Cursed By Destiny

by Cecy Robson

Published by Signet

Book # 3 in the Weird Girls Series

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—

with one tiny exception: they're products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, weird…... Celia’s a girl in trouble.  Her heart is bound to Aric, but he is a pureblood were who must deny her or risk condemning his species to extinction.  And that’s just her love life. She’s also been called to take down a group of demon terrorists looking to overthrow the paranormal world. (No pressure.) In order to bring them down, Celia must ally herself to Misha, the master vampire who has made no secret of his desire for her. And if that weren’t enough misfortune for one girl, a clairvoyant’s prediction could destroy Celia and Aric’s love for good. The only way to protect the world from unbridled supernatural terrorism is for Celia to bind herself to her destined mate. And that doesn’t appear to be Aric…

Cursed by Destiny is the third book in the Weird Girls series, and is written from Celia's point-of-view. The story kicks off not too long after the novella, A Cursed Moon. It continues with the war between The Tribe, filled with demon lords and angry lone weres and vamps, as well as dark witches, and the Alliance, a combination of the worlds weres, vampires, witches, and the Wird girls.

There is a lot in this book. Lets start with the war. In book 2, in the end, we know Celia's leaves to move in with Misha. We don't know why. We know she considers him a good friend, and he wants to be with her. I'm not sure what I was expecting with the move, but was pleasantly surprised that Misha actually hires her to work for the vampires in the Alliance, and trains her to be stronger, to fight harder, and encourages her to learn how to control all her abilities (which leads to a rather funny part where she turns into a cocker spaniel). And she does become quite the weapon against the Tribe. While she suspects that there is someone else behind the Tribe's hate for her, she does further encourage it by killing Tribe-masters. By the end of the book, the Tribe is heavily decimated, but still active.

On to Misha ... I like Misha. Do I want him and Celia to end up together? No ... but I do genuinely like the guy. He does love Celia, in his own way, and their friendship is something special. He has a lot of faith in her, and recognizes how powerful she is and can become. I do like how he constantly flirts with her. He sure is persistent.

Her sisters and the weres are as close as ever ... except for poor, sweet Emme and Liam. That sucked. I figured since book 2, when Liam couldn't tell Emme she was his mate, that their relationship was on the chopping block. They were incredibly sweet with one another, but I get Emme's feelings on the matter. It sucks to love someone, and worry that one day, he will find his mate, and leave her. She wanted to save herself now before she got in deeper. It was heartbreaking to see how sad Liam was. I was honestly worried that Shayna had actually died, and it was a nice little twist that Koda was able to transfer some of his were essence to her, so she survived, and we find out at their wedding.

The title comes into play here ... cursed by Destiny. We see Destiny again, and learn, on top of her very painful mind reading ability, she can also see the future. So she tells Celia her destiny ... that the children of her tigress and the lion would bring about the end of the dark ones. Anyone else kinda likes Tye? I promise I'm still team Aric, but Tye isn't half bad.

Aric and Celia ... oh man. I get that there are consequences to leave the pack ... but why would you want to stay in a place that is making you so miserable, you are at risk of turning wolf forever? That being said, the small moments Aric and Celia have that show their never ending love for one another make it easier to get through. Especially when Aric is able to go again
