It's here! It’s like . . . a real book . . . like you can search it on Amazon . . . and there it is.
Death can die as easily as any other man.
Cedra has kept her sister safe for years. None of that changes just because Pethra got herself kidnapped by Death himself.
Claiming the questionable aid of Death’s weary older brother, the Shadowkeeper, Cedra forces her way through mist and shadows in pursuit of her hapless
sister. But Death wants much more than he has revealed.
A wish that will splinter her and Pethra’s world no matter what she chooses: death, or a chain.
Loosely inspired by the stories of Hades and Persephone and Castor and Pollux, Shadowkeeper will sweep you into a world of wavering mists, shadowy passages, and the love of two siblings fastening them with ties stronger than Death himself.
About Hope Ann: Hope Ann uses chocolate to bribe a wide ring of spies, from the realm leapers of Aslaria to the double agents of Elkbend, for their stories. Based in Indiana, she is the self-published author of the Legends of Light series, personal writing coach, and the Communications Coordinator for Story Embers. You can find out more about her at authorhopeann.com.
I was very excited to get to read Shadowkeeper as part of an ARC, and I’m excited to share it with all of you. You can read my review below (or check it out on Amazon, assuming Amazon didn’t do anything goofy and delete it or something).
Shadowkeeper is worth trying.
Shadowkeeper is about two sisters fighting death.
No, really. It’s about two sisters fighting death.
Cedra’s younger sister Pethra is kidnapped by Death, and Cedra teams up with Death’s older brother Shadowkeeper to save her. Only Death has an agenda of his own—trying to bring his sister back from a spot between life and death where she is trapped.
So, what do you need to know about Shadowkeeper? I narrowed it down to four:
However, as an amateur realm-jumper on a borrowed dragon, I had a bit of dragon lag throughout this book. I was slightly confused as to how the world worked. I had trouble catching up with the world and the plot at the same time. Cedra talking to her dual personality in her head got awkward and confusing, too. I don’t think this is the book’s fault, I just think it was due to my inexperience with dragons.
So, my take. If you don’t normally read fantasy, don’t normally read mythology, or have never read any of Hope’s books, I would recommend starting with her Legends of Light books first. By the time you come back to Shadowkeeper, you’ll have a handle on her writing style. Then, find a friend who knows fantasy, get something with caffeine, make sure your dragon knows and understands speed limits, and enjoy Shadowkeeper.
If you adore fantasy and mythology, go ahead! Have a blast.
In short, whoever you are—give it a try. I highly doubt you will be disappointed.
SO . . . please tell me you want to read it. If you do, hop over to this link on Amazon. You can buy it there, and also track down her other books, too. Then, if you don’t mind, post a review on Amazon of Shadowkeeper (or Goodreads if you do that type of thing).
