The Castle by Stacey Zackerly (#genderswap #bisexual #halloween)

Although the story itself has nothing to do with Halloween, The Castle has all the darkness, the atmosphere, and the ancient magic that you would expect of a suitable holiday read.

Stacey Zackerly weaves a Gothic romance with a dual gender-swap at its heart, in which a pair of young men stumble across an old castle and decide to seek shelter from the storm. By the end of the first chapter they have both become young women, but that is really only the beginning of the story.

On the one hand, this is a 19th-century mystery, full of dark dreams and strange hints, where it is clear that Count Landermore knows more than he is letting on. There is a sinister air throughout, leaving the reader to wonder what the family's true intentions might be, but that is only half the story.

On the other hand, this is a Gothic romance, full of illicit dreams and strange teases, where it is clear Adela and Frida are adjusting better than they should. There is a sensual air throughout, inviting the reader to enjoy their increasingly explicit romances, and where the two halves meet is where the story gets really exciting.

Beware The Castle but, should you stumble into the magical circle, consider your destiny carefully, for one man's curse is another woman's blessing.
