The Shadow Rises (Witch-Hunter #1)
Marsden creates a light-hearted feel to her novel, while at the same time enticing an air of mystery and suspense.
Ms Marsden has created an intriguing novel, with the first book setting up a world of mythology that I absolutely loved. You are hooked to the story, with a great protagonist, and a wonderful world to play in.

The plot left me guessing at every turn and when Marsden revealed a plot twist ace up her sleeve, my jaw dropped. I was literally staring at the text going, “No way. NO WAY! Did she really just go there?”
There are rarely any books, in my experience, that makes you say “oh this is so going to be my favorite” from mere three sentences of its opening chapter and this book was one of it.
I read the three books in the Witch-Hunter series back to back.
The Shadow Rises drew me in after the first few pages and wouldn't let go so I moved straight onto The Shadow Reigns, quickly followed by The Shadow Falls.
These books now make up one of my favourite trilogies!
The Lost Soul (Enchena #1)
I really enjoyed the author's writing style too. It has a clear-cut elegance that is maddeningly readable. I easily attained the holy grail of states - to forget I was reading. Marsden's descriptive powers are strong; and she evoked landscapes, moods, and action scenes with seemingly little effort.
