Summary from Goodreads: Bound as one to love, honor, or burn.

Two years ago, Louise le Blanc fled her coven and took shelter in the city of Cesarine, forsaking all magic and living off whatever she could steal. There, witches like Lou are hunted. They are feared. And they are burned.

Sworn to the Church as a Chasseur, Reid Diggory has lived his life by one principle: thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. His path was never meant to cross with Lou's, but a wicked stunt forces them into an impossible union—holy matrimony.

The war between witches and Church is an ancient one, and Lou's most dangerous enemies bring a fate worse than fire. Unable to ignore her growing feelings, yet powerless to change what she is, a choice must be made.

And love makes fools of us all.

Review: Every once and a while a book comes along that makes me laugh with glee. This was one of them. I absolutely loved the way the author painted this wonderful story. The characters had a lot of depth. You could feel the world taring Louise apart as she tries to hid who she is in a pit of snakes. Reid was the rock of the story. A character that believed so much in the world in which he lived, he couldn't see that it was all a lie. This was a wonderful play on witches, unique and glorious. I would recommend it to everyone. 

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
