Welcome to Roselock, where the ground bleeds, and the night screams.
After the senseless murder of her fiancé, Iona Faye can’t move on. There was no happily ever after, and no goodbye. Desperate for closure, she goes to see Roselock’s one and only reclusive inhabitant.
Sully Whitmore has lived a life of seclusion, with one hand on the gate to the other side, and a family curse binding him to the town his ancestors founded. When Iona demands he speak to Jack for her one last time, he knows something is wrong. She paints a picture of love and devotion, but Sully sees something else: a story of possession. A story of lies. A story of two faces.
But it’s too late now. Sully has opened the gate. And he will help Iona find the truth about Jack, if it’s the last thing he does.
This is by far my favorite book by Keary Taylor. It is her best writing and her best story. I'd have to say this is in my Top 5 books of all time.
There is nothing more off-putting than a two-dimensional lead, but both main characters are dynamic.
Their back stories aren't dropped on us all at once, which help to add to the suspense. There is a paranormal element, but it honestly doesn't even feel like a paranormal story. You just get wrapped up in the bond that slowly grows between Sully and Iona, almost like tunnel vision.
A forewarning - this does NOT have a happy ending. It is dark and sad and just so phenomenal. This story will gut you. It will feel your soul and then rip your heart out.
