Book Review: Shadow of the Wyrm by

About the Book

Shadow of the Wyrm
by Susan Spitale Precht

Description from Goodreads: 

Until unknown relations show up unexpectedly to their summer camp, Torg, Rache, Berr, and Brom were never told that their Dvargen clan was a tiny remnant of a more advanced culture which had been hunted to near extinction by creatures known as the Wyrm. The world that they had expected to inhabit ceases to exist while the rules they had been framed by only serve to maintain the fiction their grandsire had crafted to keep knowledge of the Wyrm away. Left alone to discover the truth of their past, and to define the realities of their present, they are thrust into a dangerous adventure that will ultimately decide their future.


Shadow of the Wyrm is a YA fantasy novel about four teens in a cave-man-like setting who’s existence is threatened by the re-emergence of the Wyrms.

Shadow of the Wyrm was an interesting read. It was easy-to-read, and so younger teen readers would probably enjoy it. The story world was interesting, and the setting the culture reminded me of cavemen. Not many books have a similar setting, and so I enjoyed reading about it from this author’s perspective. The four teens were unique characters who began to learn new things about their people’s pasts and had to decide how to react and what to make of their world as a result. In this way, it was a coming-of-age novel. And I love the cover!

I enjoyed it and recommend it to fans of YA Fantasy.

I received a complementary copy of this book. All opinions are my own, and I am not obligated to provide a positive review.
