Preorder - Reign of Shadows:

Goodreads Description:

Seventeen years ago, an eclipse cloaked the kingdom of Relhok in perpetual darkness. In the chaos, an evil chancellor murdered the king and queen and seized their throne. Luna, Relhok’s lost princess, has been hiding in a tower ever since. Luna’s survival depends on the world believing she is dead.

But that doesn’t stop Luna from wanting more. When she meets Fowler, a mysterious archer braving the woods outside her tower, Luna is drawn to him despite the risk. When the tower is attacked, Luna and Fowler escape together. But this world of darkness is more treacherous than Luna ever realized.

With every threat stacked against them, Luna and Fowler find solace in each other. But with secrets still unspoken between them, falling in love might be their most dangerous journey yet.

Fallon's (quick no spoiler) Review:

I was so excited to receive this book early. I was a little worried that the story would be too dark for me but Sophie created a dark world that transcends to so many people in a genius way. Reign of Shadows is such a unique fast paced read that will keep you up all night flying through the pages. I adored the Dual POV and honesty the only complaint you can have is when your finished you want more. I plan on re-reading this again soon. Now this is a quick no spoiler review so I am going to use Gifs to show you some of the elements that I loved.

ok first the world is in dark due to an Eclipse that has lasted and nobody knows when it will end.

Bats have become larger and hunt in a world of dark

Some do not dare enter the water since the world has become dark it is hard to see the depths below 

If you happen to wander outside you run not knowing what is lurking around for easy prey

Lastly I love Luna. She is one of my favorite characters. I have not loved a heroine this much in a long time. She may have shortcomings but she does not let that hold her back.

Sophie gives you everything you expect from her writing and more. There were moments I was smirking and giddy and then moments I did not want to stop reading so I could actually sleep at night. This is a must read! I hope you all fall in love with this story as much as I have.

About the Author

Sophie Jordan took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first historical romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History.

A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as interesting as literature - teaching English seemed the natural recourse. After several years teaching high school students to love Antigone, Sophie resigned with the birth of her first child and decided it was time to pursue the long-held dream of writing.

In less than three years, her first book, Once Upon A Wedding Night, a 2006 Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Nominee for Best First Historical, hit book shelves. Her second novel, Too Wicked To Tame, released in March 2007 with a bang, landing on the USA Today Bestseller's List


  1. What a beautiful premise. The darkness offers a great environment for an author to work with, and from the sounds of your review, Sophie Jordan seizes all of that potential in her writing.
