An unusual girl. An enigmatic man. An ancient castle. What could go wrong? An outcast her entire life, Corvina Clemm is left adrift after losing her mother. When she receives the admission letter from the mysterious University of Verenmore, she accepts it as a sign from the universe. The last thing she expects though is an olden, secluded castle on top of a mountain riddled with secrets, deceit, and death. An enigma his entire life, Vad Deverell likes being a closed book but knowing exactly everything that happens in the university. A part-time professor working on his thesis, Vad has been around long enough to know the dangers the castle possesses. And he knows the moment his paths cross with Corvina, she's dangerous to everything that he is. They shouldn't have caught each other's eye. They cannot be. But a chill-inducing century-old mystery forces them to collide. People have disappeared every five years for over a hundred years, and Corvina is getting clues to unraveling it all, and Vad needs to keep an eye on her. And so begins a tale of the mystique, the morbid, the macabre, and a deep love that blossoms in the unlikeliest of places.

Review :

This book has been on my TBR for a long time and what a read it was! I have heard great things about this author and I am her new fan now 🤣

I plan to read all her books because her writing style is amazing and I just love her reads so much! Gothikana was a Dark romance, Suspense novel based in a dark castle. Vad and Corvina have an amazing student teacher romance tale that I loved so much.

There is also one more thing lol, I had heard so much praise about this book that I kept waiting for a huge plot twist but that never came. The twist in this book was amazing but I guess I expected more 🥴. But it was amazing nonetheless.

Vad is my absolute favorite and I loved him so much! He was dark and brooding and hid some huge secrets but that man was amazing when he loved someone. Cornima was one lucky girl.

I am highly recommending this book to all the dark romance loving people out there! This one is the best and it's a standalone with an HEA.
