SPOILER-FREE REVIEW

“I will have you even in death, little witch.  I am your beast. I am your madness. And you, you’re my afterlife.”

Gothikana by RuNyx is our first book by this Author and -wow- what an introduction! It was a feast of eerie darkness, a menacing atmosphere, steamy passion, and intriguing characters. We absolutely loved this gothic romance with an otherworldly feel. Compelling from start to finish with an addictive sinister undertone, Gothikana was literally on fire! In many ways, despite this not being paranormal, it reminded us of those types of paranormal books we used to love set at haunted boarding schools.

“You want to know who am? I am your madness. I’m in your head, in your blood, in your very veins. I’ve claimed you before anything else ever could. Your body, your heart, your mind, your fucking soul, it’s all mine. Your hunger is mine to feed, your madness is mine to tame.”

It all begins with a prophecy by an old blind woman about an old castle, many deaths, and purple eyes. The castle is the magnificently gated and hidden Verenmore Castle, a University that sits high on a hill shrouded in legends of the strange and mysterious. Steeped in rumours of violence, death, and disappearances. Hiding macabre secrets and a sinister darkness. At the heart of the castle is the enigmatic, menacing and ‘devil-like’, Professor Vad Deverell. A striking man who lives in the shadows and fills every room he enters with a darkness and that compelling sexual magnetism of danger and uncontrolled heat. The unique, endearing, and introverted, Corvina Clemm never stood a chance when she was invited to join the University. Two complex souls collide in this dark and erotic, almost fairy-tale-like story as they try to unravel a mystery of legends.

“You’re the mountain I build my castle on, brick by brick,” she whispered to him, her eyes stinging. “You stand, I soar. You crack, I crumble.”

The connection between a dark compelling anti-hero with the silver streak in his hair and the purple-eyed raven-haired heroine was intense, their sexual chemistry singed the pages. This fabulously written haunting story swallowed us whole, although we do wish that some of the loose ends had been tied up! Gothikana is filled with passion, suspense, drama, and heat; we highly recommend this standalone. Just be mindful of the Author’s trigger warnings, also stay away from spoiler reviews, as the twists will knock you sideways!

“Witch,” he murmured…
“Devil,” She breathed…

Synopsis

An unusual girl. An enigmatic man. An ancient castle. What could go wrong?

An outcast her entire life, Corvina Clemm is left adrift after losing her mother. When she receives the admission letter from the mysterious University of Verenmore, she accepts it as a sign from the universe. The last thing she expects though is an olden, secluded castle on top of a mountain riddled with secrets, deceit, and death.

An enigma his entire life, Vad Deverell likes being a closed book but knowing exactly everything that happens in the university. A part-time professor working on his thesis, Vad has been around long enough to know the dangers the castle possesses.
And he knows the moment his paths cross with Corvina, she’s dangerous to everything that he is.

They shouldn’t have caught each other’s eye. They cannot be. But a chill-inducing century-old mystery forces them to collide. People have disappeared every five years for over a hundred years, and Corvina is getting clues to unraveling it all, and Vad needs to keep an eye on her.

And so begins a tale of the mystique, the morbid, the macabre, and a deep love that blossoms in the unlikeliest of places.
