Long ago, the world was saved. The key to destruction was hidden. Now it is back-concealed in a young girl. Griffin's Shadow continues the adventure of Jelena, a mixed race outcast raised as a servant who has found a new home among the elves. But her peaceful life is shattered as war looms and the power of the Nameless One grows. Set amidst shocking betrayals and uneasy alliances, hers is a story of courage and enduring love in the face of adversity. "In her sequel to Griffin's Daughter and the second title in her trilogy, Moore introduces a deeper conflict on a grand scale. Her strong male and female charČacters and their abiding feelings of love and honor bring a sense of true heroism to their struggles against their obstacles." - Library Journal "[N]onstop action and sympathetic characterizations. Moore's narrative drive and suspenseful plot twists will leave readers eager for the conclusion to this intricate and appealing tale." - Publishers Weekly

About the Author:

Leslie Ann Moore has been a storyteller since childhood. A native of Los Angeles, she received a doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the University of California. She lives and works in Los Angeles, and in her spare time she practices the art of belly dancing. Griffin's Daughter is her first novel.

Review:

This satisfying sequel to 2007's Griffin's Daughter, the coming-of-mage saga of half-elf Cinderella-esque heroine Jelena Sakehera, avoids most mid-trilogy sagginess with nonstop action and sympathetic characterizations. Opening with a shocker-Jelena's father is Keizo Onjara, elf king of Alasiri, currently besieged by a ruthlessly expansionist human empire-Moore piles on threats to Jelena and her pregnancy; sends her adoring new husband, Ashinji, off into faraway slavery as a gladiator; brews two convincing Cain and Abel conflicts; tosses in a sinister sorceress who helps the requisite Nameless One to plot world domination; and spikes the mix with newlywed lovemaking and ritual rape. Though many of the tropes are familiar, Moore's narrative drive and suspenseful plot twists will leave readers eager for the conclusion to this intricate and appealing tale. (Mar.)
