"A Sorcery of Shadows: The Westwood Witches 2" by Sarah Northwood - IHIBRP 5-Star Book Review

Harry Potter Fans Will Love This Dark & Bewitching Urban Fantasy!

Overview: Aero is frantic with worry for her mum and aunt since they disappeared searching for the Shadow Creatures in an alternate realm. Now, Aero must search that Realm to find her loved ones and deal with the impending darkness, but the Shadow Creatures’ malevolent quest is about to set in motion events that could lead to the destruction of everything the young witch holds dear.

Author Sarah Northwood conjures up a world quite similar in depth and dimension to that of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter with her dark and bewitching urban fantasy, “A Sorcery of Shadows”. Through the eyes of her main character, a 17-year-old witch named Aero Westwood, Northwood orchestrates a world brimming with fantastic creatures, family dynasties at war, and danger beyond imagination as her young witch assumes a great responsibility entrusted to her by her grandmother to protect both the magical realm and the world of humans from the threat of annihilation by the Shadow Creatures—beings who have “no worry about death, but consequently [do] not understand what it [is] to live.”

While Realworlders—humans who feel entitled to be the sole species ruling a world untainted by “freaks of nature”—and Shadow Creatures battle for control of the planet, Aero penetrates the Shadow Realm and carries on a desperate search for her abducted mother and aunt before an all-out war breaks out and all is lost. As in the first chapter of the series, trust is a main issue in that Aero learns the hard way that supposed friends and enemies are not always who and what they seem.

In a way, “A Sorcery of Shadows” is a coming-of-age tale in that the author presents her main character with many obstacles that either encourage or dissuade her from her goal, but continuously lead her into making decisions that will build her strength, courage, and fortitude as she prepares for an epic showdown with the head of the Shadow Creatures.

“A Sorcery of Shadows” is the second chapter in Author Northwood’s Westwood Witches Series. Like her first novel in this series, “The Westwood Witches: A Secret Discovered”, Northwood holds true to family values, inner strength, and compassion as she guides readers through a wondrous but dangerous world of magical folk and creatures on the brink of an epic battle with humanity and each other. I highly recommend this story for readers who love dark fantasy and magical realism, ages 13 and up.

Congratulations to the author on this award-winning story! This novel will be permanently featured on my website at under IHIBRP 5 Star Recommended Reads!
