For centuries, Phoebe Whelan’s family of witches and mages has guarded the Book of Sindal, a tome filled with spells so evil it could destroy the world. After their parents’ death six years ago, it’s up to Phoebe and her older and younger sisters—Rowan and Celeste—to guard the book with their magic and their supernaturally fortified land. But Celeste’s expression magic is wild and untamed, and without their mother’s calming influence, Celeste is slowly going mad.

When the book—and Celeste—go missing, the Valarian Small Council believes Celeste stole the deadly book of spells. When they assign Captain Brandon Cassidy, the head of the Magical Protective Force and Phoebe’s former high school crush, to look for the book, and things get a whole lot more complicated.

Soon it becomes apparent a dark force has taken the book, which will only open with the blood of all three Whelans. The Dark Set has the strongest sister, now it needs the blood of the other two. Brandon’s mission quickly changes to include her protection, but Phoebe’s goal has remained the same—find the book and her sister, prove Celeste’s innocence, and let nothing get in her way, including her reawakened feelings for the man at her side.

Pre-Order Book 2, Reign of Mist, NOW!

About the Author:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the area until she was nineteen. Then she became a nomadic gypsy, living in five cities, four states and ten houses over the course of ten years before she moved back to her roots. She speaks English and smattering of Spanish and Chinese which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period. Her hobbies include witty Facebook comments (in own her mind) and dancing in her kitchen with her children. (Quite badly if you believe her offspring.) Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to perform many unspeakable tasks. She has six children and hasn’t lost her sanity. Or so she leads you to believe.

Johnaka's Review 

“the power of three, 5 stars”

In Descended from Shadows we meet three sisters, Phoebe, Rowan, and Celeste. They come from a long line of strong witches and are tasked to keep the book of sin safe and out of the hands of evil. Each of them has mastered their type of magic and are willing to do whatever it takes to keep the book safe, including living a life of solitude. Then the book and Celeste go missing. Rowan and Phoebe know they were taken, but try convincing the council of that.

What Phoebe didn’t expect was for her high school crush to be a mage and be assigned to the case. He wants to know what happened to the book as much as Phoebe does. The only question is will Brandon be able to convince Phoebe that he really does want her for her or is he just using her? Only one way to find out.

Swank sucked me into the witchy world in Descended from Shadows. I loved the different types of magic she infused in the story. There were a couple times the story really clicked with me and I loved it. I still don’t know for sure if Bran is good or if he’s on the fence (dang bloodlines). But I am interested in finding out. I cannot wait to see where Swank takes this series.
