Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The four magical Wird sisters were each born with individual weird talents due to a curse that went awry. Celia, the eldest, harbors a ferocious inner tigress and has the ability to shift through solid objects and a curious allergy that makes her take on the form of any animal she comes into contact with. Her sisters accompany her to a vampire court where it seems certain she will be executed after being tried for murder. Fortunately, the court has the ability to see what transpired during the killing, and they determine that David, the attacking vampire, had been suffering from bloodlust, so Celia can go free. Now handsome Misha, David’s vampire master, needs to find out how his “family” is being infected with the plague and seeks assistance from the Wird sisters, while the very sexy werewolf Aric is trying to rid the area of vampires. Celia ends up caught between these two gorgeous alpha males in Robson’s fun read for those who enjoy paranormal love triangles. --Diana Tixier Herald

What it's about: This is book one of the Weird Girls series and involves four sisters, who each has powers that are ... well, weird ... and the cause of a backfired curse. When one of the sisters accidentally blows up a vampire (vampires aren't aggressive in this series), they're going to have to figure out what's going on before things get crazier.

Why you should read it: This is a funny book. Seriously, I was laughing and enjoyed reading every page. Celia is complicated and caught between two dominant men, both on opposing sides of the war/issue/complication. The best part, though, to me was the interaction between the sisters. Each has her own personality and story, which makes the sisters witty and amazing individually and together. I'm looking forward to reading more of the Weird Girls and have put the series on my auto-buy list. If you're looking for fun, adventure, a messy love triangle and an awesome family, check out Sealed With a Curse.

The novel starts running right out the gate. And it doesn't give you much time to breathe and catch your breath.

Robson has a way of combining nonstop action and humor that manages not to wear you out. I mean, not only does it not wear you out, but it makes you hunger for more. And in a book about a hunger that destroys families and lives, it's both ironic and enjoyable.

The plot of Sealed isn't as straightforward as I thought it was going to be. I kept feeling like we were coming to the root of the problem, but glancing at my reading percentage I saw I wasn't near the end, so Robson kept me guessing. The guessing didn't frustrate me, and that's key. I like to be curious, not plagued by an incessant enigma.

I love each Wird sister for her own reasons, and Robson does a good job of showing her characters as a family, while still maintaining their personalities. I didn't get the "roll call" effect (where you feel like there are too many character vying for attention and you only remember them due to their name and one specific detail). I remembered the characters as people, like you should. And while I thought the pairing of the sisters with dates so quickly seemed too perfect and too cute, I still liked it. I don't know if that's because of Robson's style, because I thought each hunk was just that: a hunk, or if I was just so caught up in everything else in the book that it didn't matter. But either way--it didn't matter. Her characters are fun. And you can find something you like in someone from the crazy-ethereal-not-so-much-a-love-interest Misha to Gem--werewolf, Warrior, boyfriend and all around cool to Celia herself, who it's hard not to root for, `cause she's just such a bad-ass.

And the cast is diverse.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sealed with a Curse is the first book in debut author Cecy Robson's Weird Girls series and let me tell you, it's fantastic. As soon as you start this book, you are drawn into the action. Cecy writes as though you know what is going on so there isn't any of that `so this is the world and this is what happened before the book started and this is what you should expect so pay attention so you don't miss anything' detail. I like this idea and I think you will too.

Let's talk story. The main story revolves around the vampires in the area and how they are in the midst of a widespread bloodlust epidemic. I know, this is not really new but how it was done was very interesting. And let me tell you, the vampires once they infected...gr-oss! I also like how the werewolves were the protectors of humanity. They were basically the police for the supernatural, and ladies...the werewolves...yum!

The werewolves weren't just yum, they were fantastic! There are four sisters in this book and four werewolves - oh lookie, one for each of them! I found Cecy matched everyone up really well. But she didn't make it too easy for all of the girls as there is one coupling who isn't quite a couple yet and you just keep wondering `why the hell not?' as you read. I am really looking forward to seeing what is up with that in the next book.

The werewolf who stood out the most to me was Aric. Holy hell on a cracker this man was exceptional. Sexy, smart, sexy, alpha without being too much so, sexy... *drool* He is the perfect match for Celia - their chemistry is just incredible. Speaking of Celia, I think it's time to chat about the girls, a.k.a. the weird sisters.

Emme is the youngest. She is crazy shy and the way she talks sometimes made me wonder at her age.

"Sealed" is definitely not the worst paranormal romance book I've ever read. The writing, while somewhat juvenile, was fun enough that I stuck with the story. I liked the idea of four magic sisters, but felt that the author ultimately failed to explore and deliver on her own ideas. Here's why:

- Characterization. To say that all the characters in this book were painted in broad strokes would be an understatement. Calling them two-dimensional would be too charitable. Misha the Vampire is probably the only exception, but that's not saying much. Each sister might as well be named after a fairy tale dwarf: Grumpy, the second sister who only had two modes of communication: shouting obscenities, and shouting more obscenities in a louder voice; Dopey, the third sister who called everyone "Dude" (that was the extent of her personality); and Bashful, the fourth and youngest sister, who is described as timid and afraid through the whole book, yet she manages to save herself and her sisters on multiple occasions. Despite this, she is consistently treated as a half-witted coward by everyone around her. Aric, our main love interest, has two modes: bossy and protective. That is it. This is such a shame, because a more skilled author could have made the characters more complex and interesting. Same goes for the sisters' back story: there are vague references to past pain and suffering, but nothing concrete or with any kind of depth. Nothing that would add a much needed dimension.

- Plot holes and downright goofs. I found it hilarious that Aric, who lived for telling our heroine what to do and was very protective of her, failed to offer the sisters actual protection when it became clear that they were being targeted by the baddies.
