Publisher's Summary

Two people bound by a powerful curse.
When Sophie Turner finally returns home to the sleepy tourist town of Copper Falls, she imagines the kind of life she's always dreamed of: calm, quiet, and peaceful. After years of having her steps haunted by a powerful and devious stalker, she is now living on land settled by her ancestors. She can feel the magic in her blood responding, and she feels like she finally has the chance to build a life.
Until he comes along.
All of her dreams of peace and calm come tumbling down the second Calder Turcotte enters Sophie's life. The danger he brings threatens everything she's worked for, everything she's tried to build for herself. He gives Sophie an ultimatum: break the curse her ancestor set on his family, or lose the very land that's allowing her to heal. and his strength. Helping him is the right thing to do.
She never would have guessed how much she'd end up losing to save him.

A magical tale.

Any additional comments?

This is the first book I've read by this author but it wont be my last!! I loved this and am impatiently awaiting book 2.

Right from the start I was pulled into the story. The plot was fast paced and intriguing and the mystery surrounding the curse was fascinating. I loved finding out about it along with the characters. It was interesting seeing how the curse came about when Sophies' family are all good witches!!

The characters were all well written and developed and I loved each one. Sophie was a strong capable character with a plucky spirit. She has been through a lot and is trying to figure out why her magic isn't as strong as it used to. Though now that she is back at her home town and living on her ancestors land, she starts to see a change in herself.

Then we have Calder. His family are shifters and have been plagued by a curse for centuries and Calder has finally found out which witch put it on them. He didn't realise that he knew the witches family and that the ancestor is now living across the street from him. His childhood sweetheart is the only one able to help find the cure so he must do anything he can to get Sophie to help.

The curse plays an important part of the book and I found it fascinating. We are taken from the 21st century and transported back to when the curse first happened through flashbacks. It was intriguing to see how and why it happened and by who and the saddening impact it has on the descendants.

Anyway, in all this was a truly impressive book. I listened to this in a day because I couldn't put it down! It is a richly detailed and magical read and one I cant recommend enough. Its a tale of lost love, of heartbreak, of courage and sacrifice and one that will stay with you. With it's twists and turns and it's engaging characters, this is a must read! I can not wait for book 2!!

The narrator Julia Knippen was fantastic. She portrayed both MCs perfectly and brought across their heartache and grief. She really invested her all into the characters and it shows! I will definitely check out more narrated by her.

*I received a copy of this for review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

Would you listen to Shadow Witch Rising again? Why?

I think so, I loved flowed easily and I was drawn to Sophie,,,,I really like Witches!

What did you like best about this story?

The witch aspects, and the love story....Sophie has a good heart....

Have you listened to any of Julia Knippen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I thought she sounded familiar, so I checked...and yes I have....and I loved that story too...She is awesome!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

This would make a great movie...

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

Sophie is a good witch, she lives on a nice little farm she inherited and is happy for the most part....Calder was Sophie's childhood love and he just so happens o move in across the way from Sophie...Calder is a shifter....The town they live in is full of shifters and such. Well Sophie is unfortunate enough to have a lien on her land and it is auctioned...Calder buys it and with ulterior motives....his family is cursed, and was cursed by Sophie's bloodline many years ago...he holds her land over her head to get her to break this curse... but he loves her...Sophie also has been being stalked for many years by a dark witch...and is in a very dangerous situation....but will she have to give in to save the man she loves? GREAT STORY!!! I can wait till book 2! I highly recommend, well worth your time and a credit!

Thank you Audiobookblast(dot)com
