Synopsis

Clandestina is a realm of secrets, fairies, and dark magics. Among the nobles there is talk of a goddess of death, and a forbidden magic she grants to those that follow her-- cræft that can heal injuries that should be fatal or even bring back the dead. But she asks for much in return; blood and sometimes even life itself.

Pierre Salvador has just returned to court after finishing his studies and becoming a surgeon. But as he flirts with his childhood friend Elizabeth Anne, Mora, The Lady of Death, waits for him.

      The style chosen was in third person and executed very well, and there's not much to critique about it either.

      The story and characters were interesting and really glued my butt to the sofa as I was reading. The characters are dynamic and feel very much alive. The author explained a few concepts rather well, I love it when the author is able to relate fantasy elements to the real world, connecting magic with science, and giving magical spells a basis in things we know.

      There's not much to say about grammar, nothing really affected my reading experience, but I could spot a few things that looked weird (but English isn't my first language so my grammar might be a bit wonky in some areas).
