Today I am delighted to be joining the Escapists Tours blog tour for Where Shadows Lie by Allegra Pescatore. I do have a review coming for this book, which is one I’d been wanting to read for ages but unfortunately I’ve been struck down with a nasty bug of some kind and as I want to do the book justice, I’m waiting until I feel less dead. So today I have a spotlight, complete with an extract and a chance to win this fantastic book for yourself.
The Chosen One is Dead.
Disabled since childhood, his little sister never expected the weight of a crown. Now, she might lose it before ever sitting on the throne. Beset by rebels, scheming politicians, and cutthroat bankers, Elenor must choose between accepting her father’s despotic rule or risking everything for her late brother’s lofty ideals.
Meanwhile, from the rainy streets of Lirin to the scorching dunes of the Mondaer Desert, the ripples of her actions have inadvertently broken a chain of events five centuries in the making. Ancient forces move in the shadows, calling in debts and striking deals. A monster with a thousand faces fingers his knife, ready to kill, and a pair of fugitives run for their lives, unaware of the danger they carry with them.
Where Shadows Lie is a non-stop epic fantasy ride, featuring an lgbtq+ and disabled protagonist and filled with court intrigue, sizzling romance, and adorable baby dragons.
