First Read July 2019Few things compare to that feeling you get after finishing a book that lived up to your expectations Ever since I read the blurb of this book I knew I was going to love this and I WAS NOT DISSAPOINTEDIt had everything I adore addictive easy writing enemies to lovers marriage of convenience witchwitch hunter romance slow burn intricate magical system heart warming female friendship morally grey characters inner battle of right and wrongIn the land of Belterra witches are burned at the stake and the Chasseur Witchhunters with the Archbishop as their leader are ruthless Their number one rule Thou shalt not suffer a witch to liveTwo years ago Lou left her coven for reasons I shan t go into and was forced to live a life of suppressing her magical nature and living in constant vigilence She has to do what she can to survive That being lie steal and kill if necessary For life is hard in the city of Cesarine especially for a woman She s managed to live for two years undetected She was careful up until one burglary gone wrong set the wheels in motion With the Chasseur on her tail and enemies of her past close on her heels Lou slips up again and ends up in a compromising position with the Captain of the Chasseur The Archbishop comes up with a solution Lou can either go to prison for the rest of her life or she can marry the Captain and save his virtuous reputation Lou being the smart girl she is chooses marriage to the handsome Captain Diggory Being married to a Chasseur also grants her the protection she desperately needs from those who also hunt herReid Diggory is a dedicated witch hunter Despite his views on witches he is honorable and loyal It was such a pleasure reading about him He is so set in his ways and it was amazing to see him loosen up and changeThe beginning was really funny as neither of them trusted the other and they were always bickering Watching as Reid and Lou s relationship slowly blossomed how they opened up and became than two people stuck in an unwanted marriage was so beautiful I knew who you were I knew what you believed and I fell in love with you anyway Their relationship reminded me so much of Matthias and Nina from Six of Crows So if you loved those two you re gonna love thisI d actually tag this as of a New Adult than YA A warning for the youngins or for anyone not comfortable with it there is an explicit sex scene Kinda like ACOMAF The romance is a big part of this story but Lou has a part to play in the war between humans and witches and we re always made aware of what could happen if Lou s enemies were to find her This whole story revolves around the Church against the Witches I liked that neither side was portrayed as comepletly good or comepletly bad Each side despicable a twisted perversion of what should ve been Each side suffering Each side capable of great evil And then there was meI looked around at the worshippers once the men and women who pleaded for mercy and cried for my blood on the same breath How could both be in their heartsOne of the most important things for me when reading is whether I connect with the characters And I feel like the author did a fantastic job in that regard I felt their joy and their inner turmoil and by the end I would give an organ for any of these precious characters They might ve all been hypocrites but I was the biggest of all I just loved everything about this book The romance the action the plot twists IT WAS BRILLIANTLY DONE I could go on and on about how much I love this book but I think I ll stop nowPublication Date 3 September 2019 uotes might change after final publication Many thanks to edelweiss for providing me with an e arc in exchange for an honest reviewSecond Read April 2020I told myself I d just read a few chapters and next thing I know I was 300 pages in The writing was just as addictive as the first time I love Lou s personality she s an awesome MC And as y all already know I m trash for Reid And Ansel is such a sweet cinnamon roll this book would be nothing without himI don t know what possessed me to read this now There s still four months until the next book comes out I m probably going to reread this book again and again in the future Thank you to the publishers for sending me a finished copy of this book My pre review thoughts onBook 2 Blood and HoneyBook 3 Untitled

review Serpent Dove 107 Nto an impossible union holy matrimonyThe war between witches and Church is an ancient one and Lou's most dangerous enemies bring a fate worse than fire Unable to ignore her growing feelings yet powerless to change what she is a choice must be madeAnd love makes fools of us a. It doesn t end in death It ends in hope Let me tell you about my favourite NA fantasy book of 2019 A Story About A Witch Getting Hitched But Much More Serpent and Dove stole my heart in so many ways and all I want to do is go back and read it all over again This lush tale full of magic and intrigue is wildly imaginative but soft at the same time and if you re a fan of romance fantasy I highly recommend trying this The sales pitch enemies to lovers kickass heroines lovable side characters ansel is the floofliest cinnamon roll THE ONE BED TROPE witches and witchhunters one badass song about a lady named Big Titty Liddy I know if you aren t swearing or singing about well endowed barmaids something is wrong I honestly inhaled this and if it weren t for actually having to adult I would have finished it in one sitting Before I get into the crooks of my review let s meet our two main characters Lou Reid If there s one thing about this book that completely sold me was the fact that I loved so many characters Especially these two The characters in this book had me crying laughing and turning every page like an addict Lou stayed true to herself throughout the entire book and was never sorry for being a badass female I enjoyed her company right from the beginning and it was such a journey to watch her story unfold Enter Reid Reid was the horniest mess all encapsulated within the perfect gentleman He was everything to be honest For all those people that mentioned their dynamic is so similar to Nina and Matthias from Six of Crows you re absolutely right You really think I could knock two fully grown men unconscious My husband s reply came instantaneously Yes Their banter was off the charts and their chemistry practically flew off the page Because this book was told in dual POV s I thought it was going to be a problem to distinguish two separate voices but that was not the case Both these characters had such a wonderful character development throughout the story and even better was seeing them grow together I do have to say that this is completely a New Adult book and not a YA Reid and Lou definielty get hot and heavy When you weren t in bed I thought maybe maybe you d Left I said shrewdly It s still on the agenda For those who know my reviews you know that I often fall into the overhype trap I get very excited about books that have very high ratings and come in highly recommended but then end up disappointed I think I ve finally found the winner folks The world building a lavish french renaissance esue setting with a hub full of of illegal magic a pleasure house with a mysterious lady and the men of the church was fantastic and embedded within the story rather than separated by info dumps There were so many plot twists and character arcs that I was invested in than just the romance between Reid and Lou the story itself was fan fucking tastic Truly such a magnificent debut It was so easy to love this book Can you put something on He waved a hand in my direction the other firmly pressed against his eyes I can t talk to you when you re sitting there sitting there Naked His teeth clamped together with an audible snap Yes I didn t want this story to end to put it plainly I loved it so much that I m just going to ignore the randomness of the last couple of chapters hehe One shoutout that I would also like to mention is the fact that this book had LGBT characters but didn t make it a big deal or put any spotlight on them It was briefly mentioned as a passing comment that Coco had female lovers and then when the fucking Prince of the kingdom all but asked if Reid and Lou wanted to join Coco and him on a sexcapade Hell yes to ueer characters that don t have being ueer as their major character trait This is going on my all time favourites shelf and I need the second book yesterday

This is one of the most ridiculous books I ve read this year and it s only January It has such an absurd setup for the plot clumsy characterization and the humor lands very poorly I cringed every time the main character would loudly sing Big Titty Liddy I did like the 1 sex scene though
