Machiavellian global manipulation of governments and officials. Shadowland recounts events from the viewpoint of the pawns as well as the kingmakers. All the big players of Mafia history are here, controlled by the gangster genius Meyer Lansky, but so are the hit men, the fixers, the hoodlums and the wiseguys.

The origin of evil—what it is, why it exists and how we deal with it in our lives and world—is an issue that all of us contemplate from time to time. In "Shadowland: Evil, Compassion and the Power of Thought", author Imre Vallyon reveals the existential reality of evil as imperfection originating in the Cosmos at the beginning of time and continuing in our world and its present-day inhabitants. He also reminds us to be aware of the power of our thoughts for both good and evil, and to use that power only for good, only for that which brings in the Light, so that we may help the Light Principle – not the Shadowland – in us and in the world. Only by developing compassion and forgiveness and using our creative power of thought in positive ways can Humanity stop feeding the Shadowland of our planet. “Society is continually feeding Shadowland with negative thinking and therefore perpetuating it. If everybody stopped providing it with negative attention, it would explode into nothing because Shadowland is actually nothing. It is simply the mass of negative thoughts that we have about each other and about all kinds of things, and it would not exist without them.”
