Cursed By Lizzy Ford Review

Title: Cursed: Voodoo Nights

Author: Lizzy Ford

Star Rating: 5/5

This was the first novel I have read that ventures into the realms of Voodoo and I have to say I loved it. Ms Ford carefully blends the mundane world of high school with the culture and religion of Voodoo. I found myself thoroughly engaged in the story and invested in the characters. The family curses that link the central characters is well thought out and intriguingly revealed. The narrative generates a great balance of tension and expectation that has the reader glued to the pages until the very last line.

The story is left open for a sequel and I, for one, would be happy to purchase the next book to find out how Adrienne and Jayden untangle their complicated web of curses and lies. How will the Red man affect the outcome and will Adrienne chose Jayden or Rene?

An enjoyable and different read!

Estimated Release Date:

Jess's Review:Cursed

 

Star Rating: 4/5 stars

So what's it about?

Adrienne moves to New Orleans to live with her father five years after her sister's death, having received a scholarship for a prestigious school. 

Marked with a family curse, Adrienne wonders if moving to New Orleans was such a good idea with news of a serial killer in the area.

Jayden doesn't believe in voodoo or in the curse that is supposedly linked with a dark family secret and key.

Linked by their pasts, Adrienne and Jayden must break a curse that might result in one or both of their deaths.

Love it or hate it?

Cursed is a very intriguing book. I really enjoyed the voodoo theme and found the writing style easy to follow. 

The characters were likeable though I was slightly annoyed at the discovery that there might be a love triangle. 

The book ended, I felt, quite suddenly and I definitely want to read the sequel.
 

Overall Cursed was a pleasantly surprising and enjoyable read.

Note: I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Indie Inked and Lizzy Ford.

I loved this book too! I thought it had a great sense of balance between the natural high school elements and the voodoo, and I totally agree, I would so go out and buy this book and the next. I'm so excited for the second installment!
