REVIEW OF THE SHADOW WAND BY LAURIE FOREST

THE SHADOW WAND BY LAURIE FOREST: REVIEW



SYNOPSIS

HER WORLD-ALTERING SECRET CAN’T BE HIDDEN MUCH LONGER

Elloren Gardner hides the most powerful secret in all Erthia—she is the Black Witch of Prophecy, and destined to triumph…or be used as the ultimate weapon of destruction.

Separated from everyone she loves, isolated and hunted, Elloren must turn to the last person she can trust—her fastmate, Commander Lukas Grey. With the Mage forces of Gardneria poised to conquer all of Erthia, Elloren has no choice but to ally with Lukas and combine their power to keep herself out of the hands of Gardnerian leader Marcus Vogel…the holder of the all-consuming Shadow Wand.

With just weeks to train to become a warrior, and no control over her magic, Elloren finds unexpected allies among those under orders to kill her. It’s time to step up. To fight back. And to forge onward through the most devastating loss yet.

REVIEW


Life never goes the way we want or imagine, and Elloren sure learns that. Hunted by the Vu Trin because she's too powerful and forced to go back to Gardneria to gather information and hide, she reunites with Lukas and learns of the death of someone precious to her. A lot happens in a short time and Elloren loses loved ones, and gains allies, sacrifices parts of herself, and also acquires new skills.

There are multiple POVs that widen the scope of the story. I enjoyed them a great deal. I'm usually not a fan. I'm usually mentally screaming "gimme my MC!!!" but Laurie knows how to trap you with new characters and also new ones that have interesting stories to tell. From a highly powerful mage who has his beliefs torn to pieces in front of him, to a brave, reckless young woman who would do anything for her small sibling, to a powerful fae, and Elloren's brother Trystan. I so love Trystan; his side of the story is heartbreaking and also full of self-discovery with a dash of steamy romantic potential.

If there's something Laurie excels at, is conveying emotion in such a raw way that I teared up several times. And romance. Complex, maddening, delirious romantic liaisons that are positively addictive.

The war has begun, and it's terrifying. Just when I thought I couldn't hate Marcus Vogel more than I did he got worse. Like 100 times worse. And Vyvian, that crazy bitch reached extra levels of wickedness.

Again, the parallels to some of the most chauvinistic ways of the Gardnerians with our world's bullshit ways are masterful. The way Gardnerians feel like they own the world, and want to set it on fire, and dominate other species because it says they are the superior beings in their little deranged book was eerily familiar.

There are also lots of action scenes. I looooooooooove me some actions scenes. And have I mentioned the kissing? There are lots of swoon-worthy scenes, too. I love how Laurie balances the horrors of a world divided and at war with very personal stories full of complex feelings and hard decisions.

Overall a sexy, action-packed, diverse adventure that makes one think about the injustices in our pseudo-modern prejudiced world while diving into a world ripe with magic, dragons, and powerful beings.

The Veer Union - Living Not Alive (Official Video)

Amazing song obsession! I've had it on replay for hours, and it's helped me write several difficult scenes.



LIVING NOT ALIVE by The Veer Union

Now I know why, you couldn't breathe

Locked in a life that you can't leave

Now I know why you couldn't heal

Stuck in a world that you can't feel



In silence you are fading

Crumbling and breaking

Said that you're mistaken

But you're numb to what you need

Can someone rip you open?

And break what has been broken?

Before there's nothing left to bleed



You drift into the darkest skies

I can see the life leave your eyes

It's buried beneath your crooked grin

It's fighting to fuel the fire again

How to lose your hypnotize

Drowning in the taste of your lies

The star that would shine, now it dies within

You're lost in the life that you're living in



And I can see you're living

But you're not alive



The scars you're creating

Smiling and Faking

When will you awaken,

You succumb to the disease

Like a whisper in the weather

Nothing lasts forever



Now I know why, you couldn't breathe

You're locked in a life that you can't leave

Now I know why you couldn't heal

You're stuck in a world that you can't feel



You drift into the darkest skies

I can see the life leave your eyes

It's buried beneath your crooked grin

It's fighting to fuel the fire again

How to lose your hypnotize

Drowning in the taste of your lies

The star that would shine, now it dies within

You're lost in the life that you're living in



And I can see you're living

But you're not alive

But you're not alive



(You're not living!)



You drift into the darkest skies

I can see the life leave your eyes

It's buried beneath your crooked grin

It's fighting to fuel the fire again

How to lose your hypnotize

Drowning in the taste of your lies

The star that would shine, now it dies within

You're lost in the life that you're living in



And I can see you're living (Living!)

But you're not alive (Living!)

But you're not alive

THE PROPHECIES of THE SHADOW WAND by Laurie Forest (Spanish Version)

Happy release day to THE SHADOW WAND by Laurie Forest! Here's my rendition of the chilling Gardnerian, Noi, and Amaz prophecies in Spanish. Laurie loves how they sound in Spanish, and I have to admit they do feel pretty ominous in my birth language. What are you waiting for to read this rollercoaster of feels, non-sop action, and smoldering romance?
