Claire - The Coffeeholic Bookworm
This is the second book in the Shadow Tales series and it's really good! Toby is back, as well as Rachel, plus some new characters that you would either love or hate.

Toby was recruited to help other people hunt the supernaturals. In Germany. Never did he realize that there was a group that faced different monsters and creatures and he felt the urge to extend whatever assistance he could give. He showed everyone that he wasn't only brawn and muscles, he was also brains and emotions. He thought t

*I received a free copy from the author for an honest review*

When I first joined the blog tour, the blurb hinted at an interesting tale and I was happy to pick it up to read. But when I started reading the book, I realised I had unwittingly picked up a sequel. It seemed to be the second book in a series and I had never read the first one.

So I was kind of surprised that I was able to follow the story from the start. It had enough back story on the characters introduced in the previous book to kno

First you don’t need the first book in the series to read this one but it may help understand why Toby was recruited. This is a interesting unique story that is great for Halloween time to read. Toby is trying to get over what happened to him but also find his purpose in life. He wants to help people unfortunately his friend’s words keep haunting him. When the hunters come to recruit him he feels that this is right for him.

I feel Toby is a strong character. His strength comes from within and wa

I really enjoyed this book! The first few chapters felt a bit weird because the story starts with a new character and it doesn't seem to connect to the first book in the series… but soon everything comes together and the fun begins!

I love the short chapters and the fast-paced plot. The story structure is amazing and the character development is nicely done. We can see that all the main characters have their own fears and motives and their behavior makes perfect sense. The foreshadowing is perfec

This book started off relatively slowly, building in intensity, until it reached the awesome ending ...

This is book two of the Shadow Tales series by this author, and this book did not disappoint in any way. I would recommend reading the first book, as even though this can be read as a standalone to some degree, it is much better knowing the history behind the cha

Something Wiccan is James Drummond's second book in the Shadow Tales series. This novel starts with the veteran hunter, Jack Steele, stalking the bait that's attracting the vampire, Lazlo Dahl. This is the only lead that he has to Alister McKean, the vampire he has been hunting for almost 20 years. Toby Hoffman becomes Jack's apprentice as a hunter. He finds it isn't easy putting your life on the line hunting these mystical creatures most people think are fairy tales. Natalie brings a new twist ...more

I did not know what to expect going into this book since the last one had wrapped things up pretty well. But I’m glad I did. The book had a slow start at first much like the last one but once things got going it really got going in terms of action. There were a lot of plot twists as well especially with the changing perspectives.

The character development also felt stronger in this book compared to the last book

Supernatural exciting adventure

Werewolves, vampires , witches, and more. The story is a supernatural adventure with a wide variety of monsters to track and kill while trying to stay alive in the process. Toby has already saved his town and joined an international hunters group protecting the world and his first mission is to help Natalie Sherwood with a little problem in her hometown. As Toby soon discovers he may been in too deep dealing with this monster problem. The story is well written and

Something Wiccan (Shadow Tales book #2) by James Drummond continues this series with panache. There are all kinds of supernatural beings in this book from werewolves to vampires. Toby the main character has experienced a lot of loss in his life. In this tale, however, he is recruited by a hunter in Germany to hunt down monsters. From there the story takes off and develops well. You don't need to read the first book in the series to read this one, it works fine as a standalone. You will find the ...more

In this second book of the Shadow Tales.

Toby has survived the loss of his mother, and the deaths of his classmates and friends. But he still feels disconnected. Approached by a hunter from Germany he decides to follow his desire to be 'a hero' and goes to Germany to train to be a monster hunter.

Each book seems to deal with a different type of monster/magic user, so they can actually stand alone if you pick them up out of order. But i'm a stickler for reading in order if I can.

Another excellent book for this series. Fantastic Characters and Plot. Well written and reads fast. Continuous action. Lots of magic and fighting. No graphic sexual content or swearing. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and am greatly looking forward to the next book in the series. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Can't wait to read what the author brings out next.

Well I definitely had to give this book 5 stars! Once started, I found I had to force myself to put it down and go to sleep - as if that was easy. The characters are very well written and the action and excitement of the storyline are compelling. I’m looking forward to the next book.

This was a fun read, I felt like I was reading/watching episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel and throw in some Charmed too. I can’t really figure out who my favorite character was though.

I was given an ARC book for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.


Let me start off by saying this book was GOOD! I would give this book 10 stars if I was able to. This is book 2 in a series, but I read it as a stand alone. Book 1 was not needed to read this book, but I will for sure be going back to pick it up. Once I picked this book up, I could not put it down!

We find Toby trying to work through what happened in The One You Feed and saving his town from werewolves. He knows he is a good guy but he is getting eaten up by grief from what happened. But he is invited to join an international group of paranormal hunters. After some training, he is returned to a town close to his home town to help out.

Natalie stumbles upon a book of incantations and starts wondering how this can be related to her mother. After messing around with it, she learns that magic c

This is the second book in the Shadow Tales series and in my opinion it was better. As much as I love werewolves I'm much more of a hunter and witch person. This was pretty fast paced and very entertaining. The usage of magic was interesting and easy to follow.

It goes deeper into Toby and Rachel's lives and introduces some new characters. Natalie was a new character and I really liked her parts. I ended up wanting to get to her parts and not caring about the other POV's as much. Other than Toby

I found out after reading this book that it was a "book 2" I honestly never had any idea that was the case. I was able to get right into it and did at no time feel I missed something.
This is well written and a very captivating read. I really did not want to put it down. It did skip from character to character but that helped in keeping the pace moving right along. The characters draw you in and make you like them. Typical teenagers...with a twist, I feel the author walked that line of kids but

Carrying on where things left off, you are transported into a world where monsters beyond werewolves exist and Toby has been chosen to help fight against these monsters.
I think you can see Toby's sheer determination in this book to want to help others, a void he is trying desperately to fill even if he comes close to his own death. I enjoyed reading the book and enjoyed the quick introduction of new characters, I say quick because the story is non-stop action, towards the end I found it very h

This is book 2 in the Out of The Dark series and it is just as brilliant as the first!

Toby is back and after his run in with Werewolf's in the first book he is enlisted to join a elite group of hunters who are scouring the world for other supernatural beings.

It starts with a hunter named Jack tracking down a vampire in Ireland and we get a little of his story before he is sent to the States to get Toby to join him. This book is still fast paced but it is not at gory a the first book.

The drama continues to grow.......

This book 2 in the series 'Out of the dark' amps up the suspense with many evil characters.

It's sometimes hard to know who to be the most afraid of!!
