Press Release for Shadows of Valor
Elsie Park's debut novel, Shadows of Valor, a beautifully written historical novel set in medieval England.
In Shadows of Valor, Park throws the reader into a quiet medieval town. On the surface, the town is content and booming, but within its roots, something dark is stirring. This darkness threatens to overpower the once-peaceful town, until a mysterious figure appears: The Shadow.
Blurring the psychological haze of justice and revenge, Park's debut novel brings new meaning to the Dark Knight. As the legendary shadow of Graywall is summoned to protect the spawning deceit of the kingdom, the reader is taken on a chivalric adventure through the muddy and mired streets of medieval England, where evil is as inescapable as the shadow that lurks behind its walls.
From a wildland firefighter to a security guard, police officer, and receiving a degree in botany and zoology, Park has done it all. It was only a matter of time before she wrote her first novel. While on a hiatus to Italy, Park was inspired by the thick presence of ancient and medieval history. She felt it in its walls, and slowly, yet surely, a story was born.
Shadows of Valor release date is September 7, 2013.
