SYNOPSIS: Esmeralda Lawton is sick of the big city. “Ralda” was betrayed until trust became a theoretical concept. So it’s a dream come true when she buys an old estate, complete with historic cemetery. Okay, she isn’t excited about the cemetery, but she’s strangely drawn to the estate. Atonement, Tennessee, a quaint town, seems like the perfect place for her. However, her new life isn’t quiet.
The house is full of antiques. Some have extraordinary properties — a brass bed causes strange dreams, and a mirror shows the truth of who you are.
A mysterious neighbor secretly watches over the graveyard. There’s more to him than meets the eye, but what? Then there’s Gwydion, owner of Fae’s Flowers. She stubbornly resists her feelings for him.
Ralda suspects that people are drawn to Atonement to, well — atone. She wonders what sins led her there. However, her ancestress made the mistakes.
Atonement is home to more than humans. Supernaturals go there too. Some have fallen far.
This urban fantasy, seasoned with Celtic mythology, comes with a side-order of mystery. Are you sad to see the “Sookie Stackhouse” stories end? Make a visit to Atonement, Tennessee!
REVIEW: This has to be one of the most intriguing stories I’ve ever read; I didn’t want it to end! The characters are fascinating and draw you in. I especially love, Lillith, the cat… The way Teagan brings across Lillith’s pov without disrupting the flow of everything going on is nothing short of amazing.
The story is full of mystery with dark fantasy weaved in very intricately. Best of all, nothing is too predictable and there are plenty of surprises.
As already stated, I didn’t want this story to end, and I can’t wait to see what Teagan Genevieve brings out next… A solid five-star work!
