ARC Review--A Curse Awakened by Cecy Robson

Discover Cecy Robson’s sensational Weird Girls series—or return to where the magic first began—with this eBook original prequel novella about four sisters coming to grips with their unique supernatural powers.

Celia Wird shouldn’t possess the ability to transform into a tigress. Her three sisters should never be able to burst into flames, heal wounds, or transform common objects into deadly weapons. And yet they do.

Before they were born, the Wird Sisters were cursed by a spell that was intended to destroy them, not endow them with extraordinary powers. The sisters’ magic is untamed and explosive at best, and time is running out for them to take command.

Vampires have targeted Celia’s sweet, tragically human ex-boyfriend Danny. The sisters rush to his aid, but in order to take down the vamps, first they must face their dark past and break a spell that’s screwing up their powers. Except this curse wasn’t meant to be broken . . . and the witch who cast it isn’t done toying with them yet.

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 Awakened was an intriguing read to the Weird Girls series. It takes place before the series "officially" starts, yet their curse is in full swing. The girls are getting ready to move away and start a new life with new jobs, but their plans are abruptly halted when their friend Danny comes to them begging for help. His father has been kidnapped by vampires.

Celia and her sisters are racing to find his father, for he can't have much time left in the hands of vampires. He joins them in the search as well. The sisters learn a thing or two about their curse and put that knowledge to good use. 

Sometimes it can be hard to read these prequel stories that are taking place before the series stars. We don't have Aric or Misha, so it can be hard to get back into the swing of things. Or maybe it was the horrendous cold I have at the moment of reading this novella and writing the review! That could be a part of it too!

I am wondering though if some of the "new" characters we met will play a role in the next book. There has to be some sort of reason for this, everything that we just read, right? Right!

I soooo cannot wait for the next Weird Girls book! According to Cecy we should see it sometime in November. Which after that ending from the third one, is still going to be a wait, but at least it's in this calendar year!

Overall Rating 4/5 stars
