The Shadow Weave by Annette Marie || Blog Tour Review with Giveaway

 

  GOODREADS SUMMARY  

Clio might be a nymph living in exile among humans. And she might possess the rare ability to mimic any magic she sees. And she might have just seriously ticked off the most powerful family of spell weavers in the Underworld.

But she is not in love with an incubus.

Lyre is the rebellious black sheep of said weaver family, and he’s the only reason she survived her recent Underworld “vacation.” He’s also the sexiest thing she’s ever seen. Together, they have to track down a catastrophically dangerous magic—a magic he created, she sort of stole, and they both lost—before his family gets their hands on it. And that means fighting alongside him in a desperate attempt to avert complete disaster.

But she is definitely not in love with him. At least, she’s pretty sure she’s not.

Mostly sure. Maybe sure? …Crap.

  REVIEW  

book review rating 4 out of 5

I'VE READ MY fair share of trilogies. I’ve come to notice that the second book is usually a meandering filler whose sole purpose is to take the edge off of the withdrawal for waiting fans, and to set the stage for the conclusion. Well, I can assure you, The Shadow Weave by Annette Marie, is no filler book. It is a book of more! Much more!!

More WORLD-BUILDING . . . To think that I’ve experienced the Steel and Stone Universe is like saying I’ve been to Europe and only visited Paris. What about London? Italy? Ms. Marie continues to dazzle me with how vast and sprawling the setting of her story is. In the second installment, she takes us deep into the Overworld. It’s lush and wild; beautiful and deadly.

More ROMANCE . . . Despite all signs of warning, Clio continues to fall deeply for Lyre--charmer and seducer. His flirting is deliciously scandalous.

More EXCITEMENT . . . As the danger builds around Clio and Lyre, and their enemies attacking from all sides, they must find a way to stop a rogue nymph from unleashing the most powerful spell ever created or all magic, as they know it, will be destroyed.

Annette Marie’s new story arc in the Steel and Stone Universe is the perfect opportunity for first-time readers to jump into her vivid and gorgeous world. The Spell Weaver is an original fantasy with unrelenting action, strong characters, and denied passion, from cover to cover.

 

  AUTHOR BIO  

Annette Marie

Annette Marie is the author of the Amazon best-selling YA urban fantasy series Steel & Stone, which includes the 2015 Goodreads Choice Award nominee Yield the Night. Her first love is fantasy, a limitless realm of creativity where she can break all the boring rules of real life, but fast-paced urban fantasy, bold heroines, and tantalizing forbidden romances are her guilty pleasures. She proudly admits she has a thing for dragons, and her editor has politely inquired as to whether she intends to include them in every book.

Annette lives in the frozen winter wasteland of northern Alberta, Canada (okay, it’s not quite that bad). She shares her life with her remarkably patient, comparatively sensible husband and their furry minion of darkness—sorry, cat—Caesar. When not writing, she can be found elbow-deep in one art project or another while blissfully ignoring all adult responsibilities.
