Review: The Shadow Wand by Laurie Forest

Title: The Shadow Wand

Series: Black Witch Chronicles #3

Author: Laurie Forest


Elloren Gardner hides the most powerful secret in all Erthia—she is the Black Witch of Prophecy, and destined to triumph…or be used as the ultimate weapon of destruction.

Separated from everyone she loves, isolated and hunted, Elloren must turn to the last person she can trust—her fastmate, Commander Lukas Grey. With the Mage forces of Gardneria poised to conquer all of Erthia, Elloren has no choice but to ally with Lukas and combine their power to keep herself out of the hands of Gardnerian leader Marcus Vogel…the holder of the all-consuming Shadow Wand.

With just weeks to train to become a warrior, and no control over her magic, Elloren finds unexpected allies among those under orders to kill her. It’s time to step up. To fight back. And to forge onward through the most devastating loss yet.

Things are going along, Elloren goes to Lukas for help and WW3 breaks out!

I actually loved this book and I’ve totally switched from liking both love interests to be firmly in the Team Lukas camp. And let me tell you why……..

Lukas is literally the only person who has done anything to remotely help Elloren. He builds her up, he protects her, he’s there for her, he is good for her in every way and she is also good for him. They were beautiful together.

To say I spent the majority of this book in a Lukas haze is an understatement. I am now questioning Ellorens pull to Yvan at all so I am actually dreading reading the next book.

Honestly I don’t think my heart can take another pounding so I’ve decided to wait to read Demon Tide as I just don’t think I can take it if anything bad happens to Lukas and I just know that Yvan is going to make a miraculous appearance (that’s a guess!) and I don’t want that!

Anyway….not much of a review apart from my Lukas gushes, a moan and you having a front row seat to my tantrum about the next book!!!
