The Longing and the Lack
By C.M. Spivey
(The Unliving #1)
Publication date: September 19th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal

“Gothic curses, deadly love affairs, and vengeful ghosts 
combine to make this paranormal mystery a compelling 
page-turner.” — Tina Connolly, Nebula-nominated author 
of Ironskin

Lucinda Hightower is no stranger to death.

Since she was a child, Lucinda has been haunted by rabid 
dogs, suicidal crows, and the ghost of a woman in white. 
All are omens signaling someone’s imminent demise—
except Lucinda’s friends and family are still breathing.

The omens follow her to Ireland and the quiet university in 
her father’s hometown, increasing in strength and frequency
 once she meets Damien Reed. A handsome third year 
student, Damien thrusts himself into Lucinda’s life almost 
immediately and caresses away the unsavory reputation that
 shadows him.

It’s not until the ghost sinks her nails into Damien that he 
reveals his secret: the death omens are for him.

They’re the manifestations of a curse that claims the life of 
the eldest Reed son every generation. Damien’s time is 
nearly up. If Lucinda is to save him, she must solve the 
mystery of her family curse, and lay a spirit’s rage to rest.

A dark romance for fans of Diane Setterfield and the TV 
show SupernaturalThe Longing and the Lack is a Gothic 
story for the modern age.

Holy hell, I am at a loss of words. Well. The book is
 phenomenally well-written and one of the most interesting 
reads I have read in a while. I cannot wait to read more. 
Now this is not a romance. It’s a mystery.

This book is about Lucinda, a young woman that is cursed.
 And she is sick of it. So she travels to Ireland to study and 
break the curse. But what she does not know is there is 
another side of the curse. When she meets Damien and 
learns his half of the curse she is even more determined to 
break it. Only when she figures it out something truly horrible 
happens and I was so shocked. I couldn't believe what they 
did to her. But in the end never cross a witch or you may just 
get burned.

Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope you
 enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book, 
please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it 
when you do; they value your opinions too
