#BlogTour The Necromancer’s Daughter by D. Wallace Peach #fantasy #dragons #magic

I’m so excited to participate in the blog tour for Diana’s new release, and it’s always a pleasure to host her. Make sure to read my review of The Necromancer’s Daughter at the bottom of the post.

A healer and dabbler in the dark arts of life and death, Barus is as gnarled as an ancient tree. Forgotten in the chaos of the dying queen’s chamber, he spirits away her stillborn infant, and in a hovel at the meadow’s edge, he breathes life into the wisp of a child. He names her Aster for the lea’s white flowers. Raised as his daughter, she learns to heal death.

Then the day arrives when the widowed king, his own life nearing its end, defies the Red Order’s warning. He summons the necromancer’s daughter, his only heir, and for his boldness, he falls to an assassin’s blade.

While Barus hides from the Order’s soldiers, Aster leads their masters beyond the wall into the Forest of Silvern Cats, a land of dragons and barbarian tribes. She seeks her mother’s people, the powerful rulers of Blackrock, uncertain whether she will find sanctuary or face a gallows’ noose.

Unprepared for a world rife with danger, a world divided by those who practice magic and those who hunt them, she must choose whether to trust the one man offering her aid, the one man most likely to betray her—her enemy’s son.

A healer with the talent to unravel death, a child reborn, a father lusting for vengeance, and a son torn between justice, faith, and love. Caught in a chase spanning kingdoms, each must decide the nature of good and evil, the lengths they will go to survive, and what they are willing to lose.

Diana’s Bio:

A long-time reader, best-selling author D. Wallace Peach started writing later in life when years of working in business surrendered to a full-time indulgence in the imaginative world of books. She was instantly hooked.

In addition to fantasy books, Peach’s publishing career includes participation in various anthologies featuring short stories, flash fiction, and poetry. She’s an avid supporter of the arts in her local community, organizing and publishing annual anthologies of Oregon prose, poetry, and photography.

Peach lives in a log cabin amongst the tall evergreens and emerald moss of Oregon’s rainforest with her husband, two owls, a horde of bats, and the occasional family of coyotes.

My Review:

This isn’t my first rodeo with this author’s books. I know to expect writing that reads like prose, beautiful imagery, and top-notch world-building. My expectations were exceeded.

Diana’s done it again. She’s created wonderfully flawed characters who wormed their way into my heart. I cheered for them, nearly cried (seriously, I was close to needing a tissue), and sincerely hoped Teko found a good woman to make strange or magical babies with (you need to read the book to understand, but I promise you’d wish the same for him). It began with Barus, a disfigured orphan taken in by a healer, and then he held the door open for the rest of them (Aster, Joreh, and Teko especially) as they entered my heart. The father/daughter relationship and incredibly strong bond between Barus and Aster is one of my favorite things about this novel. The author certainly knows how to place her characters between a rock and a hard place, and she forces them to make gut-wrenching decisions. Each had their share of difficulties, but I felt Joreh in particular grappled with his beliefs.

There’s no shortage of deadly battle scenes between warring countries and tribes and a bloody struggle for power after the king is assassinated. And dragons! Somehow I missed in the description that they’d be a part of the story, but as a dragon lover I was thrilled and intrigued by Aster’s unique connection with them and how that factored into her identity.

The Necromancer’s Daughter is an exciting adventure filled with magic, epic battles, strong friendships, warring kingdoms, and a bit of romance. Find yourself a comfy chair to curl up in, make sure you’re not interrupted, and then fully immerse yourself in this world.

  2. Thanks so much for the wonderful review, Teri, and for hosting me today. I have a feeling that you crammed some reading time into your busy day in preparation for the post, and I’m delighted and honored that you enjoyed the book. I’m glad you enjoyed Teko. I had to be a little careful that he didn’t steal the show. 🙂 And a tissue? That makes my heart happy. Many hugs for letting me hang out at your place today.

