I’m an outcast and a loner, named for death itself. Fate wasn’t supposed to have plans for me.

But then she came back—the girl I once kissed in a thorn-covered chapel in the woods. She came back, and I could no more resist her than I could pry out my own heart. And by some trick of fate, she wants me as much as I want her. The only problem? She also wants the man who owns T

“If I could rearrange the world for you, I would,” he says. “I’d rearrange everything.”



Stepping into Thornchapel is like being blindfolded on a rollercoaster. You never know when your inching up and nearing the edge... and then all of a sudden your stomach drops, your heart is light and you're descending at rapid speed. Then, everything seems fine but you really have no idea what else is in store for you.

1.) A Lesson in Thorns ★★★★

“I am the girl who kneels at night. I am the bride of thorns.”

Alright, first off, I still completely recommend A Lesson in Thorns, and it is still one of my favorite romances of the year. I just believe with my whole heart that you should pretend it is a standalone, because Feast of Sparks was a complete mess. From unprotected sex, with multiple partners back to back, to questionable flashbacks to boys who are only sixteen, to Dom/sub relationships that felt a lot

SCREAMS OVER THE LAST 10% FOREVER. I have NO IDEA how to rate this but I am pretty sure I hated it rjendueijEHWIDNFJOFN. Insert tyra WE WERE ALL ROOTING FOR YOU gif bc I am TIRED. That ending was awful. AWFUL.

Buddy read with Melanie, Jane, & Madalyn!

since y'all apparently lack basic reading comprehension: i literally stated that i hated the ending and my high rating is for the first 80%. the people subtweeting me and saying i apparently support incest need to grow the fuck up and stop acting like children. thanks

Thank you to the author for kindly providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review!

Right well there's a lot to say here isn't there?

Can I start with my biggest irk when it comes to this book though, and it's actually the reviews of it. Usually I couldn't give two shakes of a donkey's tale why someone dislikes or likes a book, it's all your opinion, but I have to address the multitude of reviewers criticising Poe for her actions in the aftermath of her grief. Only because what you write in a review will be read by people who have grieved and lost and these kind of judgements up

5 Bride of Thorns Stars ⭐

Feast of Sparks picks up immediately from where A Lesson in Thorns dramatically ended. With a discovery that left Poe devastated and an explosion of emotions between herself and her eventual lovers St Sebastian and Auden this book was breathtaking from the first page.

"If I could rearrange the world for you, I would,” he says. “I’d rearrange everything."

This is a complicated love story about three people that need each other more then their next breath, but there are so

Wow! I just finished and my word. My head is still reeling, my mind is processing it all. What I can say for sure is that is HOT, everything erotica should be. It is filled with beautiful prose, as all of Sierra Simone’s stories are. It is unique and complex and an interesting swirl of love and romance, religion and mythology, mystery and bdsm. It is uniquely Sierra Simone.

Feast of Sparks focuses more on St. Sebastian. We get more of his back story and

This series is my new addiction, both books were so brilliant!The concept is refreshing and intrigued!I fall in love with the story and the characters!This book picks up right where the last book left off, and I was hooked!


“You and Poe are like air and water, and he’s earth. He’s fire.”

This was so hot,sensual and intense!The relationship between St. Sebastian, Proserpina (Poe) and Auden is something else!I could feel their connection.

5 “Enchanting” Stars

Wow, what a read!! Feast of Sparks is enchanting, mystical, erotic, and addictive. It is the second book in The Thornchapel series and picks up right where book one ends. It is a must to read A Lesson in Thorns before this one.

The way this author tells her story is one that is so very unique. She incorporates the setting, Thornchapel, as a major player within the story along with Auden, St. Sebastian, Proserpina, Rebecca, Father Beckett, and Delphine. The combination of this

A Lesson in Thorns was iconic, different, and fun.

This is repetitive, gross, and should have never been done.

Well.. This turned into a fucking mess.

I have been sitting with a cup of coffee in my hand for the last 20 minutes while I've been thinking how I felt about this book because my emotions have been through a blender while I was reading this last night. And not a good kind of blender, but the one that turns everything into a gooey mush.

