Author's Note: The Sekten Series is a dark romance series that needs to be read in order. It is intended for mature audiences since there is a lot of graphic content, and scenes that make you uncomfortable and it might not be suitable for you if you are easily triggered. Some books will be darker than others, but all are triggering none the less. This is a dark world, so read at your own discretion.
Let me just tell you that if you are unsure about this book, read the preface. It gave me chills. It made me want to dive in, more than anything else I needed to do that day.
Then I dove in. It was a slow build to the story. At one point, I honestly felt like there was no connect to the preface. However...it did get there. Be patient and kind while reading. Not all masterpieces show their full potential from the beginning. It’s a slow burn. An even slower build, but when it gets there, it’s fire. Full blown, out of control burn that leaves your ashes in a heap.
I feel that I would have had a greater love for this book if we didn’t go backwards at 30%. Maybe if we started in the past, I would have loved it more. It felt disconnected. However, the more I read, the better it got. You learn about the past regarding Gideon, Daphne and Bas. There’s a love story waiting to happen, but can it? The Sekt is Daphne’s life and she may not allow anything to come between that and her heart. Book two to release next month!!
Claudia lives in the Chicagoland suburbs, and when she’s not busy chasing after her adorable little spawn, she’s fighting with the characters in her head. After not being able to keep up with them, she decided enough was enough and wrote her first novel. C. Lymari writes both sweet and dark romances that will give you all the feels. Her other talents include binge watching shows on Netflix and eating all kinds of chips.
