Two Hearts. One Curse.
Once upon a time, in anger and desperation, a witch cursed Fate. It was not without consequence…
“Some things once damaged, cannot be made whole again. I fear I am one of those things.”
Cursed at birth, Mirren has grown up watching her loved ones suffer with worry, wondering when Death will come for her. Just as she begins to stretch her wings and seek out the future she never thought she’d have by accepting the honor of becoming
Cauldron City’s emissary to the Kingdom of Nautilus, the curse takes root and her heart begins to falter…
In a moment of righteous fury, Mirren binds Fate into human flesh so that he will feel what it is to live and love and have it all ripped away. To know pain so deep, nothing and no one can ease it.
She assumes her magic, like her heart, is too weak to do as she commands until the night Fate finds her, rage simmering in his dark eyes as he demands she break her spell. He claims he never knew she existed, proposing that someone or something hid her from his sight, then vows to uncover who is truly responsible for her misery and make them pay for every second. In return, all she must do is unbind him.
If only she knew how… If only her heart wasn’t failing…
Their futures are uncertain, their presents interwoven. When Mirren tries to break the binding curse, she nearly dies, and Fate without his full power is unable to heal her. He must find a way to keep her heart beating, and she must find a way to break the spell. Not all curses die with their makers; some become eternal. The repercussions, should Fate be forever bound, are unspeakable.
Casey Bond lives on a rural farm in West Virginia with her husband and their two beautiful daughters. She writes phoenixes – gloriously flawed and morally gray characters that fiercely rise from the ashes of their circumstances. World building is one of her favorite hobbies, along with stamping metal jewelry, swimming, and enjoying the beauty of nature. She thinks thunderstorms are better than coffee and that watching a meteor shower is the closest thing to magic you might ever see. She’s a firm believer that every amazing book needs a world you want to wrap yourself in, a character you want to win, and a love you would fight for.
Casey is the award-winning author of When Wishes Bleed, Gravebriar, and House of Eclipses.
