Dead men don’t tell tales. They wail them from the top of the tallest tower.

Darke of Night, Book 2

Lady Guinevere (Guin) Harvey would much rather be writing gothic tales of intrigue and adventure than dancing attendance on her sister, the newly married Duchess of Silberwald. Until they arrive at Silberwald Castle, a place of enchanting perfection—and gothic shadows.

Ghostly groans and clanking chains lead Guin through ancient, misshapen passages to one of the castle’s many mysteries: a cell where the odd but charming Kasimir is kept chained like an animal. He could be a figment of her vivid dreams, the ghost of a dead, mad prince, or just a political prisoner no one wants to talk about.

Desperate to discover what beast is howling such soul-chilling cries, Guin summons the medium Barbara Darke. But by the time Barbara arrives, Guin can no longer distinguish dream from reality, friend from enemy. Even with all Barbara’s unique talents, they have to face new dangers before they finally discover the terrifying truth of Silberwald Castle.

Warning: Gives new meaning to falling madly in love…


My Thoughts:
 

The Prisoner of Silverwood Castle (Darke of Night, Book 2) by Marie Treanor is an interesting Paranormal Historical Romance set against the backdrop of Silberwald Castle. Can be read as a stand alone, with re-appearing characters from “Death of Treanor Hall”.

“Dead men don’t tell tales. They wail them from the top of the tallest tower.”

Lady Guinevere (Guin) Harvey is the sister, of the newly married Duchess of Silberwald. A Gothic writer, and playing attendence on her sister at Silberwald Castle. Which, is magnificent, intriguing, with ghostly shadows, secrets, clanging chains, and moaning sounds.

Guin asks, medium Barbara Darke, for her skills in distinguishing ghosts, fiction from reality, friend from foe and learning the truth of Silberwald Castle and all within.

Guin finds, Kasimir,who is charming, if a bit odd, kept chained like an animal in the dungeon of the Castle is he real, a ghost, a political prisoner, a mad prince, or a figment of Guin’s imagination? Why is he chained, or is it just a vivid dream?

Will Guin and Barbara find the truth of Silberwald Castle, before it’s too late?

Steady paced, well written with well-developed characters, diversity, intrigue, adventure, and secrets. Yes, and ghosts, unanswered questions, and dangerous adventure.

Readers will get lost in this tale of ghostly intrigue, passion and finding a HEA. What a unique but mesmerizing tale! Well worth the time to read. I look forward to see, what’s next in this intricately woven, and highly intriguing tale.
