I received an ebook of this novella in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Dani René!
WOW! What an emotionally packed dark romance novella. It was absolutely riveting and captivating. René is able to capture such darkness, yet such light at the same time within her characters. She makes them multifaceted and complex. Makes them human.
Kael and Skyla have so much to overcome in this novella. They are people who want to forget the past. People who want to heal from it. People who want to redeem themselves in some way. It's hard to fathom how René achieved all of this is such a small amount of words. It truly demonstrates how concise, and efficient her writing is.
I loved the references to phoenixes throughout the novel - they're my favourite mythical creature. They were so relevant to the story and added poeticism to the novella. The whole symbolism of the phoenix was a great metaphor for Skyla.
