Lianora has never placed much stock in the gods or in the lore of the land. She especially never believed the legends that spoke of a lost ancient magic, a magic woven from the fabric of people’s souls. So when she discovers the teardrop necklace, she thinks it to be nothing special—until the visions begin, horrific glimpses of an approaching evil, mingled with fragments of a legendary empress’ shattered past. Try as she might, Lianora cannot ignore the omens. As the visions worsen, she finds herself internally battling a shadowy voice that seems bent on consuming her whole. When tragedy strikes her home, she is forced to flee and team up with Vishka, a beautiful, fierce warrior shrouded in mystery, and Rowan, a brooding young knight. Together, the reluctant allies must find a way to conquer the darkness threatening to overtake the land of Eresea, and Lianora will have to come to terms with the destiny she never asked for.


What can I say? I think it's impossible not to be charmed by this book!

Divided into two parts, the first was definitely the one to give me goosebumps... A Lady, a Knight, a forbidden love... Romance fulfilled practically every chapter and I couldn't help myself but completely fall for the gorgeous Knight... What it starts as an intriguing story alternated by lovely/seducing moments with heartbroken ones, results in a picture bigger than that and an unexpected event breaks that kind of magic for another one, a "real" one... That's when the second part begins and we enter in an exciting circle of events, action and revelations! There was nothing predictable and for me this is one of the things that made a book a great read. I had just a little lack of interest in a couple of occasions during the last few chapters, but nothing a good cliffangher like the one in this instalment couldn't adjust.

A captivating story, a fascinating world with beautiful characters, an amazing writing style... Krystle Jones, I'm desperately waiting for the second book of your Soul Cycle series!

RATING: 4.5/5
