I could barely put this book down to go eat or do any other thing necessary to life.
This is one of those tense dramas which keep you on the edge of your seat. The hold "fate" has on Wickham, Darcy and Elizabeth is one which may stir dreams of an unpleasant nature. The author shows the depth of her research into legends and paranormal activities in this spine tingling tale...which just happens to also have the deep love of one of our favorite couples throughout the pages.
And it is a love which Darcy swears to leave unconsummated so as to end a curse.
Arawn Benning’s and Ellender D’Arcy’s eerily sad tale is immortalized in a song, a favorite song (“Of all the songs in the world she could have chosen, why did she choose his song?”) which Elizabeth Bennet sings in Fitzwilliam’s presence, not realizing that these lovers are ancestors and that another one not mentioned in the song’s tale lives on to haunt generation upon generation of first-born Darcy males who pass the “curse” on.
Read of the Meryton Assembly, Jane becoming ill at Netherfield and then a late night meeting in the library as E. seeks a book. Elizabeth has been warned by Aunt Gardiner of mysterious murders occurring on the Pemberley estate and of suspicions about the man himself. But Elizabeth’s instincts push her to become better acquainted with Mr. Darcy and make her own judgments. So with discussions and a kiss and then an offer to teach “his” Elizabeth to ride Darcy reaches a point at which he must explain why he will never marry. She is embedded in his soul and their time together in Hertfordshire will be the only period during which they can acknowledge their attachment…but only to and with each other.
Elizabeth also persuades Darcy to teach her sword play…and they meet in an abandoned manor to take up lessons. By this point both are railing at fate, which condemns their love to never know fulfillment.
Wickham joins the militia and pours his lies into Elizabeth’s ear but here we read of a very sage woman who plays the innocent so as to determine just why he seems so hell bent on destroying Darcy’s reputation after she has witnessed their cold exchange upon meeting on the streets of Meryton.
Subsequently several grotesquely mutilated bodies show up in the area. Elizabeth now learns of the relationship Wickham has with the Darcy family. And as Wickham seeks to learn what the two mean to each other they know to deny any interest much less an attachment. However Wickham has a trick up his sleeve and in using it Elizabeth betrays the secret and Mr. Bennet comes upon a situation of compromise.
Oh, dear reader, we are now reading of how ODC is placed in an impossible situation but rather than wait for events to unfold Elizabeth takes the stag by the horns and researches to find an answer to the curse. Her presence in Darcy’s life makes him aware of powers he has never explored but which are now a necessity for survival and for love to reach its pinnacle.
Colonel Damon Fitzwilliam and Mrs. Annesley play significant roles here while Georgiana and Lydia meet with evil forces in varying ways.
This is an excellent story even with its stretch into the paranormal realm. I highly recommend it to other lovers of JAFF.
