I was captivated with this story. Short read but held a powerful tale and a sad one too. The love spell and spell casters, how do they come up with something like that? Oh wait Linda Casebeer did. I was intrigued by Angelique and yet inspired by her determination but sometimes, I don't agree with her decisions. Surviving is the answer but not always pretty, though. I did enjoy the story very much and all the sadness and struggles. But here it comes, left me hanging at the end. Awww..... why? I know there's a reason for this madness. I like Casebeer writing style sharp and to the point, which continued to move me throughout the story. Thank you, Darlene Cruz I won this book on BookLikes giveaway.
