This is one stop in the Pump Up Your Book Tour. Be sure to look for the other reviews, interviews for this really great Fantasy Novel!
This is a fantasy unlike any other I have read in a very long time. To give you an idea I read this entire book (all 414 pages) in ONE sitting. You may have noticed that I went missing one entire day--well this is what had me so occupied. I just could not put it down--my cat even tried to butt it out of my hands and at one point tried to bite the pages--it did not work! The story just keeps getting better every page you turn.
It is essentially the story of a baseborn healer and a cursed highborn who though adversaries throughout the book end up helping each other. Their adventures will have you gasping and in some cases praying for them. The ending kind of leaves you hanging which makes me HOPE that there will be a sequel to this one-I will be sure to get it!
I don't think you can actually purchase the book until October 2013 but the e-book is out! If you want to see if you would want to read this book I have put a link to twightlight times books so you can read the 1st 10 chapters. There is also a trailer which you really want to view down below as well.
About the Book: (From the back cover)
Lusielle's bleak but orderly life as a remedy mixer is shattered when her husband betrays her and the king's magistrate sentences her to die for a crime she didn't commit. She's on the pyre, about to be burned alive, when a stranger breaks through the crowd and rescues her from the flames.
Brennus, the embittered Lord of Laonia, is no white knight. He's trapped in a curse that has killed his kin and doomed his people. His only chance to defeat the curse is to find a woman bearing the Goddess's birthmark--and then kill her in the foulest of ways. Lusielle bears such a mark.
Stalked by intrigue and confounded by the forbidden passion floaring between them, predator and prey must come together to defeat not only the vile curse, but also the curse giver who has already conjured their demise.
This Book can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and All Romance

About the Author: ( from her Website )
Dora Machado is the award winning author of the epic fantasy Stonewiser series. She holds a master's degree in business administration and graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a degree in history from Georgetown University. She was born in Michigan and grew up in the Dominican Republic, where she developed a bilingual fascination for writing, a preference for history, and a taste for Merengue. After a lifetime of straddling such compelling but different worlds, fantasy is a natural fit to her stories. She enjoys long and winding walks, traveling, and connecting with the amazingly clever readers who share in her mind's adventures. She lives in Florida with her indulging husband and three very opinionated cats.
