Title: Larkspur, A Necromancer’s Romance (The Larkspur Series 1)
Author: V.M. Jaskiernia
Childhood love, forbidden magic, and a goddess of death.
A romance is reignited when Pierre Salvador returns to court, now a surgeon and ready to take up his duties as duc. But his love, family, and friends are unaware of his dealings with Mora, the Lady of Death. Striving to know all the physical and mystical means of controlling life, and ending it, he became a suitor to the daimon in return for her knowledge and power. With one final task he become a lord of death, but will Mora let him go?
Now including the opening scene of Delphinium.
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!
