Taking place after the destruction of the Warloc, Cursed in Shadow follows Celeste and Brock as they journey back to Brock's home of Tamlon to find the prophecies of the four, because of course defeating the Warloc can't be enough. Now they are going to have to deal with someone who is just a tad bit miffed by the Warloc's defeat. His protégé, his progeny. And boy is she going to make her first act against our hero and heroine a big one.
Of course, though, before this first act, we get to see the general reaction of the elves toward Celeste and Brock bringing her to Tamlon. You see, due to the fact that humans are basically forbidden to enter there, she makes quite a few enemies by basically doing nothing. Just the fact that she exists inside their land is reason enough. And Brock isn't fairing any better. He already had enemies before he brought her there, and now...well, this isn't really helping matters.
They won't be staying long, thankfully, as they need to find some important players to aid in ridding the land of the sickness and evil that is rotting its very core. One of which was long thought dead...Brock's very own long lost twin sister.
But before they leave, you know that big first act that I told you about? Well, the curtain is rising and Brock is going to get quite a surprise. A very revenge-filled surprise.
Things are getting quite juicy...
This is kind of the perfect quencher of my literary thirst between the first and second books in this series. It segue's wonderfully by allowing the little pit stop in Tamlon. A very important pit stop, mind you, because it kind of allows a little introduction to who our characters will be dealing with now. Someone who has learned from the Warloc certainly cannot be good.
This story also delves a little bit more into Brock and Celeste's relationship. Not just physically, mind you, although it does get a bit steamy, but also how they truly feel about one another. But I can't help but get a bad feeling about this. Something is not sitting right with me. It is unexplainable, but I think that maybe one of them could possibly turn against the other. I don't know, but it could be one of them could very well join the dark side of this fight. They do have cookies...so I guess that would appeal?
I don't know, it is just a feeling.
But anyway...READ THIS!!! And if you happen to read this one before The Garnet Dagger, READ THAT ONE TOO!!! I can only imagine how the rest of the story will play out...and I am quite excited to find out.
In the first book we meet Celeste of the Elvin prophecy. This book continues with Brock and Celeste's journey back to Tamlon, the hidden Elvin world, shrouded in a veil that protects it from the prying eyes of the humans. Tamlon is a most magical place amongst the trees, with danger, adventure, and beauty around every bend. And while Celeste is accompanied by Brock, keeping her safe is another story. By nature, no other creature is permitted to enter. But Brock must bring Celeste back to Tamlon as her role is vital to the survival of the land. And the journey that ensues is indeed a magical one!
I loved the first book in the series, The Garnet Dagger! Cursed in Shadow is equally spellbinding! I was awestruck by the world building, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing where the characters would take us. A fantastic tale, with a charming love story entwined, this is a must read for anyone who enjoys escaping into a fantasy world where anything can happen!
Note: This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
I LOVED the way the settings were described. I could see the differences between the human world and the Elvin. I could correlate how the magic was described and how it manifested easily. I've read some books that left a lot to be desired in that area but this is definitely not one of them.
It is easy to like both Celeste and even Brock. I thought I would find it hard to designate him as the "hero" because of what he is but I was absolutely wrong. I also love them as a couple; they are a cohesive unit despite everything going on around them and those who would be against them.
