...a real page-turner, with a disarmingly breazy and entertaining narrative that sweeps you away into a believably complex world of chivalry and secrets, of ancient magic, strange beasts and the toughest of decisions.

Praise & Reviews
I read it in just a few days — so hard to put down. Incredible writing. Full of intrigue, adventure, humour, great memorable characters, and — most importantly — eminently readable.
Bram Simmonds, Amazon review
From the very first page...this novel kept me so engaged that I could hardly put it down. This novel has so many wonderful elements, from the depth brought to the characters and magical beings, to the horses. Andersen clearly knows a lot about horses and uses this knowledge to great effect, bringing them in as characters on their own.
Ann Stanley, Kobo review
Adele Andersen was born in Adelaide, South Australia. Concerned that she was never going to leave home, her parents left her on a horse yard in the UK with an open return ticket after an overseas wedding. This was ostensibly a “character building” exercise, and one which definitely worked…but turned out rather more permanent than her poor parents expected.
Adele has a fitness bootcamp in West London and teaches fitness online. After many years in London flats she has escaped to Berkshire to an actual house with a garden, garage and no parking restrictions (bliss).
She would be a crazy cat lady except that she’s married to singer Rasmus Bom Andersen, who is even louder than she is (and that’s really saying something).
The Darkness Dreaming is her first novel and took twenty seven years to complete. She’s hoping the next books will be finished significantly faster.
