A Lesson in Thorns (#1)

ALIT paperback mock.png

Once upon a time, six children stumbled upon a wild place hidden deep in the moors, shrouded by secrets and fog.

There we played a game among the roses and the thorns that would change us forever, that would follow us the rest of our lives.

A game that ended with a hard kiss in the rain and tattered flower petals fluttering from above…

And twelve years later, we’re back. 

The heir.
The dreamer.
The priest.
The genius.
The socialite.
The saint.

I’m not going to dream of a forgotten place covered in thorns every night.

I won’t be enchanted by Thornchapel and its glossy, glamorous people. I’m not going to fall in love or have my heart torn in two.

I’m not telling the truth. 

Because as this place slowly tightens its coil of secrets and thorns around us, as we uncover the knotted mysteries that grow here, the six of us begin to unravel into filthy, holy pleasure and pain.

Fulfilling the promise we once made as children in those whispering ruins, and awakening a fate that will either anoint us or leave us in ashes…

Hypnotizing. Captivating. Spell binding.
All enrapturing...this isn’t just a story you read.
It’s one that unravels before your eyes with every turn of the page.
