Review: Of Flame and Fate by Cecy Robson

Review: Of Flame and Fate by Cecy Robson Of Flame and Fate Author: Cecy Robson Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Of Flame and Fate is the second spin-off novel from the Weird Girls series focusing on Taran (nicknamed the Flame series).  Although the overall plot of this book was intriguing, there was just a little too much angst for our enjoyment. Some angst is normal in this series.  The girls seem to continually need to prove themselves, not just to the supernatural community, but also to themselves.  The continuing power struggles between Taran and Gem just added to the melodrama.  Although they did make up in the last novel, they are still...

Review + Blog Tour: Of Flame and Light by Cecy Robson

Review + Blog Tour: Of Flame and Light by Cecy Robson Of Flame and Light Author: Cecy Robson Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una have been anticipating this novel since we met Taran in the first Weird Girls novel, A Curse Awakened. We loved this mouthy, confident woman. We found it fascinating to see the world of the Wird sisters through Taran’s eyes. Taran’s persona is just a façade. Taran’s history (which we hope to learn more about in future books) has taught her to show a tough-as-nails façade to hide her brittle self-esteem. She is terrified of being in love. This fact is illustrated through her frustrating relationship with Gem. One would...

Review: Of Flame and Promise by Cecy Robson

Review: Of Flame and Promise by Cecy Robson Of Flame and Promise Author: Cecy Robson Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: At first Gikany and Una thought we were getting Taran’s novel when we received Of Flame and Promise.  However, this is a prequel novella that gives Taran’s back-story and sets up what will be her journey in the coming novel. This novella was a breath of fresh air.  We liked seeing behind Taran’s brash bravado into a sweet and vulnerable soul.  We also loved seeing her sisters through her eyes, especially her view of Celia.  Throughout the previous novels, Celia was unsure of herself and was plagued with worry about her relationship...

Review: A Curse Unbroken by Cecy Robson

Review: A Curse Unbroken by Cecy Robson A Curse Unbroken Author: Cecy Robson Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: For fans of the Weird Girls series, fear not. A Curse Unbroken is not the final novel in the series. It is only the last book from Celia’s point of view, “for now”. This novel nicely wraps up Celia’s relationship with Aric and the ramifications from the last battle in the previous book with a nice pretty bow. Since the stories in the Weird Girls series build upon themselves, one should read them from the beginning. If you enjoy dark action and drama lightened by irreverent humor and witty banter between four strangely...

Review: A Cursed Bloodline by Cecy Robson

Review: A Cursed Bloodline by Cecy Robson A Cursed Bloodline Author: Cecy Robson Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: NOTE: This review contains spoilers from previous books in the series. The Weird Girls is a series in which each book builds upon the previous books, and therefore, you should start with first book, Sealed with a Curse or try the series out by reading either of the two prequel novellas, The Weird Girls or A Curse Awakened. After the conclusion of Cursed by Destiny, Gikany and Una were on pins and needles awaiting A Cursed Bloodline to find out how Celia would overcome the cliffhanger threat left by Anara. Though the first...

Review: A Curse Awakened by Cecy Robson

Review: A Curse Awakened by Cecy Robson A Curse Awakened: A Weird Girls Novella Author: Cecy Robson Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: If you haven’t tried the Weird Girls series, you are in for a treat.  In A Curse Awakened, we are given a prequel to the Weird Girls series.  In this novella, we see the sisters in their home in New Jersey, prior to their move to Reno and are given a great insight into why they felt they were cursed.  Gikany and Una enjoyed this novella with all the trademarks that we have come to love as part of the Weird Girls series. The sisters are not as we...

Sunday Snippet: Cursed by Destiny by Cecy Robson

Sunday Snippet: Cursed by Destiny by Cecy Robson  About the Book Cursed by Destiny Author:  Cecy Robson Publisher:   Signet Released:  January 7, 2014 REVIEW HERE  Snippet My sneakers crunched against the thickening snow in the garden, but the sudden alertness of my tigress slowed my steps.  She veered right and left, searching for a way out of me and thrilled by the sudden aroma breaking its way through the flurries.  I lifted my head to the sweeping sugar pine to my right, my lips parting at the sight of the dark figure crouching on the branches.  He leapt and landed with the controlled grace of a predator, watching me as he rose. Aric. “You caught me,” he said...

Sunday Snippet: A Cursed Moon by Cecy Robson

Sunday Snippet: A Cursed Moon by Cecy Robson  About the Book A Cursed Moon  Author:  Cecy Robson Publisher:   Signet Released:  December 3, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet I jumped out and ambled toward the blue Colonial.  Mrs. Mancuso, the girls’ elderly neighbor, was sweeping her front steps by the light of her lawn jockey’s lantern, a freak-ass little statue with bright red pants and a lazy eye.  Despite the late hour she brushed her little broom back and forth with quick precise motions, even through any sap could have eaten off of the wooden steps as they were.  She was probably bored, and lonely.  The Wird sisters seemed to be her only form of entertainment. She buttoned the top...

Review: Cursed by Destiny by Cecy Robson

Review: Cursed by Destiny by Cecy Robson Cursed By Destiny Author: Cecy Robson  Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: ****Due to the nature of this series, this review contains some spoilers.  We enjoy the Weird Girls series and although there are not blatant spoilers – there are some general giveaways.  You have been warned!**** Cursed by Destiny is a book we have been dying to get our hands on.  After the cliffhanger of Celia walking away with Misha because Aric is to marry another pureblood – we were heartbroken with her. A Cursed Embrace left us bewildered: the Tribe devastated the weres and was growing in power, Aric and Celia’s relationship destroyed,...

Review: A Cursed Moon by Cecy Robson

Review: A Cursed Moon by Cecy Robson A Cursed Moon Author: Cecy Robson  Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: A Cursed Moon is a novella that takes place between A Cursed Embrace and Cursed by Destiny.  This is a special novella as our narrator is Bren and not Celia (who is our point of view for both the series and the prequel novella, The Weird Girls).  We are given the opportunity of seeing Celia through someone else’s eyes.  It allows us to see that for all her strength and protectiveness, she is truly fragile when it comes to her self-esteem and happiness.  Bren sees a beautiful woman who doesn’t seem to know...
