Release Day Review: A Curse Unbroken by Cecy Robson
A Curse Unbroken by Cecy Robson
Weird Girls #5
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.
Whew! What a whirlwind. Each one of these books are incredibly intense. That being said, this time around it did seem to go a bit smoother than the previous installment. I was more than on the edge of my seat the entire book, but it didn't seem to go overboard in the violence like the last one, which I appreciated. There's only so much a character can go through before it's unbelievable, so I really enjoyed the better balance in this one. Celia was tried and tested but it didn't go into that excessive territory and left me more than satisfied.
I'm rather sad to see Celia's story come to an end, but in the same token, am very excited to see Taran's story coming up. Where Celia has been mostly level headed and powerful, Taran is like a pressure cooker waiting to blow at any moment. It should prove to be an interesting addition to this series, that I can't wait to read. But back to Celia, I'm happy with how things turned out and am content with this semi close. Now it's time for a new journey and I can't wait.
