Forbidden to cross the Elvin barrier into human lands, Brock cannot sate his curiosity. Cursed by a vampyre bite that forces him to feed on the life-essence of others, he is unable to touch another without taking their life. Chained by prophesy, he must find a witch, pierce her heart, and draw her blood for his cure.

Celeste must escape the monks who have held her prisoner for years. Her magic has been kept dormant by her captors. An ancient powerful Warloc craves her powers. If he succeeds in devouring her magic, she and the world will die.

When Brock falls in love with Celeste before realizing her demise is his cure, will love triumph over his desire to be healed? Will he risk everything to save her from a Warloc, an oath breaker, who also wants her dead?

My Thoughts

Magic, mystery, and dangerous enemies this book has all the ingredients for an exciting new romance.

The setting was darkly beautiful and the imagery brought it to life. I really enjoyed the world building in this book and discovering all of its secrets. The rules and creatures in this world were very interesting and had me captivated, especially Brock.

Brock was mysterious and had a lot of depth to him. He has been cursed to take the life of anyone he touches. I grew to love and care for this character, so I felt his pain when he finally had the cure so close, but so far away. He has really been through a lot and I admired his strength when things got tough. Most of all I admired how he could protect Celeste, even at the cost to himself.

Celeste was a woman who knew what she wanted and went after it. It was amazing how resilient she was and how she was able to be so strong after being a prisoner for so long. I loved learning more about her and seeing her relationship with Brock blossom. They are so great together and you could really feel the chemistry between them.
