Blog Tour Review: Earl of Darkness (Heirs of Kilronan) by Alix Rickloff
The magic she tries to hide . . .
Born a lady, but reduced to surviving in the slums of Dublin, Catriona O’Connell has been hired to steal a mysterious book from Aidan Douglas, Earl of Kilronan. But Cat is secretly Other, an age-old mixture of Fey and human—something Aidan recognizes immediately when he surprises the lovely young burglar in his library, about to steal a magical diary.
. . . is the magic he desperately wants.
From the moment Aidan sees her, Cat’s spirited beauty enchants him, but her uncanny abilities are what he truly needs, for Cat can understand the mystical language in the diary he inherited from his murdered father. So Aidan makes an offer: translate the book or be thrown in prison as a thief. And as Cat slowly deciphers each page, she and Aidan are drawn together by passion . . . and into the violence of the Other world that is the Kilronan legacy. Can they defeat those who seek the book, or are their lives in even greater danger than their hearts?
There is one word I can use to describe this book perfectly - delicious! The dynamic characters and unrelenting plot make for one hell of a book! My advice, make sure you have lots of time to read because once you start, you won't stop. Earl of Darkness has a little bit of everything - suspense, mystery and a lot of steamy romance. Five stars!
