BOOK TOUR PROMO & GIVEAWAY: House of Shadows by Rachel Neumeier

House of Shadows

by Rachel Neumeier

Book Description

Orphaned, two sisters are left to find their own fortunes.

Sweet and proper, Karah’s future seems secure at a glamorous Flower House. She could be pampered for the rest of her life… if she agrees to play their game.

Nemienne, neither sweet nor proper, has fewer choices. Left with no alternative, she accepts a mysterious mage’s offer of an apprenticeship. Agreeing means a home and survival, but can Nemienne trust the mage?

With the arrival of a foreign bard into the quiet city, dangerous secrets are unearthed, and both sisters find themselves at the center of a plot that threatens not only to upset their newly found lives, but also to destroy their kingdom.

What Rachel says about the book

House of Shadows is in a different world from the Griffin trilogy. It’s another adult fantasy. I enjoyed writing it, although it was complicated in some ways. I mean, I started to try to write a story three times with three different main characters, couldn’t choose which I liked best, and wound up keeping them all and weaving them together. The plot arose simply from a desire to keep all the main characters and the need to wrap a coherent story around them all. It all worked beautifully in the end, but it wasn’t easy.

Isn’t that cover lovely?

House of Shadows is self-contained, but I have a sequel in my head, so we’ll see.


About the Author

Rachel Neumeier started writing fiction to relax when she was a graduate student and needed a hobby unrelated to her research. Prior to selling her first fantasy novel, she had published only a few articles in venues such as The American Journal of Botany. However, finding that her interests did not lie in research, Rachel left academia and began to let her hobbies take over her life instead.

She now raises and shows dogs, gardens, cooks, and occasionally finds time to read. She works part-time for a tutoring program, though she tutors far more students in Math and Chemistry than in English Composition.

    been over since we have been blessed with the peeler.
    You may wonder what they can offer you that a regular oven doesn’t have, and that would
    be a greater precision in what you’re cooking, meaning no failed recipes or undercooked food.
    Toaster ovens, which can cook anything from toast to whole chickens, reduce
    the use of oil compared to a fryer resulting to a healthier meal.
