Lucy Tribiana might be going mad. Benjamin Ratskeller should be lying, entombed and still, deep under the frozen earth. Nightly, though, Lucy watches the impossible: this young man from her past—months dead— comes to stand before her moonlit window, silently requesting entrance.
When disbelief and sleepless nights finally drive Lucy to answer his appeal, she can’t begin to suspect the strange tales Ben will bring with him out of the cold winter night. Even more, she can’t imagine the bizarre and ancient forces that have already begun to coalesce around their meeting.
Spanning centuries but told in three nights, The Severing Kiss is a story of secrets, betrayal, intrigue, madness, and undying lust.
