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.


Steamy Supernatural Exciting

Violence Romance

A Curse Unbroken is the fifth book in the Weird Girls series, and is the final Weird Girls novel that is written in Celia's point of view. Be fearful friends ... spoilers are below, as well as my thoughts on this ... interesting close to Celia's story.

I'm going to get my initial thought of this book out of the way first thing: it was weird. I like this series. Supernatural type books are a guilty pleasure of mine, and I can stomach a bit of cheesiness. The Weird Girls series definitely has a cheese layer to it, but it's been tolerable. This one was just ... weird. There were elements I liked. I liked the romance bit of it, of course. I liked that Celia and Aric got a happy ending. I liked that this book FINALLY circles back to the sisters family, and their backfired curse turned gifts. That they get closure. It was enough to get me through the weird storyline of "Shah" ... a mystical rock that grants wishes, but has a personality.

I lost you there, didn't I?

If this were the first book, I probably wouldn't have finished it for that plot line alone. But at the fifth book, I was committed, and I do genuinely care about the characters and their stories.

So the story was a flop for me, BUT, the characters were a win. It was hard to see our core characters struggling, especially with their own inner demons. Celia and Aric's struggles were tough, after all they have been through. Their moments of clarity reminded us that they do still love one another. I predicted at the end of the last book, that since Destiny's prediction hadn't changed, that something would happen, and Celia would be able to have children, and I was happy I was right. Aric and Celia deserved their wedding and their children.

I found this book left A LOT of unanswered questions, which I assume will be answered with future books (the ones from Taran's point of view). Like, what is up with Bren and Emme? Are they sleeping together? Are they mates? I really hope so. Poor Emme needs a happy ending. And what about Gemini and Taran? It's obvious at this point they are separated. From what we know of the mating bond, Gemini can't find her deformity repulsive ... I suspect that he flinches away, and doesn't ouch her arm, more out of guilt than that. But Taran, who has always had her beauty, is insecure. I hope they are able to find their way back to each other in the future books. And we didn't get any closure on the war with the Tribe. So I assume it continues from Taran's point of view. Will there be another spin-off about Aric and Celia's children? We keep being told they will be the ones to save everyone when something big comes ... so I got to assume there will be. And what is Misha doing in Europe? He says he hasn't found a wife, but has an arrangement ... but he makes it pretty clear to Celia that he is still very much in love with her ... which makes me sad for him.
