Blurb (from Goodreads):
Fate is a twisted b*$#@, at least his was.
Was one soul worth the lives of millions?
The quandary was one that Rydell King had no choice but to face. No matter the answer, the truth remained—innocence was created to destroy him. She was beautiful…extinguishing her to save his people seemed impossible, and maybe it was. As an immortal, his focus was to destroy the curse upon his people, as he devoured the emotion that bore him—exaltation, no matter the cost. She made him question everything.
Mercy had never been crueler...
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“Deep down every soul knows their fate.”
This was an okay story, but it was a bit confusing.
Basically we had three girls from two families, who were actually half-sisters (even though they didn’t know it), and then we also had parts of the story which seemed to follow their parents, and also some other guy as well.
There was some talk of covens, escorts, spirits, and other stuff, none of which was very well explained, and while the parts with the girls were enjoyable, the rest was unfortunately not quite so enjoyable, and pretty confusing.
Looking at this book on Goodreads I can see that this is part of a series, but I really don’t feel inclined to read the previous 15 books having read this one. Maybe it would have been better if this book had been listed as being part of a series on NetGalley.
