Don't forget to enter the giveaway at the bottom!
Rorschet Salavreech was raised to believe he was unworthy of beauty until he met his student and soul mate Tangora Desjardins, a six-year-old girl who has stolen his bruised heart and brought him to his knees.
A delicate flower has been presented to someone who had only heard of it in stories and seen it in his dreams. How could he not gaze at it and wonder what it would feel like to touch it?

Until the bud reveals its colorful petals to him, he must keep his trembling claws away from it. But is it not worth the wait? After all, the most beautiful flower is the one you've waited for to bloom before your very eyes.


Sepulcher Most Divine

Here lies a little boy,
Covered by his sheets in dread and fear.
His heart will beat once more with joy,
When the footsteps he can no longer hear.

An angel came and helped him stand,
Broke his iron mask and bloody chains.
She did not shudder when she touched the hand
Of a corpse that no longer in its grave remains.

Then came a day when his flower they stole,
His waking demons he could not shun.
With no one to keep his spirit whole,
He became his father’s son.

Here lies a blessed man,
Bathed in light that shan’t cease to shine.
Wishing to stay for as long as he can
In the sepulcher most divine.

Vonnie's Thoughts on the Excerpt:

This poem is a little creepy and beautiful. It seems that the boy's innocence was taken away and was forced to grow up into a man so fast. It also shows that this boy's father was not a good man and eventually the boy turned into his father. Whatever happened, it doesn't sound good for the boy. This poem makes me wonder where in the book does it appear, if it's describing the plot, or if it's simply just a poem. I guess one has to read the book to find out. :)

  1. Thank you so much for participating in the book tour, Vonnie :D! I'm really glad you like the cover. The cover art was made by the talented Alex Heath and I did the typography myself. You've done an excellent job in interpreting the poem, by the way. It was actually written by the male protagonist whose father used to beat him as a child. He never showed any signs of aggression until the point when he found out something bad had happened to his student. I'm not going to go into great detail because I don't want to spoil anything, but the scene where he expresses the anger in him at that moment is one of my favorite scenes from the book. It's pretty dramatic and we discover just how awful his childhood was.

    1. You are very welcome, Claire!

      Yes, the cover is stunning and the poem is very intriguing. I hope to be able to read it soon!

    2. I'll email you a free copy! No strings attached! It's yours if you'd like to read it or not :D
