Once upon a time, six children stumbled upon a wild place hidden deep in the moors, shrouded by secrets and fog. There we played a game among the roses and the thorns that would change us forever, that would follow us the rest of our lives. A game that ended with a hard kiss in the rain and tattered flower petals fluttering from above…

And twelve years later, we’re back.

The heir.
The dreamer.
The priest.
The genius.
The socialite.
The saint.

I’m not going to dream of a forgotten place covered in thorns every night.
I won’t be enchanted by Thornchapel and its glossy, glamorous people. I’m not going to fall in love or have my heart torn in two.

I’m not telling the truth.

Because as this place slowly tightens its coil of secrets and thorns around us, as we uncover the knotted mysteries that grow here, the six of us begin to unravel into filthy, holy pleasure and pain. Fulfilling the promise we once made as children in those whispering ruins, and awakening a fate that will either anoint us or leave us in ashes…

A Lesson in Thorns by Sierra Simone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First things first: #CoverWIN, not only for its beauty, but for its representation of this story. Well done!

Here’s the thing about stories like this one, you shouldn’t even read the blurb before you begin. You’re going to try to make assumptions about what you’re about to read and more than likely, you’d be wrong. But make no mistake, this story is epic in all the ways. There were countless times I closed my kindle just to stare into space and absorb what was happening. The story is that captivating. But also so much more than that. It’s charged with energy because of its edge factor. You’re sucked in so deeply you literally forget there is world spinning around you. This is the second time this month this has happened to me with a story. It’s not a story you just read, you experience it because it sucks you in. The why of that is a very difficult thing to put into words and describe in a review, but it is an outstanding feeling. You just can’t get enough but yet you can’t stop reading.

The story is woven thru six characters. Six young people who have history. Six friends who are connect by love and hate.,,,and so much more! But at the core of this story there is a romance, and it is gloriously sensual.

This is the part where I tell you I’m not giving you details on the story-line. I know most of you will understand why based on what I’ve shared so far. I will tell you that every page wow’d me. These six young people are in my heart and in my head. I became one of them while I read this story and I can’t wait to continue with Feast of Sparks. Unraveling the mystery that is these six characters is going to be an #Epic2019Read! I feel it!
