Sealed with a Curse - Book Review

Sealed with a Curse (Weird Girls #1)
by Cecy Robson

What is it about:
Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other twenty-something girls—with one tiny exception: They're the products of a curse that backfired and gave each of them unique powers that make them, well, a little weird…

The Wird sisters are content to avoid the local vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region—until one of them blows up a vampire in self-defense. Everyone knows vampires aren't aggressive, and killing one is punishable by death. But soon more bloodlust-fueled attacks occur, and the community wonders if the vampires of Tahoe are plague-ridden.

Celia reluctantly agrees to help Misha, the handsome leader of an infected vampire family. But Aric, the head of the werewolf pack determined to destroy Misha's family to keep the area safe, warns Celia to stay out of the fight. Caught between two hot alphas, Celia must find a way to please everyone, save everyone, and—oh, yeah—not lose her heart to the wrong guy or die a miserable death. Because now that the evil behind the plague knows who Celia is, he's coming for her and her sisters.

This Wird girl has never had it so tough.

What did I think of it:
This is a fun read.

I really enjoyed the story and loved the world building. There's constantly something going on, and the Wird sisters are in the middle of the action.

I do confess I didn't really warm up to either Misha or Aric, Celia's love interests. This was mainly because I thought the love interests of Celia's sisters were much more interesting. I especially loved Koda, the love interest of Celia's sister Shayna. I kept hoping he would start playing an even bigger role in the story.

But Celia's love life is only a small part of the story, so I didn't mind I wasn't particularly interested in that part of the story. There was more than enough going on to keep me interested and entertained, even though it wasn't a surprise to me who or what was behind everything.

So all in all this was an enjoyable read, and I will most probably continue reading this series, if only to find out more about Koda ;-)

Why should you read it:
It's a fun and enjoyable UF read.
