Description

The entire scene is riddled with frustrating misconceptions and out-of-date language about "purity" and virginity and hymens. A Soul to Keep is the first book in the Duskwalker Brides series, and it is written by an Australian author - Opal Reyne.

Known as a harbringer of bad omens and blamed for Demons eating her family, Reia is shunned by her entire village. When the next offering is due and the monsterous Duskwalker is seen heading their way, her village offers her an impossible choice: to be thrown into the prison cells, or allow herself to be sacrificed to a faceless monster. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. Imagine writing the sentence ‘They came in many sizes, which informed their prey if the monster in front of them would guarantee their death or not.Duskwalker Brides a series that features a very real monster who never turns into a handsome prince. The dynamic between Orpheus and Reia is interesting (we know he won't eat her, but he sure gets close to it), and it was fun to see which parts of The Ancient Magus' Bride the author decided to work into the story and what world-building was original. I mean I would have had more sympathy for her if she hadn’t gone that route, but really revenge was quite a rational desire for her, so the fact that she is made out to be totally evil (rather than just traumatized and a bit of a bitch) bothered me. I also want to mention that I was disappointed (and a little befuddled) by the author's approach to the first intimate scene.

In romance, when a main character is held captive by the other main character, readers know in real life it is not romantic, attractive, or good-hearted. wouldn't have been as tedious if i actually felt some chemistry between the mcs, but sadly i didn't. A Soul to Keep is one slow burn romance between a Duskwalker (imagine Elias from TAMB, furry body, wolf skeleton for the head and Impala's horns on the top. This doesn't have mindnumbing world building, or multiple family units with names you can't pronounce, a confusing magic system or generic bad guys. He became a love-sick puppy with massive separation anxiety, he had no personality except to exist to please Reia.I still don’t know, but what would have happened in the story if Belle had fucked the Beast before he became a human. Don't pretend that you've never wanted to be railed by some human eating, dark entity that has a skull for a face - you saw that cover, you knew what you were getting yourself into, and you still chose to open this book and read. I of course have an interest in a certain appendage and let me just say I wasn’t disappointed and that too felt very original. This was cute as all hell - Beauty and the Beast vibes but unexpectedly HOT 🔥🔥🔥 - and it takes place in a remarkably well-crafted fantasy world.

Why wouldn't a woman, after being taken from her home where he'd just slaughtered all of her neighbors, muster up the courage to say no? However, I know if I had been reading this story, I would have skimmed A LOT because after a while, it did become redundant and wasn't truly necessary for the plot. I never felt like the story dragged, and I would have loved more time before the “happily ever after”.I enjoyed the cute progression of their friendship and their inevitable love story, and I particularly liked that Reia is determined to be self-sufficient.
