Nino Delia‘s biting wit gives a wry, modern twist to the famous Red Riding Hood fairy tale in Caged Bird Rising. A Grim Tale of Women, Wolves, and Other Beasts. Meanwhile, Shaylynn Rose’s Banshee’s Honor is an overlooked, out-of-print high fantasy classic we love so much that we asked Shaylynn to republish it with us. We proudly make this book available once more to the public. Read more about both books below:
Captivating Worldbuilding with a Compelling Lesbian Protagonist
As fans of fantasy classics know, it’s not dragons and wizards and swordplay that drive the fantasy stories we remember, but characters and plots that focus on truly human stories in an epic setting. Banshee’s Honor is just one such story.
Warleader. The people of Y’Dan used to call proud warrior Azhani Rhu’len that. But now, it’s Oath Breaker, Murderer. Banshee.
When Kyrian Stardancer, a healer and inviolate priestess, finds her fate in the hands of the nortorious oath breaker, Azhani Rhu’len, both women must choose whether to stand and face a terrifying evil that threatens their world.
A Classic Fairy Tale With a Clever Modern Twist
Do your sympathies lie with the underdog rather than the shining hero? Then debut author Nino Delia’s Caged Bird Rising. A Grim Tale of Women, Wolves, and Other Beasts just might be the book for you.
Robyn lives in a world where women aren’t supposed to ask questions, and their only goal in life is to find a husband and be a good wife. But when Robyn is bitten by a wolf, her worldview starts to change. The flight from her incensed betrothed leads her into the woods, where she meets the mysterious Gwen, who helps Robyn change into one of the independent beasts she has always been warned about.
Caged Bird Rising is a rich story with quirky characters and witty humor. And, for once, it’s not the prince who gets the happily-ever-after.
