Review: It’s official for me, novella = extra long teaser. This was a stunning paranormal novella introducing us to the world of immortals and witches. While many novellas are written to expand on characters from other storylines, this one is a stand alone (fingers crossed there will be more from this author).
I loved the descriptions of the world that Lucien and Aisleen inhabit. I was taken in by her ability as a healer and his kindness despite being a warrior. When he is betrayed and their paths cross, their destiny is decided for them…yet all is not as it seems. Aisleen knows Lucien’s true identity which causes her unspeakable sorrow. As these characters spend more time together, you can’t help but root for them to get to know each other better and try to figure out a way to make amends – as impossible as it seems.
The ending of the novella certainly leaves us wanting more and wondering how both of these characters will handle betrayal and attraction and what other obstacles they will face before they find happiness, if ever.
