There are monsters in the world.
When Violeta Graceling arrives at haunted Lakesedge estate, she expects to find a monster. She knows the terrifying rumours about Rowan Sylvanan, who drowned his entire family when he was a boy. But neither the estate nor the monster are what they seem.
There are monsters in the woods.
As Leta falls for Rowan, she discovers he is bound to the Lord Under, the sinister death god lurking in the black waters of the lake. A creature to whom Leta is inexplicably drawn . . .
There’s a monster in the shadows, and now it knows my name.
To save Rowan, and herself, Leta must confront the darkness in her past, which includes unravelling the mystery of her connection to the Lord Under.
Clipstone has written such an amazing story. I loved the setting and the characters as you got to know them throughout the story.
I really enjoyed this dark gothic fantasy. I don’t typically read dark fantasy but after reading Lakesedge I want to dive right in.
The magic and romance in the book was fantastic with the inclusion of the death god and his underworld.
This is a book I’ll definitely read again!
