"Heed this child of thorn,
From whence they came,
'Twas the darkness born.
Unite with beasts of gore and shade,
In an intimate embrace with those forbade.
Lay thou head upon his chest,
Your dark hair entangles in his claws as you rest.
The horned one knows his bride best."
There are secrets in our world, dark secrets. Magic has been lost to humans. We no longer see the fairies on the field nor the gnomes in our gardens. But they're still there.
The formidable Wendigo, tall and horrific in appearance.
The cunning Omen, with his deceiving beauty and sinister appetites.
The grouchy Grim, damned devourer of souls.
The princely Unseelie, with secrets he adores and a court he abhors. .
The brooding Magpie, cursed by a gift made from love.
The Hawthornes are an eclectic family in the magical world. The cursed ones that even those of their own kind shrivel away from. Content with each other's company, this never bothered them. The only thing missing is a woman to love, a bride.
It is up to the Council of Evermore to select brides the Families can choose from. It is of the upmost importance that the selection is carefully thought out, else, all will fail.
The Hawthorne family is the one family the Council of Evermore has dreaded for centuries. Led by the forsaken Wendigo, they are a group of beasts none wish to inflict on any bride.
But they have no choice.
It is law. Each family must be given equal opportunity.
Four girls with four stories and one choice to be made.
One of them must be chosen by the Hawthornes and they choose our dear protagonist.
(A/n: This book will not be about four different girls. After the introductions are made, one will be the protagonist. Just thought I should clarify.)
