Forbidden Magic. Shadowy Intrigue. Heart-Pounding Action. Slow-Burn Romance.

Eira is now a champion of the Solaris Empire. She's off to a land she's only dreamed about. But a nightmare awaits her.

Her sworn enemy has escaped. His allies are powerful and deadly. And Eira finds herself tangled in the dangerous web of the undercity of Risen where the mysterious Court of Shadows and lethal Pillars battle for the fate of the kingdom.

But vengeance has a price. When Eira is captured by her enemies, it's not only her life, but the lives of her friends, and the man she loves most, at stake. The woman she was won't be enough to turn the tides churning against her from long before she was born. She'll have to become something more. She'll have to love deeper and fight fiercer than ever before.

The only way to kill a legendary champion, will be to become one herself.

Experience Eira's adventure in the A Trial of Sorcerers series by USA Today bestselling author Elise Kova today, for readers who enjoy young adult, epic fantasy, filled with sorcery, deep friendships, forbidden romance, and tales of faraway lands.

A Hunt of Shadows takes place after the events of A Trial of Sorcerers. Readers should begin with A Trial of Sorcerers before reading A Hunt of Shadows.


A Hunt for Shadows brings us to Meru, the hosting land for the competition. In this second book, Eira spends most of it playing detective for the Court of Shadows, a political group out to battle the pillars trying to bring about the revival of a long-dead secret. There is not a lot of focus on the actual competition as in this book they spend time training and getting to know the other competitors. I would have liked to see the competition start, but book three is in the wings, and that’s when I am sure we get some perfect edge-of-your-seat action. This second book is more a builder to get some key facts and some background uncovered before the actual battles come to light, at least I think so anyway. The slow-burn romance between Eira and the forbidden prince is heart-wrenching and so touching. I thoroughly enjoyed this second book, even if we did not get to the competition yet.
