Howdy booklovers 💙 welcome to my stop on the tour for That Dark Infinity by Kate Pentecost, hosted by TBR and Beyond Tours! You can view the tour schedule here
By night, the Ankou is a legendary, permanently young mercenary. By day, a witch’s curse leaves him no more than bones. Caught in an unending cycle of death and resurrection, the Ankou wants only to find the death that has been prophesied for him, especially once he begins to rot while he’s still alive….
After the kingdom of Kaer-Ise is sacked, Flora, loyal handmaiden to the princess, is assaulted and left for dead. As the sole survivor of the massacre, Flora wants desperately to find the princess she served. When the Ankou agrees to help her find the princess, and to train her in exchange for her help in breaking his curse, she accepts. But how can she kill an immortal? Especially one whom she is slowly growing to understand—and maybe even to love?
Together, they will solve mysteries, battle monsters, break curses, and race not only against time, but against fate itself.
Lets start with the cover, it is STUNNING. It promises the perfect spooky season read and fits in nicely with a spooky aesthetic. The pacing is good and the story progresses well. Some of the dialogue was a little stiff for me, said was over used but really that’s my only gripe. I reeeeeally liked The Ankou’s (Lazarus) character and the dynamics of his curse and how as a consequence of his curse he’s severely misunderstood. Overall I really enjoyed it and i think fans of Lakesedge will love it too!
