This was a short, good and creepy Halloween time book. Rhona has been shunned ever since the Necromancer saved her as a child and she ended up with his mark. She ends up going to him to help the kids in her village and he’s pleased his bride came to him. Meremon was actually kind of sweet! He just wanted his bride to be happy and satisfied. I thought it was a well written dark romance. I just wish it would’ve been longer!
Title: The Necromancer’s Bride
Author: Brianna Hale
Genre: Dark Fantasy Romance
When I was a child he brought me back from the brink of death. Since that day I have borne his mark, a black star in the center of my left palm. The villagers say it brands me as evil. I think it means something far worse. It marks me as his.
The disease that nearly killed me has returned to the village and children are dying. I’m the only one who dares to climb the mountain and learn his secrets. In exchange I’m to clean his house and help with his strange experiments, but Meremon wants more. He wants me. And it isn’t long before I discover that his demands are as twisted as his experiments.
Warning: This story is a dark fantasy romance with scenes of non-consent and dubious consent. Additionally, Meremon is a necromancer and enjoys unusual things. Some sex scenes might be strange or creepy for some readers.
