As much as I enjoy blog tours, I have to admit: I breathe a sigh of relief every time they’re over. The past three weeks with Goddess Fish Promotions has been awesome, and now I’m ready for a break.
In lieu of a formal blog post this week, I want to share some highlights of the tour, as well as a new review of Eolyn, Book One of The Silver Web.
New Review for Eolyn
I was so happy to see this pop up over the weekend:
“Gastreich is truly masterful in weaving powerful themes throughout the story. A tale of female oppression, prejudice, and even deadly seduction, Eolyn touches on issues that are deeply relevant in our own society. At times both heartwarming and heart-wrenching, the story warns young women about the ways in which the world will try to take advantage of them—but it does so in a way that never denies them their magic. Women and men alike will be moved by the strength, compassion, and raw human emotion it takes for a young woman to thrive in a society that has hunted her since birth.” 4 stars
New Reviews for Sword of Shadows
Awarding the novel 4.5 stars, Libri Amori Miei describes Sword of Shadows as “wonderfully written, with vivid descriptions, engaging characters and a unique storyline.” One of two reviews that were given as part of the Goddess Fish tour, you can read the full text here.
The White Sky Project also gave Sword of Shadows 4 stars, noting “I especially love that this trilogy has such intriguing women playing significant roles on both sides of the story…” You can read the full review by visiting The White Sky Project or on Goodreads.

My favorite interviews:
Books Chatter asked pretty much everything under the sun. Visit this site if you want to listen to the play list for The Silver Web, meet my dream team for the cast of Sword of Shadows, or just find out what it took to bring this epic tale to press.
A long-time fan of Eolyn, Queen of All She Reads tailored my interview to some very specifics about how the trilogy was developed, and the place of Sword of Shadows in the larger arc of the trilogy. You will also get some tantalizing hints as to what’s in store for Daughter of Aithne if you visit this site.
