After escaping from the elves and the General, Claire is on the run again with the last person she'd thought she'd end up with— Farron. Shadowy forces are nipping at their heels, and soon they are attacked. But they have bigger worries. An old friend of Farron's shows up: a beautiful woman with a mark shockingly similar to her own.
As it turns out, she is not alone.
And the new woman isn't exactly on their side. Claire is kidnapped and lands in the middle of Farron's biggest secret of all. Once again she is a prisoner and the people that surround her want to use her and her powers, people that she doesn't have the option of refusing. The wolves are circling, but to pick a side means giving up everything she holds dear.
Book two of the Cursed Magic Series.
So I finished the first book in one day, and began reading the second book immediately thereafter. I love the development of characters and the love story between Claire and Fare. The story, mystery and deception are somewhat more revealed in this book and we get more details about who is behind the attacks. I really enjoyed how Casey plays around with the idea of love while simultaneously telling a coming of age story in the heroine. I can't wait for the next book, and do hope in my heart of hearts that love will conquer obstacles between Fare and Claire. This is a great read, full of emotion, magic and adventure.
I admit I’m not the most kind reader, I find flaws in books and refuse to pay for many, choosing to stick to “free” books on my device. I very rarely will actually pay for a book I can not physically hold, turn pages to or put in my physical collection BUT this book set, I will do that for.
I read the first book and was drawn in to this captivating story and didn’t want to give up after the first book. The second book has left me no further satisfaction with wanting to be done with the set. I very much look forward to the next book and the one after.
I sit here at almost 4am to tell you: This is addictive, captivating and well worth the read.
It’s not your normal “smut” romance but focuses more on story than sexual escapades of a mindless woman always looking for a man to save her via her sexual nature.
Love the twist it gave at the end, excited for what’s to come.
