Reviewed by Kim Anisi for Readers' Favorite The story of the second book in the Witch-Hunter series, The Shadow Reigns by K.S. Marsden, takes place in a world that has literally been robbed of light by witches: they have made electricity stop, and communication via phone or internet is not possible any longer. This makes communicating between the witch-hunters a bit more difficult but they receive help from a source they never considered would help them: Wiccans. In the beginning, Hunter is still recovering from the events of book 1. The Malleus Maleficarum Council is trying to regroup with his help (after all, his ability to “beam” from one plan to the other comes in handy). Eventually, they make the decision that they have to draw the witches out and fight on their own terms. But will this work out the way they planned? I enjoyed The Shadow Reigns by K.S. Marsden, but thought it was too short! But I guess that’s what you often think about enjoyable stories. I liked the problems that Hunter had to deal with: on one hand, he had to deal with the question whether a witch-hunter that can do magic like a witch is to be trusted. He had to prove this to himself and to others. Then there’s the love angle to the Shadow Witch. In addition, Sophie tries to get closer to him, which complicates things a little more. While it’s not a major plot point, I enjoyed the weird relationship between Hunter and his mother, and how she reacted to other people. She’s quite a character! K.S. Marsden created a fun read with lots of action, but also some quieter and funny moments in between.

I quite enjoy Marsden’s writing style.  She draws you into the story with her inviting yet dense and thought-provoking writing.  A sense of darkness winds its way through Marsden’s descriptions painting this world in shades of red and grey.  Everything is very easy to picture, and the storyline definitely sparks your imagination.  The story definitely ends a bit harshly at the ending without being a definite cliff-hanger, leaving you reaching for the next novel in the series.   I quite enjoyed getting to know the characters in this novel a bit better.   Marsden continues to develop these individuals, allowing them to grow based on their circumstances and trials.  You also get to know the characters not just as individuals, but as a group and as friends.  Their interactions with one another are just as revealing about who they are as their individual histories are Overall, I quite enjoyed this story.   It didn’t capture my attention quite the way the first one does but I have high hopes for the third novel in the series.   Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
