Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Review:

As soon as I read this blurb, I was like, count me in! Witchy is my name and witchy wars are my game! However, I wasn’t sure what I would get, but what I got is one of my favorite books of the year!

I loved both points of views! Lou was ambitious, perfectly flawed, spoke what was on her mind, and down right awesome. Reid was strong willed, innocent yet not innocent, and so dang swoony! And the chemistry between Lou and Reid was so freaking good! Don’t let me forget the side characters! Coco! Ansel! Beau! You three were beautifully created beings!

I must say, there were some amazing descriptions with the witchy things, and the world building was wonderful. There were twists, multiple ones in fact! And the writing was so addicting that I finished this huge masterpiece rather quickly for me! Now to wait for book 2 will be utter agony!
