A Wonder book about forgiveness and love!! Victor is a Blackburn and all male heirs are cursed and killed horrifically on their 27th Birthday. There is a way to break the curse but he has been looking for Mercy for over a decade and still has not been able to find her. When Mercy was 7 she saw her parents murdered through the looking bowl, her father by his brother (the butcher) and her mother by Victor a 10 yr. Old boy. She put a spell on her that she would never be found and break the curse. When she is found accidentally Victor kidnaps her and takes her to Scotland to finally break the curse. In order for her to do this she must have love in her heart. She had vowed since 7 never to break the curse. When Victor gives her a love potion he hopes all will be well not realizing the spell is only temporary. You have intrigue, betrayal, a ghost, twists and turns and finally love all wrapped up in a fantastic read!! I love the twist on Freya's daughters Elizabeth and Vivian!!

The actual writing is good but I couldn't even get through the sample due to the violent beginning. Will look for something else by this author.

'Blackburn Castle' by R.C. Matthews is book Two in the "Tortured Souls" series. This is the story of Victor and Mercy. I have read the previous book but feel this can be a standalone book. Victor was just 10 years old when he was forced to Kill Mercy's mother. Just a small child that had be torched and threaten with his own death if he did not. Mercy's mother had already witnessed the awful man called 'Butcher' who was her brother in-law kill her husband. Butcher had promised not to kill her, her daughter Mercy or Victor if she would tell him where Mercy was. Once she told him he said he wouldn't kill her but he forced Victor to kill or be killed. Mercy mother told Victor to sacrifice herself to save him. This is how the books it has grabbed you right away with this opener. It goes from there where the story moves forward to deal with Victor and Mercy now grown up. Mercy has been in hiding and wants to stay that way so that the curse that is on Victor will take his life with he turns 27. Victors life has been a harsh one and now if like all the other males in his family when he turns 27 he fated to die. But will Mercy help him? Can they move forward with so much cursed upon them? "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Great read I was hooked from beginning to end. This read transports to a world of castles, witches and magic. Victor is cursed to die and his only hope of surviving is to find a witch that has vanished. Mercy is Victor’s only hope; however, she can’t wait to see him die. Can he change her mind and get her to save him? This is a fast paced read with a great story and the chemistry between Victor and Mercy is wonderful. I loved it!
