Cursebreakers #1| 484 pages | YA Fantasy
Fall in love, break the curse.
Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year, Prince Rhen, the heir of Emberfall, thought he could be saved easily if a girl fell for him. But that was before he turned into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. Before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, Harper learned to be tough enough to survive. When she tries to save a stranger on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s pulled into a magical world.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. A prince? A curse? A monster? As she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.
For the good of Emberfall, for the good of all.
Ahhh, this book. As soon as I started A Curse So Dark and Lonely I was completely immersed in the world of Emberfall. It’s a quick and captivating read that will draw you in from the get go. One of the things I loved the most about this novel was the characters, I loved the relationship between Harper, Rhen, and Grey. Honestly, I can’t even decide who I think Harper should be with… Harper and Grey have some serious chemistry going on though. As you can probably tell, Grey was my favourite character out of the three, or as Harper likes to call him, Scary Grey. I just loved him so much ❤
A Curse So Dark and Lonely is written in a dual perspective from the points of view of Harper and Rhen. I would have loved to have read from Grey’s perspective but that’s for the next book! Seeing Harper struggling with the fact she missed her family, but was also starting to become comfortable in Emberfall, and her inner debates over this made her seem so much more real.
