About the Author:
“I was transfixed as I watched him; his skin was simply luminous in the sunlight, yet not a bead of sweat sheened his face. I could have remained entranced by him for hours, for in this state he was simply magnificent, almost – supernatural.”
22-year-old Bree Spencer hates prejudice of all kinds – especially the blatant elitism she is subjected to as a resident staffer at her aunt’s exclusive estate, Blackall Manor. So when Bree nearly winds up as road-kill on account of the wealthy Sebastian Templeton, she struggles to reconcile her inexplicable attraction to him. On the surface Sebastian epitomises all that Bree usually despises, yet her draw to him is irrefutable.
Events become decidedly more unusual upon Sebastian’s arrival as a guest at Blackall Manor. Despite her reservations, Bree finds Sebastian intriguing; but his insistence to get to know her triggers a raft of niggling suspicions – heightened by a series of strange dreams and phenomena – until eventually, she learns the truth.
Sebastian is a guardian, a powerful descendant of a sacred ethereal line; and Bree’s uncanny gift has prompted him to find her. But while an anomaly inspired their connection, an ancient prophecy and ethereal lore forbid it. And with Sebastian’s purist brother determined to honour both at any cost, an epic battle with unthinkable stakes could be Bree’s only chance at survival.
When we talk about paranormal romance the beings that come to mind are usually Vampires, Werewolves, Angels, ghosts and even zombies. When I heard that this book was indeed Paranormal Romance but none of those where present my first thought was “How does K.C. King is going to pull this off?”
Guess what, she introduced Guardians, Ethereals and Elementals. What do they do? You may ask, well, they are in charge of keeping the balance among all living forces and are the hottest, cutest, most charming and interesting beings I’ve read about.
Through the book we follow Bree a young woman who lives with her Aunt due to tragic circumstances and ends up working at Blackall Manor, where she gets the chance to get to know Sebastian after he almost ran her over and suddenly her world is turned upside down.
K.C. King has an extraordinary eye for detail, so much that you can practically feel the wind and smell the ocean with the turn of a page.
This book had me glued to my sofa until 2 am, I swear the author is a walking thesaurus; the way this book is written is like reading Emily Dickinson but with supernatural beings parading through the pages, simply astonishing.
The plot is magnificent; it has the perfect rhythm and the romantic web she weaves traps you as soon as it starts.
The female character is strong and confident and doesn´t fear to take matters into her on hands, Sebastian is chivalrous and at the same time understands and supports Bree´s need to be independent and self-sufficient.
I loved this book, it left me wishing the book was longer or having the second installment so I could keep reading nonstop.
This is the kind of book that makes knees go weak and hearts beating irregularly.
But please guys don’t take my word for it, go and read it I swear you won’t be disappointed.
This is the easiest 5 start plus rate I’ve done, if I could give this book a million stars rating I would it´s definitively that good.
