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