So I have to admit this book took me a while but at no fault of my own! Exams and good old school got in the way and let’s be honest, the two combined can be awfully overwhelming- A-Levels can be a pain!


This was a brilliant read. Truly extraordinary writing and I found it was the best way to gain insight into Sophie as a character. If you have read the series, you need to read this. I find it vital to being able to gain a true understanding of the characters as well as appreciate the series muc

Sophie: Witch-Hunter by K.S. Marsden is an awesome story to read. This is book number two in this awesome series that I have really loved reading ver much. I highly recommend this story to everyone who loves reading about witches , LGBT and fantasy.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This book definitely should be read after the rest of the Witch-Hunter trilogy, as the author suggests, to get a better understanding of the importance of events in the story. I did not like this one as much as the Witch-Hunter trilogy, partly because I never liked Sophie much as a character. She is very conceited in this book, being brought up knowing she would be the next Shadow Witch, and as a teenager it got very annoying after a while as it really goes to her head. But the book does give a ...more

The Witch Hunter Series is: The Shadow Rises, The Shadow Reigns, The Shadow Falls, which I’ve read and reviewed. The stories revolve around the evil witches who sacrifice humans to increase their own powers. In this world, witches are evil and hunted down by the MMC (Malleus Maleficarum Council), a secret witch hunting organization tasked with neutralizing the threat from the witches.

Sophie: Witch Hunter is the second prequel in the Witch Hunter series. In this book, the reader learns how Sophie

***Warning this book contains some horrific scenes, so beware!***

I absolutely LOVE this book series and want to thank the author for my advanced reading copy. This is the second prequel to the Witch-Hunter Trilogy and does contain spoilers from the trilogy so it is highly recommended that you read:-

The Shadow Rises (Witch-Hunter, #1) by K.S. Marsden

A brilliant addition to the Witch-Hunter Series.

In this prequel to the series we find out how Sophie evolved from being a cocky, but unskilled teenage witch into the strong and powerful Shadow Witch.

On her journey she loses friends and ends up closing off her emotions and it’s easy to see how and why she became ruthless, and determined to fight the Witch-Hunters.

This is the second prequel in the Witch-Hunter Series, (which I love) and as such it does contain spoilers to the main trilogy. I would

While this book is described as a prequel, my reading experience was richer for having read The Shadow Rises – book 1 in the Witch-Hunter trilogy, beforehand. In this tale, we meet teenaged witch Sophie on the brink of her sixteenth birthday – in anticipation of receiving her powers. Struggling at times to hang on to her humanity, and despite her human friend Izzy to keep her grounded, Sophie soon realizes that she can’t live in two worlds. Impatient to fulfill her destiny, will Sophie’s aloof a ...more

This is a great read. It grabbed me from the first page to the last. It is a real page turner. This is a great story of Sophie has always had a high opinion of herself. Since a young age she has had to weigh duty against selfish things she wants. But she doesn't know who she can trust. This is a great story. With great world building and Character building. I definitely recommend this read.

Oh this is such a brilliant read, I love Sophie as the shadow witch I have read about in the previous series, where she is strong in her powers already, but seeing her coming into her powers and being unbound is awesome. I love that now she is ready to tackle the wicked witch-hunters and has the magical strength to do so and I would love to see a full blown battle where she will really kick some hunters' ass!! However I can also see how she can become quite ruthless and closing off her heart to ...more

Is she really cold hearted, or more badly burned

Being told that some betrayals are for your good- not helpful.

So as it all begins, and before other things really start, this is the ground where much was planted, and so much twisted and tainted.

This is a great read and Sophie is such a great character! Well written you get to join Sophie on her journey and see why she wants to fight the witch hunters so badly! You get to see her develop and grow into herself and become such a powerful witch. An exciting read that I just could not put down!

While reading the Witch-Hunter Trilogy, I asked myself many times why Sophie was the way she was...what made her so ruthless and unfeeling. To put it bluntly, what made her such a b*tch. Ms. Marsden does a fantastic job of showing us why with this prequel. It shows us Sophie's journey from conceited, powerful, but untrained teenager to the ultra-powerful Shadow Witch. We see her through friendship, uncertainty, and betrayal, until ultimately she locks away those weaknesses that would hamper her ...more

Holy hell! Marsden delivers one incredibly spun debacle with this explosive wild ride, keeping you riveted on a razors edge and frozen to your seat, raising the stakes and keeping it real, melding this bad boy together flawlessly. Chicanery runs rampant and havoc is rife, rousting all the drama, intrigue, turmoil, underlying threats, escalating danger, spiraling suspense and intense situations along with a boatload of revelations, you have one high octane experienc

A look into Sophie's life leading her to be the Shadow Witch. Contributing to her Shadow Witch persona is the betrayal by her first friend (and lover), and the binding, and ultimately death, of her mentor. Sophie hardens her heart magically and hides away the locket containing her emotions; no more of that to weaken her! Great fast paced read, with excellent characters and plot.
