Book Review: Shadowforged

Title Shadowforged

Series Light & Shadow, book 2

Author Moira Katson

Release Date April 9, 2013

With Catwin’s help, Miriel has captured the heart of the King, but their victory has come at a cost: the suspicion and enmity of the Duke, and the unrelenting hatred of the Court. As they recover from the attempt on their lives, the two form a fragile alliance, promising that their first loyalty is to each other, and that their one goal is to survive.

But to survive, Catwin and Miriel need power, and the search for power of their own draws them ever further into the Court and inexorably closer to the throne. Enemies surround them, ruthless and vengeful, and the only way forward is a dark path that threatens to sever them from themselves.

For it is not only enemies that are a danger Light and Shadow now, but the weakness of their own hearts. As she protects them both, Catwin struggles against her love for Temar, the Duke’s assassin; to capture the King’s heart, Miriel must forget both her love for Wilhelm, and her passionate belief in the populist uprising. A reckoning is coming, a betrayal that has been in the making for decades, and if they are to survive, both Catwin and Miriel must be prepared to give up everything they hold dear.

What a great second book!

I've completely fallen in love with the characters in this trilogy. Catwin and Miriel are absolutely wonderful female characters. While they are certainly my favorite, I also rather enjoyed Garad, Wilhelm, and Temar. All of the characters have such a realness and depth that I can't get enough of.

The writing is on par with the previous book (which is great in case you didn't know). As the story progresses, it's evident that Moira is a skilled author.

I cannot wait to read the third and final book in the trilogy.


5 out of 5 stars
