One of my favorite authors, Dora Machado, has a NEW BOOK out!
The Curse Giver
I first became a fan of Machado when I read her Stonewiser series! (If you’re not familiar with Machado’s Stonewiser series, check out my reviews for The Heart of the Stone, The Call of the Stone, and The Lament of the Stone.)
If you enjoy reading fantasy novels that have deep characters, original magic systems, unique worlds, plot twists, and more, then Machado is an author you have GOT to read!
Lusielle’s bleak but orderly life as a remedy mixer is shattered when she is sentenced to die for a crime she didn’t commit. She’s on the pyre, about to be burned, when a stranger breaks through the crowd and rescues her from the flames.
Brennus, Lord of Laonia is the last of his line. He is caught in the grip of a mysterious curse that has murdered his kin, doomed his people and embittered his life. To defeat the curse, he must hunt a birthmark and kill the woman who bears it in the foulest of ways. Lusielle bears such a mark.
Stalked by intrigue and confounded by the forbidden passion flaring between them, predator and prey must come together to defeat not only the vile curse, but also the curse giver who has already conjured their demise.
I can’t tell you all how excited I am that The Curse Giver is finally here!
