My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Carnival of Shadows is the second book in the Firewater Springs series. This book is a page turner and has me looking forward to more! Teagan Blackmore is the local Swamp Witch of Firewater Springs who is still recovering from the murder of her beloved Grandmother when a strange carnival rolls into town.

Leslie Scott really brings her characters to life and makes it easy to feel their emotions. Where they go, you go. It won’t matter if you are into paranormal, romance or mystery, there is something for everyone in this book. I am very much looking forward to another installment of this series.

Her Blackened Rose (The Blackened Series Book 3) by Isra Sravenheart – Review by Sheri Schrader

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Her Blackened Rose is the third book in the Blackened Series by Isra Sravenheart. I highly recommend reading the series in order because the story continues throughout the books. This time the dark Lady Isra is challenged with trust and deception. Whom can she trust? Astrid and Isra are facing issues and then there is a missing man whose family blames Isra for the disappearance. In this book, the stakes are higher and there is more action and suspense to the story. I like how the series has developed and I have become more interested in Lady Isra’s story. Also, there is an interesting development of what constitutes dark and evil. Perceptions change when there is more knowledge.
I look forward to reading the next book in the series and seeing what happens with Lady Isra next.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Her Blackened Heart by Isra Sravenheart is the second book in the Blackened series. I recommend reading the first book before this to enjoy the book fully. The story takes us and gives us insight into the past of Lady Isra. There are battles of light and dark and of mortal and immortal. I really enjoyed the new characters and the development of Lady Isra and Astrid. I also enjoyed the development of the ongoing story and am curious as to what will happen as the series progresses. I look forward to reading the next book in this series soon.

Her Blackened Soul (The Blackened Series Book 1) by Isra Sravenheart – Review by Sheri Schrader

Her Blackened Soul (The Blackened, #1)Her Blackened Soul by Isra Sravenheart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Her Blackened Soul by Isra Sravenheart is the first book in the Blackened Series. Lady Isra is a dark witch and the primary character of this book. I enjoyed the idea of the story from the villain’s point of view. She is a dark character who has taken on powers that limits who can see her. I liked that the story is from a different view and that she is a relatable character despite being bad. The story kept me reading and wanting to know how this would work with Lady Isra and her powers. I am looking forward to reading more in this series soon.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book 2 in the series. I so enjoy immersing myself in this world where there’s witches, demi-demons, ghosts, werewolves, and more.

Teagan is a kick ass witch who is still exploring who she is as a woman, and now add on being the new Swamp Witch, and all that entails. She cares deeply about her renters and local community, and will put herself at risk for their safety. And the sexual tension Teagan experiences will have you panting for more!

I loved how the focus of the book was on the mystery of who the Carnie people are and what do they want, but tinged with romance. The Carnies were alluring in their creepiness, as well as in their capacity to care. I loved the contrast between those ruling the show and those who were just “along for the ride.”

I also enjoyed reading more about supporting characters Shelley, Oliver and Anna, and how those relationships have grown to have formed a community.

I cannot wait to read more featuring Teagan and gang!

Carnival of Shadows (Black Water Magic Book 2) by Leslie Scott – Review by Krista Vaughan

I love a good paranormal story with strong characters and strong bonds between characters. This book has a unique and interesting story of Teagan the new Swamp Witch and her challenges in getting used to new and unfamiliar powers while battling a carnival of demons looking to destroy her town and kill the people. Teagan has a scary ex, and a new love interest that is just as scary. I guess the powerful women go for the dangerous guys? This was really a great escape into a battle between saving the good from evil. Definitely recommend.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Carnival of Shadows by Leslie Scott is the second book in the Black Water Magic series. It should be noted that I did not read the first book, but that did not take anything away from this book. It meshed well and did not make me feel bad for coming into book two. I will be gong back to read book one, if only to get more of a backstory.

Teagan Blackwater is a witch, that much is for sure, but she is so much more. When a paranormal carnival comes to town, Teagan is given a few warning to get out of town. Teagan being the willful independent woman she is, does not heed these warnings. The excitement and story that ensues is one that was not easy to put down.

This book was filled with action, drama and romance. Not to mention all the paranormal that comes. This is a book that will be going on my re-read list for sure.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After Teagan’s grandma dies, she is left with a magical inheritance to work with. Then, the carnival comes to Firewater Springs, FL, and, with it, a whole host of awesome, paranormal characters. This is the second book in the Blackwater Magic Book series, and I admit to not having read the first one beforehand. That being said, it was still super easy to fall into the pages and get wrapped up in Teagan’s story and the stories of her friends, specifically Oliver. I had no problems keeping up with the story and enjoyed all aspects despite not having read book number one. This is a quick read, but it is not lacking in imagination and creativeness. I took in this book quickly and need to get my hands on the first book in the series. I give Carnival of Shadows by Leslie Scott 4 out 5 stars.
