Childhood love, forbidden magic, and a goddess of death.

With one final task he become a lord of death, but will Mora let him go?

Now including the opening scene of Delphinium.


My review

5/5 Stars

The world-building within Larkspur is absolutely beautiful and so very, very well done that we can see into this Victorian world as if we’re there. With a unique magic system and twisted ambitions, this short story is a very compelling read that to me is very reminisce of Edgar Allen Poe. I can’t wait to see what the next volume has to offer!

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
