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.
Cecy pretty much ripped my heart out and stomped it to pieces with A Cursed Bloodline, so you can understand my trepidation when it came time to read A Curse Unbroken. However, knowing it was the last of Celia’s books, I had faith Cecy wouldn’t do us wrong. Guess what. She didn’t!
There has never been a shortage of action in the Weird Girls series, and that continues to hold true in this book. Celia and her sisters are sent on a mission by Misha to obtain a very special and unique artifact. The thing is, everyone wants it for the power it holds.
Celia and her sisters have been put through a whole lot of crap. Not just since they were outed to the paranormal world, but the majority of their lives. What’s great though, is how everything is pulled together, coming full circle. It’s instances like this that make me wonder if the author had the entire series arc planned out, because all the pieces from previous books – including novellas – fit together, completing the puzzle. I love that!
I don’t know if it was just Celia’s overall growth, but I think this was the most I liked Celia. I mean, I’ve always liked her, but she just seemed to have blossomed. That sounds lame as hell, but I can’t think of another way to put it. Or maybe it was those “special cartwheels” she did. Now that was funny! Seriously though, Celia rocks in A Curse Unbroken.
When it comes to Aric, he certainly has the whole alpha thing going on. There were times I couldn’t decide whether to be irritated with him or feel sorry for him, but his patience was tested for sure when it came to Celia. Mostly I found it kind of funny. I’m just mean like that. Celia and Aric fought hard to be together, though, so they deserve a HEA. Right?
It’s funny, because when the vampires made their appearance in the first book, I thought they were going to be on the corny side, especially when it came to the “Catholic school girls.” Wrong! They’ve turned out to be my favorites, with the exception of Bren. No one outshines Bren. But I swear, the vampires crack me up! I’m definitely going to miss them.
At first I wasn’t fully happy with how it ended, because there were unresolved issues regarding Celia’s sisters. More specifically Taryn. She’s my girl, so I hate that she’s in such a bad place. Then I remembered that Taryn will have her own books! So I’m super happy again.
As much as it sucks to see a good series end, it does so perfectly with A Curse Unbroken.
