Blurb:
I’m an outcast and a loner, named for death itself. Fate wasn’t supposed to have plans for me.

But then she came back—the girl I once kissed in a thorn-covered chapel in the woods. She came back, and I could no more resist her than I could pry out my own heart. And by some trick of fate, she wants me as much as I want her. The only problem? She also wants the man who owns Thornchapel, Auden Guest.

And so do I.

Eight years ago, I did something to Auden, something terrible. He hurt me back the only way he knew how, and so here we are: our hatred seasoned with pain and my loneliness seasoned with longing. The only thing we can agree on is Proserpina Markham, and she wants us to find a way to be together—all three of us.

If Auden wants to earn her as his submissive, then he has to earn me as well.

But with the discovery of bones behind the altar and the carnal revel of Beltane fast approaching, it’s becoming clear that Thornchapel’s secrets are much deeper and older than any of us could have ever guessed. And no matter how bright and merry a feast of sparks may be, it’s always followed by ashes.

And darkness.

 

 

Excerpt:
Shame, hot and prickling, needles everywhere at my face and chest and belly as I begin to bend down to the floor. The cool air that caresses my pussy is now everywhere as the position begins to expose my most secret flesh, and there’s no pretending away the reality of what I’m doing. I’m doing something I’ve never done before, I’m offering up the filthiest part of me for inspection, and despite everything the three of us have shared in the past twenty-four hours, I’m flooded with shame. It’s real shame now, not play-shame, and my safe word floats to the top of my mind, a buoy in the clear waters.

Convivificat.

I don’t want to safe out right now, I’m nowhere near the edge, but it’s nice to have it there all the same. Reassuring. There’s nothing they can do that I can’t stop.

And anyway, this is who I am—who I’ve been growing into ever since I found the words to define it.

 

 

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

What was that ending? What was that ending?

I knew that Feast Of Sparks was going to leave me with more questions than answers, seeing that Thornchapel is a 6-book series. And this one was FULL of angst! And I knew there would be a cliffhanger. But never did I expect that St. Sebastian would uncover what he uncovered at the very end!

This tale is full of twists and turns for these six friends, but the plot focuses a lot on the triangle between Poe, Saint and Auden. We finally learn why Auden and Saint have such contempt for one another, and I am so glad that it wasn’t dragged out until book 6! Sierra sprinkles in past chapters from 8 years ago with the present-day storyline, and I understood these two tormented men so much more than I did after finishing A Lesson In Thorns.

Saint is such a haunted soul, and it’s heartbreaking because he’s such a loyal guy. He’s had a much rougher life than the others in the group, but he’s sweet and loyal, even if he doesn’t think he is. Auden’s arrogance and aloofness took on a new meaning once I found out the history between them. While the guys and Poe figure out how to be a thruple, I felt the story was more about Auden/Saint.

Then there’s the sex. This book is not for the faint of heart! There’s a reason Sierra Simone is an erotica queen, and we get it at least twice in here.

Im fascinated by the secrets that the parents of these friends shared, and February is much too far away to get the next book in this series!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
