Cursed by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Rating: I liked it
The Skinny: While her sister creates life, a girl causes death.
After reading every book that JLA has published, I was excited to discover that she wrote a new book about a girl who has a deadly touch. Ember must battle her instinct to protect her younger sister while accepting the help of strangers and navigating a new life that seems to be littered with secrets.
Ember is a really interesting character, and I connected to her and understood her emotions. Her fear and frustrations are understandable and her strength is admirable. She not only took care of her sister and mother but also successfully ran a household. Her dedication to her family is incredible. While I liked Ember’s character, I did not connect with Hayden. Perhaps it has something to do with JLA’s other male characters being so otherworldly and enchanting. I mean, who can compete with Daemon?
Overall, I liked Cursed and hope that the story continues. I want to know more about this world and what is really going on. JLA is so good at creating memorable characters and interesting stories. I am in awe of her talent and how she is able to juggle so many stories.
I have an extra ARC of CURSED that I would like to give to a commenter from the US.
Just leave a way for me to contact you (Twitter, blog, etc.), and I will randomly select a winner in one week.
Good luck! I really hope you win.
