Liam MacGregor is cursed.
Haunted by the wails of fantastical Bean Sidhes and labeled a demon by
the villagers of Dòchas, Liam has accepted that things will never get
better for him—until a wealthy heiress named Annabel Leighton arrives on
the island and Liam’s fate is changed forever.
With Anna, Liam
finally finds the happiness he has always been denied; but, the violent,
mythical Otherworlders, who inhabit the island and the sea around it,
have other plans. They make a wager on the couple’s love, testing its
strength through a series of cruel obstacles. But the tragedies draw
Liam and Anna even closer. Frustrated, the creatures put the couple
through one last trial—and this time it’s not only their love that’s in
danger of being destroyed.
Based on Edgar Allan Poe’s chilling poem Annabel Lee, Mary Lindsey creates a frighteningly beautiful gothic novel that glorifies the power of true love.
Why I'm Waiting on It:
I love Edgar Allan Poe, and this is my favorite Edgar Allan Poe poem. I used to have a quote from it hanging in my room. I can't wait to see how Lindsey interprets this. I enjoyed her first book Shattered Souls, so I'm hoping I will enjoy this one as much.
What are you waiting on?
