Reign of Shadows by Angel Haze
Jammed with gory battles, flashy spell-casting, and monstrous creatures, this book offers entertainment no matter what page you’re on. First, Killien and his stepfather Vaughn are sent out on a dangerous mission into the Dark Forest, not knowing if or when they will return. But then, a terrible prophecy about Vaughn’s unborn daughter comes to light, and their worlds change forever.
I absolutely love the characters in this book, how they are all so different from each other, and each serves a role in the team as much as in the family unit. The relationship between Killien and his stepfather is fantastic, and you can practically FEEL the love between them. And you can’t help but root for Killien after everything he’s been through!! He’s a stellar character.
But then, we also have side characters, like Garrock, who offers some much-needed comic relief in all the mess that is the Dark Forest and beyond. This is a high-stakes yet well-balanced story, and it refuses to let up. So for anyone looking for some brilliant Epic Fantasy, look no further! Give Reign of Shadows a go!
