Shalador’s Lady by Anne Bishop

A sequel to last year’s The Shadow Queen, this book shares many of the same themes of trauma, survival and the importance of doing what is right. Bishop handles these difficult subjects with a good deal of grace and sensitivity and, as always, with compelling characterization. Cassidy’s struggle to believe in herself is particularly resonant, and Gray’s mastery of his inner demons is triumphant. –Romantic Times, 4 1/2 Stars
