Blurb Once upon a time, six children stumbled upon a wild place hidden deep in the moors, shrouded by secrets and fog. There we played a game among the roses and the thorns that would change us forever, that would follow us the rest of our lives. A game that ended with a hard kiss in the rain and tattered flower petals fluttering from above…

And twelve years later, we’re back.

The heir. The dreamer. The priest. The genius. The socialite. The saint.

I’m not going to dream of a forgotten place covered in thorns every night. I won’t be enchanted by Thornchapel and its glossy, glamorous people. I’m not going to fall in love or have my heart torn in two.

I’m not telling the truth.

Because as this place slowly tightens its coil of secrets and thorns around us, as we uncover the knotted mysteries that grow here, the six of us begin to unravel into filthy, holy pleasure and pain. Fulfilling the promise we once made as children in those whispering ruins, and awakening a fate that will either anoint us or leave us in ashes…

As usual, Sierra Simone blows it out of the park. She’s one of the authors I auto-buy and don’t even stop to read the book’s description. I just know that her books are going to be crazy sexy and sensual. A Lesson in Thorns is all that and more. The main character in this book is Poe Markham but the book really focuses around 6 childhood friends who spend one formative summer together at Thornhall. And experience a life-influencing event at Thornchapel. Later in life, they all end up back at Thornchapel. Poe, especially, is drawn back to Thornchapel by family secrets. Upon arriving, her attraction to two of the six, Auden and Saint Sebastian becomes abundantly clear. In fact, there’s a very clear attraction between all six characters at this points. They are all tied together by an indescribable bound, influenced by that childhood summer. There is a suspense plot running through the book with what happened between their parents that summer. And it’s also clear that all of the six characters have their own secrets. I can’t wait to delve further into those secrets as the next books are released! A Lesson in Thorns is a phenomenal and sensual series start and a classic Sierra Simone novel.
