This is the story of reincarnated rock who brings out the deepest part of those around it and shows that sometimes villains are not always what they seem and stereotypes cannot always be trusted.
This debut novel is filled with all the twists and turns of any seasoned author. The characters are unique, and the world, while staying true to our universe, is plunged magnificently into magic (along with the main lead). Following Charlie on her adventure is a delight as she breaks out of her hermit cocoon and finally starts to live, gaining friends and love along the way. The romance sprinkled into this novel is tasteful and beautiful despite its clear ‘subplot’ feel. The male lead is fantastically written and seems to embody mystery and gentleness all while being a ruthless vampire capable of murder. Being the hopeless romantic that I am, I would have liked more scenes with the amazing male lead, but even without a gushing romance, I still fell for him after the first few chapters.
I have high hopes for the next book as this novel does end with a huge cliffhanger that leaves me anticipating the happily ever after that is sure to come. I can’t wait for more information about the pasts of these characters as well as more information about the true villain lurking in the shadows.
5/5* for the male lead alone. A very enjoyable and unpredictable read!
