RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - Master of Salt & Bones by Keri Lake

Release Date: April 22

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, her's the one who needs saving.

So this was my first Keri Lake read, and what an introduction! I have to admit that when I'm starting a new book, I immediately check to see how long it is, and I was a bit hesitant when I saw how long this particular book is, but once I got started, I found myself pulled into the story and didn't really think about how long the book is.

This story is told in dual POV, both in present time and flashbacks (during Lucian's narration). Both he and Isadora are broken in their own way; although Lucian is definitely the more broken between the two, given how his father treated him when he was younger. There is definitely a "Beauty and the Beast" feel to this book, with a lot more darkness spread from beginning to end. Not to mention the mystery of what happened to the wife and son a few years prior. There are several layers to this story and I enjoyed peeling back each one to see how everything would play out and whether or not Lucian would ever get a HEA.
