  • An incredible good versus evil fantasy novel!

    This is part of a “true” series. For the story to make sense you need to read the first book before starting this one. I thoroughly enjoyed returning to the fantasy land that this author has crafted. The characters are so well developed and presented that I connected with them and felt their frustration as they were trying to sort out the mystery of where the danger was coming from. The plot was filled with a lot of twists and turns that really made me focus my attention on the story to follow what was going on. This is a great book to get lost in and lose track of time. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher. I have chosen to write this review to express my personal opinion.

  • Riveting

    Could not put this allegory down. In the vein of Narnia, for young adults and adults. The Vigil discovers that they’ve been outsmarted by the evil in the Darkwater. There is a new threat to the Vigil – assassins who cannot be seen – except by children! In order to protect them, the church decides to take them into protective custody. Pellin orders the Vigil to scatter, except Willet, who is taken prisoner by the church in Bunard. Meanwhile, Willet finds out about a murder, which is linked to the latest threat to the northern continent. He escapes his imprisonment, and searches for the killer.

  • Christian Fantasy Mystery

    The Shattered Vigil is the second book in the Darkwater Series by Patrick W Carr. It is an epic fantasy novel, for adults, from a Christian perspective. Willet, and the rest of the people in the Vigil, have the ability to see all of a person’s memories with a single touch. Unfortunately, the Vigil’s enemies were not vanquished as was thought but are striking back harder than before. The Shattered Vigil was too dark for me. There is so much darkness in the human soul, and Willet has the ability to see all of it. Subsequently, this book was also very dark, darker than most Christian fantasy novels. Death, betrayal, an evil that seeped into people’s souls from exposure to the Darkwater Forest — all of it was thoroughly present in this novel. Now, Willet and others fought the evil, and so there was good in their world filled with evil. But still, the evil seemed to permeate the book via a dark tone. The good things about the book were: unique characters, a complex plot, a well-developed world, deep questions and soul-searching, engaging writing, and a fantastic cover. I did love Patrick Carr’s other series, the Staff and the Sword. I recommend it to fans of dark-ish fantasy with a Christian perspective. Perhaps fans of Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti. I received a complementary copy of this book. All opinions are my own, and I am not obligated to provide a positive review.
