About the Book

Title: Belladonna

Author: Adalyn Grace

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy Romance
Publishing date: August 30th, 2022

Synopsis

New York Times bestselling author Adalyn Grace brings to life a highly romantic, Gothic-infused world of wealth, desire, and betrayal.

Orphaned as a baby, nineteen-year-old Signa has been raised by a string of guardians, each more interested in her wealth than her well-being—and each has met an untimely end. Her remaining relatives are the elusive Hawthornes, an eccentric family living at Thorn Grove, an estate both glittering and gloomy. Its patriarch mourns his late wife through wild parties, while his son grapples for control of the family’s waning reputation and his daughter suffers from a mysterious illness. But when their mother’s restless spirit appears claiming she was poisoned, Signa realizes that the family she depends on could be in grave danger and enlists the help of a surly stable boy to hunt down the killer.

However, Signa’s best chance of uncovering the murderer is an alliance with Death himself, a fascinating, dangerous shadow who has never been far from her side. Though he’s made her life a living hell, Death shows Signa that their growing connection may be more powerful—and more irresistible—than she ever dared imagine.

Review

This was so good. The writing is hauntingly beautiful. The opening prologue is one I will not forget. I thought the writing was done with such prose and the characters well developed. I enjoyed the fantasy and mystery elements.

Signa has had a rough upbringing that includes a trail of bodies. Every guardian she’s had has died from various causes and Signa believes she is responsible. When she learns about her connection to Death himself she can’t help but feel a earning to know about him and why he has chosen her to torment for as long as she can remember.

The relationship Signa has with death is definitely the most intriguing part of this novel. Each scene with the two of them is done so well and I definitely recommend the audio to really get a true feel for Death.

Death is not the only mysterious man in Signa’s current life. Silas claims to be a simple stable hand but his demeanor and dress leads Signa to believe he’s not who he says he is.

This was so so good and I can’t wait for more. I definitely recommend it! Adalyn Grace is quickly becoming an auto-buy author for me!
