The hotly-anticipated sequel to the Bangzo Book of the Year 2013, The Morrow Secrets, has been released in hardback, as of March 27th!
The Shadow of the Swarm is the second instalment of Susan McNally’s spooky young adult fantasy series, The Morrow Secrets, and is the follow-up to the first book of the same name.
The image of the magnificently dark castle, Hellstone Tors, dominates the cover. Perched precariously on the edge of the most jagged rock face I have ever seen, in waters far too green to be inviting. Aptly, the building casts a looming shadow across the landscape, and judging by the deathly orange glow of the sky, is caused by the biggest, most fiery inferno of a Sun known to man (or girl). It suggests something very dangerous indeed is just over the horizon. Looming…
Picking up from where Book One left off, in Hellstone Tors, with the vulnerable Tallitha, teenage heiress to the Morrow family, trapped in the evil clutches of The Morrow Swarm. Led there by nothing but her own sense of intrigue, and her passion for adventure, she finds herself enveloped in a whole world of mystery, lies and deceit – with supposedly no turning back.
Having travelled all this way, and having come up against Murk-Mowl, Black Hounds and Groats in the Out-of-the-Way Mountains and Startling Caves, she survived relatively unscathed, and has walked straight in to the biggest danger of all, her own family.
The Shadow of the Swarm will follow Tallitha’s struggle onward as she tries to untangle herself from the web of evil the Morrow Swarm have spun for her. Will she every make it out alive, will she ever see home again? But if this is the truth of her family, can she truly call anywhere home?
If this sounds like just the sort of story you want to sink your teeth into, then you can pick up The Shadow of the Swarm on Amazon.
