For centuries, Phoebe Whelan’s family of witches and mages has guarded the Book of Sindal, a tome filled with spells so evil it could destroy the world. After their parents’ death six years ago, it’s up to Phoebe and her older and younger sisters – Rowan and Celeste – to guard the book with their magic and their supernaturally fortified land. But Celeste’s expression magic is wild and untamed, and without their mother’s calming influence, Celeste is slowly going mad.

When the book – and Celeste – go missing, the Valarian Small Council believes Celeste stole the deadly book of spells. When they assign Captain Brandon Cassidy, the head of the Magical Protective Force and Phoebe’s former high school crush, to look for the book, and things get a whole lot more complicated.

Soon it becomes apparent a dark force has taken the book, which will only open with the blood of all three Whelans. The Dark Set has the strongest sister, now it needs the blood of the other two. Brandon’s mission quickly changes to include her protection, but Phoebe’s goal has remained the same – find the book and her sister, prove Celeste’s innocence, and let nothing get in her way, including her reawakened feelings for the man at her side.

Cait Sidhe’s Thoughts

Descended from Shadows brings us a new world of witches and magic. Phoebe and her sisters have been tasked with protecting the world from the magic inscribed within the Book of Sindal, but when her sister Celeste and the book go missing, the worst is feared.  When her high school crush turned mage is assigned to protect the sisters and help them find the book, another kind of spell happens!

I loved the magic created in this world. Phoebe can reach out to the bodies of witches and mages who’d lived and died generations before her and “borrow” their powers as long as they share DNA. This means almost an unlimited carousel of power, provided that she is close enough to connect with her ancestor. While Phoebe and Celeste have different kinds of magic, they each have been taught to use their strengths.

There’s no lack of action here either. It only takes a chapter or two before the sparks start flying…in more ways than one. While I’m not so sure that we should trust the devastatingly handsome Brandon, but there’s no denying the heat and history between him and Phoebe. She is such a strong-willed resolute character and I loved her journey. She and her sisters are reminiscent of  “the power of three” if you know what I mean! If you loved Charmed, then you’ll love Descended from Shadows. Mystery, suspense, adventure, and a sexy mage all wrapped up in a story with heaps of history and a fantastically constructed magical world — what more can you ask for?

About the Author:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the area until she was nineteen. Then she became a nomadic gypsy, living in five cities, four states and ten houses over the course of ten years before she moved back to her roots. She speaks English and smattering of Spanish and Chinese which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period. Her hobbies include witty Facebook comments (in own her mind) and dancing in her kitchen with her children. (Quite badly if you believe her offspring.) Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to perform many unspeakable tasks. She has six children and hasn’t lost her sanity. Or so she leads you to believe.
