5/5 Review: Cursed By Destiny by Cecy Robson



The part of the story I enjoyed the most was the dynamics between the sisters. I want more and more of the sisters! Each is so different in personality but none of them is annoying (at least to me). I think if I had to pick one I wanted to be, it would be Shayna. She's just so sneaky with her toothpicks (just go read the book!), although I don't think I can go around calling everyone, "dude". I can see so much potential in the series: individual stories about each sister, stories from the vampire world, stories about the weres...

Speaking of weres, there was mention of a werewolf alpha, Aric, in the synopsis. Oh, my..... I do love my alphas! Aric is definitely a new book boyfriend of mine!! He's hot, protective, but he's not perfect. I like a man with a flaw or two (case in point, my number one boyfriend, Rehvenge, but I digress...). Our other leading man, Misha, reminds me a little of Mircea Basarab (from Karen Chance's Cassie Palmer series) and Eric Northman, thrown in a blender 50/50. Cocky, smart, and definitely a Northern European god in the looks department.

Overall, I think Cursed By Destiny has the perfect mix of urban fantasy: 33% Mystery/world building - 33% Kick butt fight scenes - 33% Romance. This is definitely a lighter, fun read. Don't go looking for a deeper meaning to life or the mysteries of the universe explained. This is a let-your-mind-go and escape to where ordinary girls can get "cursed" with extraordinary powers and just have fun, damn it. I bet someday the girls won't think it's a curse.  recommend you to clear your calendar and have the delivery menu ready when you are reading Cursed By Destiny because after you start reading it you won't be able to put it down until you reach its very last word.
