Banshee's Honor by Shaylynn Rose has been re-released in an all new version. It's now Banshee's Honor and Banshee's Vengeance. Both are available to purchase at Ylva Publishing and Amazon.com
Banshee's Honor Blurb:
Warleader . This is what the people of Y'Dan used to call the proud warrior Azhani Rhu'len. Banshee . Oath breaker. Murderer. These are words that slip off their tongues now. Azhani Rhu'len, once one of the greatest of Y'Dan's warriors, is now just a common criminal, escaping the justice of the kingdom she swore to serve. ~~~ Kyrian Stardancer. Goddess' Own. A healer and priestess, she is inviolate until one day, when her world is turned upside down and tossed over the back of a horse—literally. Torn from all she knows, Kyrian finds her fate now rests squarely on the shoulders of the oath breaker, Azhani Rhu'len. When signs of ancient evil appear, Azhani and Kyrian must choose whether to ignore the warnings or stand and face the terrifying menace.

Banshee's Vengeance Blurb:
Honor. It was torn from Azhani's grasp by the sorcerer whose hatred of her family is decades old. Love. Ylera, Azhani's beloved, was murdered, her death no more than one callous act in a chain meant to put a noose around Azhani's neck. Once, not long ago, Azhani had been hopeless, lost, and without any desire for a future, but now, the rimerbeasts have come, and she is needed. Can she put aside her yearning for justice and face this ancient menace as honor demands, or will the bonds of love lost hurl her into a mire of death and revenge?

A message from KMorgan
Through the years many of you have indicated that you would purchase my books, if I ever published them. At the moment three of my books are for sale in Amazon.com . My request to you might sound strange, but I am asking everyone NOT to purchase these books.
I have been the victim of copyright infringement and Amazon is in the process of removing the books and investigating the infringement. I am also looking into possible legal action.
If I can find an interested publisher, I have decided to publish the stories in the future. I will let you know when this happens, here in the Academy's web page, so that you can be certain that you are getting good copies. The unauthorized books were not professionally edited and contain typographical errors. I've also alerted Amazon of my other stories in the Academy's web page to prevent the possibility of further infringement.
As a personal favor to me, please, do not buy the books, and/or return them for a refund. If anyone bought those books, your money went to an unknown source.
Please, help me stop copyright infringement!
