Once upon a time, six children stumbled upon a wild place hidden deep in the moors, shrouded by secrets and fog. There we played a game among the roses and the thorns that would change us forever, that would follow us the rest of our lives. A game that ended with a hard kiss in the rain and tattered flower petals fluttering from above…

And twelve years later, we’re back.

The heir.
The dreamer.
The priest.
The genius.
The socialite.
The saint.

I’m not going to dream of a forgotten place covered in thorns every night.
I won’t be enchanted by Thornchapel and its glossy, glamorous people. I’m not going to fall in love or have my heart torn in two.

I’m not telling the truth.

Because as this place slowly tightens its coil of secrets and thorns around us, as we uncover the knotted mysteries that grow here, the six of us begin to unravel into filthy, holy pleasure and pain. Fulfilling the promise we once made as children in those whispering ruins, and awakening a fate that will either anoint us or leave us in ashes…



My ARC Review:

OMG how does Sierra Simone keep writing such books that speak to your soul, that call you to read them, and then captivate you completely in the world you are reading about?! The blurb for this had me intrigued, but the actual story and the book are mind blowing… captivating… mesmerising… magical… powerful… raw… sensual… erotic……

This is one of those books you need to read for yourself, no amount of reading reviews for this will do it for you, its a very personal pilgrimage into something so sensual, erotic and magical you won’t know which way to turn!

There’s a very magical / paranormal accent to Thornchapel in its setting, something you can really feel through the writing, its so vivid! The characters are just wonderful, all of them, the dynamics and the isms between them, the sexual tension that’s just bubbling beneath the surface, all the characters work beautifully together! There are plot twists and turns galore, nothing is as it seems or what you expect.

Be prepared for the passion and feelings this story will bring out in you, it’s beyond erotic and sensual, it’s beyond raw and animalistic…. I had to put the book down several times and walk away just so I could take a breath and calm down a little as I thought I might combust with need on the spot!!!!

I can’t wait to find out more about the mysteries surrounding Thornchapel and how its going to affect all the characters moving forward! OMG book 2 can’t come quick enough, grabby hands here!!!
