The Iron Tree - Cecilia Dart-Thornton
Lilith’s family has not long lived in the marshes – her grandfather arrived there, bearing a terrible curse: both he, and his daughter, Lilith’s mother, went mad after the birth of their first child. It’s a curse that Lilith has tried not to think about, until she meets Jarred, and suddenly contemplates having children of her own.
What Jarred and Lilith don’t know is that the mysteries of their past are intertwined, and only together can they answer the questions of their past. Interestingly, this is the first book of a series, but it’s a surprisingly complete story – which really makes me wonder what kind of epic adventure is up for the rest of the series.
