“Then it is settled,” Felix declared. “Come hell or high water, when this is all over, at least one of us here will not make it out alive.”
When Bronwen Snow is pulled from her cottage in the middle of the night, she finds herself seeking the help of three mysterious boys who reside in an abandoned castle deep in the hillside. With only a hasty handwritten note and a vague sense of dread to guide her, Bronwen is forced to put her trust in the eccentric and willful Felix Cavara and his eternal curse – immortality.

This book….. Let me dry my tears first. (Sobs continuously) The book is so beautifully written. I stay clear from reading e-books. Because they hurt my eyes a lot along with headaches. But when I got hold of this amazing e-book I couldn’t dare resist myself. Well, I am grateful to my every crazy mind.
The story begins with Bronwen, a normal girl leading her normal life. Well, not so normal life cause she lived in a lonely place without any neighbour, with her grandmother. And not so normal girl cause obviously if she was so normal she wouldn’t have had to run from her cottage in the middle of night towards the castle, searching for someone she had no clue about. All she knew was that she trusted Ada (her grandmother) with her life. Her ever alone solitude life suddenly takes an unexpected turn when she enters the castle and meets the three boys – Felix, Alistair and Loki. It’s as if fate had decided upon changing all of their lives forever for good. As the story proceeds, their lives get intertwined, painful secrets reveal themselves and all of their fight together to protect Bronwen from the Hunter.
Questions arise : Why is the hunter looking for Bronwen? What had happened to the three boys? What is their curse? What is the cure? Is love possible between Bronwen and Felix – between a mortal and an immortal? What had fate in store for them?
The ending though… The ending…. I feel so sad… So very sad yet so very happy for it is painful yet beautiful. Even the rose cannot exist without a thorn.
