Release + Review - D.G. Swank and Alessandra Thomas - Reign of Mist

Reign of Mist by D.G. Swank and Alessandra Thomas is available now!

"Oh Gods I absolutely loved this book!" - Nicki, Goodreads Reviewer

Rowan might be the firstborn of the Whelan sisters, but her magic is far from first class. Outshone by her younger sisters’ rare and powerful gifts hasn’t been easy, but she has always taken her position as leader of their family seriously. Even more seriously when her sisters are endangered and they lose—yet again—the Book of Sindal, a magical tome of evil spells and incantations their small coven of three has been tasked to protect.

When the Dark Set, a group of mages determined to take over the magical community comes for Rowan, she turns to an unexpected and very human source. Local cop Logan Gillespie might not be a mage, but he’s not to be underestimated.

The question is why Rowan? As the weakest witch, she shouldn’t be of interest to the Dark Set. Yet they’re sure she’s the secret to unlocking the power of the book.

Can she convince them they’re wrong? She has to find a way because the lives of her sisters, Logan, and possibly the world depend on it.

Book two of the Book of Sindal series. (Rowan)

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 weaker Whelan, 4 stars”

Rowan is the weaker of the three Whelan sisters. All she can do is glamour where her younger sisters can do so much more. She’s always been over looked because of her unimportant talent. Even with the down turned noses from the rest of the witches and mages community Rowan knows her talent is needed when protecting the Book of Sin. Now they don’t have the Book of Sin and she doesn’t know what to do.

Local cop Logan wants Rowan. He doesn’t care who she is or what she does. He just wants her for her. When they are taken by The Dark Set there is only one way to get out. Logan will have to let Rowan lead. The question is will he be able to keep her grounded in the truth?

I genuinely liked Rowan and Logan. They are both very protective people and they worked well together. I liked how in Reign of Mist Rowan got in on the action. She stepped up and didn’t crumble. Logan was exactly what she needed.

Now with that said….we get to what I didn’t like. In book one and Reign of Mist they pushed how Rowan was overlooked, and maybe I’m crazy but I felt like that rolled into how Swank and Thomas wrote the story. Was there action in the story? Yes. Did I feel like Rowan grew into her power and realize she was more than other Glamourists? Yes. But personally, I felt like her story was a little rushed. There wasn’t a lot of just her and Logan outside of being taken hostage.  Even with that said I think the story deserves 4 stars, I just wish Rowan got a little more attention. I cannot wait though to see how Swank and Thomas wrap up this series and who can and cannot be trusted.
