Today I am reviewing a highly anticipated release of mine Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin. I got the immense pleasure of meeting Shelby Mahurin at a book talk with Epic Reads and she was so sweet. I am so excited to share my thoughts on the book with all of you.
Bound as one to love, honor, or burn.
Two years ago, Louise le Blanc fled her coven and took shelter in the city of Cesarine, forsaking all magic and living off whatever she could steal. There, witches like Lou are hunted. They are feared. And they are burned.
Sworn to the Church as a Chasseur, Reid Diggory has lived his life by one principle: thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. His path was never meant to cross with Lou’s, but a wicked stunt forces them into an impossible union—holy matrimony.
The war between witches and Church is an ancient one, and Lou’s most dangerous enemies bring a fate worse than fire. Unable to ignore her growing feelings, yet powerless to change what she is, a choice must be made.
And love makes fools of us all.
Not quite sure how to articulate my thoughts after finishing this book but I will try my best. Serpent and Dove was an absolute masterpiece. It had been on my anticipated reads list for over a year now and I was afraid to start it, worrying it wouldn’t live up to the hype or my own personal (and high) expectations. This book not only met my expectations but surpassed them. Lou’s wit, humor, and strength inspired me. As did Reid’s loyalty and dedication to doing what was right. I loved Ansel’s innocence and Coco’s brazenness. Each twist and turn left me breathless and excited. I dare you to read this book and not fall in love, it’s impossible. I do not know how I will wait for the next installment, Blood & Honey. I guess I’ll have to start rereading 🙂
XOXO Shelby Grace
