How I Got the Book: Review Copy

Summary of the Book:

No rest for the wicked… or the cursed.

I didn’t mean to steal the Bloodstone from the De Morel’s crypt.
Scratch that, I did mean to steal it.
Until I realized it was a curse-magnet that only comes off if I, along with a jolly trio, successfully defeat four curses.
If any of us fail, I’m dead.
I’ve never been a glass half-empty sort of person, but my glass looks in dire need of a refill right about now.
The only highlight of this wicked treasure hunt: feisty, entitled Cadence de Morel.

I was raised on tales of magic, in a small town reputed to be the birthplace of French witchcraft.
Did I believe all the stories I heard? Absolutely not. I mean, if magic existed, Maman wouldn’t have died, and Papa wouldn’t be stuck in a wheelchair, right?
The night Slate Ardoin waltzes into my life, wearing a ring he stole from my mother’s grave, I call him a monster.
But then I meet real ones, and Slate, well . . . he becomes something else to me.
Something frustrating to live with but impossible to live without.
Something I will fight for, no matter the cost.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I had been hearing great things about this book before I got a chance to read it. So when I got my hands on it I had to read it right way. It did have a bit of a slow start, but there was something that pulled me along wanting to know what happens to Candence and Slate and the curse. There is mystery, slow paced romance, magic and wonder that kept me reading. The characters are interesting and the world they live in is amazing. It makes me want to look into other books by this author.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
