Lips Touch Three Times

Lips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor
illustrated by Jim Di Bartolo

Soul Stealing, Soul Saving, Soul Searching!

Three stories of a kiss that had the power to change lives.
Three stories of souls that learn what it is to love.

Goblin Fruit.
Kizzy is exactly the kind of girl that is easily picked on by pretty girls with gorgeous boyfriends. She is exactly the kind of girl that will never fit in, with her strange family customs and superstitious ways. She is exactly the kind of the girl the goblins crave.

All her life Kizzy has wanted. She has wanted with a passion all that she does not have and would give anything to have it. But would she really give everything? Kizzy has the knowledge that would save her, but will she ignore it risking everything for a single kiss.

Spicy Little Curses Such As These.
Estella was only a young bride when she became a widow. Overcome with grief, Estella had made a decision to travel to Hell, literally, to win back her love who was so cruelly taken from her. However it was too late and she could not save him.

It was the first of many journeys for Estella into Hell, for although she had failed to save the man she loved she had instead been given a purpose. She was to save the souls of the innocent, but somehow she finds herself the deliverer of a murderous curse that will change one girl's fate forever. A curse spurred on by a kiss.

Esme and her mother lived a life straight from the pages of a fairy tale. Esme was taught to dance like a faerie, climb trees like a squirrel, and sit so still that birds would perch on her. But as magical and beautiful as their peaceful life was it would be shattered each night with nightmares hiding very dark secrets.

Like Esme, her mother Mab had a dreamlike childhood that then turned into a nightmare. But some nightmares you can not escape from no matter how far you run. As a lifetime of memories is hidden in the mists the only hope may be a lover's first kiss.

Lips Touch: Three Times and magical things happen; though these are not always good things. A beautifully haunting book of doomed lovers and lost souls. This is a masterful collection of stories that are accompanied by the most gorgeous otherworldly images.
