He looked into the mirror in front of him. His reflection staring back at him giving off an answer to his questioning mind. Where had time gone? His eyes held the gaze of a man that died long ago, a man that had thirst for revenge. A man that had lived, loved, and fought. In that empty gaze was countless years of wisdom and the passage of time. Yet, time had not affected his body. It was only in his eyes that you could see the horrors of war, the effects of death, and the loss of loved ones.
Gone were his children and grandchildren, all that was left was a book of portraits.
His father and brothers lost to treachery.
His life taken away, only to be used as a tool. To wonder through the ages as a bitter and cold man. He should've known that it would be taken away again.
He remembered. That's all he had now; his memories.
His Olivia. How she lit up a room with her presence, causing everyone to smile. He remembered her curly raven tresses and hazel eyes that were the colour of bronze in the morning light. Her smile, how it made him feel alive again in this everlasting life he was forced to live. Her smooth skin under his touch, how it felt like silk. Her kisses gave him hope when he needed it. He remembered it took him years to forget his first wife, whose face had haunted him when he had decided it was time to move on.

Leah Brown: This was an amazing read! I was hooked from the very first chapter, holding my breadth to see what would happen next. The characters are rich and vibrant, and the world Danielle has created is fascinating. If you love YA, you MUST read this book. Such a smart, brilliant debut novel. I loved it!
ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?
dragonswilleise: I loved this book, it was nearly impossible to put down from start to finish. It was fast passed without being overwhelming and slowed down where needed. Overall this was an amazing novel that I will definitely recommend to others.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
