#Giveaway #Review of Shadows of Asphodel (Shadows of Asphodel #1) by @karenkincy #Thanks @CuriosityQuills

She never asked for the undying loyalty of a necromancer. 

1913. Austria-Hungary. Ardis knows better than to save a man on the battlefield. Even if he manages to be a charming bastard while bleeding out in the snow. She hasn’t survived this long as a mercenary without some common sense. 

When she rescues Wendel, it isn’t because he’s devilishly handsome, but because he’s a necromancer. His touch can revive the dead, and Ardis worries he will return from the grave to hunt her down. Besides, a necromancer can be useful in this world on the brink of war. 

A gentleman of questionable morals, Wendel drops to one knee and pledges his undying loyalty to Ardis. She resists falling for him, no matter how hot the tension smolders between them. Especially when she discovers Wendel’s scars run much deeper than his skin, and it might be too late to truly save him from himself.

Before I get into my review I have to say LOOK AT THAT COVER!!!  I die hard fell in love with this cover when it came in the mail.  

This one just blew me away.  With the unexpected romance that was especially romantic this one was a home run! The characters were just perfect for each other even though they are from very different worlds.  I loved that the female character in this one was the mercenary vs. the male.  It made the book so much better.  I love female heroines. Wendel was the amazing gentleman!  I loved how she met him in the beginning of the book!

I loved Shadows Of Asphodel and finished the book with quite a crush on Wendel! The characters are great and the plot whirled me along. The sequel, Storms Of Lazarus, was released here in the UK recently and I must get myself a copy :-)

I love this cover! It makes me want to find out what secrets she is keeping. The cover seems to tell part of a story, but you have to read the book to complete it.
