I’m an outcast and a loner, named for death itself. Fate wasn’t supposed to have plans for me.
But then she came back—the girl I once kissed in a thorn-covered chapel in the woods. She came back, and I could no more resist her than I could pry out my own heart. And by some trick of fate, she wants me as much as I want her. The only problem? She also wants the man who owns Thornchapel, Auden Guest.
And so do I.
Eight years ago, I did something to Auden, something terrible. He hurt me back the only way he knew how, and so here we are: our hatred seasoned with pain and my loneliness seasoned with longing. The only thing we can agree on is Proserpina Markham, and she wants us to find a way to be together—all three of us.
If Auden wants to earn her as his submissive, then he has to earn me as well.
But with the discovery of bones behind the altar and the carnal revel of Beltane fast approaching, it’s becoming clear that Thornchapel’s secrets are much deeper and older than any of us could have ever guessed. And no matter how bright and merry a feast of sparks may be, it’s always followed by ashes.
*Feast of Sparks is Book Two in the Thornchapel series.*
There are books that are almost impossible to leave a review for, and for me, this is one of them. It picks up where A Lesson In Thornes leaves off. And if you didn’t already know, that one MUST be read before this book. This one told us a bit more of the back story between St Sebastian and Auden, and it made me love St Sebastian even more. I was intrigued by him in the first book, but he’s quickly becoming one of my favorite characters out of this group. There is so much more angst and this one is way sexier than the first book. The deeper we dive in to the mystery that is Thornchapel, the more twists and turns there appear to be. This story is deliciously dark and erotic and pulls you in from the first page. Each character reveals a bit more about themselves with each book and ones that I really wasn’t connected with (Beckett), by the end of this story, I was drawn to even more. I want to know all the answers to their secrets now, but at the same time, I take my time reading this story because I don’t want it to end.
This series is one of my favorites by this author, and I cannot wait to see how much more the mystery unravels in Harvest of Sighs
