Belladonna by Adalyn Grace

About the Book – Belladonna

The  New York Times  bestselling author of  All the Stars and Teeth  brings to life a highly romantic, Gothic-infused world of wealth, desire, and betrayal. ​

Orphaned as a baby, nineteen-year-old Signa has been raised by a string of guardians, each one more interested in her wealth than her well-being—and each has met an untimely end. Her remaining relatives are the elusive Hawthornes, an eccentric family living at Thorn Grove, an estate both glittering and gloomy. Its patriarch mourns his late wife through wild parties, while his son grapples for control of the family’s waning reputation, and his daughter suffers from a mysterious illness. But when their mother’s restless spirit appears claiming she was poisoned, Signa realizes that the family she depends on could be in grave danger and enlists the help of a surly stable boy to hunt down the killer.

However, Signa’s best chance of uncovering the murderer is an alliance with Death himself, a fascinating, dangerous shadow who has never been far from her side. Though he’s made her life a living hell, Death shows Signa that their growing connection may be more powerful—and more irresistible—than she ever dared imagine.

Our Review of Belladonna

I absolutely freaking loved this book. It has its ups and downs but the whole experience of the book was so good that I will definitely put this in one of my favs. The thing that makes this book so interesting is yes the romance but more than that the book actually focuses on an actual mystery. So you have an actual reason to stick with the book- to find out the truth.

The only thing that actually got to me was how the book kind of took a dip in the middle. But other than that it kept the plot interesting by throwing in some amazing plot twists. Even during its dips, there was the promise of something cooking and because of that the book definitely kept its allure intact.

You have to give kudos to the author for making “Death” an actual character and moreover a “hero”. Oh, you have to read the book to know the how and why of that statement. Well as I said the book is not all about romance and that is why I believe the series is going to build on the romance in the sequels. If it is anything like shown and promised in this book, then I can’t wait to see how this romance will come to fruition in the sequels


In conclusion, I loved this book for its romance and an actual mystery in the plot which kept it exciting and worth exploring. I loved how the book focused on the mystery and the romance was an added spice that kept the book even more interesting.
