Secrets of Shadow Hill Book 1&2 Review

Secrets of Shadow Hill: Book 1 (Always and Forever)
Secrets of Shadow Hill: Book 2 (Prophecy)
S.P. Cervantes
Reviewed by ~Alice~

Book 1:  Twin sisters Ava and Hannah were ripped from their peaceful seeming lives into a whirlwind of attacks and war only to learn the real truth about their existence.

Nothing was as it seemed anymore and may never be again. They had already lost their father in childhood now they have to cope with their mother’s kidnapping as they watch those sworn to protect them risk their lives.
Book 2:   Ava Fox has spent the past year acclimating to her new life as a wizard of Shadow Hill. Over the past year, her connection with Dalton has only grown stronger. They share a bond she has never known and can't explain.

The danger is still there, even after the Sabatino coven was defeated, and Ava's future is anything but sure. Her powerful relationship with Dalton continues to make others wonder about the Prophecy, and their place in it. Time and again Ava's loyalty and strength will be put to the test as she fights for those she loves. There are many more secrets of Shadow Hill that will be revealed in The Prophecy.
**REVIEW**:  I was given both books in exchange for my honest review.
Book 1: This book has some serious potential.  I haven’t read anything wizard related in quite awhile, so this was like a breath of fresh air for me.  I enjoyed the overall storyline and personality of the characters.  The author did a great job with descriptive writing!  I loved the magic and fight scenes.  I did have an issue with grammatical errors, including missing and/or repetitive words.  Also, some of the sentences were choppy and could use a bit of work to make them flow more smoothly.  Definitely worth the read!!!
Book 2:  I loved this one more than the first!  Fantastic plot, full of action and adventure. The characters seem to have matured from the previous book so that was nice.  Same beautiful descriptive writing, but it caught my attention more than the first book did.  The sentences are less choppy, but grammatical issues like the use of repetitive words is still a problem.  I can't wait to read more work from this author!
