“Then it is settled,” Felix declared. “Come hell or high water, when this is all over, at least one of us here will not make it out alive.”

When Bronwen Snow is pulled from her cottage in the middle of the night, she finds herself seeking the help of three mysterious boys who reside in an abandoned castle deep in the hillside. With only a hasty handwritten note and a vague sense of dread to guide her, Bronwen is forced to put her trust in the eccentric and willful Felix Cavara and his eternal curse – immortality.

I was asked for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.


Wow what a book!  I loved every minute.  There were a couple of "I didn't see that coming" moments that I liked.  The story line was well developed.  I loved the paranormal twist.  I really hated to see this book end.  I really enjoyed this book.

Bronwen is a young girl who lives with her grandmother.  Her grandmother has visions.  When one of those visions show Bronwen in danger, her grandmother gets her out of bed in the middle of the night.  She is sent to the castle with a letter.  The letter begs for protection of Ada's granddaughter, Bronwen.  What danger is Bronwen in?  What does she find at the castle?  Do those living at the castle protect her?

I highly recommend this book to anyone that likes YA paranormal.  This is the first book I have read by this author, but I definitely look forward to reading much more by her!  Thank you, Gabriella, for a great read!!

What a great book!  This is a wonderful book for YA.  I think my granddaughter, who is a young teen, will like it as much as I did. It is refreshing to read a book like this one.

I don't want to give away the story but I will say this.  It is about three boys who make an eternal mistake and the girl who saves them.

I really liked the view point of this author and her writing style. This is the first book of hers I have read and I hope it isn't the last.  Great job, Gabriella!
