Book on tour - Twice upon a time


Twice Upon A Time by Hope Irving

 Publication Date: October 31st, 2015

Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance


Summary from Goodreads:


Once upon a time, there was the wandering soul of Morgann, an 8th century Irish calligrapher-monk longing to be reunited with his soul mate. Deirdre was his forbidden love, a witch with whom he wrote a coveted book.

Under her spell, the souls of the star-crossed lovers travel from bodies to bodies until they find each other. Eventually.
That became his quest: unearth her new body and trigger her memory, for she is clueless about whom she once was. Unfortunately their story didn't get a chance to become a fairy tale yet it still turned out as a famous urban legend referred as The Black Angel Book. 

Twice upon a time, not so long ago, there was me, rational and devastated Rose. I needed to get a grip, said my French mum after my year of numbness due to a painful break-up that led me to cut my wrist daily, to feel something, anything.

So she sent me off to the free-spirited village of Provincetown, Massachusetts, to spend the summer with my American relatives. And just like that, I wasn’t myself any longer. Because someone pulled me out of the darkness and bewitched me, somehow.

I couldn’t wait to jump his bones… but why was he holding back?
He couldn’t wait to welcome me into his world… but was I ready to question my convictions and acknowledge that my self-inflicted cuts were now healing in record time?

How could I have imagined he was longing for his own unorthodox fairytale to come true? Frantically.

My review


I have read many paranormal books, but never one quite like this.
Morgann is a monk, who has been assigned to help Deirdre write a book of medicine. 
Right from the start he is drawn to her, he knows she is the one for him. But he has made a solemn oath to abstinence and the teachings of God, he should resist her. But he can’t. He loves her.
In the eight century, breaking your vow of celibacy was unheard of, not to mention carrying on with a woman who people deemed as a witch, so unfortunately, they are hunted down, not only for what they have done, but also for this book that was eventually called, “Black Angel book.” People believed it had a power of immortality.

So they killed Deidre and left Morgann to die. However, they were right in thinking Deirdre was witch, because she most definitely was and before her death, she cast a spell so their souls would reunite, even though their human forms would die. .

What a powerful book. I have never read something that was so engaging, gripping and absolutely fantastic. What a beautiful fantasy, to know the one you loved you would share eternity with.
This book gave me that ‘ah’ feeling, that satisfied smile that tells you this was a great book.
