Her Sweetest Downfall Ophelia's Journey By Rebecca Hamilton

Goodreads Summary:

Ophelia's been successful at hiding her true identity, until the mark of the serpent appears on her neck—a death sentence, should it be seen by anyone in her town. Hiding the mark might save her from falling victim to the witch hunts of her era, but the scorching sensation it carries can’t be ignored.

When the mysterious Ethan is sent to collect her for a life of something more, she learns concealing the mark is the least of her concerns. She’s destined to do a new task—to join a dark, supernatural world and protect the future of people she may never meet.

What she doesn’t know—what she learns too late—is that her initiation won’t be complete until she kills the man who’s captured her heart

My review:

When Ophelia was first introduced into the story in the first book I had wished to read more about her. To know why she was helping Sophia so it was very awesome that Rebecca Hamilton brought us this book that told us Ophelia's journey how she got to the Maltorim and how she knew about Sophia.

The whole story was perfectly written from when Ophelia discovers the mark on her skin, getting send to deliver a letter that will never arrive to her destination because she was lured to where the music of her calling took her. To how Ophelia with the help of Ethan and Lenore managed to get her into the Maltorim to gain their trust and take her under their wing so she would be there for the day the girl she is to wait for arrives. One of the reasons why I read Rebecca Hamilton's books is because I love her writing style. It was a really easy to read story. Also a very enjoyable story with beautiful romance that in occasions made me cry but I am so very happy that nothing terrible happened because there was one moment I really thought something terrible was about to happen. I am happy happy it didn't. So yes I was very satisfied with this short but great book concentrated on Ophelia's story and can't wait to read the next book
