Kara Magari is about to discover a beautiful world full of terrifying things—Ourea.
Kara, a college student still reeling from her mother’s recent death, has no idea the hidden world of Ourea even exists until a freak storm traps her in a sunken library. With no way out, she opens an ancient book of magic called the Grimoire and unwittingly becomes its master, which means Kara now wields the cursed book’s untamed power. Discovered by Ourea’s royalty, she becomes an unwilling pawn in a generations-old conflict—a war intensified by her arrival. In this world of chilling creatures and betrayal, Kara shouldn’t trust anyone… but she’s being hunted and can’t survive on her own. She drops her guard when Braeden, a native soldier with a dark secret, vows to keep her safe. And though she doesn’t know it, her growing attraction to him may just be her undoing.
For twelve years, Braeden Drakonin has lived a lie. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. Though he begins to care for this human girl, there is something he wants more. He wants the Grimoire.
I really enjoyed this book! Fantasy always seems to captivate me. I just can never get enough of the world building because it’s so fantastic and really does let you escape to another place. Lichgates does just that and I loved getting lost in it’s world.
My heart just aches for Kara in the world she’s thrown into and what she has to go throw because of it. It made me happy to see her carry on with such strength though. On the other side, I was worried when we first meet Braeden, but I grew to love him. I love his strength and protectiveness. I only hope the best for these two in future books!
Overall, I so enjoyed this story and I definitely want all the pets that Kara gets to have!! I want a Flick! Can’t wait to read the next one!
