5* Reviews for Supernatural Gothic Fantasy Trilogy

December 20th, 2014

The Shadow of the Swarm Cover 5* What a Fantastic Start to a Fantasy Series! 

The Morrow Secrets was not a predictable book to read at all, whenever I thought I knew what was going to happen there was a twist and I was left shocked. There are a few shocks to this book too.

 

It was a great read for teens, young adults and adults and I would definitely recommend it.

 

I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

haunted-cemetery-hd-wallpaperThe Shadow of the Swarm – 5* 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.

5 stars  – Again, Susan McNally’s, outstanding series exceeds expectation

Book Two – The Shadow of the Swarm! Fantasy Trilogy!

February 3rd, 2014

The Shadow of the Swarm is the second instalment of Susan McNally’s spooky young adult fantasy series, and is the hotly-anticipated sequel to the Bangzo Book of the Year 2013, The Morrow Secrets. Due for release on Thursday 27th March 2014, make sure you don’t miss out on reading this ‘fairy tale of epic proportions’!

The Shadow of the Swarm

The Shadow of the Swarm

The story of Shadow of the Swarm catches up with Tallitha and Tyaas, two determined children of the powerful Morrow family, as they deal with their recent discovery and the severe implications it will have for everyone they hold dear.

The extent of the mysterious family secret was greater than either of them had ever imagined, and the wheels are set in motion to submit them both to what they have been desperately trying to avoid…

The Shadow of the Swarm takes the reader from the monumental cliff-hanger at the end of The Morrow Secrets to their search for the truth. But it seems they will have to endure even more of the dark goings-on that have threatened to surface since the very first page of the trilogy began.

Book One, The Morrow Secrets, which won Bangzo’s coveted Book of the Year Award in 2013 followed the brother-sister duo as they fled their spooky castle home Winderling Spires, in search of their long-lost cousin, and the answers to the web of lies they are convinced their evil family had spun.

Described as a “fantasy roller-coaster delight” and “an epic adventure across dangerous lands”, they met a host of evil creatures, strange monsters and spooky animals on their journey across the mysterious land of Breedoor.

The Morrow Secrets has received outstanding praise from avid readers, both from the Young Adult market and older. With plenty of 4 and 5 Star Reviews on Amazon, book blogs and fan sites like Goodreads.com, McNally’s gripping tale will draw you in, as you enjoy the twists and turns Tallitha and Tyaas experience.

Sink your teeth into this amazing fantasy adventure and pick up a copy of Book One, The Morrow Secrets at Amazon fromwww.amazon.co.uk/The-Morrow-Secrets-Book-Trilogy/dp/1782260358/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1378477202&sr=8-1&keywords=the+morrow+secrets

Dark Gothic Fiction; Great Review for The Morrow Secrets

July 19th, 2012

I just had a great review for The Morrow Secrets on UK Amazon. Whoever you are thank you!

The Strange Morrow Sisters, Edwina & Sybilla

A Dark Treat

You know you’re onto a good book when you start reading it just to get a general feel of the book – only to look up and find it’s been 4 hours since you did anything except read and you have work in the morning. It’s an even better sign when you decide you don’t care much for work anyway and just carry on reading.

That’s exactly what ‘The Morrow Secrets’ is. The first of what looks set to be an incredibly gripping series centred around the adventures of Tallitha and her brother Tyaas as they treck into strange uncharted lands to discover even stranger truths and secrets.

What really stands out about this book is that despite the general consensus being that it’s a children’s novel – the book is unabashedly dark. Not dark in a gratutiously scary way that would dissuade younger readers, but in the same vein that pioneers like Tim Burton and the ‘Series of Unfortunate Events’ have managed to captivate adults as well.

This book is a hugely important addition to that genre and I honestly can’t wait to see what comes next in what looks set to be an epic series.

Gothic Fiction: Great Children’s Book Review

July 19th, 2012

I just had a great review on US Amazon about The Morrow Secrets . I’m so happy that someone, out there in the wild beyond is reading and loving my book! Whoever you are thank you..

Gothic Fun

Early Drawing of a Shrove

A Shrove in Winderling Spires

What a great story! The plot leading you on a dark and dangerous adventure full of intrigue, betrayal and magic.

This book pulls you in and immerses you into a gothic world full of strange creatures, mysterious characters and elusive secrets. The attention to detail is amazing, as well-imagined and developed as anything in the Harry Potter series.

Young girls will especially enjoy the main character Tallitha, a wonderfully strong female character with a rebellious spirit and a taste for adventure! It definitely follows in the footsteps of ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ for fiction that’s not afraid to introduce a little darkness into the story, making it a good read for adults as well.

Accompanied by the superb illustrations, this is a book that will fire the imagination and leave you wondering what’s next in store for Tallitha and the family of Winderling Spires…
