Celia Wird and her three sisters have moved to Lake Tahoe to finally settle down away from all the people that had bullied them for years, because they were different. And they are all pretty different supernatural beings. A witch’s spell had backfired, leaving all the sisters with very different powers. Celia has an inner tigress that she can let out. But she is not a weretigress. Taren, controls fire and lightening with her hands. Shayna can transform pieces of wood to weapons (among other things)and Emme is telekinetic.
Taren has a temper and gets into it with a witch one night at a nightclub. Celia gets pulled into the fray and when all is said and done, they have made a powerful enemy in the head witch of the coven in Tahoe. A challenge is made and Celia has to fight for her family and their new life in Tahoe. If she loses, they have to give up everything and leave. It’s not long before she realizes that the witch doesn’t fight fair.
My favorite thing about this story was the characters. The author has fully realized each sister and I felt like I knew each of them by the end. The relationship between the sisters, and Celia’s love for her sisters, in particular,was the backbone of the story. The other thing I liked was the humor. Horrific things are happening and then the author deftly manages to lighten the mood. Don’t get me wrong. this is not a comedy. But what it is, is a supernatural story with lots of action and well written characters. It’s also a story of four unusual sisters and their love for each other. Good start to a series and I have already started the next book.(RabidReads,Ca)
I need me some snark right now, and wanted to see if it was worth buying the series.
I would say yes. Despite some easily-edited minor text mistakes, and a bit of believability problem in terms of the supernatural world keeping themselves secret from humans (and blowing up night clubs) as well as a too-bee-yotchy to be true villainess, the snark kept me reading on.
Not just snark, but current media-referenced snark as well as a main character who doesn't take herself too seriously or angst-ily. (which is good, because the Weird Sisters do have things in their past they could angst about, but the pacing, tone, and character development wouldn't support that kind of emotional load).
Celia is the oldest sister in a group of 4 who all have special powers (undefined and a bit too comprehensive for my own taste-- Celia can shift, and sense magic, and teleport, and change into a Tiger--) due to a curse aimed at their now-dead mother. They have just settled in Lake Tahoe finally to make it their home, but the supernatural community already there is going to give them a bit of a challenge.
This novella definitely sets up the series while giving a nicely rounded tale about how far Celia will go to protect her family.
I'll definitely be looking up Sealed with a Curse, the first of the series.
This Book's Snack Rating: Sour Cream and Chives Lay's for the cheesy snark on a still-crunchable-but-not-heavy character development and paranormal plot
This was a great book and I’ve got to tell you the last challenge almost left me in tears because my heart was breaking for Celia. This was a novella and the first of the series but it wasn’t the first one that I had read so I knew going in what the girls powers were. Each with the own unique power and personality they complement each other but to me, the most important one is Emme because without her healing abilities, they would more than likely be dead.
