This story was amazing, easy to follow and suspenseful!

There are a few editing errors, some grammatical and it seems to have a word or two missing in some places, but otherwise very well written.

I look forward to reading book 2!

From Out Of The Shadows is an exciting read that had me hooked from the first line in the prologue.

I found myself really loving the characters and wondering when both parties paths would finally cross.

If you're looking for a quick but exciting fantasy read A.G.V McPherson has your back and I honestly cannot wait for book two!
