Synopsis from Goodreads:

Cynthia has always hidden from her father’s hexes behind her older sister. When her family gains independence unheard of for women, she’s relieved that her days of harsh punishments are over. But as her seventeenth birthday approaches—the typical age to be sold to a new master—death threats endanger her sisters. She now faces two options: run or meet society’s expectations.

For once, Cynthia isn’t going to let her older sister shield her from the problem. She’s going to prove to herself, her sisters, and society that her family isn’t a threat to their traditions. She willingly chooses to be purchased by a new master. A bold step that takes her somewhere she never thought she would go and to a man she might possibly fall in love with. With his help, she may just find a way to save her sisters while discovering how to stand up for herself. If she lives long enough.

My Review:

What a fantastic journey. Falor has created a vivid world for her characters to live in. Her picturesque descriptions meld right into the narrative giving her readers an entirely unique platform to journey through. Falor’s tone mixes eloquence with realism in a natural manner that makes this novel stand out. I found myself holding my breath, trying to guess what would happen next. My heart went out to the characters and my nerves were on edge with the plot. It was fantastic.

The characters in this one come to life even more than in the previous novel. Falor’s character development allows you to get to know these individuals on a very personal level. You get to know their hopes & their dreams, their fears and their worries. At the same time, they are developed like real individuals. You never feel like you’ve read their biography, but rather that you’ve actually met them.

Overall, this novel was fantastically captivating. I couldn’t put it down. I’d definitely recommend it to others and cannot wait for more from this author.
