Rowan might be the firstborn of the Whelan sisters, but her magic is far from first class. Outshone by her younger sisters’ rare and powerful gifts hasn’t been easy, but she has always taken her position as leader of their family seriously. Even more seriously when her sisters are endangered and they lose—yet again—the Book of Sindal, a magical tome of evil spells and inca ...more

Where to even begin? I loved this book much more than I could imagine! I'm still under the spell of Reign of Mist (Book of Sindal#2) It captivated me from the very first page until the very last one and yet it don't let me go. Somehow I didn't see this coming because I was still all and good in the previous - Phoebe's story though I was head over heels excited for Rowan's story! I don't know how Denise Grover Swank & Alessandra Thomas does it but this book hit home - like lightning, shockingly p ...more

Reign of Mist is everything I love about Urban Fantasy! A fiesty troubled heroine, dark and complex storyline and a swoon-worthy hero! This novel took this series to the next level and had a lot of WTF moments peppered throughout the story.

I had a feeling I would love Rowen's story and I'm happy to say I was right! I connected with her right out of the gate and felt like we're twins. Her struggle with struggles with and her feelings of being rejected, unwanted and worthlessness from her family

I have been pulled deeper into the Whelan sister’s world, and I love it!

There is so much that happens in this book / series and it’s extremely hard to tell you why you need to read it without giving spoilers. Here’s what you need to know:- each book is about one of the sisters, telling part of an overall journey in their own POV. The time frame is one after the other, none is overlapping and nothing is repeated. The series is based on witches and magic, but it’s more of a mystery discovery all

This is the book I wanted the most. I was more then excited to learn it was the second book. I was amazed in how the whole story unfolded. It went way beyond what I expected. Rowan is my favorite so far. She has to overcome so much more to me then her sisters do or did. Rowan's personality is the best. She has me grinning or laughing out loud. I think she is the key to keep them together. I am going to confess that I didn't know if I was going to like another police boyfriend but Logan works for ...more

I have a confession - a few years ago I would have scoffed at the idea of reading PNR (ParaNormal Romance) or UF (Urban Fantasy) books. But then I discovered DGSwank. I decided to give her UF books a try since I had read and loved everything else she has written. So, I now have to admit that I love those genres - a well-written and well-developed book is always an enjoyable read. If you find an author you enjoy, branch out and give books on other genres a try. Believe me, I am so glad I did and ...more

Wow what just happened? This book has left me speechless.... Rowan is such an amazing person and someone we can all relate to. And the writing in this book is so amazing that you will not be able to put it down. There's so many twists, turns and things happening that you will find yourself thinking about this even after you have finished it.

Reign of Mist, book 2 in the Book of Sindal series, is told from the perspective of Rowan, the oldest Whelan sister. I really liked her character in the first novel, so I was excited for her POV! DGS and Alessandra Thomas did not disappoint! Rowan makes for a wonderfully protective big sister, with lots and lots of sass. I’m all about a sassy main character, so I loved her. Logan is a terrific love interest as well. He’s swoony and strong and just yum. I love how the series moves forward in diff ...more

Reign of Mist is the second in the captivating new Book of Sindal Series.
Rowan is the oldest of the three Whelan sisters, whose family has been charged with guarding the magical Book of Sindal for generations. Being the oldest has its challenges, but Rowan is not easily intimidated. That’s a good thing because in this installment she is truly put to the test. And can she really trust Officer Logan Gillespie to understand the complexity of her situation?

Holy hells! Don’t sleep on this series y’all. It’s seriously amazing! In Reign of Mist we learn about the oldest Whelan sister, Rowan, who has been outshone by both of her sisters paranormal abilities her entire life. But this doesn’t stop her from protecting her family and fighting for their safety at all costs. Will Rowan’s powers be the key to unlocking the Book of Sindal?

Wow! Trust no one! Rowan believes her magic is weak and useless. A simple trick most witches and mages can do. Now the Dark sect wasn’t her to use her magic in ways she never imagined. Can Rowan believe she has the power inside her? If she finds this magic can use it to save herself and her sisters? So many twist and turns it’s make you wonder who’s good or evil? Whose trying to get power from the book? How does a non magical hottie fit in? I hope you open the book and find out! I can’t wait for ...more

What do I think of this book?? The better question is where do I even begin. Reign of Mist leaves you needing more. It leaves you trying desperately to turn a page that isn’t there. This is Rowan’s story, her journey and her struggle with what she has always known, she’s just average.... or is she??? There are twists and some
Interesting realizations. I can’t wait for the third book!!!

This book is such a thriller. Book 2 of this series is such a captivating book!! I absolutely love Rowan’s POV. I was literally on the edge of my seat while reading this series. It really is a all-consuming, and spellbinding series. So many questions were answered in this book. I was literally SWOONING over my new book boyfriend y’all. You gotta meet this hot guy!!

Love this series and loved Rowan’s point of view! This story is full of twists and turns that keep you turning the pages! I had a hard time putting the book down because I wanted answers. I wanted to know Rowan’s piece of the story! I didn’t know who to trust and was completely surprised by one of the characters! . I hope to see more of Rowan in the last book of the series! I can’t wait for more! This is definitely a book that should be on your TBR list along with Descended from Shadows!

