Blog Tour Book Review and Giveaway: A Curse Unbroken by Cecy Robson



I am so excited to be a part of this tour because not only is Cecy one of my most favorite authors, but this is one of my top ten UF series of all times.

I am so sad that this is the end of Celia's story but so very thankful at the same time at there will be a spin off series with the sister because I am so not ready to say good bye to this world. 






Series: Book Five in the Weird Girls Series

Published By:  Loveswept (March 10, 2015)

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Tour By: Tasty Book Tours

Book Description:
Fans of Keri Arthur will love the Weird Girls, four sisters cursed with supernatural powers. In Cecy Robson’s latest urban fantasy romance, the search is on for an unholy grail, while evil is licking its wounds—and looking for revenge.

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.






About the Author:



CECY (pronounced Sessy) ROBSON is the Penguin Random House New Adult author of Once Perfect, Once Loved, and Once Pure, and the award-winning author of the Weird Girls Urban Fantasy Romance series. A self-proclaimed professional napper, Cecy counts among her talents a jaw-dropping knowledge of useless trivia, the ability to make her hair big, and a knack for breaking into song despite her family's vehement protests. A writer, registered nurse, and mother living in the South, Cecy enjoys spending time with her family and silencing the yappy characters in her head by telling their stories. 


This is one of those series that stays with you, the type that you think about long after you have put the book down, long after it is over and way more than you should. It is the type that leaves you wanting for more because you weren't ready for it to be over and it sadly and truly,  makes it almost impossible to pick up something else up afterward because you just know it won't compare with the greatness you just devoured.

This is a series that I am very sad to see end, even though I know the spin off is going to be just as great. I love the Wird sisters and while I agree that it is time to hear their stories, it is going to be so very hard to say goodbye to Alric and Celia and because of that, I wanted to cherish every minute of this read. I wanted to read it slowly over time but with all books Cecy, that just didn't happen.

I did cherish it and I did appreciate it but of course I also had to devour it.

Cecy never ceases to amaze me how she can break my heart one chapter and have me laughing out loud the next (sparkly Celia, I am talking about you!). 

I knew this was going to be a hard read, an emotional read but I still wasn't prepared for it. How do you say goodbye to a couple that you adore? To those characters who are now like family, the very best kind of family, the ones you choose rather than the ones you were stuck with?

I don't want to give anything away but this was a bittersweet read. One filled with a whole lot of emotions, mine and theirs and I loved every single minute of it. I couldn't have asked for a better ending. One still undetermined but one filled with love and hope as well.

I am so satisfied with Celia and Aric and their happily ever after. But more than that, I am excited that this isn't it. There is still so much left to do because evil is put at bay and I am excited to take that next step, that next adventure with the next sister. 

I can't wait.

  8. This series has been on my list for ages! I'm a little sad that the cover is so romancy though, I don't really like romance looking covers. But I can get past that, especially since it's not the first in the series and I'll be hooked by the time I get to it.
