Genres: Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy
Since being cursed with unique abilities, Celia Wird and her three sisters have fought the most bloodthirsty preternaturals in the Lake Tahoe region. But Celia’s greatest threat is someone she would have never suspected: Anara, a werewolf Elder who has allowed his hatred for Celia to spiral out of control. In a play for dominance, Anara tortures Celia and gives her an ultimatum: sever her mate bond with pureblood were Aric—or Anara will kill everyone she loves.
From the instant they met, Celia and Aric have shared an attraction that cannot be tamed. So keeping Aric away is impossible, and Aric would sooner die than allow anyone to hurt the woman he loves. Misha, master vampire and Celia’s sworn protector, also finds his way into the chaos, seeking blood from those who have harmed her.
Now Celia and her sisters are caught in the middle of a war driven by lust, fueled by hatred, and destined to end in tragedy. For Anara is a force to be reckoned with, and he will not succumb without robbing Celia of those who hold her heart.
We need to talk. I’d like to discuss genres and what you’re reading. Do you read urban fantasy? Do you read paranormal romance? Do you read plain ‘ole romance?? Do you like strong heroines? Do you like that heroine to have a strong support system in the form of kick-ass sisters?
If ANY of these have piqued your interest, you really need to start the Weird Girls series by Cecy Robson. I’m not exaggerating when I say that this series rivals Kim Harrison’s The Hollows in intensity, plot density (it’s a thing, I think?), action / battles, and love, love, LOVE!
Oh… I remember when Ms. Robson was just a debut author and we all clamored for her first book, Sealed With A Curse. Ms. Robson was one of those authors that if you had a question about the story, she answered it. Strange thing is… she STILL is!! And she welcomes those questions! And if you look at the Goodreads ratings of this series, the reviews just got better and better.
No spoilers for the entire series
My expectations for this fourth book in the series was for Celia to find some happiness, any happiness, in her crazy magical life. It started out that way but quickly changed when a nasty wolf elder took matters in his own hands and went crazy all over Celia. This is nothing new to Celia because the wolves have always hated Celia. But if you’ve kept up with the series, you might understand when I say that this book took it further. The entire storyline was almost too much for me. I cried so much during and after reading this book. It sort of reminded me of the time I read a certain book in the Hollows series. I could be out at the grocery store and just think about the book and tears would form in my eyes. Same thing after reading A Cursed Bloodline.
I had the book hangover… again.
But even if you can’t handle an intense storyline, fans of this series can NOT miss this book. So many over-arcing plot points come to their resolution. There’s also just great story featuring relationships and how they’ve grown and become something beautiful and exactly what the characters need. Have I been vague enough for you? Have I annoyed the pants off ya? If it worked to get you into a pair of pjs, cuddled into the couch, and reading this book or series then my life is fulfilled.
Well, not quite fulfilled but you catch my drift.
Am I her publicist? Hell no! I have no clue how to do that nor do I have time for that! But the Weird Girls series is hands down one of my favorite series over all genres. And Ms. Robson is a favorite author of mine for her professionalism, her spunk, and her ability to stay human and humble as she works her day job.
