About the Author

I live in beautiful Shropshire in the UK and keep a craft shop. Authors like David Gemmell and Anne McCaffrey have always been on the top of my reading pile and are my inspiration to write. I have no interest in stories of the mundanities of everyday life but give me a dragon and a magic sword and I am good to go.

There is a Power thrumming through the world author Janet French has created in The Silver House. It is a mystical, magical thing, and there are those who can use it; harness it. It is an important part of these people. It is who they are. It is what they are. Because of this Power, they are also in danger. The Silver House begins in the middle of a battle. Some Mothers and Sisters, citizens who have been trained or are in training to use the Power, are trying to keep the children they are protecting calm and happy in the midst of all the chaos. Other Sisters are still searching the city at the beginning of the story, trying to gather the children and bring them to the safety of The Silver House. They must be kept safe from the Zashrans, a sect of men who are destroying the city and seeking to destroy the people who are able to harness and use the Power. And all of this is JUST the first chapter! This is not a book for someone looking for a nice relaxing read to pass the time with. Oh, no! This story made me feel like I was running a race! My body was actually tired, as if I had been one of the poor children, running for my life with the help of the two women who were able to harness the Power in their fight to find a safe place for the survivors they had found. Yet, I’d put the story down, do something else, and inevitably find myself drawn back to it later, wanting more; needing more. The storyline is excellent. Ms. French’s world and characters are real and believable. I feel it is an Epic adventure, worthy of being compared to Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. Parts of it are cruel and scary. There are moments in it where the reader will be completely worn out and ready to cry. It expertly sets the stage for the next book in the series and made me stomp my foot, wanting more when I finally made it through. Definitely worth five stars, and this reader is waiting with for the next in the series! —Rowan Shannigan, Author of Awareness
