House of Eclipses - Casey L Bond Duology

Capture his heart. Steal his crown.

Noor is the unwanted, unloved third born of the Aten, chosen vessel of the sun goddess, Sol. While she has no chance at inheriting her father’s title, what she truly longs for is peace from his unrelenting hatred. Hope builds that she may finally be able to claim that reprieve when a missive arrives from the House of the Moon.

The new Lumin, chosen of the moon god, Lumos, seeks to broker peace with the Kingdom of Helios for the first time in ages. He envisions open trade routes and an end to archaic rivalries. His dedication to this cause extends to visions of a union between the two families by marrying one of Aten’s daughters, if one of the matches is a fit.

Driven by his own twisted agenda, Noor’s father is willing to sacrifice his daughters as pawns to steal the crown for him to further his despotic reign, pitting sister against sister in a brutal battle for power. But Noor must come out the victor, either by capturing the Lumin’s heart or stealing his crown. For whomever wears the crown of moonlight, holds the power of the moon itself. With such strength at her command, she could finally defeat her tyrannical father.

Yet this endeavor cannot be accomplished without great sacrifice. As Noor learns more about Lumin Caelum, guilt over her betrayal consumes her, burning hot as the sun itself. If only he wasn’t kind, and selfless, and exactly what she wanted. If only she had greater dominion over her heart…

Can Noor carry out her plan and end her father’s vile reign? Or will unlikely alliances allow a new day to dawn?

Minor Spoilers

Another knockout from Casey L Bond.

House Eclipses Casey Bond

House of Eclipses is book #1 in Bond’s House of Eclipses duology. Bond dreams up some amazing storylines. House of Eclipses follows the lovely Noor, whom we meet during the funeral of her father’s eighth wife. Noor’s father, The Aten, has killed them all, including Noor’s mother. Tragedy builds amazing characters, and Noor is no different. The Aten hates his daughter and shows her as much frequently.

Sol & Lumos

If you are familiar with mythology, you will see the connections between ancient myths & Bond’s story. If you are unaware of any myths surrounding the moon & sun, you are in for a treat. You are in for a treat even if you have heard the ancient myths. Bond has built a richly imaginative world and culture around the two magnificent orbs.

Helios, The Kingdom of Day.

Lumina, The Kingdom of Night.

House of Wolves Casey L Bond

When the great divide happened, the gods cleaved the earth in two and divided it among their peoples. Sol built Helios in her inherited northern portion, while Lumos created Lumina among his bottom half of the world.

House of Eclipses is a beautiful story of love, loss and longing. The Kingdom of Day is dying. Sol has perched herself high in the sky above Helios and hasn’t moved, scorching and killing the land of Helios. No one has seen the moon in decades. Lumos dwells in the land of Lumina, and while he rises and falls, he does not leave his kingdom. Sol never shines in Lumina, and now, their land is dying.

I loved everything about House of Eclipses.

House of Eclipses Duology

The new Lumin of The Kingdom of the Moon has requested to meet with The Aten. He wishes to forge a treaty between their two lands for peace and prosperity. And Lumos willing, a marriage. The Aten has other plans, taking his two younger daughters along and commanding them to steal the Crown of Night. He wants both the power of the sun and the moon.

Love and Romance bloom between Noor and The Lumin.

Noor has no intentions of stealing the crown for her father. She seeks the crown for herself to save Sol, Helios & her people from her father’s cruelty. I loved the blooming romance that grew between Noor and The Lumin, Caelum. It was beautiful to read as Noor opened up to Caelum, and the two fell in love.

” We’ve barely spoken, but it feels like you’re a siren and have already dragged me into the depths. “

Quotes

Her delicate features shrouded her harsh, greedy heart from most people, but I knew her best.

The whites of my mother’s eyes had burst with red, too. A sight that still haunted me to this day.

Every word I’d spoken was retribution for every second he held her throat and refused to let go – until the light bled from her golden eyes.

…was preserved like the bits of bone entrenched in the sand.

Many considered me a princess, when I knew I was a queen.

HOUSE OF ECLIPSES Casey L Bond quotes

Perhaps the goddess of gold and fire’s mercy had burnt away, leaving nothing but uncontrollable anger, her grace drying like the deserts breaking into tiny grains, mounded like the encroaching sand dunes.

Where my heart should be, a cold, darkness took root, desolate and lonely as the shifting sands.

It would feel like an arrow struck his heart at the same time I plunged a dagger into his back.

He only cares about the person’s heart and whether it aligns with his, and whether the person’s ambition is strong enough to carry out his will.

Every time Father tried to beat me down, he built me into something stronger and more indestructible.

Stuck in a perpetual cycle of longing for something we could never have.
