Pawn by Sophie Davis (Shadow Fate #1) Review

Pawn by Sophie Davis is the second book by Sophie Davis that I’ve read but it’s the first that I’ve finished! I have this awful habit (..not sure if it’s really a bad habit to be honest..) of starting a new book and then getting a few chapters in and seeing a recommendation for another new book..and then starting that one too. And so on and so on. Think..Doug from Up – “SQUIRREL!” – Yeah that’s me with books.

Well after finishing this book, I’ll be pushing all the others to the side so I can dive into more of Sophie Davis’ work because Pawn was really that good. I started reading it at night (which is pretty usual for me) but whoaa nelly I got chills while reading the opening chapter! My hands were fidgeting nervously and I was biting my lip because I didn’t know what was going to happen.


Not that it matters too much, but I didn’t read the synopsis for this book so I literally had NO idea what it was about. If you can go into this book that way too, I would suggest it. I don’t know why but I just found it that much more mysterious!


“You may get a second chance at life, but that doesn’t mean it’s yours to keep…”


I really loved the dreams/nightmares and the back and forth between the characters. Honestly, I didn’t know what was going to happen next. I have the tendency of sort of figuring things out while reading. I always try to NOT figure things out but sometimes I can’t help it. Pawn definitely had me reading and reading and so enthralled that I wasn’t able to just think about the story. I remember a couple times when I thought to myself “Oh no, he’s not going to be there” but that was as far as I got.
Surprisingly, I didn’t see anything coming – in the best way possible! I am SUPER excited for the next book titled Sacrifice which is now available for pre-order and releases NEXT month! November 18th to be exact. So holy smokes, it’s so close!
