Goodreads Blurb:
Hateful Burden is a gaslight-era paranormal horror novel as well as a psychological thriller where friends and foes are not always what they seem. In this dark urban fantasy, paranormal powers are bred and collected.

Lady Ramillia Winmoore, daughter of the Earl of Brooksberry, has suffered from gaps in her memory her entire life. But this darkness is a blessing. Whenever she feels threatened, it takes over and protects her from feeling pain or even the slightest bit of discomfort. That is until the day she awakens strapped to an examining table at the West Freeman Asylum for Lunatics.

Imprisoned for the gruesome murder of her parents, Ramillia learns she has lost ten months to the darkness. Forced to endure years of tortuous treatments in a grimy, hidden cell, salvation arrives in the form of a benefactor named Sir Julian Lawerence. Betrothed to her through an arranged marriage, he helps her gain freedom.

But appearances are deceiving and soon Ramillia learns the cost she must pay. The horrors she encounters in his household are far worse than the asylum when he inducts her into a society of blood-thirsty, cruel immortals. Soon she is forced to join them and accept their way of life.

Now Ramillia must break free of a prison she cannot see, kill an enemy that cannot die, and find a daughter that she cannot remember—all with the help of an ally she does not know. Who is Sally and can she be trusted? Is this mysterious and frightening woman trying to save her or is she planning on saving Ramillia for herself?

My Review:
This is my first time reading any of Natalie Gibson’s work. WHAT HAVE I BEEN MISSING!!?? I fully enjoyed Hateful Burden. Found it very hard to put down actually. It’s very well written, engaging, realistic, thrilling and intense. Anyone that enjoys a spooky, mysterious, exciting and slightly erotic read will definitely enjoy their time spent within this story’s pages!

Ramillia is a very young woman. A very unusual young woman with secrets even she is not privy to. Having spent much time being treated for mental illness after her family’s murder. Mistreated, abused, lost and confused a majority of the time she is in the facility. All turns around for her when she is found by her betrothed. A different light, a brighter one. Now it just needs to be seen if it’s too good to be true or truly meant to be…

I’m super psyched for the next of the series. I love the way it ended. Leaving you wanting and very curious. Bring on the next in the trilogy, please :)
