Description from the publisher:

Before the beginning, before the spell, before the prophecy, there was a curse. A curse to love.
Julie has always loved Jarak, but what if he didn't feel the same? That was something she couldn't accept. Especially since she was getting ready to die for a witch who wasn't even born yet.


After Julie's death, Jarak vowed to find Esmerelda and use her to awaken his beloved, but doing what is needed means he has to hurt his only family and lie to everyone about Esmerelda and her whereabouts.


Could he ruin the love his brother has to keep his own for the woman who held his heart, even in death? He will never know his true feelings if he doesn't.


This is the prequel to a series with two other releases.  They do need to be read in order.  You do not need to have read the other two books prior to reading this prequel.  I have not read the other two books in this series, but never felt lost as to who the characters were.


In order to save the world, Julie and four other witches will need to die during a spell to protect the baby who will actually save the world.  The baby hasn’t even been conceived yet.  Got that?  Julie loves Jarak, but is worried that he can’t really love a plain-Jane like herself, so she prepares a love potion.  She binds him to her so that he can’t love anyone else until her true death.  Jarak’s brother, Ian, loves the baby, Esmeralda, again – before she’s even conceived!  This is the twisted reality for immortals with precognitive prophecies.  It makes sense and is perfectly natural to them.


The characters in this book are so richly described and brought to life.  Julie and I would be great friends.  I think we would understand each other.  Though Jarak honestly loves her, Julie is so reluctant to believe, to trust.  I get this.  The fear of future abandonment can and has led to some pretty stupid decisions for her and for me.  I know we are not alone in this.  Will we learn from our pasts?  Will we trust in the future?  I hope so!


I loved this story.  As a prequel, it has done its job.  It has hooked at least one new reader.  I need to know what happens next to this amazing group of people. 


This is the first book that I have read from Ms. Polish.  It will not be the last!
