He's also the sexiest thing she's ever seen. Together, t...

    4.5 stars***I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review***Annette Marie has done it againEven in the middle of major slump, I utterly DEVOURED this book. And believe me, when I'm slumping so hard that I'm watching 20 episodes of anime a day (I LOVE YOU NATSU)...that's saying something. The Shadow Weave is a direct sequel to the first book, The Night Realm. I didn't reread The Night Realm before starting The Shadow Weave, but there was a b...

    4.5 StarsReview:*I received an ecopy of this book from the author. This has not influenced my review.*This book was so good. I loved it. So I'm just gonna jump right into all the things I loved about it!I loved Clio. She was focused on their goal and smart and always trying to figure out what to do. She understood that they were in a life-or-death situation and therefore she would have to be ok with things she might not be ok with otherwise. But ...

    **Warning**This book is extraordinarily addictive. It can cause failure to participate in many real life events and apathy towards anything outside of the book's world.I received an eARC of this book from the publisher. This has not impacted my opinion or review in any wayIf ever there was an under hyped and under celebrated author, it's Annette Marie. Her books are ALWAYS a win for me - not a single one in publication has let me down to this dat...

    3.5 stars.I don't think I could ever not like the books in this series because any chance to revisit Lyre and his enigmatic backstory makes me all ecstatic. Ecstatic, but also feeling ominous... Clio's noticeable absence in the Steel & Stone series suggests that something terrible will inevitably befall her, and I can't imagine how Lyre will feel when he's in denial about his feelings.It was only in the last 100 pages or so that the plot actually...

    you can find my review here as well! & my review for book one here!----Give it up for my final book of 2017! What a way to end--the anticipated sequel from one of my favourite authors.The Shadow Weave proved to be more than a promising sequel. It loved up to all of Marie's other work and included her signature action-packed fight scenes and swoony kisses. It's a sequel that will not disappoint you, especially if you adored The Night Realm.It pick...

    Gah! I know I say this in every review for this author but I LOVE her books!The world building is brilliant and drags me in every time! I was especially glad to see some of the characters from the Steel & Stone series. One thing that’s been in the back of my head whilst reading both The Night Realm and The Shadow Weave is what happens? If you’ve read the Steel & Stone series, you know that’s it’s set 5 years after this series takes place....

    It. Was. So. Good. Seriously! I'm not a huge fan of books going backwards. This series takes place before Steel and Stone and I've already read S&S. Book 1 was good but there was a lot of story building. This book, however, was steady action and character building. I fell in love with Lyre and Clio. Can't wait to see what happens next!!!!! A must read!

    Wow, that was a roller coaster of emotions. Before I start with this wonder of a book can I just say how ABSOLUTELY STOKED I am about ahving PIPER and ASH appear???? Granted, Ash has more of a role, which is completely understandable and I am totally in for because I want to know his backstory too. But having Piper just appear, at least for a couple of pages like ??? *be still my beating heart or you will burst out of my damn chest* (view spoiler...

    Oh. My. God. I finished The Shadow Weave in only a day. A DAY?! Responsibilities, what's that? Oh, man, this was another page-turning masterpiece. Lyre is my favorite male character ever (sorry Rhys). And Clio, just wow. In the Night Realm it was hinted she was badass, but we mostly saw her clumsy and somewhat naive side. In the Shadow Weave however, we see her as this insanely badass, smart and loyal girl. I love her.AND THE WORLD BUILDING. I ME...

    I’m just loving this series. Annette Marie’s writing is as ever thoughtful and engaging. I really liked the settings in this particular book. Along with the new daemons introduced, they felt particularly bustling, exotic and exciting. Without question though the stars of the show are Clio and Lyre. They’re fast becoming some of my favourite characters. All too often in books of this genre you find the feisty heroine with kick ass moves pair...

    Finished the book in 1 day. All I can say is WOW. Seriously, I'm pretty speechless. (I'm never speechless.) She's definitely done it again. Annette Marie is most definitely a genius. Lyre and Clio are so bittersweet in such dire situations it's endearing. Lyre came SO close to becoming my favourite, but then our very favourite Draconian assassin swooped in and reminded me of my REAL love. 😂But seriously, would recommend these books to everyone...

    I’d forgotten how addictive this series was! Right from the start, I was pulled into the action, with Lyre and Clio on the run from Hades reapers. It was fast-paced, there were lots of awesome fight scenes, and even more cute scenes between Lyre and Clio. Clio’s history was revealed more, like I’d hoped. Plus, some slightly younger Steel and Stone characters popped in, which made me very, very happy.The ending left me hungry for more. It wa...

    This book had me hooked from the first page. It was action packed and just enough romance that had me glued to my kindle. Both Clio and Lyre are going through major character changes in this book and they are starting to figure out that they are stronger than their families led them to believe. And Ash. I know he isn't a main character in this series but I'm just stinking happy that he randomly pops up. I can't wait to see how Lyre, Clio, and Ash...

