Shadow Mountain is a unique novel that is unlike anything I have read before. The focus of the story is the protagonist called Delta Wade. Delta lives at the peak of the beautiful Shadow Mountain with her son, and it is here that she practices the old ways of magic and conjuring and she is hoping that when her son is old enough, he will too and will use those powers to protect mankind. However soon Delta’s and Lafette’s peace is disrupted when one man seeks to destroy Delta’s home. Although another seeks to be close to Delta, what follows is a charming, moving and captivating novel that should not be missed!
