A Sacred Vow

By Willa Thorne



I swore a solemn oath that saw to the end of the Cormacs, a family of hunters that persistently sought to rid my coven’s existence. For years we have lived in the shadows, free from hunters and the weapons of wood that could destroy us. But the familiar scent of Cormac blood is awakening my senses. We were certain that we had ended the bloodline. Now, the vow I swore plagues my mind. The guilt I harbour buries deep. The desire and lust burns. My pledge to my family is now a promise to protect the woman I love. Aurelia Galligan is a descendant of the Cormac bloodline. I should drain her. I have to destroy her. But she may just end me.


A Sacred Vow reminded me of a classic love story.  Two families at war and two young people find themselves in love. Except in this love story the man is a vampire who is well over 250 years old and the girl is a part of a family she didn’t even knew existed.

Julian, a vampire, made a vow to the leader of his clan.  His vow was to kill every member of the Cormac family that existed.  While working on fulfilling this vow in 1896 he was cursed by an old woman that “the one he loved would be his greatest sacrifice.”  Many years later he would find out what that meant.

In present time, Lia was just moving back into her grandparents old house with her cousin and friend.  Little did she know that she was about to meet a very dangerous and but exciting man that would change her life forever.

When Julian first met Lia he thought he was just going to have his dinner but there was something about her that he couldn’t ignore.  Once he saw the mark of the Cormac family he was horrified because now he had to contend with his vow.

A Sacred Vow was a great take on a vampire story. I loved that fact the Julian has this war going on inside of him.  He was willing to go against his family and his best friend Nolan to save her. I really like Lia as well, she had been through a lot with her family and yet she still had a great attitude.

Willa Thorn has put a great twist on a classic love story.  I look forward to seeing where she takes this series.
