In this sequel to Black Rose, reunite with the captains of the Immortal Guard and witness Mara and Edward at the beginning of their epic love story, which spans more than a millennium of heartache, pain, and undying devotion.
When Edward is sent on a mysterious quest by the ruthless queen, nineteen-year-old Mara—the youngest sub-captain to ever serve the Royal Guard—vowed to await his return, never anticipating decades would pass without word of his fate. The noble captain is taken prisoner by a rival court where he is forced to endure years of brutal torment at the hands of his captors. His life clings to but a single thought—Mara.
Refusing to accept that her love will never return, Mara clutches to a hope which defies the bounds of reason. However as years pass, memories fade from comfort to unbearable grief. As Mara prepares to accept the unimaginable loss, a sinister creature of roses and shadow haunts her dreams. Dreams of blood. Dreams of torment. Dreams of Edward.
The dark presence lingers, and Mara finds herself trapped in a certainty she fears no other will believe—even those closest to her heart. She must choose between honoring her vows to the immortal courts to which she has sworn her life, or leaving to search for the man who possesses her soul.
Dive into the beginning of the tale that shapes the most feared, most loved, and most revered captain in the history of the immortal courts.
Once again you have out done yourself!! This installment is by far my favorite yet!! You never cease to amaze me with your superb writing skills. You have me engaged from the initial scene to the final paragraph!
In this installment we go back and follow Edward and Mara. With epic flashbacks that grasp your attention and hold it, we get to see how they fall in love all over again. The events that lead up to the most crucial decisions and of course the wrath of the evil queen aunt we have all come to endure and despise! (Or at least I have)
I can NOT stress this enough and I know I am repeating myself, BUT… The author does a tremendous job at painting a detailed and imaginable picture for you. Words written so perfectly that you can play the book out in your mind as if it were a movie script. I absolutely can NOT wait for the next installment! I tip my hat to you… (yet again!!!) BRAVO! 5 stars!
