Editorial Reviews

Review

"Complex world-building and compelling characters. Egan's creatures are sexy, soulful and dangerous!"--Molly Harper, author of Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs and How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf

Demon's Curse goes straight to the keeper shelf, and I'll make a place beside it for the sequels. One luscious, well told story.”--Grace Burrowes, New York Times bestselling author

"Egan weaves a compellingly dark Regency world of shifters, fey, and passion. A richly layered world with beguiling characters and an intriguing plot. Taut with suspense and mystery, this new series is not to be missed. Alexa Egan promises to be a star of the genre!" (Kathryne Kennedy, critically acclaimed author of The Elven Lords series)

"Nothing beats a well-done paranormal historical and this book is better than well-done. Riveting from the first page to the last, it's filled with characters I want to know better. Egan has created a world I can't wait to get back to!" (Melissa Mayhue)

"Sexy shifters, ancient blood feuds, and a heroine who won’t quit her man make DEMON’S CURSE a must read. I could not put it down!" (Caridad Pineiro, USA Today bestselling author)

“Newcomer Egan beautifully paces the slow evolution of Bianca and Mac’s relationship . . . The complex possibilities in the relationships between the races will leave readers eagerly anticipating future volumes.” (Publishers Weekly)

"Replete with dark, sensuous and honorable characters and a fast-paced, intricate plot, this highly romantic and exciting story is a winner. 4 1/2 Stars." (Romantic Times)

It wasn't realistic for me to accept.
Dark Faerie Tales
The ending was intense, and I had a hard time putting the book down once I got to the last few chapters.
Mother/Gamer/Writer
YES it's the beginning of the series, but there were times I felt lost.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Actress Bianca Parrino had no idea going to her friend Adam's funeral would plunge her into a paranormal world. Captain Mac Flannery is Imnada, a secret race of shape shifters. Even though his kind turned their backs on him after he was cursed by a Fae, Mac thinks it's vital to his people's survival that they remain hidden. Fearing his comrade revealed himself to Bianca, Mac inserts himself into her life to see if she knows anything as he looks for Adam's murderer. Not one to sit idly by, Bianca joins the search and uncovers a world she never knew existed. A world that, despite a growing attraction, she has no place in.

In Regency era England, Bianca's independent thinking is ahead of her time. Free from a abusive marriage, she's a successful actress who has closed her heart off from love and wishes to live alone. A panther shifter, Mac was shunned by his own people after he was cursed. Since then, he's grown cold and wishes for nothing more than the end of his curse so he may return to the clan that brutally cast him out. Having read similar books, it was easy to predict that Bianca and Mac would alternate from giving into the burning desire and denying it exists because they can't possibly have a future together. Neither the romance nor either of these characters are terrible, both are strong individuals who really care for each other but have obstacles to overcome, but it's nothing I haven't read before.

What attracted me in was the Imnada. They've hidden themselves away after a war with the Fae that nearly killed them all. Now, it's their ancient way of thinking that's inching them closer and closer to extinction. There are those who believe, including Mac towards the end, that things need to change before their kind is no more.

I'd probably give this 2.5 stars if I could but I didn't like it enough to upgrade to 3.

Mac is part of an elite military unit who are gathering intelligence during the war, they are also part of a secretive race of shapeshifters called the Imnada. The Imnada were supposedly wiped out by the Fae related Others centuries ago but in reality they have just worked hard to remain in hiding. When threatened with discovery Mac's team do what they have to to protect their clan but as a result of their actions they find themselves cursed. Now with one of his until murdered Mac believes someone has uncovered their identity and that he is their next target. Bianca is a popular actress but when rumours link her to the murder of her close friend she is asked to take leave from her job. She is grieving for her friend and desperate to prove her innocence but she can only do that with Mac's help. Can they work together to catch Adam's killer and possibly find a way to break the curse?

After reading the prequel novella Awaken the Curse I had high hopes for Demon's Curse when I picked it up but unfortunately I found myself feeling let down by the time I finished it. I normally love the combination of a paranormal romance with a historical setting but in this case the book just really struggled to hold my attention and I even found myself skimming sections which is something I never usually do. Firstly I was surprised to see that there was no link between this story and the prequel novella, I wasn't expecting to see much of the previous couple but I did think that Lucas might have an important role to play in the series so it confused me that he wasn't even mentioned.

Originally Reviewed At:Mother/Gamer/Writer
Rating: 3 out of 5 Controllers
Reviewer: Ariel

Demon's Curse, the first novel from Alexa Egan and the first novel in the Imnada Brotherhood series was not a bad first novel, but it wasn't great either.

Demon's Curse tells the tale of Mac Flannery, a shapeshifter from a race called the Imnada and Bianca Parrino, a beautiful actress. Mac, along with three other Imnada, Adam, Gray, and David, participated in Waterloo, where Adam slaughtered a Fey-blood, magical beings that have been at odds with the Imnada since the days of King Arthur. The Fey placed a curse on the four soldiers, forcing them to shift every night rather than them shifting by choice. A year later, Adam is murdered and now Mac is convinced that someone is after the Imnada.

I can't quite put my finger on it, but this novel really just didn't grab me. To begin with, the pacing is really odd. Some parts felt really speedy and other parts felt as though they dragged on forever. Because Egan has created a world of Imnada, I expected there to be a little more explanation as to the race and some of the terminology used, but I had to pick up most of it from context. I did find out at the end that there's a glossary, so definitely look back to that if you ever get confused. The few battle scenes that were in the novel I expected to be really drawn out and detailed, and they weren't, which is good or bad depending on how much you care about the battle scenes.

The relationship between Mac and Bianca just seemed random to me. They initially come together because Mac hears the rumors that Bianca was Adam's mistress, and Mac assumes she knows something about Adam's death.
