Author Biography

Fantasy author Natalie Johanson lives in the beautiful mountain valley of Utah with her two cats, Watson and Holmes, and her adorable wife. She spends far too much time staring out of windows, drinking tea, and buying books she’ll never have the time to read.

Her debut novel, Shadow’s Voice, became an award-winning book, followed quickly by Shadow’s Past. The award-winning series, The Shadowstalker, continues to grow and monopolize much of her time and focus; not that she had much to begin with.

Reviewed by Alicia DeBerry for Readers' Favorite

Rose Trewin and King Micah Ellsworth are back at it again with huge decisions that need to be made. In Shadow’s Fall (Shadow Stalker Series Book 3), Natalie Johanson takes us further into their world. King Micah, returning from war in the south fighting the trespassers who attacked, finds his people in peril. There is an uprising against magic being led by a religious group, they are facing famine and pressure about him not having a queen. Rose has discovered a Shademaker Clan and has become the chief. She is working to learn how to control her magic more. Since Gerik, the powerful mage set on destroying everything, escaped capture by King Micah, she must hunt him down in the south and kill him.

Natalie Johanson's third installment in the series is so exciting. Although it is part of a series, it stands alone well. I got great recaps of past events at the right moments to help me understand what happened before and how it ties to the present events occurring. I was able to create very vivid pictures in my mind of the action with all the clear descriptions from the aftermath of the war at the beginning to the forest of the Shademaker Clan where there is a magical shadow shroud to keep them hidden. I loved getting to know the names of the Shadows as they appeared. The battle against Gerik was intense. I am intrigued by learning more about the connection between Rose and King Micah and rooting for them. I can't wait for the next book to be released, so I can get more answers about the new enemies that have appeared.
