Description de l’éditeur
Forever Young is a modern take on a classic Gothic novel, combining horror, death, and romance. It is firmly in the tradition of the most famous books of the genre but it is also something new. The book introduces us to Jasmine, a student of anthropology, newly arrived in Venice, and to Violetta, who is trapped in an ancient and violent world with no escape. After the two meet, Jasmine gradually awakes in Violetta the desire to escape.
Jasmine seems to be a lifeline for Violetta, but the relationship goes both ways and it is just as likely to pull Jasmine to damnation as it is to lift Violetta to salvation, especially after Jasmine meets Sebastian, a man Violetta has known for a very long time. Initially Jasmine cannot tell if Sebastian is Violetta's friend, brother, or lover, but she does know how she feels about him.
Unfortunately, the awakening in Violetta does not go unnoticed by the man Violetta calls her father, the man who has had the greatest influence on her life, the man who refuses to let her go. Join them all, and a cast of other colorful characters, on a trip through a somber lagoon to the ancient city sitting serenely at its center, Venice, where noblemen, noblewomen, spies, magic, slaves, and monsters mix, and Jasmine is destined to learn more secrets than are healthy for her.
