Book Description

A centuries-old curse, a mysterious amulet, and a young love reignite a vendetta that had died down long ago…

When seventeen-year-old Samantha goes on a school-exchange trip to Scotland, she takes with her an old pendant that she found amongst her grandmother’s belongings. As soon as she arrives at her host family’s home, she is drawn into the country’s tales and myths. Then she meets the dangerously attractive Payton –a mysterious Highlander who soon conquers Sam’s heart. Caught up in her feelings, she doesn’t realize how much danger she’s in. Payton’s past holds a dark secret. A secret that has bound together both their families’ fates for hundreds of years and is now also endangering Sam’s life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kinda cute, probably good YA story April 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't usually go for teen/YA books, but this one had (I thought) an interesting setting and characters that could have made it go to the next level, as in being a decent read for anyone.

Okay, it did have cool elements. BUT...the heroine, exchange student Sam. Like, OMG, you guys, she totally is so desperate for male attention. She will DIE if he doesn't say she's pretty. "Really? You think I'm pretty?" Tee hee. She lies to go meet a strange boy in a strange country. She pines for him even when he's inexplicablly distant and angry and ditches her at a pub (but OMG, you guys, she totally didn't even get carded!).

The cool premise, of a family suffering a 270-year-old curse of bleak, cold immortality takes a back seat to the young heroine's dithering over, "Should I call him? No, he should call ME!" and her sudden blinding belief that she is in love. As far as I know, she doesn't know the guy's last name and she met him him maybe a week or two ago.

Girls, listen up. That is NOT love. That's INFATUATION. Do NOT go and change your lives because you develop intense feelings for a boy over the summer. OMG! Those will totally fade. Seriously.

Some rather cursory descriptions of local landmarks and history are thrown in, more as filler. The mystery, the curse, the history are elaborated on somewhat, but...the story never leads up the the fascinating potential of the first chapter.

So. I realize this girl is 17 and hasn't yet kissed a boy. But can girls REALLY not think of anything except how being near that special boy makes their no-no area warm up? Even with a huge supernatural event going on, and danger, and, y'know, stuff like that.

The other issue is the same I have with Edward Cullen. This 19-year-old boy is really a 289-year-old man.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Curse: Touch of Eternity April 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Thank you so much for this English translation! I wish I understood the Gaelic language so I could hear those phrases in the book. This story was totally enthralling from the minute I read the first sentence. I could not stop until I finished it. Yes, for some, this may be a fantasy. Since I believe in limitless possibilities, there is a ring of truth to the story. At any rate I believe in the feelings.

This is a story about a young girl going to Scotland as an exchange student to learn more about Scotland's history only to find out how own life was interwoven into that history. I could feel my own heart swirling in the mists. The story also gives you thoughts into your own history to think of how your ancestors are a part of you now. I loved the book and am looking forward to reading any sequels to this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Page Turner August 26, 2013
By Lisa
Format:Kindle Edition
Although this book was written with the teen reader in mind, i found it to be quite a well written story. The Curse: Touch of Eternity was very original in story and setting. The author, Emily Bold has written a story you can't tear yourself away from. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys history and supernatural type books but is tired of all the vampire junk that has taken over the teen market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Curses! August 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although I had never heard of The Curse: Touch of Eternity series, I was intrigued by the synopsis and ordered the book. Boy! I'm sure happy I did. Emily Bold weaves an additive tale of Scotland, of life everlasting, of murder, and love in a novel well worth the read! You can believe I will read more of the Curses and other books written by this author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Page Turnner September 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was a really good, and interesting book. Quite different setting than the books that I am used to and the language was also cool to read about. The author created great characters and had a wonderful plot where I was interested in the story. I'd like to read the next book as well if it is translated, yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interested from the start. August 12, 2013
By Sharon

I really enjoyed the story and hope she will write another one that continues this one. It had romance and intrigue. No foul language which is always nice not to read. It was not mushy but just right. I thought it was great.
