Okay, time for a real review.
The story arc was incredible and completely unpredictable. Each character experienced their own internal struggles as well as the forces surrounding them and evolved from them. I enjoyed the vampire hunters immensely. You see each one with their own past and strong mindsets take in the world surrounding them and deal with it in a completely different way. The other supporting characters were interesting and kept the story moving at a fast pace. I couldn't put it down.
Oh Maxine. She went through the most difficult struggle as she tried to determine what in her life she wanted to save, the struggling souls of Boston or the man she loves. But if she destroys the man she loves is she not saving him from his curse as well? What will she do?
Will Dracula finally embrace the death he desires at the hands of the woman who loves him so deeply she'll release him from his curse?
This story was just as good as all the rest and I adore her style of writing. Wonderful scenery description, real feeling characters, and deep emotional dilemmas. Great read.
"Ignorance is their greatest sin.”
"You do love him, then—you just do not know how to do it.”
"It was the possibility that some souls no longer deserved mercy."
While there is passionate romance there are themes of individual agency and independence. Kingsley smartly never allows her female characters to simply be a superficial product of their romantic partner. Love is a choice that makes characters a liberated and fuller version of themselves.
Maxines understanding of the world and herself has evolved and she becomes more bold and sure of herself. Vlad is also far from one dimensional and continues to be a perfectly morally gray and complex character that just leaps off the page. I just can't get enough of him. The vampires Walter and Zadock are also extremely endearing. I will be reading more from this author!
"Curse" brings more horror and violence than "Heart" but it works well with the narrative - for Maxine to truly love and accept Vlad, she needs to see what he is and what he is capable off. You can feel how torn she is throughout the journey and you can understand why Vlad is pushing her; that is what I look for in a story - make the reader empathise with your characters.
Another great aspect is the supporting characters that you grow to love (looking at you Walter) I loved the sub plots with the hunters and especially the story of Bella and Mordecai (so sweet).
I have to make a mention of the beautifull book cover. I am one of those people who will feel that if you have a great story to tell, your cover must sell it.
