Blurp Blitz and Book Review: A Cursed Moon by Cecy Robson

I am so excited to be a part of this blitz because this happens to be one of my all time favorite urban fantasy series out there and if you haven't read it yet, you really are missing out.  And not only does the series rock, but the author does as well and really, you can't ask for more than that!

Title: A Cursed Moon
Author: Cecy Robson
Series: Novella in the Weird Girls Series (#2.5)
Published By: Penguin (December 3, 2013)
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Book Description:
Meet the furry big brother that the Wird sisters never had…

Bren is a cocky, brash hound of a werewolf who loathes the idea of belonging to Aric’s pack—much less finding a mate. But Bren’s hotheaded behavior lands him in the doghouse when he defies Aric’s authority in front of his pack, bringing up a sore subject that’s bound to make the Alpha wolf’s blood boil…

Luckily for him, no one can stay mad at Bren and his wild charm for long. And when some frightening ghosts launch a hostile paranormal takeover, Bren will team up with Celia Wird to take down the evil ghouls before they hurt someone they both love…

Includes a preview of the upcoming Weird Girls novel Cursed by Destiny!

Bren, Bren, Bren. I already knew I liked your cocky, bad boy heart of gold but now, now I love you. 

I have to say this before really getting into anything else, it says something big about the author's ability to pack so much punch into a novella. To make it feel like it is a complete story in and of itself.

It is no secret that I love this series, the writing captures you, pulls you in and refuses to let go. The fact that it is full of memorable characters who are witty, funny, loving and not to mention kick butt, doesn't hurt either. 

Bren has always been somewhat of a mystery and to finally get not only a background on his past but a look into that perverted mind of his was so much fun! It proved how loyal, fierce and protective he is of the Wird sisters and of Dan. I really couldn't of asked for a better look into him. 

The fact that we not only get some much needed Bren time but also a continuation of the series as a whole with Celia and Aric being very much present throughout was a huge bonus and one that I wasn't expecting.  

I really can't do this series justice. It is just fabulous. It truly has everything a person could possibly ask for in a mind blowing, keep you on the edge of your set one minute and laughing out loud the next read. 

This is a must read series for any fan of urban fantasy, heck this is a must read series for any book lover period. 

This was the perfect read to tide me over for the next book Cursed By Destiny and leave me salivating for more.
