The Blood of Caged Birds (Mortalsong #1)
Archaic secrets trembling to be told.
Can their love survive beneath the pressure?
Giselle Bonteque lives a tedious life knowing someday she’ll be wed to the man of her parents choosing. When her sister, Claire, arrives home to their grand Maison in the country, a thrilling bet between the sisters catapults her into the arms of Benjamin, a mysterious half-islander man who seems strangely familiar and sparks the only flame of passion she has ever felt.
Drawn into a passionate romance, ever more aware of the ticking of the clock, Giselle must make difficult decisions or risk losing Benjamin forever. But her problems are graver than she knows as sinister schemes loom around her.
Beyond this simple world of mantua gowns, lusting men, and the social elite, a world of dark magic abounds. The head of an ancient cabal continues to search for the one whose soul could be the key to immortality: hers.
With those who are prepared to do whatever it takes to find her, will Giselle find freedom from the expectations of society before destiny takes hold?
