Genre: Urban Fantasy | Paranormal Romance
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 Weird 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.
A CURSED UNBROKEN is a strong follow up considering how epic A Cursed Bloodline was. This marks the end of Celia's arc with the next book being Taran's, which I'm very excited for.
Once again, Cecy Robson started the novel with a considerable body count combined with another lethal curse. And as if this wasn't enough, Celia, Aric, and the rest of their preternatural posse went on a mission to retrieve and rather precocious crystal called, Shah. Yet another epic adventure the Wird sisters can add to their memoir. Per usual, A CURSE UNBROKEN was fast-paced, heart pounding, and littered with emotional turmoil from all fronts.
One would think that Aric and Celia have been through enough. Sorry to burst your bubble, but CRobson is not quite done torturing these two. I know there's a point to yet another test, however IMHO, these two have experienced the pinnacle of relationship trials and to see them go through another one was frustrating and not fun anymore. On a lighter note, I love Loopy Celia, she had a moment of whimsy here and I wish to see more of it come out. Moving forward I hope they move forward with normal couple stuff because more of the same intensity would just be overkill (IMHO). Ultimately they got their HEA. I saw Shah's significance in their relationship from afar, and though I expected it, I'm happy that it happened. After all, there's that tiny thing called the prophecy that these two must fulfill.
Taran and Gemini doesn't seem like they're in a great place either. I'm sure the next one will be angst-filled and most likely, it'll make me want to pull my hair out. Grrrr! I need to look for some sort of a Kevlar vest to protect me from the upcoming feels Taran's book has in store for me.
After the last book I was unsure where the story is gonna go, A Cursed Bloodline is a tough act to follow. I'm happy with this follow up, it's not as intense but it's packed with the good stuff just the same. I love Mrs. Mancuso the best, the old bat never fails to bring in the funnies albeit unintentional. A CURSE UNBROKEN is a good mini-ending/introduction. I look forward to seeing where the series is head with potty mouth Taran leading the pack.
