5 CURSED CROWNS
Fables & Other Lies is NOTHING like Claire has written before. Mysterious and utterly captivating, it is a magnificent story that intertwines the traditional aspects of a gothic storytelling with a contemporary romance novel!
I honestly don’t even know what to say about this story. The plot line is completely original, filled to the brim with interesting characters, local folklore, a rich culture of a fictional island, and heaps of romance.
The characters are intertwined in unexpected ways, and while I don’t want to ruin one thing for readers, know that Claire Contreras delivers a story that has a crafted a romance the truly defies all the odds put in front of them. It is a love that truly epitomizes sacrifice and love in all forms.
When it comes to the story line, expect the unexpected. It has the mysterious elements of a gothic romance novel: the women in danger, the supernatural (not PNR) components, the folklore, the isolated castles, etc., but it is so much more than this. The gothic aspect of the book almost fades and acts as a secondary character, a complete entity of itself, in the story and the future they fight so hard for. Just know this, I was sitting at the end of this book stunned, an empty feeling in my stomach, because I didn’t want it to end.
Fables & Other Lies is without a doubt one of my favorite Claire Contreras books. Unique and enthralling, this story, the characters, and the world she created will completely captivate you from the first page. If you were ever to take a chance on a new trope, a new author, a new book, THIS IS THE ONE.
Do you believe in curses?
I never did.
Not until that fated night, six years ago, when I sat in The Devil’s Chair and made a wish.
Not until it came true.
Not until I met River Caliban himself, heir to a fortune of curses. My fated sworn enemy.
I knew I should have stayed away from him. I should have run the other way when he called out my name, when he flashed that sinful smile of his, but instead, I walked toward him, leaving the light behind. Instead, I go against all reason, against all warning, and attended the gala of the year at his dark, allegedly haunted home at the top of the hill.
The moment I step foot inside I know I’m in trouble, but there’s something about River that magnetizes me, reels me in, and when he asks for the impossible, I find it impossible to turn him away.
