Once upon a time, six children stumbled upon a wild place hidden deep in the moors, shrouded by secrets and fog. There we played a game among the roses and the thorns that would change us forever, that would follow us the rest of our lives. A game that ended with a hard kiss in the rain and tattered flower petals fluttering from above…
And twelve years later, we’re back.
I’m not going to dream of a forgotten place covered in thorns every night.
I won’t be enchanted by Thornchapel and its glossy, glamorous people. I’m not going to fall in love or have my heart torn in two.
I’m not telling the truth.
Because as this place slowly tightens its coil of secrets and thorns around us, as we uncover the knotted mysteries that grow here, the six of us begin to unravel into filthy, holy pleasure and pain. Fulfilling the promise we once made as children in those whispering ruins, and awakening a fate that will either anoint us or leave us in ashes…
WHAT THE HECK DID I JUST READ?! Seriously, I’ve never in my life read anything like A Lesson in Thorns. It was downright sexy, mysterious, forbidden, and so much more. Sierra Simone created a world unlike anything I’ve come across before, and I honestly don’t know what to think or how to feel about all of it. I truly didn’t know what to expect going into A Lesson in Thorns, but I couldn’t have been more surprised. The storyline and characters threw me for a loop and took me on a roller coaster ride from beginning to end. Sierra Simone wove a tale so incredibly unique and entertaining, and I really loved her prose. She took me on quite the journey in the first book in the Thornchapel series, and I’m looking forward to reading more about the dynamic between Auden, Proserpina, St. Sebastian, Rebecca, Delphine, and Becket.
