My Take

I found the story enchanting and found myself in love with their world. The author’s vivid descriptions made me feel like I was there. There’s a lot of mythology and mythological creatures which fascinated me a lot. The writing is good and easy to comprehend so that is a plus.

However, I had a problem following the plot and understanding what it was all about. There are major events happening at a really short period that I was left confused. The characters are okay, I just had a problem understanding them.

The Curse is a short novella that was quick to get through. I tried to keep in mind that it’s just a short part of a bigger story that is told in Heir of Fire and that kept me very much interested.

“Power is a wonderful thing Ari. External appearance means nothing.”

If you like Fantasy and Paranormal creatures with lots of mythology, then this is a book for you.
