Forbidden to cross the Elvin barrier into human lands, Brock cannot sate his curiosity. Cursed by a vampyre bite that forces him to feed on the life-essence of others, he is unable to touch another without taking their life. Chained by prophesy, he must find a witch, pierce her heart, and draw her blood for his cure.
Celeste must escape the monks who have held her prisoner for years. Her magic has been kept dormant by her captors. An ancient powerful Warloc craves her powers. If he succeeds in devouring her magic, she and the world will die.
When Brock falls in love with Celeste before realizing her demise is his cure, will love triumph over his desire to be healed? Will he risk everything to save her from a Warloc, an oath breaker, who also wants her dead?
(Blurb from Goodreads)
The best thing about reading a book, is when it’s not like anything you’ve read before. There have been times when I feel like I’m reading the same story over and over again in different books. This is not the case, and how refreshing that is.
The Garnet Dagger has everything you want in a fantasy story; elves, witches, magic blades, and an epic quest. And I loved the fact that although it was fantasy, I felt like it could have been historical with the way the setting was described. I felt like I could have been there myself.
Like the summary states (so I’m not giving anything away) I like how Brock is in the ultimate dilemma of killing Celeste to fulfill the prophecy and save his own life, or not killing her and forfeiting his life. It definitely makes the book that much better having such a conflict in it.
So if you’re looking for your next fantasy read, give The Garnet Dagger a try.
