Synopsis

I don't see dead people.

I see you.
I see every incarnation of you.
I see the history of your soul.
I can see your aura soaked in the blood of your previous lives.
Most people are inherently good or evil.
Some flit between darkness and light.
Few can change the fabric of their essence; it's a fight that most are too weak to win.
He was once darkness.
An evil so pure that his very soul is black and yet I am drawn to him like a moth to a flame.
Some days, I feel like I am drowning, the waves of my feelings stealing the very air from my lungs.
Other days, I feel nothing at all.
I'm unsure which is worse; gasping for air or dying from this thirst.
Can you learn to breathe underwater when you find someone worth drowning for?


Feyness is a dark standalone.

Readers of a sensitive disposition may want to step away from the book.
Step away, nothing to see here.
Readers who like to dance on the dark side, come on in and enjoy the ride.

BETUL'S REVIEW

**ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review**


"I may not wear a collar and lead, but I am just as much a prisoner; owned, bartered, dead inside."


Feyness is the first book I read by ES Carter but it definitely won't be my last! I was hooked right away. I started reading the book and I got so excited because I just knew this book would be one crazy ride. The bar was set high for me from the beginning. I am pleased to announce that this book met my expectations. It was darker than I expected, which I am really happy about. Because I get disappointed with a lot of dark romances, where I am expecting dark and twisted characters but end up with normal characters that just don't do it for me. This can be because I read a lot of really dark books so my hard limits and needs are up higher than the regular reader. Dark means different things to different readers.

"I am snow white, and he is the poisoned apple, and despite this knowledge, right here, right now, I would die for just one bite of flesh."

Let's talk about our main character Faye. Who is being married off to a twisted killer by her evil father. And let me tell you her dad is one sick bastard! She is being married off to Cole who is definitely NOT a good guy. There were scenes in this book that had me cringing because they were so ruthless and horrific. The author definitely has a dark side to her. Cole wants to break, hurt and feast on her flesh. I love that we have dual POV, because I love getting into the heads of these dark characters. 

"I'm not a hearts and flowers man. If I ever offer her a heart, it will be warm and still beating..."

There are a couple of flashbacks that were heartbreaking and explains why Cole is the way he is. It also shows what Faye has gone through in her past, which was pretty sick too. My heart broke for both characters in these moments. What I love most about Faye is that even though she had no real freedom and has been through some really traumatic events, she is still very strong. She didn't let what happened to her break her. Even though Cole is a dark character, there is a light inside all his darkness. I can't blame him for ending up the way he did. Cole and Faye are a perfect match. His darkness doesn't push her away, she embraces it! In a lot of dark romance I get annoyed by the female character because they play hard to get and it unnecessary lengthens the book. I like straight forward characters and in this book all of them are that.

"I want to obey this man. I need to please him and not only because I fear his wrath but because he has somehow bound me to him. In some sick and twisted way, I crave his approval."

There were so many great quotes I highlighted, too bad I can't include all of them in here. But hopefully they give you some view into what kind of story this is. It was very dark. The only down side I can find to this story is the length. For me it could've been much longer. I was missing seeing the characters more as a couple. I wanted more development in their relationship. I think that is the reason why I couldn't 100% connect with them. I also wanted more intimate scenes, normally there are too many of them in dark romances but in this book I wanted more of them. The plot was great and very original. I REALLY really loved. I wish there were more books like Feyness. My dark and twisted mind needs to be fed by these type of stories.

"Hope is a sick thing. It is even more vile than admitting that the monster in front of me turns me on."

This book is a stand-alone but I am hoping the author will be persuaded to either write a sequel for Faye and Cole or give two side characters their own story. I especially want Cole's brother Luke to get his own book because he was even darker than Cole. But Grim was the worst. That guy is messed up on a whole another level!

"I want him to use me as he sees fit, even if it hurts; even if it hurts so badly that I never crave his touch again."
