Release Blitz & Review: THE ISLE OF SIN AND SHADOWS by Keri Lake



Keri Lake

Release Date: March 1

In the Louisiana swamplands, ghost stories are as much a part of childhood as chasing fireflies and crawfishing. They never much scared me, though, nor the possibility of evil out to do me harm. Until the night I watched shadows come to life and butcher everything I loved.

With a stranger's help, I managed to escape to an isolated place miles north, and, in time, became my own ghost story. A cautionary tale for the locals. 

Nearly a decade passed, before I returned to my birthplace, in hopes of unearthing long-awaited answers. Instead, I found something I wasn't looking for. Someone. A remedy for my loneliness.

Or so I thought.

Turns out, Thierry Bergeron is no elixir. He's a deadly poison, cursed by the demons of his past, and feared by those who call him the elusive Rougarou of the bayou. A devious rogue, whose seductive whispers and rough hands haunt my dreams. The big bad wolf that defiles me without apology, or remorse. 

I should resist him, but I can't.

And when the shadows return to stake their claim on me, his darkness is the only safe place to hide.

Keri Lake has cast some voodoo witch crafty sh*t on me with this story and I LOVED every minute of it!

"This island alone boasts more ghost stories than all of Louisiana combined. And I’m one of them."

WOW just...W O W. Words won't be enough to express my level of love for Thierry and Celeste's story. The level of detail, plot execution, and character development that Keri did was astounding. It was very obvious that she put a lot time and effort into creating this fictional world and characters. But that comes as no surprise. When it comes to Keri's writing, she excels at developing a book world. She can write anything she puts her mind to and she can write it well. She immerses the reading within the world that she creates. She breathes life into her words and gives her stories their own heartbeat. This story truly came alive while I was reading it! I could feel the history, the culture, the mystery, the fear, the relationships, the plot...everything was meticulously written and utterly addictive! She had my mind stretching with so many thoughts and questions with each chapter read. With her stories, it is always more than just another romance story, you get a multi-layered world with TONS of dimension. There's so much depth in her stories! And this dark gothic romance had SO MUCH depth! On top of this completely fictional world, Keri gives us an utterly painful and delicious slow burn. Oh but the burn is so worth it because once it's triggered, there's no holding it back! * fans self* Thierry and Celeste are everything together! I loved them!

"This unbearable ache inside of me has a name: Thierry Bergeron. He’s what I desire more than anything. The exquisite poison that’s sure to destroy my heart this time."

What I love about Keri's stories, aside from their extraordinary journey I know I'll go on, is I can NEVER predict what to expect or what direction she'll take me in. I'm always left on the edge of my seat wondering, filled with nervous energy and craving more of her words every time I have to set my kindle down. THE ISLE OF SIN AND SHADOWS had me doing just that. I was utterly addicted. This is definitely a story I will not soon forget! If you're in the mood for something completely different, something dark and eerie, something with supernatural vibes, something with superstitions and a cult plot, something that will have you checking under your bed before you go to sleep at night, then THIS is the story for you! And if this is your first time coming across Keri Lake, definitely give her writing a try. THE ISLE OF SIN AND SHADOWS show cases all that she can do as an author and then some.

Because ghost stories aren't meant to have happy endings. But mine did.

je suis fou de toi (I'm crazy about you) stars!
