Disclaimer: I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Natalie Johanson. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
This was another great addition to the YA Fantasy genre. I like that I get a spy type of vibe from Rose, and she is going to be one of those characters that I’ll find intriguing and fun to follow around. I really liked the dark vibe for this, and how Rose was trying to escape her past. It’s always fun to have our main characters running away from something, and then finding out that they are going to have to deal with it even if they didn’t want to.
I hear that the second book is coming out in a few days, and I’m curious to see how the story continues.

Rose Trewin is running from her past. She would run from her magic too, if she could, but her ability to move through shadows like a wraith isn’t going anywhere. She hopes for a simple life, forgotten and unknown. When a promise to take a message to the king turns deadly, Rose must decide what matters more: disappearing into the night or the fate of her country.
She soon finds herself at the center of a conspiracy and political intrigue. Relying on her skills as a spy, Rose must seek out the center of the plot. However, when her magic begins to change and new, unknown creatures are emerging from the shadows, she quickly realizes more is at stake.
Long dead evils are returning
Forgotten magics are awakening
And Rose must face her past to accept her future
Natalie studied at Westminster College with a degree in English with a Creative Writing Emphasis before deciding to go after her dream to work in law enforcement.
Before that, Natalie worked as an editor on her high school literary magazine, Euphony and had several short pieces published in it.
Natalie spent the better part of a decade writing, rewriting, abandoning, and fighting through Shadow’s Voice. It all started with reading a book that didn’t end the way she thought it should. So, Natalie went about writing a book with an ending she wanted. Thus Shadow’s Voice was born. What started off as something just for Natalie to read and write in her spare time quickly became a full blown novel she wanted to share with everyone
