All It Takes Is One Night
to Plunge the World into Darkness
Life in Abney, Texas, is predictable and safe—until the night a massive solar flare wipes out all modern technology.
Shelby Sparks, novelist and single mom, had one goal: to provide for her diabetic son. In the wake of this global disaster, her mission hasn’t changed. Only now, medication is a priceless commodity and the future resembles an apocalyptic nightmare.
Max Berkman and Shelby were once sweethearts, but he lost his chance at claiming her love years ago. When the abrupt loss of power ushers him into a leadership role, he rises to the occasion. But his highest priority—to keep Shelby and her son safe—could prove to be the biggest challenge of all.
As the brilliant northern lights give way to deep shadows, Max and Shelby’s faith will be tested like never before. Only one rule remains: Find a way to survive.

"Vannetta Chapman begins a new series (The Remnant) with her newest book, Deep Shadows. With the flash of a solar flare, life for residents of a small Texas town is changed, perhaps forever. Such a believable and possible situation to write about and the author does a wonderful job of making this story credible.... With edge-of-your-seat suspense this is an intense, provocative book, causing readers to wonder about their own reaction and preparedness for a disaster of this magnitude."
"I write romance, but sometimes love reading books that are a little different. Deep Shadows definitely fits that description! As the subtitle promotes-The Remnant series, Book One-this book takes place after a catastrophic event that changes the world as we know it. A solar flare wipes out all modern technology and most of the power grid. This story is about how the people of Abney, Texas try to survive.... And it ends with a cliffhanger, so you know there will be a book 2 and hopefully more. I plan to read them, how about you? Write fast, Vannetta Chapman!"
—Rose Allen McCauley, author
"Deep Shadows, the powerful dystopian suspense first book of 'The Remnant Series' may keep you up at night. First, you'll be awake finishing the book, then in mental agitation over when the solar flare chaos will begin in reality. Award winning Vannetta Chapman excels in yet another writing genre."
—Alan Daugherty, weekly columnist in The News-Banner
"Deep Shadows by Vannetta Chapman is a book like no other that I've read. With suspense and intrigue, Ms. Chapman weaves together a tale that caused me to stop and rethink everyday life."
"I'm so thrilled Chapman switched genres to write this story and even though there is sadness (towards the end, there was one tragedy that gripped my heart), there is also humor, faith, friendship and one small town in Texas who will stand together to make survival possible! I'm a sensitive reader, but I highly recommend this book for those who enjoy dystopian stories. Chapman's writing style is very unique and you won't be disappointed!"
"I highly recommend this book to everyone. While I understand a deep topic such as a solar flare (which I learned are real - thank you Vannetta!) is not for everyone, I encourage you to try this with an open mind. Look at it as a book that shows how a community can try to come together during a crisis, or how a mother will do anything to save her son, or how a friendship is tested. You will not regret it!"
"Chapman's book is a suspenseful heart-pounding read. But through it all, the message of God's grace is woven into the text.
Vannetta Chapman's foray into a different genre-Christian dystopian fiction, is a very successful venture. Her in-depth research brings credibility as well as suspense to this novel. If you would like to read a book that keeps you hanging on the edge of your seat, this is a great read for you! I highly recommend Deep Shadows, it is a five star read!"
"This is a story of survival and faith. Vannetta Chapman brings the story and the characters to life in such detail that I felt I was right there with the people in the story.... A wonderful book that I plan to read again."
"If you enjoy a really good mystery that hinges on reality, you need to pick up Deep Shadows."
