Summary of the Book:

Bound as one to love, honor, or burn.

Two years ago, Louise le Blanc fled her coven and took shelter in the city of Cesarine, forsaking all magic and living off whatever she could steal. There, witches like Lou are hunted. They are feared. And they are burned.

Sworn to the Church as a Chasseur, Reid Diggory has lived his life by one principle: thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. His path was never meant to cross with Lou’s, but a wicked stunt forces them into an impossible union—holy matrimony.

The war between witches and Church is an ancient one, and Lou’s most dangerous enemies bring a fate worse than fire. Unable to ignore her growing feelings, yet powerless to change what she is, a choice must be made.

And love makes fools of us all.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. There is a lot going on in this books. Lou is a witch who has run from her coven and hiding out. Reid is a hunter who follows the law to the letter. There is moment that happens and the two of them end up married to each other. The two of them could not be more different. This is a story that is a old one with a new spin. The witches versus the witch hunters that in covens on one side and the church on the other.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
