Till Death and Beyond is a sizzling tale of two souls bound by destiny in a cruel plot to separate them forever...
A COLD BEAUTY WHO KNOWS DEATH INTIMATELY...
Amira is the strongest witch on the face of the earth, with psychic abilities no others possess. And yet, she is but a slave to the whims of the gods. Forced to be born anew every time she fails in fulfilling an ancient prophecy, Amira is desperate to break the vicious cycle.

A TORMENTED WARRIOR WHO HAS LOST EVERYTHING...
Plagued by the memories and guilt over his family's demise, Raven lives for the sole reason of restoring his younger brother. And kidnapping a witch is only the beginning--for he intends to right the wrongs of his past by any means necessary.

A DESTINY TO CHANGE THE WORLD...
While the gods might have planned for her to be captured, surrender is not something that comes easy to Amira. Yet one glance into her captor's eyes, and she is swept away by emotions long ago denied to her. She decides to play along. For a while.
Despite the hatred Raven harbors for their kind, he is intrigued by the witch. One taste of her lips, and she becomes his obsession. Soon, he discovers that fighting against the passion they ignite in one another is futile. But as they strip each other's secrets, a powerful force threatens to destroy them both.
For in this game of gods nothing is simple--the whole universe seems to conspire against them. And no matter how fiercely they fight, or what they are willing to endure to save each other ... the path they travel is paved with loss.
Will they survive the ultimate test, if even their determination--to fight till death--might not be enough?
 
 Till Death and Beyond by Lyn C. Johanson (Witch World, #1)

Till Death and Beyond (Witch World, #1)For being the most powerful witch on Earth, Amira is a mere pawn in the games that gods play. She must fulfill an ancient prophecy or face the pain of death over and over again. Amira has had enough, but are the gods finished with her? Raven is a tortured soul, he has lost everything and not only is he out for revenge, he is on a mission to bring his brother back to him and all he needs is one vile witch…what he got was a woman who may hold his destiny and his heart in her hands.

Lyn. C. Johanson quickly and artfully builds her world and invites us in to witness the tale of TILL DEATH AND BEYOND, a story of fear, hatred and superstitions, as well as love, loyalty and trust. Do you believe in magic? Amira will make a believer out of you as she willingly risks her own life in an effort to save the lives of mortals, the very mortals who fear and despise her and would willingly murder her without provocation. Can we blame them? They have fallen to the same failings of all humanity, forming an opinion of a race based on little or no knowledge, or worse, hearsay. In spite of it all, and the abuse she faces at the hands of men, there is a strength and sense of pride that never lets Amira falter, until she is around Raven, as they both struggle to deny the attraction they feel. How long can Raven resist, hiding behind the hatred for witches he has harbored for so long? Isn’t Amira proof that there is honor and goodness among them? Are the gods still determined to cause them soul-deep grief?

Well-told, in-depth and written at a pace that allows the reader to become part of this tale, part of this world and emotionally invested. The right amount of tragedy, turmoil, heat and passion bring this world to life in every way!

I received this copy from Lyn C. Johanson in exchange for my honest review.
