The Review: It's no secret that Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of my favourite authors, so it was a given that as soon as I heard about Cursed - I knew I'd read it. And after reading it I can say, it's another great story from this fantastic author!
After a fatal car accident Ember McWilliams died, well that is until her little sister bought her back from the dead, and now Ember's life has changed forever. Anything Ember touches - dies, so she goes out of her way not to touch anyone. But when she accidentally kills a school bully, her life is turned upside down and she soon discovers there are more people like her...with special gifts and soon her life is more danger than ever.
I really liked this book and it is another story from Jennifer that is fantastic. She's got the knack for great story telling and for creating paranormal setting that are easy to imagine with adding that perfect blend of romance and excitement into the story. This story is not completely new to me as ha've read another books with similar story line but Jennifer really makes this book her own and puts her own spins on it.
The character were a joy to read about. Ember and Hayden are unique in their own ways. Their both strong and loveable and I enjoyed their romance the most. It wasn't an instant connection, they grew to love each other but my only problem with them both was, I found that they were slightly forgettable once I finished the book. Even though I enjoyed them while reading, I didn't have that after feeling for them that I do for Jennifer's other characters like; Aiden, Alex, Katy & Daemon. These characters are completely EPIC and I think it's always going to be hard to try and top these characters. I don't think it helped that I read this book after reading Deity and well, that's always going to be a hard act to follow. But don't let that put you off from reading this book. It was still a great read and I'm sure any fan of Jennifer's will love it.
So all in all, Cursed is a gripping and heart-pounding read - one that is full of mystery and enjoyable scenes. If you've never read a book by Jennifer L. Armentrout then I highly recommend you do, I promise, you won't be disappointed.
A big thank you to Spencer Hill Press for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
