In The Shadow of Light is a tale of mystery, magic, love, and betrayal all wrapped up in the beautiful city of Florence, Italy. I’ll keep this review spoiler free, but it’s a unique take on history with a magical twist. The magic is a soft undercurrent with an important role that grows and grows, and with it so does Vittoria, the main character. So much revolves around her decisions and you go on the journey with her to see how it all turns out.

The characters are fun and fascinating, and you wa

Loved the pace and characters! I usually don't gravitate towards the historical fiction genre, but once I began it pulled me right in. There was a nice whimsical element to it—that I honestly wasn't expecting—yet it felt very natural, and not over-the-top. Can't wait to read the next one.

Lovable characters keep this novel moving forward at an exciting pace. It's a great twist on the classic good vs evil magic and well worth the read!

Wow! I picked this up by chance at a local bookstore. The author was there promoting her book. The cover caught my eye and after talking with her about the book I thought I’d give it a try. I’m so glad I did!

From the get go there was a lot of drama and action. I was swept up in the romance and the magic. She really made history come alive and I could totally picture Florence in my mind as if I were there.

This was a nice escape - a quick, easy read. I’m looking forward the next book.

There are a few well done things in this novel that some readers will enjoy. I liked parts of it--moments of good action, some interesting characters, a setting I'm intrigued by. Overall, though, it's uneven, with long stretches of unconvincing, exposition-laden dialogue, and main characters who have almost nothing to do--a bit of travel, from Florence to the countryside and back, about covers it. The antagonists, who bring about a plague and have plans to destroy their enemies, have much more c ...more
