“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.
