Hannah Ross wrote her first story at the age of six and hasn't stopped since. Wishing to have a steady profession, she trained as a clinical nutritionist, but the writing bug was too strong and Hannah continued to write fiction in the form of short stories, novels, poetry and plays, as well as many non-fiction essays and articles. Hannah enjoys a quiet life in the country with her husband, four children, two cats and a flock of chickens.
A multi-generational adventure of the Swift family, members of which experience magic portal excursions to the land of Tilir, where they find themselves involved in tales of bravery, intrigue and survival.
"If you love fantasy authors like Tolkien, G.R.R. Martin, J.K. Rowling with a touch of classic 19th century literature you won't be disappointed by this novel. Love, honor, betrayal, magic, fights for power and for survival captivate the reader from the first to the last page."
"...Vividly described, with a great attention to details and settings. The characters are complex and, contrarily to a popular fantasy trope, can't be divided into good and evil: each point of view is convincingly explained and each main character is trying to do what's right, even if sometimes this has disastrous consequences."
"Paths of the Shadow quickly gathers steam and colour, weaving together a complex set of characters and story arcs that focus on love, loss, and change."
