Thursday Book Review : Dark Curse

Something new I'm trying, as I can do them, is a once a week book review, on Thursday. As I read books, if I can remember and squeeze it into my other duties, I'll post a short note here.

Lara Calladine is haunted by childhood memories of being held prisoner in an ice cave and kept sane by the whispered stories told to her by her imprisoned aunts. They instilled mage and Carpathian magic deep within her and then helped her escape. She has spent years searching for the cave in hopes of finding the answers to the riddle of her past as well as finding her aunts who may have given their lives saving her.

Nicolas De La Cruz has returned to the Carpathian Mountains--his homeland--on orders from his eldest brother, Zacarias, to bring news of a conspiracy to the prince of their people. He is weary of his long existence and plans to end it away from his brothers where they will be unable to stop him once he has fulfilled his duty.

Lara and Nicolas paths collide in an explosive adventure that rocks the Carpathian world.


After a not too thrilled rendition in Possession, I absolutely felt the Dark series was back on track with Curse. Considering for the length of the series that only two books, in my mind, have had shortcomings, I would have to say Ms. Feehan is an immaculate world-builder and teller of tales. Able to draw you in and 'live' the story through the characters, I felt compelled to get to the end of the story to discover the ending. An absolute page turner with more twists than the California coastline!
