Overview

By Emma V.Leech & Roisin O'Connor

The truth can kill you…

Taken as a small child, from a life where faeries, sirens and mythical creatures are real and treacherous, Jéhenne Corbeaux is totally unprepared when she returns to France to stay with her eccentric Grandmother.

Thrown headlong into a world she knows nothing about she seeks to learn the truth about herself, uncovering secrets more shocking than anything she could ever have imagined and finding that she is by no means powerless to protect the ones she loves.

Despite her Gran’s dire warnings, she is inexorably drawn to the dark and terrifying figure of Corvus, an ancient vampire and master of the Albinus family.

Jéhenne is about to find her answers and discover that, not only is Corvus far more dangerous than she could ever imagine but that he holds much more than the key to her heart…

Product Details

Meet the Author

As a child I spent more time than I'm going to admit to wishing I was Samantha from Bewitched. Despite hours spent perfecting the nose twitch; sadly I have to say that, so far at least, no magical ability has been discovered. Now I have to admit it’s looking unlikely, but remain hopeful.

I was born in Kent in the UK and moved to France in 1998. I currently live, according to my husband, in LALA land but the rest of the time in the middle of nowhere in darkest Dordogne, as far from the real world as possible. I'm married with three daughters and a wild imagination.

I like Tarot cards, anything creepy (except spiders), worship Florence + the Machine and most music as long as it's LOUD, love chocolate, think The Wizard of Oz is the scariest film I've ever seen and still believe in faeries ;)

    One of the many things I love about this book is that it's a different take on Vampire tales. Besides being set in France, the characters are rich and varied with the kind of protagonist, Jéhenne, who a reader can identify with, regardless of their individual circumstances. She seems extraordinarily real in increasingly supernatural circumstances. The book is an easy read but not simple, by any means. Enough plot twists and adventures exist to keep any reader interested and the romance, well, enough said. If you long for adventure, romance in a lush, supernatural setting, this is your book!

    This was an amazing book! I honestly did think it would be a good book seeing as its free but the charecters were well devoloped and there were many twists and turns that were so unexpected that it kept you on the edge of your seat. I recomend this book to anyone who enjoys the supernatural with a pinch of romance. !!! =}

    This is a really good book. Not your typical modern super natural/vampire story. It is set in the lush countryside of France in modern times. The plot centers around Emma, a young woman who journeys from her parents to reconnect with a grandmother who had previously been forbidden to contact. She learns that there is more to her life than meets the eye and begins to travel the path to her destiny. The book is beautifully written and the plot has several layers that meet at the end. There is plenty of adventure, romance, suspense, etc. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in tales with vampires, witches, weres, ghouls, and the like.

    Amazing story.

    Better than i expected. The main character was a bit annoying at first but she turned out really good. And the plot was fantastic. Amazing character development.

    This book was okay. The language was distracting, and it was tough to read at times. I was tempted to abandon it a few times, but the story was just good enough that I really wanted to see how it turned out. There's a bit of a surprising twist at the end, but not enough to detract from the otherwise quite predictable tale.




    It's set in France, in modern times. That was cute, but I feel much of the French wasn't adequately explained. The narrative is also very melodramatic - it's written in the first person, but I honestly feel that's no excuse for the excessive editorialising that goes on. And it's not even consistent, either. This is supposed to be a world where the characters still believe in the old gods, yet these same characters often invoke the various names of the one Christian God in vain. Totally unnecessary, I felt.




    As to the punctuation, there are missing commas all over the place, and not a semicolon in sight. There are plenty of places where I think they are sorely missed!




    All in all, an okay story, but not one I'd recommend. There's apparently a second book coming in the series, but I don't think I'll be reading it.
