The Shattered Vigil by Patrick W. Carr

★★★★★
Goodreads | Amazon
Award-winner Carr delivers latest in fantasy saga.

Victory over the dark forces during the feast of Bas-solas should have guaranteed safety for the continent. Instead, Willet and the rest of the Vigil discover they've been outsmarted by those seeking to unleash the evil that inhabits the Darkwater. Jorgen, the member of the Vigil assigned to Frayel, has gone missing, and new attacks have struck at the six kingdoms' ability to defend themselves. 

Just when the Vigil thought they had quenched the menace from their enemy in Collum, a new threat emerges: assassins hunting the Vigil, men and women who cannot be seen until it's too late. The orders of the church and the rulers of the kingdoms, fearing the loss of the Vigil's members altogether, have decided to take them into protective custody to safeguard their gift. On Pellin's orders, the Vigil scatters, leaving Willet to be taken prisoner by the church in Bunard. 

In the midst of this, Willet learns of the murder of an obscure nobleman's daughter by one of the unseen assassins. Now he must escape his imprisonment and brave the wrath of the church to find the killer in order to turn back this latest threat to the northern continent.

I loved reading The Shock of Night, Patrick W. Carr’s first book in the Darkwater Saga, and I’m so glad this second book, The Shattered Vigil, did not disappoint. Carr carries readers back into his intriguing fantasy world as Willet Dura once again faces mysterious circumstances, full of danger and threats. Through it all, he has plenty of questions and feelings to confront, and the suspense of the story pulled at me page after page until the end. (Still, there, I couldn’t help but crave another book, wondering what would come next.) Needless to say, I enjoyed my time reading The Shattered Vigil and recommend it to readers of fantasy—but be sure to start at the beginning of the series to best understand the storyline. 

Thanks to Bethany House, I received a copy of The Shattered Vigil and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
