The city can be a mysterious place full of unknowns and strange things. Ghosts inhabit traffic islands, ogres harass young women, and a mysterious killer is on the loose. But it is also a place where love, perseverance, and courage can shape even the darkest destiny.

The Shadows At Their Feet is a novel of interconnecting fairy tales and mysteries by J.A. Bender, recalling the magical realism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez by way of Haruki Murakami and Paul Auster.