  3. Lovely review, Teri, for a book I’m thoroughly enjoying. I agree with every word you said! Diana, I’m about 2/3’s of the way through, and wanted to finish it last night, but once again, I had a “Kindle Meets Face” moment when I could no longer keep my eyes open, no matter what my brain wanted! I suspect I will finish this one tonight, and I can’t wait to find out how it all wraps up. Beautiful, compelling work as always!

    Thanks for hosting Diana today, Teri. GREAT post! And once again, congratulations on another winner, Diana! ❤️🤗❤️

    1. Ha! Another “Kindle Meets Face” moment. I have a hard time reading at bedtime too, Marcia, even though I turn in at about 8:00, hoping to get a chunk of reading in. By 8:15, my brain is shutting down and the words are blurring. Lol. I’m glad you’re enjoying the read and hope you enjoy the wrap up. Thanks for dropping by Teri’s and making my morning! Hugs.

      1. I try to turn in by 8:00/8:30, too, and for exactly the same reasons. Usually, I can get in about 2 hours before my brain shuts down, but lately, the fatigue thing is still haunting me. (Not as severely, though, and not as often during the day.)

        I can’t WAIT to see how this story ends! I’ve thought of all sorts of possibilities, but am betting you’ll still surprise me. And I’m glad I helped make your morning brighter!

      2. I am delighted to read this review here! I am a fan of Necromancer’s Daughter and savoring it. Unfortunately I didn’t get to read interrupted but I got a lot of nice time chunks in the beginning! I am still reading it—which is fine, because it adds to the savoring part. Diana has me intrigued by Teri’s books, too. After having read her post on her blog tour, I could get my Sci-Fi on. Happy touring, Diana! Nice to meet you, Teri. 🙂

        1. I’m so glad that I tempted you with my review of Teri’s book(s). She’s a great sci-fi writer and I’m always eager to snag her books – usually the day they come out! And no rush reading, Ka. Enjoy the savor, Have a wonderful Sunday and week ahead. Hugs.

          1. Yes you absolutely tempted me! I’m so glad to know that my comment did actually work. I didn’t know until you replied. It didn’t say it was undergoing moderation (or so I didn’t see). I do really enjoy Sci-Fi so it’s not a stretch for me there, more a time thing—but I’m learning how to make time less unwieldy 😃 Have a great week, too!

    1. Thanks, Jacqui. Mutual fans. 🙂 I really do try to tap into the human experience regardless of the fantasy setting. I know you do the same with prehistoric fiction. It’s what makes your books so engaging. Have a wonderful Friday, my friend. Hugs.

    1. Teri writes wonderful reviews, Brad, doesn’t she? And don’t feel left out. Whenever you get to the book is fine. I’m just delighted that it’s in your pile. And Teri’s books are great! Thanks for mentioning that. I thought her Colony duology was riveting. If you enjoy sci-fi, it’s an excellent read. Happy Friday, my friend. 😀

    1. Thanks for dropping by, Colleen. All of the reviews have been so wonderfully written and kind. Teri’s was no exception. I’ve noticed that a lot of readers enjoyed Teko. He’s so transparent! Secondary characters can be powerful additions to a story, but I never really know until that feedback comes in. Happy Friday, my friend. ❤

    1. Aww. I think he probably got a HEA, Denise. He’s pretty happy-go-lucky, and those types of people tend to enjoy themselves no matter what they’re doing. Though things do get very tense! Thanks for stopping by Teri’s, my friend. I’m so grateful to all my hosts. 🙂

    I have this one keyed-up and ready to read. This is a wonderful review, but I’m already a fan of your writing and I can readily believe everything that Teri says here. I’m hoping for a clear 6 weeks now to just indulge my love of reading – I’ve plenty of excellent books waiting for me!

  5. Great review, Teri. I liked Teko too, but my favourite was Barus, hands down. Isn’t it funny how Diana can create such powerful characters that we can all relate to in different ways? The girl knows how to write. 😀

    1. It’s funny how he kind of snuck into so many readers’ hearts, Jacquie. With all the heaviness in the book, there needed to be someone who was happy-go-lucky and absolutely positive about who he was. He just showed up! Thanks so much for the wonderful comment. Huge hugs. ❤
