Status: Finished  |  Genre: Fantasy  |  House: Booksie Classic
This is going to be a Gothic story viewed from my perspective as the main character. Preferring the traditional setting it will tell of unreciprocated love, loyalty and the plight of whether to spend an eternity with one 'man' in the dark world of persistant night. Depending on people I've obviously never met before, as well as dealing with a whole new way of life, I also discover that I am blessed with gifts of the occult. However, the lord and master decides on the powers I am able to utilise and only he has the ability to control everyone and everything.
Is the decision to cross over the right one or have I been manipulated
for an entirely sinister reason?
I hope I'm not going to spend an infinity regretting my choice...
(Please do not make the mistake of thinking this is a romance novel!)
