Where blessings and curses collide, even the moon holds secrets of its own…
Seventeen-year-old Lorileen Masters is cursed. To undo the damage, she must travel all the way to the vindictive witch Rhiannyn’s lair and bargain for a reversal, even as demon shades stalk her. That is, until she’s rescued by a highwayman hunter on a golden horse. Archer Cross seems to possess a remarkable…if not mysterious…shielding effect against Lori’s shades, so much that she insists he chaperone her to the witch’s woods.
Neither expected the love of a lifetime; yet, that is exactly what Lori and Archer find in each other. But if Lori succeeds in reversing her curse, then she’ll retain no memory since its casting – including every moment with Archer. Will she abandon her quest to vanquish the darkness that haunts her, or can the heart’s true love prevail even apart from the mind’s memory?
What I think I loved most about this book was how vivid the world was that C.K. Brooke created. With the actual descriptions of the world, and the likable characters. The author has an amazing way of writing that makes you feel like you are apart of the story.
The plot is very simple. A young girl with a curse travels to faraway lands with a male companion to confront the witch so she can negotiate with her to get her normal life back. The characters had a lot of personality and really wished the book was longer so we could learn more about them.
Overall it was an interesting page turner! A great simple story, sometimes a little creepy.
4 out of 5 stars
Thank you C.K. Brooke for sending me a copy to review.
