A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers, #1)A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was an amazing retelling of the classic story Beauty and the Beast. I haven’t always been a huge fan of taking the classics and putting a twist on them. This book stopped me in my tracks.

The characters were down right fantastic! Prince Rhen, Harper and Grey are everything I want in my characters. Dark, mystical, magical, a little flawed, and down right badass. Rhen is ready for the season to end and his torment to be over. When Harper is dragged, literally, into his Emberfall it’s amazing to see his transformation. I was a HUGE fan of Grey. I was rooting for him the entire book. He’s so loyal and trusting! I want to snatch him up and hug him tightly.

Something else that also made me happy was how Brigid portrayed the actual curse bestowed upon the beast. It would have to be very exhausting to live for so many seasons. I probably would have lost my mind if I was Rhen or Grey. Then again, it seems as if they were already on the edge, ready to jump. The cruse was literally what made me fly through pages and stay up past my bedtime. I loved every second of it.

If you’re a fan of YA read this book! It’s a truly amazing read!! It deserves all the stars from me! Cannot wait to read the next installment A Heart So Fierce and Broken. Until then, I’ll be dreaming of Grey!! ❤

Really enjoyed this YA Romance book! The characters were excellent. I love that Veronica and Sawyer aren’t perfectly perfect. They each are experiencing something that separates them from their friends. In turn, it helps to draw them together. It did have a touch of paranormal, which I absolutely loved!

The book is told from dual perspectives and gives an insight on each characters true feelings. The story really flowed and was easy to follow. All in all the writing style was very well written. I loved that Katie used a journal from a real life person who was suffering from TB in the early 1900’s. That was easily one of my favorite parts of the book. Then to learn that Evelyn was a real person, MIND BLOWN!

I highly recommend this one if you’re looking for something lite and fun to read!
