Product description

Review

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. --http://www.leicester.towntalk.co.uk/news/d/39793

'I can't just give this series 10 stars, I give it 15 stars. There is one word to describe The Morrow Secrets, amazing!' --Chantelle, Mammamummymum Blog

It's testament to the power of Susan McNally's unique and singular imagination that she has managed to craft such a brilliant book within a genre that is so well-trodden. Her debut novel throws readers into the sublime and suspenseful world of magic and mystery, creatures and castles, somehow managing to never sound stale. The first in a trilogy, The Morrow Secrets borrows the best bits from Gothic fiction past and adds Susan's own brand of eccentricity that will delight readers young and old. --http://www.bangzo.com/blog/the-morrow-secrets-breathing-new-life-into-the-ghost-of-gothic-literature/

About the Author

Susan McNally's love of books and strange make-believe worlds began in her childhood in the North of England. Her parents were great storytellers, recounting ghost stories and fairy tales that ignited her lifelong love of the fantasy and mystery genres. Susan wanted to recreate this world, to take readers on a magical adventure. And so began the idea for The Morrow Secrets, a dark spellbinding trilogy of intrigue, magic and suspense. Susan lives with her husband in North London.

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!

Format: Hardcover
Tallitha is trapped in the castle, Hellstone Tors, along with her brother, as she has been betrayed and is being forced to become one of the swarm. She is determined to free her Aunt Esmerelda who is trapped in the Bleak Rooms, a terrible prison, and to also break the pact before she becomes one of the swarm. With a mysterious boy following her, is she able to trust him or does he have his own agenda?

The Shadow of the Swarm is the enjoyable sequel to The Morrow Secret, and it has action, suspense and a mysterious and creepy feeling. I found this book more interesting than the previous book as it is not as slow and has more POVs.

Tallitha is not as trusting as she was in the last book but just as determined to do what she has set her mind to. With more POVs we also get to see what is happening at both Hellstone Tors and at The Winderling Spires. Quillam was an interesting character and I wish we could have learned more about him, and I was still really annoyed by Tyaas and I wish he would grow up.

I liked this book more than the last one and am looking forward to the final book in the trilogy The Dark Spell. I would recommend The Shadow of the Swarm to fans of the first book The Morrow Secrets.

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!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the characters continue their gothic adventure and take us ong for the ride. My children loved this as their night time book and couldn't wait for the next installment. If you love Harry Potter and Gormenghast you should buy this book!
