Shadow of Hope, Molly Crowe




Was the next name on Mahan’s list, and it had me questioning everything. It had been seven years since I’d seen her, and now she was betrothed to Captain Luke Ramsey. She would never choose me over him, and she shouldn’t. He was an accomplished captain with the world at his fingertips. I was an orphan with a shady past. I had nothing to offer her but lies about who I was and apologies I hoped she’d never know she deserved. Even so, two things were keeping a small spark of my hope alive. One was the way Kalista looked at me. The other was the way she looked at him. If I was seeing clearly, she didn’t love him. I remembered how she looked at me when she saw me in the stables. I had seen it in her eyes. Delight.

Shadow of Hope is a phenomenal book written by the talented author, Molly Crowe, and wow what a sensational story! Shadow of Hope is a book I was keen to read ever since discovering it because I always love to find inspiring fantasy romance stories with a twist to read so when I discovered Shadow of Hope I thought ‘Is this finally the perfect book?!’. Now that I have finished Shadow of Hope, I can happily write that yes it is book lovers. Shadow of Hope is an exceptionally well-written and well-developed story and that is why I already have to recommend you lovely readers have a read! However, if you need more convincing then continue to read to learn more!

Shadow of Hope is a sensational novel that will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the novel, Kalista, a Princess, whose world is turned upside down when she finds herself torn between love and duty but it is much more complicated than this. Kalista, despite being betrothed to Captain Luke Ramsey, finds herself captivated once again by somebody from her past – an assassin – who once saved her life but now poses a threat. The love triangle that follows is a captivating one where we see Kalista torn between the two amongst a fantasy backdrop with plenty of political intrigue and it makes for a tale that shouldn’t be missed and this book lovers is the short premise of the incredible Shadow of Hope!

Shadow of Hope is a thrilling novel thanks to the enthralling and action-packed moments as well as the unpredictable nature of the book that will have the readers turning the pages with haste from beginning to end. I love books that involve a journey because usually in these stories the character develops and grows as they overcome events which in turn adds to the development of the character and explores life lessons throughout the book and that is most certainly the case with Shadow of Hope!

Molly Crowe is an incredibly talented and excellent author who clearly knows how to write unique but engaging stories. It was evident to me from the start that Crowe is a passionate writer who surely loves entertaining readers with her literature and putting a smile on readers’ faces. I loved this about the author, but what I loved the most about Crowe’s writing was her remarkable descriptions because they genuinely amazed me. Fantasy novels, in general, are challenging to write because you have to transport the reader quickly and effortlessly, but sadly this is rarely accomplished in an adventure/magical story but not with Shadow of Hope. Shadow of Hope is the way it is because Crowe knows what she is doing!

To conclude, Shadow of Hope is a marvelous, stellar, and supreme fantasy romance tale that will entertain, delight as well as charm readers! And so I, of course, have to award this book five stars! Be sure to have a read of the preview below book lovers, you won’t regret it!
