I bring to you a book spotlight for Evanescent, a novel by Gabrielle Lepore.
“Then it is settled,” Felix declared. “Come hell or high water, when this is all over, at least one of us here will not make it out alive.”
When Bronwen Snow is pulled from her cottage in the middle of the night, she finds herself seeking the help of three mysterious boys who reside in an abandoned castle deep in the hillside. With only a hasty handwritten note and a vague sense of dread to guide her, Bronwen is forced to put her trust in the eccentric and willful Felix Cavara and his eternal curse – immortality.
“May I see?” he purred, extending his hand towards the letter.
Bronwen clutched the envelope to her chest. “It’s for Felix.”
“I am Felix,” he said. “Congratulations, you’ve found me.”
Bronwen took a step backwards. “You’re Felix? That’s not what you said a minute ago,” she challenged. Actually, she’d expected Felix to be… well, older.
“Yes, but that was when I was trying to get rid of you. Now I want my letter.” He held out his palm steadily.
Bronwen tensed. What choice did she have? Grudgingly, she handed over the letter.
Without missing a beat, Felix tore the envelope and tossed it over his shoulder. He hastily unfolded the note and began reading. At first his expression was one of mild interest, but then he paused and looked up at Bronwen with a smirk.
“You are Bronwen Snow?” he asked, waving the letter at her.
“Yes,” she replied.
“And you want me to protect you?”
“I…” So that was what the letter had said? “I don’t know.”
Felix laughed. “Are you quite mad?” His eyes twinkled in amusement, glowing as red as the oil lamps’ flames.
“I’m starting to think so,” Bronwen muttered.
“In all my years I’ve never seen anything so…” he grinned down at the letter, “absurd.”
