Fantasy Historical

Some might feel Rabbit was ineptly named: no trembling bunny, Rabbit is a powerful figure with diverse and powerful friends. Although it might seem like right after quashing a rebellion, he and his king would be able to rest and recoup. Instead, as the king's heir, Rabbit is told he has to make recompense for when his mother, a highborn lady, deserted her betrothed to run away with his father. Therefore, the entire party lands in the middle of intrigues upon intrigues when they arrive to meet Rabbit's new betrothed: the daughter of the man jilted by his mother.

In addition, unusual magic abounds, a companion's daughter is revealed, and twisty plots and subplots tighten like a snare around Rabbit, who quickly realizes he may once again be enmeshed in circumstances he cannot control.

A detailed fantasy adventure, SHADOWS PAST expertly enfolds the reader with detailed exposition, thorough character development and fascinating examples of elaborate cultural diversity.