Where I had somewhat liked Poe in A Lesson in Thorns I found her to be unbearable this time around. Maybe by now her sexual needs were starting to get on my fucking

Look here Sierra. After finishing A Lesson In Thorns I had to immediately pick up this one. If I thought that book was dirty *clutches chest* I was MISTAKEN. THIS BOOK is filthy. There's a sex scene with a priest in a church for christ sake. However, this book lost the plot. Literally. It was ALL about the sex. NOT TO MENTION THE ENDING IS COMPLETE AND UTTER BULLSHIT. How, as a reader, are we supposed to feel when we've been encouraging this relationship the whole fucking time. AND THEN the auth ...more

Complex love that captures 6 friends in a web of champagne filled excessive life, heartbreak laced with pain, lust that binds with thorns. Sierra creates MAGIC and enraptures your senses till you see through her eyes this fantastic tale which is sprinkled with Diamante of Myths and A pearly sheen of Paranormal otherworldliness. She makes you a believer in all things legendary and fantastical till you are transported in the Craggy moors of Devon, over the altar lit by lanterns, thorns binding you ...more

Feast of Sparks is the second book in the Thornchapel series and MUST be read in order!!! I love this authors writing style and she really brings originality to the romance genre! I found this one to be kinky, delicious, and swoon worthy. I don't normally care for books with a million sex scenes but for some reason, the sensuality that Sierra writes about in this book drew me in. I love the unconventional relationships that take place. I love

Book 2 – MUST read book 1 first!

Feast of Sparks is what Sierra Simone does best. Tells beautifully filthy stories in such a way that you simply can’t look away.

This one focuses more on St. Sebastian – we get his back story and the reason his relationship with Auden is the way it is. How will he, Auden and Poe make things work? At times it seems impossible! It’s a complicated tale and I was hooked. We get to see everyone grow and evolve as their relationships change and more secrets are revealed
I’m abstaining from rating this one because I’m truly at a loss. For now, here’s how it breaks down:

Everything but the last chapter: 5 stars
The last chapter: 0 stars

Make of that what you will.

I’m selling the house and moving to Devon.

Thornchapel owns me. Every bit of me.

I want to wedge myself into a Poe, Auden, Saint sandwich and dance around the fire with Delphine, Rebecca, Becket and Sir James Frazer whilst drinking Prosecco and banging on a drum.

Imbolc was hot. Beltane is so much hotter. Like scorching hot. Kindle smouldering hot. Sex toy hot. Tumblr research hot. Hot. Hot. Hot. Hotter than the equator. Hotter than a naked Adam Levine. Hotter than the signing room at RARE. Hotte
Well, I’ll be damned.

Even though my TBR pile is ginormous, I decided that reading the sequel of a book I didn’t like, was the best use of my time. 🙄 But that’s just me, I can’t abandon books. Once I make a commitment, I am in all the way. And A Lesson in Thorns was too intriguing, if nothing else, to not at least try and read the next in the series.

Feast of Sparks starts right where A Lesson of Thorns left off. Not giving anything away, just saying it was something very traumatic and shocking fo
Fuck that ending 😡😡 I still loved it overall but whhhhhhyyyy 😭💔. Ugh, just when I finally reached the moment I was waiting for the entire book, Simone fucking rips my heart out 😭

I just....
Why would...
It's not going to be ok now...
It's too soon for this level of problems right now...

This is bullshit 😭😭😭

Edit:After getting over my initial shock of the ending, I actually think Simone brings up an interesting topic.

Yes, this is not my usual reading choice/genre, but. This book was such a huge mess—even though I skimmed all the parts that make this book erotica, which makes up like 80%, give or take (leaning towards the former). I only cared about the flashback scenes with Auden/Saint, to be honest.

Also, the ending … I get ending books on cliffhangers, and wanting to get readers to feel compelled to buy the next book in a series, but—this felt very cheap, and unnecessary, and just … yikes.

Let me start with this , this series I've never read something deeper or crazier or sexier than this one . The way Sierra hook you to her books no one can do , the more you read the more you want , and when it come to this book I thought there will be nothing like lesson in thorn but this one is a whole another lever of love , sex , mystery, and the odd friendship . I can't relate to any character on this book or the things they do but still when you read it you will feel attached to the

"I am the girl who kneels at night. I am the bride by thorns."

I really have no idea how Sierra Simone does this. This book left me hot and cold all over the place. This second book in the Thornchapel series is another masterpiece that needs to be devoured. It's no book you can read in between, you need to take your time as it demands your full attention from the first page to the last.

"You and Poe are like air and water, and he's earth. He's fire."

Get yourself a man who cuts your mother off knowing full-well she depends on that money, indirectly makes you drop your education, but doesn't give a fuck because his feelings and ego are bruised. But he says he still loves you and pinky promises he'll take good care of you.

The only thing I felt while reading this book was boredom and three different types of disgust. So there's two Catholics—one who's a priest, btw—fucking in the middle of the church (that's also unlocked) because that's oh-so
