Awakening Shadows (The Navarre Chronicles, Book 1) by Sydney Hawthorn - A Review & Book Tour


Hello everyone!!

Today I am really excited to share with you my review for Awakening Shadows by Sydney Hawthorn.

 This post is in collaboration with Book of Matches Media (@bookofmatchesmedia) and the author who gifted me an ebook copy if the book.

Awakening Shadows is the first book in The Navarre Chronicles and it is a YA Dark fantasy with mild steam/heat level. It was published in September 2020 by Lilac Daggers Press LLC. 

If you like Throne of Glass, Shadow and Bone, The Starchaser Saga and  Divine Blood by Beck Michaels you will love this book too.


Awakening Shadows is a fantasy romance book that I really enjoyed.
I liked the writing style of the author and the world that she builds around the story. The book has the  perfect amount of adventure and there is also magic and mystery that I really love. I enjoyed the characters and the slow burn romance between Quinn and Joseline. My favourite is Quinn and I also enjoyed the dynamics between Evalyn and Dax. 

I will definitely continue with the series, as the next book Whispering Shadows will be published really soon!

Rating: 4 Stars

Book synopsis:
A Princess. A Warrior. A Slave. A kingdom falling to ruin. And a Queen meant to save them all.

Navarre has been at peace for three hundred years, the prophecies of the promised princess no more than a whispered memory of the past. Sheltered from the world around her, naïve Princess Joseline is no stranger to the responsibility and isolation of being heir. But when an attack on her eighteenth birthday reveals the looming return of the legendary demon king, shattering every protective boundary around her, Joseline is thrown full force into the long-forgotten prophecy and the role she plays in his demise.
Saved from Aeron’s clutches by a secret organization of warriors trained to protect her, Joseline is forced to choose between her curiosity to understand their motives and her duty to her people’s safety. Swept into the impending war threatening her country, Joseline must learn at all costs not only to fight, but to control the ancient magical power awakening within her.
Her life and the lives of her people depend on it.
