Today I’m sharing with you some news! I was asked a couple months ago to read and review the sequel to the Historical Novel Society’s Editors’ Choice Selection, APRICOTS AND WOLFSBANE by K.M. Pohlkamp, titled Shadows of Hemlock. And today I get to share with you the cover for the first time!
If you haven’t read her first novel, Apricots and Wolfsbane, I highly suggest you click here to read the extract here.
I can tell you right now that Shadows of Hemlock DOES NOT disappoint. If you followed Lavinias’ story in the first novel, as you will see below, Aselin’s story is just as gripping, making this a perfect sequel.
About Shadows of Hemlock:
Regret is a bitter poison.
In a desperate grasp for prestige, Aselin Gavrell betrayed her master to the execution block for the advantage of the onyx pendant now around her neck. Shelter from her master’s crimes comes with an unwanted allegiance and a list of innocents to murder. But the Guild of poison assassins will not be so easily pacified and charge Aselin to develop an antidote as retribution for her betrayal.
Unprepared for the independence she craved, Aselin is forced to seek aid from a fickle contact who wants only one means of payment: a ruby ring with a mare’s head. To save herself from her master’s fate, Aselin must navigate a growing list of debtors eager to toss her aside and confront her guilt in this fast-paced tale of growth and redemption in Tudor England.
