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

Review
 "This is a funny book. Seriously, I was laughing and enjoyed reading every page. . . . 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." --USA Today
 
"Celia and her sisters are an eclectic bunch, determined to keep each other safe at all costs. As for Celia, she may be the leader of her family, but when it comes to romance, she has a refreshing innocence that is sure to delight readers. Robson clearly shows that family, the ones you're born with and the ones you create, are instrumental for survival--especially in this adventurous and enchanting ride!" --Romantic Times, 4 ½ stars

"Robson combines four sisters with supernatural powers, a murderous yet sympathetic vampire, and a frightening virus in an engaging paranormal romance with bite. . . . Robson skillfully builds a believable world near Lake Tahoe for this solid page-turning debut." --Publishers Weekly
 
"There's a LOT that happens but I never had a problem picking the book back up and WHOOSH being absorbed into the story. And there is some seriously silly, irreverent funny, y'all. . . . I enjoyed the hell out of reading [Sealed with a Curse]. My inner 12 year old guffawed constantly.  I was really happy to read it and had a grand time every time I picked it up." --Smart Bitches Trashy Books
 
"Wowsa! I liked this book so much we have picked Sealed with a Curse by Cecy Robson as a MUST READ of this winter! . . . Cecy Robson has written about a unique world full of werewolves, wereracoons, a werebobcat, vampires and of course the 4 kick-ass sisters that you will love as your own family!" --Paranormal Cravings
 
"Sealed with a Curse has just about everything I want in a really good urban fantasy. Strong lead characters? Check. A sexy romance brewing on the side? Check. Vamps, weres, witches, and more? Check!! . . . This is an exciting and refreshing debut and I can't wait to see what's next for this series!" --My Bookish Ways
 
"Sealed with a Curse was impressive.  The pace was fantastic, the story exciting and the chemistry between all of the characters was just great.  I loved everyone in this book - even the creepy people.  Everyone was compelling and added a lot to the story and to the world Cecy created.  I strongly recommend this book." --Yummy Men & Kick Ass Chicks, 5 stars
 
"It is rare that an Urban Fantasy book can grab me from the first few pages. . . . But this book, this one definitely got me hooked after the first few pages. There was action, humor, danger, sisterly bonding, witty one liners, something fun and completely unique and a whole new world just waiting to be discovered, and I knew I wanted to discover it." --My Guilty Obsession, 5 stars

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.

"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.

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.

As a woman who has yet to read the Twilight series, and doesn't usually indulge in tales of vampires and werewolves, let me just tell you, I am hooked! Author Cecy Robson packs her debut novel with plenty of action, romance, suspense, mystery, and then tops it all off with a healthy dose of humor, that makes this read downright entertaining (not to mention addicting). In fact, I'm eagerly anticipating the next release in this series, and can't wait to continue rooting on Celia (and Aric too), and find out what lies ahead for both of them (and the rest of the Wird sisters) in the books to follow.
