Wishlist Wednesday # 24

Wishlist Wednesday is hosted by Pen to Paper. It is the place to showcase one book that has been on our wishlist.

On My Wishlist is: House of Shadows by Rachel Neumeier

Blurb from Amazon:
Orphaned, two sisters are left to find their own way.

Sweet and proper, Karah’s future seems secure at a glamorous Flower House. She could be pampered for the rest of her life… if she agrees to play their game.

Nemienne, neither sweet nor proper, has fewer choices. Left with no alternative, she accepts a mysterious mage’s offer of an apprenticeship. Agreeing means a home and survival, but can Nemienne trust the mage?

With the arrival of a foreign bard into the quiet city, dangerous secrets are unearthed, and both sisters find themselves at the center of a plot that threatens not only to upset their newly found lives, but also to destroy their kingdom.

I’m loving the green cover. That’s what drew me to the book. From the blurb, I like the two sisters being so different from each other but their fates are still intertwined.

The setting worries me a little because it sounds like it might be in a medieval world. I like the medieval world…I just prefer to not read it frequently.
