 An unusual girl. An enigmatic man. An ancient castle. What could go wrong? 

An outcast her entire life, Corvina Clemm is left adrift after losing her mother. When she receives the admission letter from the mysterious University of Verenmore, she accepts it as a sign from the universe. The last thing she expects though is an olden, secluded castle on top of a mountain riddled with secrets, deceit, and death.  
An enigma his entire life, Vad Deverell likes being a closed book but knowing exactly everything that happens in the university. A part-time professor working on his thesis, Vad has been around long enough to know the dangers the castle possesses. And he knows the moment his paths cross with Corvina, she's dangerous to everything that he is.  

They shouldn't have caught each other's eye. They cannot be. But a chill-inducing century-old mystery forces them to collide. People have disappeared every five years for over a hundred years, and Corvina is getting clues to unraveling it all, and Vad needs to keep an eye on her. 

And so begins a tale of the mystique, the morbid, the macabre, and a deep love that blossoms in the unlikeliest of places.

Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Gothikana is a deliciously atmospheric dark academia story that instantly draws you into its captivating gothic darkness. The opening chapter immediately caught my attention and I haven't been able to put it down until the last page. The vivid descriptions of Verenmore University, the surrounding forest, the rumors behind its tragic history, the forbidden romance, all were beautifully presented, and it was easy to imagine those scenes before my eyes.

I loved the romantic relationship that blossomed between Corvina and Vad. It started as a slow burn, but the way it developed, each interaction, and the constant tension made it worthwhile. They had amazing chemistry, and I could almost feel the push and pull between them. I am a sucker for morally grey characters and Vad is my new favorite.

Steeped in mysticism, with sultry encounters between the protagonists and fascinating imagery, this book is definitely a must-read. I'm looking forward to whatever comes next for this fabulous world Runyx has created.

I'm an ancient soul trapped in a 26-year-old body. The phoenix is my spirit animal, books are my lifesavers, and words are my lifeblood.

I was born with stories in my veins. As far back as my memories go, story-telling has been a part of my life. 

I stumbled upon writing accidentally while going through severe depression. 

Writing became not just a means of expressing but also catharsis. Every single character and every single story became precious. It taught me to love, to live, and most importantly, it made me discover who I was.
