The Shadow of the Swarm – Brilliant!

The Shadow of the Swarm begins just where The Morrow Secrets ends and Tallitha learns what her fate will be. There are more character introductions in this book, some nice some not so nice but all play an important part in the story. We discover many more Morrow Secrets and throughout this book things start slotting into place. I think Tallitha is a very brave girl and she is an amazing character.

Susan McNally has penned a fantastic read, I enjoyed it even more than the first book in the series.

There are still loose ends to tie up and I really want to know what happens next. I am looking forward to returning to this series when book three is released.

Again, Susan McNally’s, outstanding series exceeds expectations, 13 Nov 2014

Again, Susan McNally’s, outstanding series exceeds expectations, and I regard her as the next JK Rowling.

This is the second book in The Morrow Secrets trilogy, and it’s even better than the first.

I found the book very easy to read, it has a lot of mystery, and it will keep you hooked all the way through. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

As I’ve said before, Susan McNally is clear competition to JK Rowling, and I hope one day her books will bring big success.


5 Stars! Another cracking story from Susan (Amazon) …I loved the first book and couldn’t wait for this one, I was not disappointed. It is just as intriguing, sinister and riveting as it’s predecessor. The characters are excellent. I like the way Tallitha is plucky but can also feel nervous…it’s much more real than a hero who is all gung-ho and brave. The shroves repulse me….can’t imagine why anyone would have them in the same house…I can smell them from the description….yuck! It is well written and holds ones interest all the time. As with the prequel Susan leaves us with a cliff hanger of an ending…now we have a year to wait for the final book….that is my only criticism!….

5* ‘I loved this book from start to finish! Packed with adventure, mystery and magic this is the stuff of dark mythical kingdoms and well imagined fantasy worlds where witches, ghosts and strange creatures abound. It is a great read for all ages especially for those who love dark fairy tales. Tallitha is a great heroine with a strong determination to survive and unravel the secrets that inhabit her weird family. The plot is gripping and leads the reader on a journey full of scary twists and spooky turns into the occult and supernatural. Now I want book 3!

A must for fantasy and YA lovers.’

5 Stars! A brilliant sequel! (Amazon) …This is the second of Susan McNally’s Morrow Secrets books – the first one came out last year – and it’s just as good as the first one. It’s centred around the same main character and she’s joined not only by lots of the other characters from the first book but by new ones too. They’re all brought brilliantly to life and have more fantastic adventures. I don’t want to give anything anyway but there are some new locations which are unlike anything I’ve encountered before – spooky gothic indeed. Read it!.. Caedryl, Lapis & Muprid 

The Shadow of the Swarm

..”Its time for Tallitha’s new task. Escape and hope to see her world again. As usual its easier said than done, though it probably wouldn’t be such a good story if things were easily done.

Tallitha is wondering if she will see Winderling Spires, I guess everyone wants to be back home, evil or not. But she and new friends will have to work together to find a way back. Tallitha works hard to find out these secrets her family has. And some of them are surprising, but her strength shows through out and I loved it.

Book two gave me more twists and grabbed my attention even more and got me rooting for Tallitha and hopefully the next book is just as good!

Goodreads 5* Review …’This is an amazing second book in The Morrow Secrets story and I loved it. It is even more sinister than the first with witches, ghouls and the occult. Tallitha’s adventures continue in the strange land of Breedoor. More characters, more twists and turns plus the supernatural abounds. A cracking good read!’…   Find out what happens to Tallitha and Tyaas in the next instalment of their spellbinding adventure..
