When I was a little girl, I dreamed a handsome knight would come and rescue me from my wretched mother. He’d ride up on his white steed and break the curse I’ve been fated to carry since the day I was born.
Funny how things changed over time. How the fairy tale twisted into something far more crooked, darker than I ever imagined.
In reality, my knight is scarred and broken, living alone in a castle of bones that overlooks the sea. He isn’t searching for me. He never was.
Lucian Blackthorne is as cursed as I am, and equally shunned by the locals, the fishers of men, who believe him to be the devil in the flesh.
Perhaps he is, with the way his amber eyes draw me in, ignite me like an infernal blaze. And the sins he whispers in my ear are as wickedly intoxicating as the man himself.
Yet, his touch is heaven and his will is my weakness.
He calls us forbidden, an unsalvageable tragedy, with no happy end. Maybe we are. But in this story, he’s the one who needs saving.
Keri Lake gives you a story. Within that story are twists and turns so epic, that you can never imagine or expect what’s to come. I absolutely love the way that she tells a scene. So descriptive, so detailed and so involved. If there is a death scene, expect to feel that you are right there with the victim and experiencing what they are. I devour each and every book that is written by Keri. I know, without a doubt that I am going to fall in love with the characters and the plot with everything that is written. These are books that you want to read and have on your bookshelf at home. You’ll be thrilled to tell your friends that you have something amazing for them to read. That will be one more person hooked and awaiting her next release.
Master of Salt & Bones is definitely one of my favorite reads of 2020. The mystery...the suspense...the thrill of this book is beyond description. Lucian is not only powerful, but a bad guy with a heart of gold. The last thing he expected was to be attracted to his mother’s care giver. Isadora is young and beautiful, with a sassy mouth. It’s actually what pulls Lucian to her. She stands up for what she believes in and does not back down. She can only hope to pull his full personality out from the dark depths of his troubled soul. MoS&B is so amazingly written. You get your money’s worth with this book. It’s one the longest books that I have read to date. With the amount of detail, it’s no wonder it’s long. So amazing and I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us next!
Keri Lake is a dark romance writer who specializes in demon wrangling, vengeance dealing and wicked twists. Her stories are gritty, with antiheroes that walk the line of good and bad, and feisty heroines who bring them to their knees. When not penning books, she enjoys spending time with her husband, daughters, and their rebellious Labrador (who doesn’t retrieve a damn thing). She runs on strong coffee and alternative music, loves a good red wine, and has a slight addiction to dark chocolate.
