Jenelle becomes the leader of the Northerners after her father is killed by Famere. These two very intelligent women are the main pivot of the story, each a leader of her people, neither willing to allow the other races of the world to overrun their domains.
There are good books and there are great books, Wyshea Shadows is a great book. It’s too long to read all in one go, but I would have done this if it had been possible. There are male characters in this story, and they play strong roles, but the females are not overshadowed by them. The weaving together of males and females, the different races, magicians and wyshea is skilfully done. This is well crafted with a good flow between the different races and a strong story which is a pleasure to read. Excellent.

My favorite characters were Famere & Jannelle.
Famere because she had so much to overcome. She lost her Dad & Ison during the bonding ceremony of her people & was not able to pledge to Ison. Then she bonded to 2 Shadows (somewhat like wolfs but bigger and worse). She had to learn to take over running her people as the first woman to do it. She had to be very strong.
Jannelle because she was such a kind heart and wanted peace. She had to run her people as well but had no problems to overcome as everyone loved her and she took her father’s place without any issues.
I hated Ison. He was all about power and hiding who he truly was from his people and especially Famere. In the end, he chose power over breathen.
The other characters each had their own place in the story and made Jannelle, Famere, and Ison more of who they were. Gofin and Malley are the perfect matches for the female leaders.
The fighting scene towards the end where all the different allies/enemies came together to fight the main enemies for peace was my favorite part of the book.
These are some of my favorite quotes from the book:
Jannelle “Would you feel honor in killing an enemy who is making himself vulnerable to save his riding beast?”
Sparks “I’ve never seen the sky open up. It took my breath away.”
Profetess “Seek peace, Famere. I’ve suffered many years for helping you. Honor the light of the meadow.”
Famere “Because I am of two shadows”
I decided to read this book as a favor to Karen at the Baroness’ Book Trove. Once I received the book & saw the picture I realized that had I not had the plot read to me to make me interested, I would never have given it a second glance. Apparently, I do judge a book by its cover. I am glad I read it through as it is a good book. I give it 3.5 stars.

Mr. Saign has done remarkably well in his endeavor into epic fantasy. I definitely look forward to reading the next book in the series whenever it is released!
Well written with good dialogue and action/description that complemented each other well. Good character development and a satisfactory ending which tied most of the plot points up nicely.
The only negative is that Wyshea Shadows was very military, which I struggled with but this is due to my personal preference and not a reflection on the writing. I am unsure if I would read the next instalment in the series due to this, but I would definitely like to read more by Geoffrey Saign.
