When librarian Poe Markham takes the job at Thornchapel, she only wants two things: to stay away from Thornchapel’s tortured owner, Auden Guest, and to find out what happened to her mother twelve years ago. It should be easy enough—keep her head down while she works in the house’s crumbling private library and while she hunts down any information as to why this remote manor tucked into the fog-shrouded moors would be the last place her mother was seen alive. But Thornchapel has other plans for her...

As Poe begins uncovering the house’s secrets, both new and old, she’s also pulled into the seductive, elegant world of Auden and his friends—and drawn to Auden’s worst enemy, the beautiful and brooding St. Sebastian. And as Thornchapel slowly tightens its coil of truths and lies around them, Poe, Auden and St. Sebastian start unravelling into filthy, holy pleasure and pain. Together, they awaken a fate that will either anoint them or leave them in ashes…
From the author of the USA Today bestselling New Camelot series comes an original fairy tale full of ancient mysteries, lantern-lit rituals, jealousy, money, murder, sacred torment, and obsessions that last for lifetimes...

Q & A Review By Angie & Liezel:

What do you love/hate about the book?

Angie: There’s so much to love about this book. From the characters to the cover and the words within. There’s something poetic and hypnotic about Sierra’s writing that I can’t get enough of. When they were at the chapel I could hear the drums along with them. I felt the passion and heat. The buildup to something that would change everyone’s life. That’s damn good writing.

The only thing I hated about this book was the cliff and that it ended too soon. I don’t think I can wait until June for the next one.

Liezel: I love the intrigue, how it kept me guessing as to why they those particular six were destined to find themselves in the thorn chapel the first time and then the second time. I also thought that the characters were interesting. To see how the characters grew and matured and how they will further down the road is definitely one of the reasons I will keep coming back for more.

Do you have a favorite character(s)? If so why?

Angie: I have so many that I’m asking myself why I wrote this question. Lol Each character is unique and have their own flaws. My favorites would have to be Poe, Auden and Saint.

Poe for her innocence and dream like state. Saint for his vulnerability and wanting to be accepted. Auden for his strength and loyalty.

Liezel: I would have to agree with Angie but in the end, my opinion will probably change! So we shall see!

Would you participate in the Imbolc if you were in the character’s position?

Angie: I would in a heartbeat! I’m all for new experiences and this would be one that I surely wouldn’t forget! There’s something hot and magical about a place that has so much history. The ambience alone would be an aphrodisiac.

Liezel: Uh, yes! I’m all up for adventure these days. I seriously wouldn’t mind being ANY characters in ANY of Sierra Simone’s books. LOL!
