I was given this collection by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Catherine for the opportunity to once again delve into this world.
Story 1: Condemned to Die - 4 stars
This is our introduction to Vera Williams and her guardian Zane. This is the story that made me fall in love with them. Hands down. This is by far a fantastic story of revenge for love, and I continue to re-read it as often as I can because I adore the relationship between Vera and Zane. There is a lot more I could say about this one, but I'm not for one to give away spoilers. I would highly recommend delving into this world and falling in love with this couple.
Story 2: Destined to Live - 4 Stars
This story is Vera's last life. There has to be a loophole. There has to be something that can be done. Zane finds a loophole. However, the demon does what he does best and proceeds to torment Vera, making her relive each time she'd taken her life...all twelve times. Then as he is in control, ensures that she wants to end her life thus wasting her last life. I am all the more in love with Zane and Vera.
Story 3: Fated to Return - 4.5 Stars
OH. EM. GEE. I did not expect that conclusion. Deceptive blurb concerning Vera and Zane's hunt for answers only added to the wonderfulness of this story. The groundskeeper...interesting little thing that turned into a surprise. The battle that happened, perhaps could have been a touch grander - but was still awesome none the less. Despite a couple of things that came up that made me briefly go huh, this book ended up getting the highest rating of the three. I highly recommend this series to anyone who wants a first glimpse into the work of Catherine Stovall.
Thank you again for the opportunity to read and review this series! Absolutely loved every moment of it!
