Blog Tour & Review: The Necromancer’s Bride by Brianna Hale

The Necromancer's Bride cover
The Cover: I think this cover embodies The Necromancer’s Bride perfectly and it is exactly how I pictured Rhonda in my head. 

Basics: The Necromancer’s Bride was released on October 21st 2018 and is novella/66 pages long. Genre wise The Necromancer’s Bride belongs to standalone, novella, dark romance and dark fantasy romance. 

Description: When I was a child he brought me back from the brink of death. Since that day I have borne his mark, a black star in the center of my left palm. The villagers say it brands me as evil. I think it means something far worse. It marks me as his.

The disease that nearly killed me has returned to the village and children are dying. I’m the only one who dares to climb the mountain and learn his secrets. In exchange I’m to clean his house and help with his strange experiments, but Meremon wants more. He wants me. And it isn’t long before I discover that his demands are as twisted as his experiments.

Warning: This story is a dark fantasy romance with scenes of non-consent and dubious consent. Additionally, Meremon is a necromancer and enjoys unusual things. Some sex scenes might be strange or creepy for some readers. As always with Brianna Hale books, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily ever after. THE NECROMANCER’S BRIDE is a novella of 16,000 words.

Overall thoughts: Oh. My. Gosh! The Necromancer’s Bride by Brianna Hale was everything I wanted in a dark fantasy romance or spooky read! Hale created one of the best openings I have read that immediately had me hooked and wanting to know what the heck was going on. “It’s all right, Mama. I’m not afraid to die.” IMMEDIATELY hooked.

Rhona was very sick as a child, in fact everyone is apparently from mysterious illnesses due to people dumping horrible things in the river that has direct ties to their crops.  Everyone who gets sick dies, but not Rhonda. Her Father went up the mountain near the village where Meremon lives, the Necromancer. He saves her life but also marks her with an odd star on her hand. Years later, Rhonda is older and healthy but people in village are still dying. She only lived because her Father brought the Necromancer down the mountain, no one has ever visited him or asked for his help since.

Determined to save her siblings and other villagers, Rhona goes up the mountain for help and also for herself…why did Meremon the Necromancer mark her all those years ago? The answer she finds isn’t exactly what she’s been looking for but she can’t help the growing attraction between her the Necromancer.

The Necromancer’s Bride isn’t your typical dark fantasy romance because it does contain things that could be considered a bit off putting, but honestly I feel like a lot of elements in dark romances are off putting so for me I didn’t mind at all. The only issue I had with this book was that it was a novella and not a full book! I wanted more of Rhona and Meremon’s love story. Besides that I loved this book,  The Necromancer’s Bride is a great Halloween, October/spooky, dark fantasy read and if any of those genres are up your alley, I highly suggest you pick up it ASAP!

I am currently reading The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks duet by Max Monroe! This is my first Max Monroe book and I’m super excited to be reading it! 

Blurb: I’m Luciana Wright. Everyone calls me Lucky, but when it comes to love, I’m anything but. I have a long history of dating the wrong men.
You know the ones I’m talking about.

The beautiful, charming guys who are quite literally too good to be true. The ones who are impulsive in love and prefer short flings over long-term relationships. I’m talking about the jerks. The guys who taste so good, but are so very bad.

After going through the most ridiculous breakup in the history of breakups, I thought I’d learned my lesson. I officially put myself into jerk rehab and committed to changing my ways. But, let’s be real here, love is never that easy. Especially when an arrogant, charming, he-devil of a sexy alpha man gets involved.

Aussie accent. Tanned skin. Muscular, surfer bod. Gorgeous brown eyes. And the kind of sexy smile that brings women to their knees. Oh, did I mention that he’s also my best friend’s brother? Yeah. This story, my story, it’s a real doozy you guys. The day I stopped falling for jerks, I met Oliver Arsen—the biggest jerk of all.

What did you recently finish reading? The Necromancer’s Bride by Brianna Hale! Oh my goodness! This book was a novella but it completely blew my socks off! It is the perfect dark romance/Halloween read! 

Blurb: When I was a child he brought me back from the brink of death. Since that day I have borne his mark, a black star in the center of my left palm. The villagers say it brands me as evil. I think it means something far worse. It marks me as his.

The disease that nearly killed me has returned to the village and children are dying. I’m the only one who dares to climb the mountain and learn his secrets. In exchange I’m to clean his house and help with his strange experiments, but Meremon wants more. He wants me. And it isn’t long before I discover that his demands are as twisted as his experiments.

What do you think you’ll read next? I have been fortune enough to receive ARC’s of Royally Yours by Emma Chase and Long Road Home by Stacey Lynn! Once I’m finished with The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks duet I’ll be diving into these bad boys! I’m super excited! 

Royally Yours Blurb: Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco.

It’s a big deal. When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning. What she isn’t… is married. It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want.

Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty. Even Queens. Especially them.

** Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.

And a sacred promise keeps him there. To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure. Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever. Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story. This is theirs.

Pre-order Royally Yours here ←

Long Road Home Blurb: I left home ten years ago, promising myself I’d never return to the place where I had never been accepted. I was despised and ridiculed for circumstances completely beyond my control.

But when my grandmother passes away, I’m forced to return to Kansas. I will have to face everyone who hated me. But they’re not who I’m most afraid of. My biggest fear? Facing him.  Jordan Marx. The boy I once loved more than life itself. The boy who defended me from them. The boy I’d disappeared on, leaving him nothing more than a horrible nasty lie and hastily scribbled note.

When Jordan finds out the secret I have carried for so long, I’m in for the battle of my life.  Or so I thought. I might have wandered for years on a path riddled with thorns but with Jordan by my side, taking the long road home means more than reuniting with the only man I’ve ever loved. It might just mean finding myself, and the family I never thought I could ever have along the way.