Normally I would say this isn't my favorite genre....but I may have to revise that thinking. This is book 2 of 3 in the series. In this one, we learn more about the oldest sister, Rowan. And of course there is a awesome fellow helping her, Logan. What a great read this is. Reign of Mist has everything; suspense, mystery, romance and action. I found myself devouring it in 2 sittings. There are a couple twists that I didn't see coming. I found myself swept up in the story and I honestly couldn't p ...more

So captivating!! This book grabbed my attention from chapter 1. I had a hard time putting it down! I love how the heroine, Rowan, is so strong and sassy, yet we see her vulnerable side and insecurities. Rowan thinks she weak yet she has hidden talents and she strength she never knew was there. I adore her love interest in this book. He's there for her through the most difficult time in her life and sees the good in her. Look forward to some suspense, plot twists, and romance. This book is amazin ...more

WOW!! I didn’t see that coming!! Be prepared for twists you definitely never would have thought of. This book continues from the end of the first one, pulling you right back into the story from the get go. You won’t want to stop reading as you’ll be wondering what’s going to happen next. I love Rowan and her sassy attitude; but underneath it all she is such a loving, caring sister and person. Oh! and Logan.....he’s my new book boyfriend. I am amazed at the magical world that the authors have cre ...more

Reign of Mist was as wonderful as I hoped. I really enjoyed Descended From Shadows and Phoebe and was left excited to learn more about Rowan and couldn't wait to see more of her strong feisty personality. Reign of Mist did not disappointed. I loved getting to know more about Rowan and the sisters past. There were definitely some unexpected twists, juicy details, and steamy love! I believe I like Logan more than Brandon (did not think that was possible). Reign of Mist left me extremely excited fo ...more

Wow, I cannot get over this book. I absolutely loved every minute of it. I found myself thinking about it randomly throughout the day. It was hard to put down from the start of the first page to the very last. I was literally at the edge of my seat several times, yelling at the book. We are taken on a journey with Rowan and learn a lot about the past. So many questions were answered, but like always, you are left with new questions.

Holy wow! This book was from Rowen's perspective. I loved Rowan's sass! She was a sassy badass in the face of evil. I so did not know how this book was going to go. I guessed one thing towards the beginning and ended up being right. But everything else was a total shock to me. I don't know how to say more about it without spoilers so I'll just say I freaking loved it!! It was super intense and action packed! And the romance! Logan is my favorite. Love him!

Reign of Mist by D.G. Swank and Alessandra Thomas
“The weaker Whelan, 4 stars”

Rowan is the weaker of the three Whelan sisters. All she can do is glamour where her younger sisters can do so much more. She’s always been over looked because of her unimportant talent. Even with the down turned noses from the rest of the witches and mages community Rowan knows her talent is needed when protecting the Book of Sin. Now they don’t have the Book of Sin and she doesn’t know what to do.

I'm really enjoying this series. This book focuses on Rowan and Logan. I like Rowan so much. I think she is particularlly appealing mix of fierce and protective. A combo I attribute to her being the oldest sibling and her low self esteem from being what is the least powerful of the three sisters. Logan, was just a super book boyfriend. I loved how he was so supportive of Rowan but most importantly how he was into her. Just her and only her. Everything else didn't matter to him. That kind of love ...more

Holy seven levels of hell!! This book was SO good! I couldn’t put it down! Just when you think you’ve figured it out, plot twist! Rowan is the oldest Whelan sister but the least magical in her eyes. Overshadowed by her magically stronger sisters, Rowan hides her insecurities in the form of her wickedly, sassy, personality. Don’t even get me started on Logan Gillespie. By the goddess, he may be human but he definitely deserves an honorable mention in the swoon department! I can’t wait for book th ...more

Reign of Mist by D.G. Swank and Alessandra Thomas is book two in their Book opf Sindal Trilogy. Reign of Mist is not a standalone. Youz must read the books in order, or you'll be lost. The previous book is Descended from the Shadows and tells Brandon and Phoebe's story.

This is the second book of an amazing series following three sisters who are tasked with protecting the world from an evil book. The first book followed the middle sister (for once they are not neglected), the second books follows the oldest sister, who is considered to be the least powerful. This book has some interesting twists and insight to Rowena's power. The sister's make a brief but powerful cameo in this book.

Such an amazing book. I love the second book of the Book of Sindal series, Reign of Mist.

Rowan is the oldest of the Whelan sisters and this book is her story. This book has it all, it pulled me in from the very beginning and I didn’t want to put it down.

If your looking for a great urban fantasy book and/or series, look no further. You’ll love Reign of Mist. I cannot wait for the third book.

Rowan is sassy, strong, and has overcome so much in life. She may be one of my favorite book characters I’ve had in a while. Don’t want to give any spoilers but Logan...SWOONING over him!

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! When I picked this up, I had a lot going on and couldn’t commit a day to sit down and read so I read it with a lot of stop and go. I felt like I was watching the most action-packed, gripping TV show. At the end of every chapter I could not wait to pick up RoM again and see what was going to happen next. I loved Phoebe’s story in Descended from Shadows but Rowan’s story surpasses that by a mile! I was able to figure out one “surprise” pretty early on but a lot of ...more
