The Lebrus Stone-JANE EYRE meets TWILIGHT
Reached #4 on 14/01/17.
When eighteen-year-old orphan, Crystal Valdez, accepts an invitation to the small town of Blacksville, West Virginia, she hopes to have a summer to remember and a chance to learn more about her parents, to also get to know the family she never knew existed.
But the Lockes begin to act strange and erratic, eerie movements in the night fuel her vivid and gruesome nightmares. To complicate her summer further, she becomes attracted to the menacing yet handsome Cray Locke: her non blood related cousin.
He seems determined to keep his distance. The only bonus to her trip seems to be the housekeeper and gardener.
And when a local informs Crystal of the secrets buried at Thorncrest Manor, the kind consisting of a forbidden relationship and a war between hidden worlds, and witchcraft, she must decide whom to trust. Even if it means leaving behind those she has come to love.
A planned trilogy, but can also be a standalone book.
Comments it's had so far:
The Lebrus Stone is not what I had expected, in a good way I promise! From the moment I started reading it was hard to put it down. It's different. The writer has stepped out of the box and changed things up a bit.
At times the writing is outstanding with clear descriptions and it totally sucked me in.
Graphic violence and gore is prevalent throughout the second half of the book. I found those parts hard to read. The Lebrus Stone was an intense experience.
The atmosphere at the family home had a real gloomy, Beautiful Creatures-esque air to it. Desire zings from the pages and I found myself excited about what would happen when the two leads were together next.
