The Mist-Torn Witches

First up for March is Barb Hendee's "The Mist-Torn Witches".

This has been sitting in my "To Be Read" pile forever it seems.

Here is the Amazon blurb.  Sounds like a good mystery is involved.

In a small village in the nation of Droevinka, orphaned sisters Céline and Amelie Fawe scrape out a living selling herbal medicines in their apothecary shop. Céline earns additional money by posing as a seer and pretending to read people’s futures.

But they exist in a land of great noble houses, all vying for power, and when the sisters refuse the orders of a warlord prince, they must flee and are forced to depend on the warlord prince’s brother, Anton, for a temporary haven.

A series of bizarre deaths of pretty young girls is plaguing the village surrounding Prince Anton’s castle. He offers Céline and Amelie permanent protection if they can use their “skills” to find the killer.

With little choice, the sisters enter a world unknown to them—of fine gowns and banquets and advances from powerful men. Their survival depends on catching a murderer who appears to walk through walls and vanish without a trace—and the danger grows with each passing night.

I am a fan of her other work and she is also writing the Introduction to Strange Brew.

I am REALLY looking forward to this one.  What I have read so far there are a lot of cool ideas I can add to my games.

More on the finale of "Tomb of Horrors" later today.

This looks good. I'll have to add it to my TBR pile.
