Shadow’s Voice is a dark and exciting work of fantasy fiction penned by author Natalie Johanson. The central plot follows the young Rose Trewin, a drifter who has much more to her than first meets the eye. Rose has been imbued with deadly magical powers, allowing her to merge with shadows, and now those powers are building into something even more terrifying. As Rose tries to escape those who gave her such powers in the first place, her homeland verges on a devastating civil war. Rose is one of the few people who could actually help to bring peace against an enemy with magic like her own, and so she must face her true self to help those people she cares for.

Author Natalie Johanson writes a cracking read right from the first few pages that immerse readers into the plot right away. Rose Trewin is a character that readers can relate to and be intrigued by at once, journeying with her as different obstacles force her to confront and discover the limits of her own power. The enemies she faces seek the usual power, greed, and total control, and the fact that Rose is far from a pure, selfless hero makes it interesting to see her own motivations coming through as she finds ways to combat forces greater than herself. Overall, Shadow’s Voice is an exciting and enjoyable fantasy read that is sure to please fans of the genre who are seeking unlikely heroes, exciting magical peril and plenty of drama.
