    A Lesson in Thorns, Wow just Wow

    A Lesson in Thorns by Sierra Simone is book one in her brand new series, Thornchapel. A Lesson in Thorns is like no book I ever read. It's gritty and raw with an unique story. A Lesson in Thorns put me through a rollercoaster of emotions and gave me all the feels. It's the story of six children. Rebecca, Delphine, Proserpina, Becket, St. Sebastian and Auden. They spent a summer together and that changes all their lives. Now, 12 years later they're back. They're all grown up and now the true story begins. The Queen of Suspense had me in knots at chapter two. And let me tell you , books like A Lesson in Thorns are the reason why I read. The characters are golden children, or outcasts, troubled, determined, unwanted or lonely. Sacrifices have to be made, some crave kink, some are playing games, all are pretending. It's a story filled with suspense, secrtes, longing, twists and turns that had me addicted from the start aand I was on the edge of my seat while reading this fantastic book. I wish I could give 7 stars. I highly, highly recommend A Lesson in Thorns and can't wait to read Feast of Sparks.

    All 5 Stars

    Well Sierra didn't disappoint, well maybe the only disappointment is that we have to wait til June for the next book. Want to know a secret? I felt DUMB throughout this whole book. I used the "look up" feature more often with this story than I have with all books combined by about 100x. But another secret, I LIKED IT. I liked learning new words. So Thank You. Thank you for expanding my vocabulary. Thank you for creating a world and using words not like other stories. Ok onto the book, I don't want to give any spoilers. But the one thing I was hoping for didn't happen, but I have a feeling it will within the next 3 books. While there was angst, it wasn't angsty if that makes any sort of sense. You could feel the tug and pull, the want and the holding back. You get answers, but are left with more questions. This story will make you think (see above where I had to look up words). At the end you are hurting for Poe, you are aching for Auden, you feel for Saint, you start to love Delphine, you are confused by Becket, and you want to learn more about Rebecca. ~I volunteered to read an advance copy.

    LOVED LOVED LOVED

    OMG. MY. MIND. IS. BLOWN. I am having trouble forming a coherent thought after finishing this book. All I keep thinking is just... WOW. A Lesson In Thorns is hands down one of the HOTTEST books I think I have EVER read. From start to finish I was just on fire reading this story. At first I found things hard to follow, and difficult to keep up with. However that changed quickly the more I read. Since this is only book one of four, I think some of the confusion was needed. Thornchapel cant give up all its secrets in the first book, what would be the fun in that. Each page pulled you deeper than the one before it. Each chapter only dragged you further and further, into it's secrets. I have never been so utterly consumed with a book, quite like I was this one. Everything about Thornchapel and it's characters left me absolutely captivated. I could not devour the pages quick enough. I read this book in one day. It was like I was obsessed and just could not stop reading. A Lesson in Thorns will haunt your mind, while devouring your soul. Get ready for the biggest book hangover of your life. Because Sierra is out to ruin you from everybody else. I feel like no matter what I read following that, it will not even begin to hold a candle. Thornchapel is the rollercoaster ride I never want to get off of. I just want to ride it over and over again. I have never seen a author capture such intense chemistry between characters like Sierra did with Auden, Delphine, Rebecca, Becket, St. Sebastian, and Proserpina. Something about each one of these characters draws you in. Each one brought something new to the story. Everytime I thought I could love one character more, another character would prove me wrong. I felt every character slowly claim a piece of my heart. And each one for their own reasons. I love Delphine for her out going and wild personality. I love Rebecca for her controlling, yet sensitive ways. I love Becket for his calming, yet mysterious ways. But like every book, you will always have your favorites. And in this case it was Proserpina, St. Sebastian and Auden. Something about them just intrigued me above the rest. Everything about that trio utterly consumed me. I could not get enough of them. They burned through my kindle like wildfire. I felt their every emotion sizzle and spark from the pages like a live wire. The feeling. The passion. The angst. They each brought was nothing short of mind blowing. I could not be more enchanted by characters if I tried. I just LOVED every explosive thing about them. *5 STARS* Will NEVER feel like enough stars for this book. I could give it a hundred, and it probably still wouldn't feel like enough. I am on the edge of my seat for the next installment. I just need SO. MUCH. MORE. A Lesson In Thorns WILL haunt your mind long after the pages end.

    Mesmerizing and seductive... a must read!

    Dark. Seductive. Haunting. Erotic. Enigmatic. Lies. Betrayals. Secrets. Obsession. Murder. This is the book in a nutshell. It all started with that unforgettable summer and after all these years still wouldn't let our characters go; that inexplicable pull of Thornchapel still haunts them even when they are far apart. This is my first read from the author and I have heard a lot of praises about her work. Upon seeing the cover of this book, I was hooked; drawn to it like a moth to a flame. I was pulled into the story just like our complicated and angst-ridden characters were drawn to the call and mysterious beauty of Thornchapel. The writing is exceptional. The story seduces you to let go of your beliefs and inhibitions loose as you embrace the inevitable. I deemed the slow build up necessary to lay the ground work for the succeeding installment, and for the beautiful unraveling of its characters and story. The amount of sexual tension in this book is off the charts, enough to power a nuclear ready to explode and annihilate everyone on its radius. I felt like I was running a fever with the way I burn for these characters' hot, intense, sexy, erotic moments.... and this is just the start. Oh boy. I guess I’ll just silently pine and waste away while I wait for book 2 on June *dramatically sighs*.
