Feast Of Sparks by Sierra Simone-Blog Tour


FEAST OF SPARKS (Thornchapel #2) by Sierra Simone 
Release Date: August 1st 
Cover Designer: Hang Le 
Photographer: Regina Wamba


I’m an outcast and a loner, named for death itself. Fate wasn’t supposed to have plans for me.

But then she came back—the girl I once kissed in a thorn-covered chapel in the woods. She came back, and I could no more resist her than I could pry out my own heart. And by some trick of fate, she wants me as much as I want her. The only problem? She also wants the man who owns Thornchapel, Auden Guest.

And so do I.

Eight years ago, I did something to Auden, something terrible. He hurt me back the only way he knew how, and so here we are: our hatred seasoned with pain and my loneliness seasoned with longing. The only thing we can agree on is Proserpina Markham, and she wants us to find a way to be together—all three of us. 

If Auden wants to earn her as his submissive, then he has to earn me as well.

But with the discovery of bones behind the altar and the carnal revel of Beltane fast approaching, it’s becoming clear that Thornchapel’s secrets are much deeper and older than any of us could have ever guessed. And no matter how bright and merry a feast of sparks may be, it’s always followed by ashes. 

And darkness.


Google Play: COMING SOON 

Well, ok. Wow. I wanted this book something fierce after finishing A Lesson In Thorns. And while I absolutely want the next book, I'm almost glad it's out in 2020 so I can have some extra time to process this.

It's difficult to review this without spoilers. This is not a standalone, do not try and jump into this book. You need to read A Lesson In Thorns first, then move on to this.

One of the things I loved about this book was delving inside of St. Sebastian's head. I loved getting to know more of him-both in the past and the present. I think he's so incredibly layered and complex, and the way he's written is just beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting him.

This story is complex but so well written. I was fully engrossed in it from start to finish. I'm not a big fan of angst-but there are certain Authors where I just have to read it and Sierra Simone is one of them. I was just fascinated with this story.

Again, this isn't a standalone-go read A Lesson In Thorns then continue on with this. There's a cliffhanger here-and I will say, I wasn't shocked by it but it's a hell of a spot to end on.

I enjoyed this book and would recommend it.

Well. That cliffhanger was...mean.

Very mean.

But, the rest of the book? Hot, angsty, and well-written. It was right in line with the first one and begins where the first one ended.

It's also a difficult book to review. I enjoyed it. It's gripping, the characters are compelling. There are places where it's a bit of a dense read, but that's not an issue as it still flows well.

As is generally my rule when it comes to books in a trilogy or series, I am not really going to talk about what happens, as it's a significant possibility for accidental spoilers.

So, I will say I enjoyed this title and I recommend it.

Also, it's not a standalone. You need to have read the first one.

Shame, hot and prickling, needles everywhere at my face and chest and belly as I begin to bend down to the floor. The cool air that caresses my pussy is now everywhere as the position begins to expose my most secret flesh, and there’s no pretending away the reality of what I’m doing. I’m doing something I’ve never done before, I’m offering up the filthiest part of me for inspection, and despite everything the three of us have shared in the past twenty-four hours, I’m flooded with shame. It’s real shame now, not play-shame, and my safe word floats to the top of my mind, a buoy in the clear waters.


I don’t want to safe out right now, I’m nowhere near the edge, but it’s nice to have it there all the same. Reassuring. There’s nothing they can do that I can’t stop.

And anyway, this is who I am—who I’ve been growing into ever since I found the words to define it.
