Ophelia's been successful at hiding her true identity, until the mark of the serpent appears on her neck—a death sentence, should it be seen by anyone in her town. Hiding the mark might save her from falling victim to the witch hunts of her era, but the scorching sensation it carries can’t be ignored.
When the mysterious Ethan is sent to collect her for a life of something more, she learns concealing the mark is the least of her concerns. She’s destined to do a new task—to join a dark, supernatural world and protect the future of people she may never meet.
What she doesn’t know—what she learns too late—is that her initiation won’t be complete until she kills the man who’s captured her heart.
Another interesting book by Rebecca Hamilton! I loved the Forever Girl, so I thought I'd give this one a try, and I'm glad I did.
Ophelia's story is one full of complications and heartache. A love that can never be because of their destiny... Or can it?
I can't wait to read more about the forever girls!
If you haven't read The Forever Girl you can still read this novella as it's good enough to be a stand alone and if you decide to read the first book it will answer a lot of the questions that you'll have.
