“Shaylynn Rose made her fantasy world so vivid and three dimensional, that it was a page-turner, from the first page until the last.” – Curve Magazine

A moving story of loss, despair, friendship and hope, Banshee’s Vengeance by Shaylynn Rose is the second book in the Tales Y’Myran series, set in a high fantasy world of elves and beasts, swords and sorcery, and epic journeys both larger-than-life and intensely personal. The book is also notable in its matter-of-fact embrace of diversity – with a protagonist who is both a person of color and a lesbian – that does not sacrifice masterful fantasy world building and adventure.

More about Banshee’s Vengeance:

Honor. It was torn from Azhani’s grasp by the sorcerer whose hatred of her family is decades old.

Love. Ylera, Azhani’s beloved, was murdered, her death no more than one callous act in a chain meant to put a noose around Azhani’s neck.

Once, not long ago, Azhani had been hopeless, lost, and without any desire for a future, but now, the rimerbeasts have come, and she is needed. Can she put aside her yearning for justice and face this ancient menace as honor demands, or will the bonds of love lost hurl her into a mire of death and revenge?

About Shaylynn Rose

From an early age Shaylynn Rose was fascinated by mythology, which grew into a full-on love for fantasy and science fiction and roleplaying games, where she honed her storytelling chops. Pushed by a beloved friend to turn the lessons she learned in gaming and fan fiction toward original tales, she began writing stories of her own. Banshee’s Honor began in a fevered rush immediately upon waking from a vivid dream. Published originally by P.D. Publishing in 2007, it fell out of print. In 2014, Ylva Publishing approached her about releasing a revised and augmented version of the novel, which resulted in enough new writing that it was divided into two books – Banshee’s Honor and Banshee’s Vengeance. The updated version of Banshee’s Honor came out in August of this year.

  4. 1. Have you read anything by Shaylynn Rose before?
    No. But I really like to!
    fantasy, scifi, modern YA, paranormal romance, sports my fave genres.

    2. Are you reading high fantasy or diverse right now? If so, what?
    No high fantasy ATM. But read 2 cool diverse books this month.
    "Murder On The Down Low" by Pamela Smauels-Young. Recommend by our neighbor Inita. she likes mystery books + christian books. (I am Jewish, so didn't know some of the christian Bible parts. Inita help explain some customs.)

    don't wanna spoil too much plot but 4 women friends meet, discuss when Maya (friend to all, relative to some girls) dies of HIV.
    Maya contracted from her husband (bisexual, closeted man. had affairs on down low, never told, never use condom. did not get tested in time to know HIV+)

    my favorite chara in the girl group of Special, Nichelle, Vernetta, and JC was JC. She the tough cop and detective. Vernetta, Nichelle both work in law firms. Nichelle is older, likes church.

    Special was youngest, closest to me in age, related to Maya. But I found Special too focus on revenge (to the point of hate crimes, gay bashing, etc). She needed to think more on forgiveness, compassion, tolerance to LGBTQ community.

    Am currently reading "The Fox Woman" by Kij Johnson. This is not high fantasy, but is paranormal or supernatural? deals on kitsune legends, foxfie, Buddhist traditions, Japanese myths. It's very good so far. set long ago so maybe historical fiction?

    I don't know Inita's email yet. she is a new neighbor, but very nice. So I would share the book w/ her if I win.
    our public library can use more books so maybe when it is April book drive suggestion week, I can recommend they add Shaylynn Rose books.
