He’s a necromancer. An abomination. And he’s my ruin.

When I hunt down the Prince of the Undying, he’s bleeding out on the battlefield. His forbidden magic violates death itself. With his bare hands, he can revive corpses and command the dead.

After I save his life, he falls to one knee and swears undying loyalty to me.

We should be enemies, but he's mine now.

He should be untouchable, but I can't stop touching him.

Every time I do, the cold fire of his necromancy tingles over my skin. It’s impossible to deny my fascination with him. Maybe there’s more than magic between us.

Heartbreakingly beautiful, he has haunted eyes that betray painful secrets in his past. Once, he was royalty. Now, he has fallen from grace into darkness.

He taunts me, telling me he hasn’t defiled me yet. I refuse to confess the truth: that's exactly what I want from him.


Prince of the Undying is a dark fantasy romance with gritty fight scenes and filthy spice.

An earlier version was first published as Shadows of Asphodel, though it has since been completely revised and rewritten with a professional editor. Consider the story risen from the dead.


I received an arc of Prince of the Undying in return for an honest review from the author. 

I loved Adris she's a kick-ass character who is good with her sword, and is willing to risk it all for those she loves. I really felt that I was able to connect with her and cheer her on as the story progressed. Wendel is a perfect counterpart to Adris he's a little on the morally grey line but I like that. They have this sizzling chemistry and the connecting they have is so sweet yet spicy. 

Prince of the Undying is a fast paced whirlwind adventure with just the right balance of spice that kept me hooked till the very last page. I found the story unique with all the magic blended the current world it felt a little steampunk but I loved that part of it. The idea of magic and machines was very interesting. 

This is my first book by the author but I'm hooked by her storytelling style she's created a captivating world with characters you just fall in love with. The story is beautiful its a darker fantasy romance and I just loved every moment of it. It was easy to get lost in the story and loose all track of time if not for real life I would have finished it in one afternoon. I highly recommend if you enjoy a spicy darker romance with lots of action. I can't wait for the next adventure for Adris and Wendel.
