This time around we have Fintan McLaine and his chance to break the curse through Beth Whitley. As we find out, Beth has just found the script that shows she could break the curse but assumes it is part of her ancestry and who better to turn to than Fintan for some help in uncovering hers. The script isn’t the only thing that Beth needs though, she also has dreams… dreams in which she sees a ritual being performed, a horrific sacrif

I really loved Fintan. Perhaps it is because of his academia side with his scrolls and knowledge of history, but he was just a really great character. Beth isa great match for him. Both were incredibly well developed with history and emotions that really ran deep. Beth is denying herself and what she really wants to follow a dream that isn't hers. But Fintan is willing to try anything to make her see what's really there and embrace it.

The ties to the Selbovae Celt past were a very nice touch and

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Claire Ashgrove definitely has a way with words. Bound by Blood, the 4th book into the Inherited Damnation series, was my favorite so far. The series focuses on 8 siblings who are cursed by their demon father to kill he ones they love.
Book 4 tells the tale of Fintan and his journey to mortality. Beth travels to Scotland to seek out Fintan's help in researching her ancestry where Fintan falls in love, triggering his curse.
This series is a m

A scroll, a curse, and two people who share a shocking connection, both emotionally and historically (WHEW! at the chemistry these two share). It's a story of finding yourself. I relate to Beth and understand her struggle with wanting to do what your heart cries out for, and doing what is expected of you. These two both have inner battles to conquer and with the help of a bright old soul will, in the end, make the right choices.
