You can never really hide from what you’re meant to be…
A blood curse. Deadly secrets. A dark stranger.
When her deputy sheriff father goes missing, Lily Turner learns the quaint logging town of Pioneer Falls harbors terrible secrets– an unspeakable past connected to her family and a blood curse her father has hidden from his three daughters.
When Morgan McAllister arrives in town, Lily can’t deny their mutual attraction. But falling for Morgan may derail Lily’s efforts to find her father and to save her younger sisters from the family fate.
Searching for answers deep in the shadowy forests that surround the town, Lily will risk everything to uncover the truth. As hunters are exposed and rivals for the territory circle the Turner sisters, no one in Pioneer Falls is safe– especially with the full moon rising.
From the author of Never Cry Werewolf comes this suspenseful new series full of dark secrets and heartfelt romance.
This was my very 1st Werewolf book to read. If I knew that from the start, I wouldn’t have read it. ( P.S: I consider blurbs to be spoilers, so I only read the 1st line.) However, I am glad that I got to go on a blind date with this book because I absolutely loved it.
This is a great book to pick if you are stuck in a reading slump. It is a story that you can bing read and finish in one day, without feeling bored or tired of the events.
A Curse so dark is a paranormal romance YA novel that begins with Lily’s father going missing. When her father goes missing, she finds a letter from him that implies crazy, illogical things. The more she searches for her father, the more she realizes that the content of that letter isn’t a work of fiction, but a dangerous reality. But how can she explain this to her sisters without sounding like a lunatic, and should she trust the people who claim to be her friends? You will have to read the book to figure this out.
One of my favorite things about this novel is the character credibility. The author did a brilliant job of portraying Lily’s wavering emotions and priorities. She isn’t a blind sheep in love who will believe anything without questioning the turn of events.
The only thing that didn’t sit well with me was how Lily was able to identify a specific person in their wolf form by looking into their eyes. It didn’t sit well with me because that wasn’t a family member or a friend; it was someone that she met once or twice. However, I loved the fact that she was able to look into the eyes of a beast, and recognize the people she truly knew.
This reminded me of an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (MY FAVORITE TV SHOW) when Giles was transformed into an animal. Buffy was able to recognize Giles by looking into his eyes. But Riley, her new boyfriend, wasn’t able to realize that Faith was in Buffy’s body.
I really enjoyed A Curse so Dark. It has been a while since I have read a paranormal story, and Heather Davis satisfied my lust for paranormal with this book. I can’t wait to read the sequel, which comes out in less than a week.
People are comparing this book to CC Hunters’ ( Shadow Falls ) series, but I personally believe that A Curse so Dark is so much better.
I received an eARC in exchange with an honest review.
