When a rich gentleman finds a beautiful young woman lying in the snow, on the brink of death, he takes her back to his house and, when she has recovered, employs her as a maid. Immediately Elira realizes that Anthony Luther is no ordinary man and nothing about the house she now lives in is as it seems, for Anthony is a powerful wizard. Inexplicably drawn together, they begin a tentative romance, but it’s not just Elira’s uncertainties and the rules of upper-class society which drive a wedge between them; rivalries and a precious family heirloom, a priceless necklace of unforeseen power handed down through generations, threaten not only the couple’s happiness, but also their lives and the safety of the people around them.
Four Boundless Stars
This was a cute story, the characters were well developed and the imagery was brilliant. I loved all the characters. I really loved with Elira, she was so young and innocent; I immediately felt like I should mother her, like Moira did, this is why I connected with her. Anthony, well he just sounded yummy from the start; seriously, who doesn’t want a man that owns a self-cleaning house? Hello! I’m here…
Though the characters and writing were great, I felt it was a bit “over-written;” it took way too long to get from point A to point B. I just felt this book could have been a lot shorter and the story would have been just as good, or better.
Overall, I liked No Rest for the Wicked and rate it with 4 Boundless Stars.
