A cruel fate. Two souls condemned. An impossible love.

I knew he’d choose me before he came to our door on the night of the Tithing. I bore the mark that would make me his.

It was my ancestor who spoke the words that bound us together, and his demon-god who promised protection for the price of blood.

My blood.

I was prepared to be that sacrifice if it would keep my family safe.

Loving Azrael? The thought never crossed my mind. He was and would forever be my enemy.

He’s not the only monster coming for me, though, and somehow, it’s in Azrael’s arms I feel the safest.

But I need to be careful with him. I need to guard my heart because if I don’t, he is sure to destroy me.

My Review 💋

Star Rating : 4.5 / 5 Stars

POV : Dual

Cliffhanger : None

Hero : Azarael

Heroine : Willow

Pace of the story : Moderate

Angst Rating : 5/10

Heat Rating : 5/10

Triggers Involved : Kidnapping, Torture , Past trauma , Betrayal

Plot Summary :

Willow knew that there was no happy ending for her and Azarael , but a part of her hoped that maybe this time things would be different. Until she got to know the truth. Her husband might just be the one person who would ruin her completely.

Azarael knows that he might have to make some difficult choices but it is all for his sister and his family. What he didn't expect was for the Witch to steal his heart. Willow was the one person he loved and now she has been captured. He has to find her before her enemies break her forever.

Overall Opinion :

Willow and Azrael are back ! I have been waiting not so patiently after that cliffhanger and have been losing my mind. It's so good to be back to the Society world by my favourite author duo! Natasha and Ashleigh never disappoint.

Azarael and Willow have an amazing tale of so much pain and suffering. I love how it all turned out to be and the plotline was new and great as well . Another amazing thing was the side plot that the authors have started and I think that we might have more books from this world! I am so excited for thes!

Definitely recommending this one to all the dark romance loving people out there!!
