Serena knows a few simple things. She will always be owned by a warlock. She will never have freedom. She will always do what her warlock wishes, regardless of how inane, frivolous, or cruel it is. And if she doesn’t follow the rules, she will be tarnished. Spelled to be bald, inked, and barren for the rest of her life—worth less than the shadow she casts.
Then her ownership is won by a barbarian from another country. With the uncertainty that comes from belonging to a new warlock, Serena questions if being tarnished is really worse than being owned by a barbarian, and tempts fate by breaking the rules. When he looks the other way instead of punishing her, she discovers a new world. The more she ventures into the forbidden, the more she learns of love and a freedom just out of reach. Serena longs for both. But in a society where women are only ever property, hoping for more could be deadly.
Rating: I will be giving this book a 2 out of 5 stars. After reading what they synopsis had to offer I was very excited to pick this book up. However, as I was reading the book I was starting to get bored with it and forgot what the synopsis said or even why I was reading this book in the first place. I ended up getting frustrated and looked back at the synopsis to try and remind myself why I was reading it. Throughout the entire book I was also getting very upset with the main character Serena. She would gather the courage to take one step forward, she would then reverse and take ten steps back and have to start all over again. Overall, it was an OK book and it was something different for me because I usually do not read books about witches and warlock. This was defiantly not what I expected it to be.
