Forever Young by Barbara Stanzl. Consort News July 20, 2019 news Forever Young is a modern take on a classic Gothic novel, combining horror, death, and romance. It is full of interesting information about Venice, including some shocking insights into the brutality of its early years and where the city’s wealth came from. The story it tells is about Jasmine, a student of the occult, who has come to Venice to research its ghost stories and fairy tales. She meets Violetta, who is trapped in an ancient and violent world with no escape. Jasmine seems to be a lifeline for Violetta, but the relationship goes both ways and is just as likely to pull Jasmine to damnation as it is to lift Violetta to salvation, especially after Jasmine meets Sebastian, a man from Violetta’s ancient past. This all happens against a backdrop where a cast of colourful characters inhabit a city that sits serenely at the centre of a sombre lagoon. It is a story where noblemen, noblewomen, spies, magic, slaves, and monsters mix, and Jasmine is destined to learn more secrets than are healthy for her.
