Summary

Her touch is death...her love is worse. 

For as long as she can remember, Rose has been a monster. Cursed by a man who would one day become one of the most feared creatures on the earth, one of the future Alpha werewolves. Alister Marcus. 

For hundreds of years she has roamed the earth, living apart from humanity, watching from afar. Her skin and the briar vines that serve as both her protectors her tormentors, are poison. It is an instant death sentence to anyone, or anything, that comes in contact with her or her vines. She longs for human contact, or the contact of any living thing, but knows that it can never happen. 

She strikes at evil from the shadows, known by many names to humans over the years, like Lady Death. But now the time of Gathering of the Avatars has come, can she learn what it is to be part of a group, of a family again with a huge battle looming? And what of her love? Cursed to an endless sleep?

Another amazing addition to the Urban Fairytales!

This was really great. We got to experience Rose, and witness all her internal damage from living hundreds of years with no human contact, after being cursed. She joins with the other avatars, thinking that they will be able to end her suffering.
But, these twisted fairytales never go how you think.
Erik Schubach has done it again.

Love this series!!!

If you want a good, lighthearted, and smut free lesbian and women power book, this series is for you!!

I hope the entire series is converted to Audio!! Hollie Jackson is incredible at creating different character personalities and voices!! She takes Erick's characters and gives them life. I have listened to this book and the others in the series hundreds of times and they continue to be my favorite.

Great character

Rose is one tortured and scary soul. She was brought to life well by Hollie and you can really feel the years of loss and desperation, then the healing and strength. Great addition to the series, I love the interaction with the established characters from the first 3 books. Rose struggles with how to communicate and act with other people after so long, sometimes funny and sometimes sad. Finally, of course, the enduring love for her shining soulmate. Erik is the best! Buy his books and his audios!
