The plot of Partners of Peril and much of the action is almost identical to ´´The Case of the Chemical Syndicate´´, the very first Batman story in Detective Comics #27, which appeared some years later.

In Faerie, magical power means everything. Keeping it means finding the key. After barely escaping with my life, returning to Faerie is the last thing I want to do. But my mission has grown only stronger now that I´ve sworn to save more held trapped in that realm. If only I know about their fate, then I´m sure as hell going to save them. Even if it means returning to hell. The upside is I now know where Julia is being kept. The downside is she´s being used as bait by the High Mage. Meanwhile, the Seelie are losing their stranglehold on magical power as the realm destabilizes around them. That only makes them more dangerous in their quest to regain immortality. There´s both fighting in the streets and search parties on the hunt. I soon learn those men are hunting for me. My only hope is taking refuge with more of the hunted, the rebel faction plotting to take back magical power. They need me and I need them. But there´s another who needs me, too: the intoxicating fae lord who hasn´t forgotten what passed between us. It may be that his power over me proves too hard to resist. But how can I know if he wants me for who I am or because of the magic that may lay hidden within me? Because if I´m the one foretold in the prophecies, I may hold the fate of three realms in my hands. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rachel Dulude.

The Shadow (Danish: ´´Skyggen´´) is a fairy tale by Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen. The tale was first published in 1847. Once a learned man from the northern regions of Europe went on a voyage south. One night, he sat on his terrace, while the fire behind him cast his shadow on the opposite balcony. As he was sitting there, resting, the man was amused to observe how the shadow followed his every movement, as if he really did sit upon the opposing balcony. When he finally grew tired and went to sleep, he imagined the shadow would likewise retire in the house across the street. The next morning however, the man found to his surprise that he in fact had lost his shadow overnight. As a new shadow slowly grew back from the tip of his toes, the man did not give the incident another thought, returned to northern Europe, and took up writing again. Several years passed by until one night there was a knock at his door. To his surprise, it was his shadow, the one he lost years before in Africa, and now stood upon his doorstep, almost completely human in appearance. Astonished by his sudden reappearance, the learned man invited him into his house, and soon the two sat by the fireplace, as the shadow related how he had come to be man... 1. Language: English.
