4.5 Stars

This was second in Shadow Magic series that revolved around Marcus Fith, his quest of finding his twin sister Ellie and saving her from the danger. It was about dark magic, conflicted family relationship, sibling love, and good vs evil. It included loads of action packed adventure with magical mysterious twists.

Initially, I couldn’t recall much what happened in first book but author didn’t let me stray from the current plot a

My dad is the Mr Winegar at the start of this book. He's in the book, I think because of my constant pestering of him asking Mr Swapp if his book was done yet. I loved The Magic Shop and couldn't wait to continue the adventure.

The beginning was a good touch. Seeing it was from Winston’s perspective made me immediately start to smile. I was eager to read the book since the last one. The suspense was killing me when my dad told me to stop reading and get in the car. I couldn’t put it down while re

The Shadows Servant: The Shadow Magic Series, Book 2 written by Justin Swapp. The audiobook is narrated by Steve Barnes with a total running time of 12 hours and 2 minutes. During that time the listener is taken on an adventure with Marcus Fifth as he endeavors to save his twin sister Ellie one year after she was taken by the absent Mother Mirella. When Ellie’s guardian Ellamir; a talking cat, arrives and leaves a mysterious blank letter for him to solve to find his sister the story begins to re ...more

I just have to be honest and tell you how hard it was for me to put it down! My kids would wake up from a nap or wake up in the morning and I would say NOOOOOOO! It took me two days and only about 9 hours to read because I couldn't stop!

I haven't read an actual book in a while and it reminded me of my love for reading. There were several time's I told my husband they really need to make a movie of the series, as I read I could picture everything vividly. I love how descriptive Justin is in his

The Book

Marcus is trying to save his sister Ellie after the events of book one, the cast of characters is good and I think the story is better than the first book. There's plenty of action and Marcus story is engaging and interesting as we see him develop as he does everything he can to save his sister. There's lots of different settings and the whole family situation develops well too as well as lot

Another spellbinder from the master.
Justin loads us into his tale, and abruptly swings into the current. Twists and turns bouncing us off hidden boulders, spinning around whirlpools and, occasionally, letting us settle into the lulls between the rapids.
A master storyteller, I highly recommend following Marcus as he searches for his sister - Listen to The Shadow's Servant or catch up to the beginning with The Magic Shop.

An outstanding book that picked up right where the first book left off. I found myself really enjoying my commute to work and sometimes I didn't want to get out of the car. There was much more action in this book compared to the first. The Shadow's Servant has an entertaining storyline and the narrator was fantastic.

Marcus is still trying to find his sister who was taken by their mother in Book 1.A new cousin shows up,but is he good or bad?This was a good follow up to The Magic Shop.I enjoyed it. Steve Barnes was a good narrator.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

This was a really good story, but for some reason, it did not hold my attention as well as the first book in the series. I think it is a little darker (which isn't a bad thing). The narration of the audiobook is great, and the narrator does so many different voices to give life to the characters. There were a lot of good twists and new information brought to light. I listened to this one with my kids, and it seemed to hold their attention for the most part, though it is quite a long book. Overal ...more
