Sadly, my blog tour is over! But it was so much fun!
In case you missed any of my promo posts, you can read them here:
And now, the grand wrap-up...pull quotes from all of my wonderful reviews!! The Shadow Soul was definitely a hit with the bloggers, and I cannot be more excited about that!
"One word to describe this book: intense! Everything from the battles, to the secrets, to the descriptions of the characters and scenery, are all incredibly intense. This book had me biting my nails, stomach tided in knots, and completely entranced til the last word. The synopsis hints at a story full of adventure, danger, and secrets. That's exactly what this book delivers, along with a good dose of humor, breathtaking descriptions, and wonderful characters."
"Throughout the story, the stakes were always raised. There was no part that lagged while Davis was telling her story of far off lands, and the drama continued to the very end...To those readers who like fantasy and adventure, or to those who tried to read "A Song of Ice and Fire" but couldn't make it through the first chapter without falling asleep – this could be a series for you."
"The Shadow Soul was positively transportive, left me feeling refreshed, and renewed my faith in symbolism, imagery, and the importance of world building and cultural preservation. If you want to be drawn in quickly and immediately feel a heart bond with a girl whose life is entirely unlike yours, read this. If you want to follow the story of a young man you'll want to love and throttle at the same time, read this. If you want to set out on a journey, read this."
"I loved this book! I was drawn into the story with the fantastic and descriptive storytelling told alternatively between Rhen and Jinji!... The political pickings, magical murderers, and shadowy suspense are the real plot stars in this book and the wonderful characterization and world-building adds extra oomph to grab you and keep you in this world."
"I thought this was a fantastic first book in a series. I’m excited to see where this series is going to go, there is definitely a lot of room to build out the series and I think the author is going to do some really interesting stuff with this story. Fantasy fans will not want to miss this book…it’s definitely YA but I think that it would be a fun read for mature fantasy readers as well!"
Normally I don’t get scared easily but this book did freak me out just a little bit!... This was the first book I’ve read from Kaitlyn Davis but I’d definitely read more."
"If you're a fantasy lover, this is a book you will not want to miss out on. The battles and action sequences of the book were astounding!! I felt as if I were a part of the story myself. The images that are distilled into my mind only make me that much more impatient for the second book to get here. "
"The book is full of suspense and mystery with the perfect dusting of magic... This is a great read for all of you YA lovers out there! I cannot wait to find out what happens in the second book!"
"From a writer’s perspective, I have to hand it to Kaitlyn, the effort and imagination that went into the whole world building was amazing...If you miss Game of Thrones pick up this book and get a quick fix before its back on our screens in April."
"With secrets, magic, betrayals, and a powerful enemy, this book was wonderful."
"I loved it. I think Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, Ponyo) should buy the rights and animate the heck out of this story. It’s awesome."
"Kaitlyn Davis has written an interesting story about magic, friendship, mystery and betrayal...I will be reading the second book, because I must know what will happen between Jin and Rhen"
THANK YOU to all of the amazing bloggers who took a chance on my book!! I couldn't have dreamed up better reviews if I tried!