    *I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review!*Just stick a fork in me, I'm done!This book obliterated my every sense. I am now a disperse mass of molecules floating in the ether. And I'm not even exaggerating.I can't even find the words to express how good this book was. I keep trying to make my brain work and all I get is mush.The complexity of Lyre's personality is out of this world. When I first met him in t...

    4.5, but I’m rounding up because I like this series so much!Plot: While traveling to the Overworld to recover Lyre’s KLOC, Clio and Lyre fight reapers, assassins, and their attraction to each other. Characters:In the first book, I liked Clio, but now I like her even more. She’s still a little naïve, especially when it comes to Bastian, but she’s smart and resourceful and incredibly brave. Lyre’s probably one of my favorite young adult ...

    I'm even more convinced after reading this one that any readers new to this world should read this series first, then the steel and stone series. You learn so much more about the worlds and how they work together and magic. There's some great cameos by both Ash AND Piper in this book.I really like how this book is helping to build the Ash + Lyre friendship. We're getting a good glimpse into why Ash is the way he is (in Steel & Stone), even though...

    5 Stars!Absolutely ah-mazing!!!! This book has completely destroyed me emotionally. I thought that The Night Realm was incredible, but The Shadow Weaves just takes everything I adore about the first book and makes it even better!!!!!!! This series is wonderful, this author is extremely talented and I will continue recommending, mentioning, cajoling, encouraging and if need be, pushing these books onto every reader I meet. Clio is once again a fie...

    SteamyLyre and Clio continue to protect each other and try to retreive the KLOC. Their attraction continues to increase as well but falling for an incubus is not safe for such a young heart and Lyre doesn't trust himself. For good reason. Clio is horribly naive but her innocence is slowly being replaced with the truth. It is heartbreaking, but also good since she isn't alone as she comes face to face with grief and betrayal. I liked the steamy en...

    I can't tell you enough how much I love this book and entire series! Can the second book possibly be better than the first book?! You bet! The book is fast paced from start to finish. I love that Annette incorporated past characters from other series in this book as well. The fight scenes are intense and descriptive without being too much. Annette once again tells a beautifully descriptive story with amazing, kick-ass characters. I really love ho...

    Entertaining except during Lyre and Clio's journey to the Overworld. That part was a little too long (really really little) but overall The Shadow Weave did not fail me : ) Especially Ash's part (sigh)

    As always Annette Marie delivers a nail biting, action packed, heart thumping adventure of massive scope and vivid imagination. How on earth does she manage to put out some of the best stories in existence? Yes, I mean in existence in my opinion. As ever in my top favourites. Lyre and Clio continue their journey right where we left off after their dramatic escape from The Chysalis and Ashpodel, and for those of you that have read the Steel and St...

    A spellbinding sequel to another spectacular trilogy. The Shadow Weave is certainly that and more. I never tire of saying this but no one does world building like Annette Marie. Straight into action from The Night Realm and what we get is a mesmerising tale spun with webs of gold. Clio and Lyre are back into the thick of things and now we know the depth of betrayal they have to circumvent. Clio's strength is growing and in this sequel she is show...

    The Shadow Weave was fantastic. It is the second book in the Spell Weaver trilogy, and my favorite book of the series thus far.The Shadow Weave picks up pretty much where the previous book. (The Night Realm) ends. Lyre and Clio are on Earth and on the run, hiding from Hades assassins and trying to find a way to get to the Overworld to follow Eryx and get back the spell he stole.I felt like I got to know Lyre and Clio much better in this book.

    Wow! #bookhangover #totallydead #mypoorpoorheart Another fantastic book by Annette! I could not put it down! I had to find out what happened! My heart is literally bleeding for both of these characters! I love them both sooooooo much! Thank you Annette for writing a fantastic book and taking us back to the world of daemons and magic! 🖤

    Well, I just realized that this was my ELEVENTH Annette Marie book which I read AND absolutely adored. I think it's definitely safe to call her my favorite author by now. I just can't quite believe she isn't more known and loved because these wonderful stories deserve so much recognition. Luckily, I am here and ready to rave about all things Annette Marie, but more specifically in this review, The Shadow Weave.The Shadow Weave is the sequel to Th...

    I received The Shadow Weave by Annette Marie as an eARC (it's released on January 12) for my honest review and let me tell you, I could not get enough of it!! I finished it in record time! Many responsibilities were ignored and I definitely stayed up way past my bedtime, but it was worth it!The Shadow Weave is the second book in the Spell Weaver series and the first book is The Night Realm. I loved The Night Realm because it was such a fun read...

    I loved the Steel & Stone series, and Annette Marie’s Spell Weaver series is just as great. I think I liked Book#2 even more than Book#1 because the ending was really great even if it again leaves you seriously cliffhanging!Annette has such a great skill to build worlds and make the setting believable. I love how she created the “spell weaver profession”, and how she describes the different castes and worlds. Everything she writes is so nat...
