Series: Thornchapel #2
on August 1, 2019
The second book in theI’m an outcast and a loner, named for death itself. Fate wasn’t supposed to have plans for me.
But then she came back—the girl I once kissed in a thorn-covered chapel in the woods. She came back, and I could no more resist her than I could pry out my own heart. And by some trick of fate, she wants me as much as I want her. The only problem? She also wants the man who owns Thornchapel, Auden Guest.
And so do I.
Eight years ago, I did something to Auden, something terrible. He hurt me back the only way he knew how, and so here we are: our hatred seasoned with pain and my loneliness seasoned with longing. The only thing we can agree on is Proserpina Markham, and she wants us to find a way to be together—all three of us.
If Auden wants to earn her as his submissive, then he has to earn me as well.
But with the discovery of bones behind the altar and the carnal revel of Beltane fast approaching, it’s becoming clear that Thornchapel’s secrets are much deeper and older than any of us could have ever guessed. And no matter how bright and merry a feast of sparks may be, it’s always followed by ashes.
*Feast of Sparks is Book Two in the Thornchapel series.* Thornchapel series.
5 Bride of Thorns Stars ⭐️
Feast of Sparks picks up immediately from where A Lesson in Thorns dramatically ended. With a discovery that left Poe devastated and an explosion of emotions between herself and her eventual lovers St Sebastian and Auden this book was breathtaking from the first page.
“If I could rearrange the world for you, I would,” he says. “I’d rearrange everything.”
This is a complicated love story about three people that need each other more then their next breath, but there are so many hurts from past and present keeping them apart.
*Poe is our dreamer girl that uses her need for pain and submission as avoidance to her brokenness.
*St Sebastian who has loved them both from the very beginning. He uses his anger to mask his loneliness and submissiveness.
*Auden the rightful ‘king’ hides behind his arrogance and resentment to deny the rejection that remains from their past. But his newfound dominance may just save and heal them all.
“Christ. Auden is in agony that I want Saint; Saint is terrified I’ll choose Auden. And yet, when the three of us are together, all that agony and terror fuse into something holy and filthy and wonderful. How?”
Like magnets they are forever drawn to one another, unknowingly giving into their emotions and desires. It is inevitable that they realise that they all have their part in this relationship. And without the three, they’ll never be whole.
“He drops his eyes down to Poe, tearful and flushed and naked. I can only imagine what a sight she is for a sadist right now—a feast of need and vulnerability, a living altar offering of delicious lust. And then he looks back up to me, hands flexing restlessly at his sides, and I know what he’s imagining. He’s imagining breaking me too, imagining me next to Poe just as flushed and raw and ready for the final act. His twin possessions. His two kept things.”
Readers should know that Feast of Sparks cannot be read as a standalone. As with all Sierra Simone books, they are intense, they are extreme and a fire extinguisher is required to put out the hot mess you’ll be after reading this 🔥🔥
