Genre: Urban Fantasy | PNR
Just when Celia thinks the supernatural world can’t turn deadlier, a new rival emerges, proving just how dangerous a power-hungry were can be.

Since being cursed with unique abilities, Celia Wird and her three sisters have fought the most bloodthirsty preternaturals in the Lake Tahoe region. But Celia’s greatest threat is someone she would have never suspected: Anara, a werewolf Elder who has allowed his hatred for Celia to spiral out of control. In a play for dominance, Anara tortures Celia and gives her an ultimatum: sever her mate bond with pureblood were Aric — or Anara will kill everyone she loves.

From the instant they met, Celia and Aric have shared an attraction that cannot be tamed. So keeping Aric away is impossible, and Aric would sooner die than allow anyone to hurt the woman he loves. Misha, master vampire and Celia’s sworn protector, also finds his way into the chaos, seeking blood from those who have harmed her.

Now Celia and her sisters are caught in the middle of a war driven by lust, fueled by hatred, and destined to end in tragedy. For Anara is a force to be reckoned with, and he will not succumb without robbing Celia of those who hold her heart.


I know your inboxes and feeds have been flooded by reviews for Cecy Robson's A CURSED BLOODLINE so I apologize for adding yet another review. I hope you'll give me a little leeway, my reading schedule went bonkers so I got to Weird Girls 4 late. As a compromise I'll make this brief:

  • Yup, previous reviews didn't lie, A CURSED BLOODLINE is a heart wrenching, emotionally challenging, and tear duct draining, installment. My jaw hurt from clenching it too much because I was trying so hard not to weep due to Celia's ordeals. 

  • The action is relentlessly heart stopping as expected although I'm left scratching my head. Given that these people are supernatural creatures I'm surprised Celia didn't have a miscarriage from all the fighting she did. She doesn't self-heal people and even if her trusty sister, Emme, is there to heal her, she's not always there and she has her limits too. 

  • I've been on Anara's hairy and rabid pelt since the last book and he had me seeing red here. Grrrr!

  • You think Celia and Aric have been through a lot wait til you read what CRobson's got in store for them in A CURSED BLOODLINE. Honestly I had doubts that they will make it (I skimmed my friend's reviews). Now I like a good conflict and a huge monkey wrench thrown in but part of me also felt like the challenges thrown Celia & Aric's were overkill. I think the dog days (it's a joke, Aric) are over though... right?

  • I wish Anara's mini comeuppance was told as it happened instead of hearsay. There's so much build up about his treachery and I'm sure I'm not the only one who was waiting for his ass to be served to him so I felt let down when Danny relayed the events instead of us reading it first hand.

  • Lots of people died and one in particular made me clutch my heart. 

  • There's another prophecy and I want to know how the fuck it's going to be fulfilled now given the circumstances. 

  • I need the next book soon which is already up in NetGalley in case you missed it.

  • Do yourself a favor and read this.

    1. The first one is a bit overwhelming, there's some dumping because of the #of characters but it gets better. Try it!

  2. My goodness, Braine! I have actually not been inundated with reviews of Cursed Bloodline, but you sure made me want to start this series, it sounds fantastic! You know I love a good cry, and feeling the character's anguish means the writing is really good, too! Thanks for the great review, Braine :) Happy reading.

  12. I know! I need to continue this series, I have only listened to the first 2 book and I really liked them, I better hurry up and catch up before I get too far behind. It sounds like the series just kept getting better.

  13. Everyone loves this series! I SO need to read it!

  14. Yes, I agree this one got to be a bit over the top with the angst and drama especially once things were settled and then the whole were council thing happened. That was the too much for me. I didn't like either that neither villain went down on screen. Still it was a heck of a good read, and I am glad I got my copy of the last book featuring Celia and Aric!

    1. I felt some of the drama were unnecessary given the situation is already dire. If not for those I would've given this 5 cauldrons, hands down.

  15. Oh yes..I needed truffles and a blankie while reading this I truly did.

  18. I kept waiting for that thing to happen because all her fighting a stuff, and thought maybe we were in the clear once we got to a certain point, but dammit. And that one death ... gah! WHY, he was my second favorite after Bren.

    1. Right?!?! I had to take a second look at that, made sure I read it right. So brutal but then again it doesn't make sense to keep him on, either he fades to the background or dies. His "purpose" is done

  19. Wow girl!! I just might have to! It sounds fantastic!!

    1. Gah! I don't know how long I can stand this kind of drama! This is why I very rarely read NA

  21. Yep, all that you said. I didn't put that bit in my review about being disappointed to get Anara's comeuppance second hand, but I totally agree. I really needed to feel that viscerally after all he pulled. I can't wait for the next book and I already scarfed it up at NG so I'm ready.

  22. I received an ARC for Cursed Bloodline last week, so I didn't really read your review, Braine, but I'm really glad to now you gave it 4 cauldrons! I'm really looking forward to reading it myself :)

  23. This was a hard book for me to read as well. It was emotionally hard for me, because there were times when I really wanted to wring Anara's neck. Poor Cecila...

  25. Wow. Just reading this review now. Thank you for your tears, angst, and frustrations--I'm serious. From my POV, these are good things. It means you became lost in the world and connected with the characters.
