Early Review: Sealed With A Curse by Cecy Robson

Series: The Weird Girls 1
Format: ARC (NetGalley)
Release Date: December 31, 2012
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository 

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls-with one tiny exception: they're products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, weird...

The Wird sisters are content to avoid the local vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region-until one of them blows up a vampire in self- defense. Everyone knows vampires aren't aggressive, and killing one is punishable by death. But soon more bloodlust- fueled attacks occur, and the community wonders: are the vampires of Tahoe cursed with a plague?

Celia reluctantly agrees to help Misha, the handsome leader of an infected vampire family. But Aric, the head of the werewolf pack determined to destroy Misha's family to keep the region safe, warns Celia to stay out of the fight. Caught between two hot alphas, Celia must find a way to please everyone, save everyone, and oh yeah, not lose her heart to the wrong guy-or die a miserable death. Because now that the evil behind the plague knows who Celia is, it's coming for her and her sisters. This Wird girl has never had it so tough.


SEALED WITH A CURSE by Cecy Robson, the first full-length novel in her debut Urban Fantasy series, The Weird Girls, is extra special to me with cherry on top because the Wird sisters are all nurses! My sister is a nurse so that little character tidbit alone made the story more endearing and very special to me.


Back to the story. The blurb pretty much covers the plot and aside from the badassery these "cursed" sisters provide, I honestly didn't expect the story to be funny! Cecy has a wicked sense of humor varying from dry to outright comedic! It took me off guard because The Weird Girls Novella, though fantastic, didn't display the same level of silly and acerbic banter the sisters shared in SEALED WITH A CURSE. Taran in particular had me guffawing out loud with her outrageous and haughty responses. I can't wait for this girl's book to come out!

And when there's a bunch of cute girls, the hot guys aren't far behind. The men are simply divine! Misha is Eric-Northman hot and Aric and the rest of his were pack are drop-dead gorgeous. I seriously had butterflies whenever these guys are in the scene. What stood out the most was Celia and Aric's close encounter outside the club, sure it may sound typical and probably even cheesy but the way Cecy described it, time standing still and intense eye contact just had me clutching my ereader tight coupled with a velvety warm feeling in my belly followed by a loud EEEEE! Call me a hopeless romantic but it was hella good! Add Celia's careful flirting and it was chocolate-y all the way! Aric is yummy, like melt-in-your-mouth-good-as-truffles yummy...

And true to its Urban Fantasy flavor, SEALED WITH A CURSE has a lot of magic, ass kicking and door busting scenes. The story is pumped with adrenalin plus with four sisters sharing the limelight, the story is far from stale and boring. Each sister has her own personality: Shayna has the surfer attitude; Emme is as sweet as honey; Taran the diva; and Celia the indomitable big sister. None of these girls are cookie-cutter supers too, I have to admit I was a little skeptical that their abilities sound a little comic-book-RPG at first but Cecy's outside-the-box approach really worked in her favor. These sisters are incomparable and reading their stories is beyond entertaining I can't wait for book 2, A Cursed Embrace (June 2013), to come out.

So if you're tired of the usual Urban Fantasy story with vampires, witches, weres and hunters, give SEALED WITH A CURSE a gander. I'm betting my balls you'll love it!

Favorite Taran Quotes:

Screw that, Celia. I'll go. It's my fault we're here. Besides, my badass shields will protect me from that fashion emergency.

I'm not having the Prince of Darkness for a brother-in-law--no matter how hot he is.

The hell she can't Let me spell this out for you. Celia is not birthin' no babies with fangs.

Saving the world sucks donkey balls!
