What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Three messengers of the gods each hold a piece of my soul. I won’t let them claim my heart too.
My people are dying.
Our god has abandoned us, leaving us starving and weak. In a desperate attempt to save those I love, I offer up the ultimate sacrifice to our capricious deity.
He accepts my offering, and I forfeit my life. But when I arrive in the afterworld, a rival god who despises mine binds my soul to three beautiful, terrifying men—powerful beings he calls his messengers.
Callum, Echo, and Paris.
I’m little more than an annoyance to them, a lost soul their master has foisted upon them.
Still, the bond between us draws me toward them constantly, like a lodestone finding true north, and the more time I spend with these enigmatic men, the more confused my feelings become.
I hate them. I want them. I fear them. I need them.
But no matter what happens, I won’t let myself love them.
Sacrifice is the first book in the Her Soulkeepers series, a medium-burn reverse harem fantasy with steam, action, and romance that will melt your heart and your panties.
Thoughts on Sacrifice
I’ve read a lot of RH novels, but none quite like this. A sacrifice gone wrong? It’s old school myth buffeted in a fantasy world worthy of reading. Unique and rather mysterious, I’m interested in seeing where this goes.
- Unique setting and concept.
- Sage is strong, even though that strength is not always apparent.
- Good use of myth.
- The romance is delightfully slow.
- Could have benefited from multiple POV.
- Some parts were very slow.
First Person, Single POV
M for Mature
Character Age Range
My Final Verdict on Sacrifice
This is a series I will follow, though I am rather confused why the Author tagged this as a Medium Burn. To me, this is a slow burn, as they have no true sexual contact in Book 1 (there is one scene, but it’s… complicated?). Regardless, medium burn or slow, this is entertaining and I am eager to see where it goes. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
