An adventurous journey that will leave you breathless. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing this story is. The emotion and passion that was poured into these pages is simply incredible.
Meanwhile the Author paints such a vivid picture that it is like being right there seeing it all unfold.
Well done Ms. Thorn!

Blood of Shadows takes us to a new world. A world that consists of the three kingdoms; Malna, Zockii and Tirllyn. Layna (or Malayna) is the princess of Zockii, but not the ruler of the kingdom. Her brother Ariston has that privilege. Instead Layna chose a different way to serve her people – by becoming a Black Shadow, an elite of warriors. Black Shadows are doing the necessary – what ever that might be.
Ulric took control over Malna a long time ago, and becoming more and more ruthless as time wen

I am not fond of the word “Nice”. To me it is middle -of- the- range, non-committing word that indicates lack of any strong reaction or involvement, in other words it is “steamed white rice” of the emotional smorgasbord, and unfortunately for me Blood of Shadows was just that, a nice read. This to my mind is a shame as it has good basic storyline, likable characters and elements, which if developed properly, would result in an exiting book. However, as it is at the moment, it is suffering from ...more

There is a War on the horizon. There have been many attacks already and lots of innocent people are being killed. Princess Malayna is part of the Shadows and is partnered with someone she never wanted. Can Malayna survive and find out who the traitor is? A well written must read by Mariana Thorn - would definitely recommend to everyone.

If you look in the local coffee shop or bookstore you might just find Mariana Thorn. She can usually be found with headphones in and deep into the worlds she has created. There is this thing about her pens if you touch them you might receive a smack to the hand and the well-known glare of destruction.
As a child all her stories involved horses, horses and more horses. There might have been a sligh
