From an editorial review of As Darker Grow the Shadows:
“I loved this book! As Darker Grow the Shadows is truly original in its depiction of the French Resistance—its love stories, its battle scenes, its characters, and its settings never veer into the melodramatic, overdone, or derivative. The characters feel very real—conflicted, damaged, imperfect, and yet they soldier on.”
“This is Mj Roe’s best work yet. The time period suits her writing well and there’s an increased focus on maintaining suspense throughout. Nicely done. “
“Wonderful book – I could not put it down so read in record time! Loved the two preceding books written by MJ Roe as well!”
“An easy to read story exciting believable about the resistance drawing in the twists of a family’s feud very enjoyable.”
