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?
~ Review ~
I think this is the first time I've read a book where the vampire was Elvin, and it definitely made for a refreshing change. Brock had a curiosity for humans and after coming across a vampire one day whilst exploring he finds himself cursed, with just the words of a prophesy to help save him. Out casted from Elvin lands, he sets off to find the witch that will help end the curse, but twisted fate intervenes when they fall in love.
Very well written, I loved how the author built the world up slowly. With the descriptive nature, it was easy to visualise everything as it happened and I got completely pulled in to the story. The ending was very cleverly worked out and I definitely hadn't seen it coming, which just made it that much better. Very entertaining to read, this was more than the typical paranormal romance and I would highly recommend this book to all lovers of such.
