When I was little, other children called me a monster.
A painting proved them right.
A lifetime of cruel taunts and heartbreak has taught Aurelia to hide, to not get too close to anyone. A painter and gallery docent, her only solace is in the art that can’t stare back. When a new piece arrives, depicting an angelic figure who shares the physical features she’s always thought of as monstrous, Aurelia searches for the artist, determined to get the answers her mother has long-refused to provide.
But Aurelia isn’t the only one searching; there are others who want the artist—and the truth—silenced. She’s attacked by figures from the painting, fierce warriors with wings and sharpened blades. Shaken and bloody, Aurelia manages to escape with her life but finds herself hunted by the Iyarri, who are anything but angels. As she comes to terms with her connection to them, Aurelia is drawn deeper into the heart of a millennia-old struggle. If she’s not careful, the consequences will tear her body, her heart, and the Iyarri in two.

I’ve been reading fantasy, for as long as I’ve been reading books. And for all the books that I’ve read, this is a favourite and it is unique! It’s not a copy if everything you’ve read before. It’s a whole new world, with great characters and an awesome story. The pages flows by in no time and you can really picture, the beautiful landscapes, art and culture that’s part of the book. I can’t recommend it enough!
A page turner for sure! Had a hard time putting this book down and I received it in the winter so it was the perfect way to pass the cold days indoors with a cup of the color changing tea Melissa sells as well.
