Fans of Keri Arthur will love the Weird Girls, four sisters cursed with supernatural powers. In Cecy Robson’s latest urban fantasy romance, the search is on for an unholy grail, while evil is licking its wounds—and looking for revenge.
The preternatural world is changing. After a massive magical throwdown tore apart the established order, the dark elements are rebuilding their ranks unopposed. Celia Wird’s world is changing, too. She’s the mate of the pureblood were Aric, and his Warriors are honor-bound to protect her family as she and her sisters recover from unimaginable horrors.
Celia hesitates to reveal the true extent of the Wird sisters’ trauma, but they aren’t the only ones keeping secrets: Aric and the werewolf Elders are tracking a stone that grants limitless power. So is a tough coven of witches. Then Misha, a master vampire with his own plans for the stone, sends Celia after it. Can she and the vamps beat both the weres and the witches to the treasure before it falls into the wrong hands?
Fearing for Celia’s safety, Aric begs her to stay out of the hunt. What they don’t realize is that they’re the ones being hunted. But Celia’s ready to prove that she’s not easy prey.
I received this ARC from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, I was in no way compensated for this review.
Cecy Robson's A Curse Unbroken was an utterly delightful read! There was so much excitement and mystery to the whole story that I couldn't put it down! It was a highly enjoyable and completely lovable read!
There are still a few issues and pain that must be dealt with after the events of A Cursed Bloodline. Celia is dealing with the pain of losing her and Aric's child and never being able to have another one after Anara's attack, but she's not the only one suffering. Taran is going through her own emotional turmoil that threatens to tear her and Gemini apart as well.
When it seems everyone--the Weres, the witches, and the vampires are after a powerful stone, Celia is roped into the search as well. This stone can grant ultimate and limitless power for it's fueled by an entity of sorts. Like a genie in a way, but obviously no Robin Williams! And this stone is so powerful it can basically tip the scales for the battle between good and evil, which makes it quite the hot commodity and a race/battle to get to it before the bad guys do!
There are other forces at work here too, though I feel like I can't get into those details without spoiling something...but yeah, we can definitely leave it at that! Nothing is ever simple in Celia's world!
I truly have come to adore this series and the characters! I love Celia and her sisters! I love the Weres, those guys are all awesome. Though I admit, there were times in the course of the series that I kind of wanted to slap Aric...mostly in that last book! All has been forgiven! I remember when I first started the series, I thought I was going to be overwhelmed with Celia and three sisters. It was just so many people because then they all have their own boyfriend too! But truly, it wasn't overwhelming at all! I love all these characters and I can't believe I even once thought there might be too many! There is the perfect amount really! I wouldn't want it any other way!
The romance in this story was incredible as well! I loved seeing Celia and Aric together, even though they still face a ton of issues in trying to stay together! But I also loved seeing Shayna and Koda in their happy little bubble! I was near tears watching Taran and Gemini grow apart. And I was positively delightful over the new prospects for Emme! Whew boy! If I recall correctly, there was a subtle hint or two in the previous book, and though nothing was set in blazing colors to said romance prospects, I feel like we getting on solid ground there!
While this draws a conclusion to Celia's tale in the Weird Girls, the series isn't over yet! There's a definite hint at more danger and enemies to come, but it looks like it will be Taran's turn at the wheel...oh boy! Better buckle up for that one! LOL (but at least it's not Shayna for she's hell on wheels! LOL!!)
Overall Rating 5/5 stars
