Amulet of Darkness




Undeniable Love bound them together… Evil Forces conspired to keep them apart. In a land where creatures shape-shift, where a blind man sees and where believing in your gut’s instinct can save a life, a Herculean hero matches wits with a beautiful huntress. Cyrenne’s life is ledged in servitude to the deity of the forest. She believes in obeying the deities, remaining chaste and that her abilities, as a warrior, are better than any man. When she catches the eye of the Storm Deity, and refuses his offer of immortality, he punishes her by besetting fear upon her. Unable to come to the rescue of her comrades, they die. Cyrenne swears she shall not return home until she proves herself worthy and she sets out on a journey of redemption. Gareth has always hated the Upland deities. He has no use for a woman dedicated to them, and who looks better in armor than most men. He believes his gut instinct is always right, the deities are always wrong and a woman’s place is in the home, any home but his. When the spirited woman with the iron resolve saves his life, they set out on a journey that takes them through uncharted territories where love teeters on the edge of danger.


I have to say this book went way beyond what I had expected! I savored this novel as one does a good dessert. Two ill-fated lovers meet by fate as they travel into different mystical realms searching for different reasons. They encounter many evil creatures beyond their wildest dreams .The gods keep trying to keep them apart but their passion- and I mean passion keep them on a dangerous course to be together. Gareth is a `mixling' one created from a deity and a mortal.I fell in love with this mythical hunk warrior with the author's vivid descriptions of his hard chiseled body,bravery and the way he could make passionate love to Cyrene. Cyrene is a warrior with virginal innocence but granted the strength of a lioness. There is a surprise Gareth and readers will learn in the end which will only lead to more mystery and suspense. I loved the ending of this book, however I surely hope Author Marianne Petit will bring back Gareth and Cyrene for more adventures.


The story and the characters kept me so captivated! Her vivid descriptions were so intense, she left little to image!! Loved reading this book!
