The fairies are very, very happy to present to you a book that's too interesting to miss!


Genre: Historical-fantasy romance

Publisher: Curiosity Quills Press

Date of Release­­: May 11, 2015

Cover Artist: DamonZa


She never asked for the undying loyalty of a necromancer.

1913. Austria-Hungary. Ardis knows better than to save a man on the battlefield. Even if he manages to be a charming bastard while bleeding out in the snow. She hasn’t survived this long as a mercenary without some common sense.

When she rescues Wendel, it isn’t because he’s devilishly handsome, but because he’s a necromancer. His touch can revive the dead, and Ardis worries he will return from the grave to hunt her down. Besides, a necromancer can be useful in this world on the brink of war.

A gentleman of questionable morals, Wendel drops to one knee and pledges his undying loyalty to Ardis. She resists falling for him, no matter how hot the tension smolders between them. Especially when she discovers Wendel’s scars run much deeper than his skin, and it might be too late to truly save him from himself.

A Rock Chick Fairy book review
A review copy was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

Unexpectedly romantic!

When I requested for this book, I thought I would just love it because of the action it promises. However, now I love it because of the characters' interaction! 

They're just... MFEO! MADE FOR EACH OTHER. ^_^ Now you might think that I'm just romanticizing their story, but no. They're truly a romantic pair!!

ARDIS, my darling mercenary, is a kickass girl who's known for her ruthlessness in battle. She ran from her past and is currently living with lots of blood in her hands, obviously because of her profession. She meets, ahem, MY WENDEL, who in so many ways, is a gentleman. However, she didn't start out knowing him like that. She thought he was something to be disgusted with, being a necromancer and all that. I'm just so glad that Wendel proved him wrong!

Wendel, Wendel, Wendel... Where do I even start?

MY Wendel is hot. Not just hot, but also dashing, charming, handsome in a refined way. He's such a catch and yes, HE'S MIINNEEE. #fangirlalert

Now that that's out of the way...

Wendel is the kind of hero that is vulnerable on the inside, but all charming and badass on the outside. He maybe your unconventional guy, but he is sweet most of the time. I like how he interacts with Ardis, like she's really a fine woman and not just a mercenary. I like how he took his oath seriously and I like how he was able to keep all of his promises to Ardis. Wendel might be such a mystery, but there's no deying that he's totally head over heels with Ardis and boy, he's not afraid of expressing it!

Our heroine on the other hand, isn't the same. With her past clouding her present, she has a lot of baggage that she holds on to. The twist here even made her life more complicated, so i forgive her for not being so expressive. However, she is truly loyal. I give you that. 

They fight off other umm.. creatures and people who want them both dead. They get so many encounters with groups of bad men that I honestly thought there wouldn't be enough romance. I was wrong and I was shocked because man... that ending! Okay okaayyy.. 


In this book, you'll find out just how amazing it can be when a mercenary meets her .. umm.. necromancer. 

Trust me! It's everything you never expected. The thrill, the action, the love.. even the drama! It all manages to make this amazing! :) Better than amazing, actually!


Their story continues!!!

Sometimes escape is impossible. Sometimes love isn't enough.

1913. Christmas Eve. Ardis hardly expects a quiet holiday with Wendel, between fleeing Constantinople and hiding from an ancient society of assassins. And they owe a debt to a certain archmage.

In Königsberg, Prussia, they work with Konstantin on the next evolution of Project Lazarus. Wendel once called Königsberg home, the city now besieged by the Russians and their clockwork engines of war. This may be Wendel’s last chance to save his family and find redemption, but he's tormented by nightmares and tempted by laudanum. Ardis fears her love isn’t enough to save Wendel. Her hands are full piloting the automatons, and she's terrified to tell him a secret of her own. Will they—and their love—survive the storms of war?
