THE THIRTEENTH HOUSE
Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy
Shapeshifter Kirra Danalustrous has just learned that her younger half-sister, Casserah, has been named heir to the house of Danalustrous. Casserah balks at her obligation to tour the other lands that comprise the Twelve Houses and suggests that Kirra go in her place.
Kirra takes on the form of her sister and heads to the city of Ghosenhall, where she meets up with a group of friends who have been charged with protecting the heir of Gillengaria while she makes a similar tour. Combining forces, Kirra and her friends face many dangers while protecting the princess, but her greatest danger is the married Lord Romar.
In the second book of the Twelve Houses series, Shinn again has brought interesting characters to life and put them into a fascinating story. Kirra is particularly interesting as she tries to reconcile the demands of her heart vs. those of her country. (Mar., 432 pp., $24.95)
