Review - The Ancient Codex by Louise Herman

Publication Date: December 14, 2012
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Supernatural, Romance

When Faith’s mother starts organizing the second stage of her arranged marriage to wizard, Damien, Faith knew she needed to escape, so she used her school as a place to retreat.

Throughout her after school duties, she meets the intense, alluring Rohan, who changes her life forever.

With his ice cold skin, transfixing eyes and enchanting voice, Rohan took hold of Faith’s heart and soul as soon as they looked at each other.

She knew it was wrong.

There were from two different circles and if the Elder’s found out, the consequences would be catastrophic for all involved, but the more time they spent together, the stronger they’re love grew, until one day someone sees them...

Will their love be strong enough to combat their conflicting mythical needs? And what will they do when Faith is dealt a life threatening blow that forces her to make a heartbreaking decision?

Cover and Description from Goodreads

My review:

Everything in Faith’s life is not normal; she is a witch who has an arranged marriage to Damien, a wizard her age.  She doesn’t like Damien but has decided to make an effort to get to know him since they will have to spend the rest of their life together.  With everything going on, Faith’s need to escape all the happenings brings her to the one place she knows she can and that is at school. 

While at school she meets Rohan, a vampire and feels herself drawn to him both heart and soul although they both know this wrong (inter-circle relationships are forbidden).  Both knowing that what they feel for each other they hide their growing relationship from others until one day they are seen.

Faith and Rohan decide that their love means more to them than anything else so they run off together so that they can be together forever, hiding from the Elders and then one day they are given information that will change them forever.

I really enjoyed this book right from the beginning.  I grew attached to Faith and Rohan’s love story seeing how they choose love over law and would do anything so that they could stay together.  The story moved along perfectly with no gaps or too much information, and there were enough events that took place to keep you enthralled.  Without giving away any of the story because that wouldn’t be fun, there is one major decision that Faith has to make regarding something that will set a whole other slew of events to take place throughout the story and is very interesting to say the least J I am definitely looking forward to the second book in this series to see what happens next!
