It was supposed to be an easy article about Cain Archer.
Never did I think it would lead me straight into the arms of a serial killer.
When the magazine I worked for sent me to write a piece on The Elysian, and the recluse architect who created it, I didn’t know what to expect.
It certainly wasn’t him.
He was supposed to be cold and cruel, but to me, he was intoxicating. Magnetic. And impossible to quit.
The deeper I fell, the harder it became to ignore that inner voice, screaming that darkness followed Cain.
I wanted to be wrong.
Maybe it was all in my head.
But I needed to find the answers.
Nothing prepared me for what I discovered…
What if the person you took into your bed isn’t at all what he seemed? What if he’s the monster you’ve been searching for?
3 Heart Review by Ashley
Confession time: Dark romance is not my thing. But there was something about the blurb of Here Lies North that made me want to give it a go. And for it, it was ok. The opening had me hooked but then after that, things slowed down a bit and it took a while for me to get back into it.
I get it, Ava Harrison was building this world that I couldn't help but want to get lost in. The imagery was vivid and I could see myself in those woods. That being said, I feel like there was so much effort put into making The Elysian pop, that the connection between Layla and Cain got lost a bit.
But whoa! Things took a dark and dangerous turn during the final quarter of the book. I liked Layla's pursuit of the truth. Even at the risk of her own safety. And trying to figure out exactly how Cain fit into it all had my head spinning with every new fact learned. Talk about intense. I felt winded after finishing this unconventional love story.
