Mark my words, Ms. Robson will make her name known in no time with this
great UF series ~Under the Covers
The Weird Girls is an amazing prequel to a new series. This new and upcoming author knows how to deliver suspense, humor, action and it's a surprise that she is just coming out with a novella/novel now. Mark my words, Ms. Robson will make her name known in no time with this
great UF series.
Celia, Taran, Shayna and Emme Wird's parents were cursed and the end results are four children with very special powers. Not necessarily fitting into a specific faction; not just humans, not quiet witches, nor vamps or wolves, the Wird sisters did not have it easy growing up.
They were never the in crowd and even now as adults, the mean girls still treated them as outcasts. But the sisters are tired of it all and had found a life in a serene town of Lake Tahoe. And they will do anything and everything to protect the lives they had come to enjoy even if it means battling a coven of witches. I'm afraid to give too much but bottom line is these girls are down to earth, funny as hell, protect each other and totally kick ass heroines.
Ms. Robson is a new author to watch out for! Her writing is superb and she kept the book flowing with intrigue from the heartfelt Dear Reader until the end of this short story. I can't tell you enough how excited I am with this series. These sisters are one to keep an eye out for in the Urban Fantasy genre.
If you like Amanda Carlson's Full Blooded, Kendra Leigh Castle's Dark Dynasty series and Cassie Alexander's Edie Spence Series, you will love this The Weird Girls.
This novella is a prequel to Cecy Robson's new Weird Girls series and introduces us to the four sisters who are going to star in the series. The girl's mother was cursed by her family for marrying outside her race but the curse backfired and gave each of the sisters unique and unusual abilities. As they were growing up their abilities meant that they never really fitted in, they aren't human but they don't quite fit into any of the supernatural groups either. All that Celia, Taran, Shayna and Emmy really want is to find a place to settle down, a home to call their own where they will be left in peace by humans and supernaturals alike. They think they have found the perfect place but when a fight in a bar brings them to the attention of the local coven of witches they find themselves in trouble. They refuse to give up their new home without a fight though so if that means taking on the whole coven then so be it, after all they have a few tricks of their own to help protect them.
The Weird Girls was an interesting start to the series, we get to learn just enough about the sisters to want to know more, all four girls have distinctive personalities and I'm looking forward to getting to know them better. As the oldest Celia feels responsible for the others and she is very protective, when the witches target the family she will do whatever it takes to keep the others safe even if that means putting herself in the firing line. Considering this is a novella not a full length novel Cecy Robson managed to create an action packed story that left me excited to see what will happen next in Sealed with a Curse. If you're looking for a new urban fantasy series with a group of strong female heroines then I don't think you can go far wrong with this one.
Fortunately, Celia and her sisters are well-equipped to face a coven of witches. Each has her own abilities, a by-product of a curse cast on them in their childhood.
Perhaps because the sisters have no one but each other, Cecy Robson does a great job building a sense of camaraderie between them, nicely depicting how much they care for each other and at the same time displaying how they each have their own unique quirks and traits. The secondary characters were also well fleshed out, and I never got the sense of a cut-out character. The setting was great, invoking images of forested landscapes blanketed in snow as the supernatural story played out.
The writing was fast-paced the action really puts you into the scene. In between and throughout the dangers the protagonist faces, the story was interspersed with humor and wit, all told with a strong narrative voice.
It was easy to be pulled into the story and it definitely makes me look forward to the forthcoming novel. Fans of Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse novels and Jim Butcher (I think I caught a shout-out to the Dresden Files) alike should enjoy this one.
