Review: Sealed with a Curse (Weird Girls #1) by Cecy Robson

This is one of the books that I've had on my TBR List for too damn long. I started reading this while I was studying for my finals, otherwise I might've pulled an all nighter. This my opinion ;-)

Omg. I knew I would love this series from the get go, and I was right.
Cecy has created an amazing world where there are supernaturals hidden from the public; werewolves, vampires and witches (just to name a few). Let’s just say they don’t get along very well, to put it nicely.
The wird girls lands in the middle of all this when one of them unwittingly invites a vampire back home and kills him when he goes nuts. Cecy starts the story when the trial is beginning, and holy hell for a start! We’re thrown into the whole mess and it turns out it wasn’t Taran’s fault that the vampire went a little bat-crazy. He was a chronic bloodlust victim. But he was only the first of many and soon the ball is rolling too fast to catch, and the Wird girls are playing catch-up in between wolves and vampires to find the source of the disease.
Getting out of court without getting eaten was the easy part, now Celia and her sisters have to navigate the supernatural world after trying to stay out of it. Adding jealousy, murder, plotting behind the scenes and smoldering feelings from two different men, Celia suddenly has her plate full.
I loved this book, hands down.
There’s so much awesomeness in Sealed with a Curse, I’m in awe. I absolutely ADORE Celia and her sisters; Taran, Emme and Shayna. Cecy has managed to create 4 very different and intense sisters with very different personalities. And there’s growth from them through the book. Each on their own, they’re exceptional, but together… they’re a force to be reckoned with. In the beginning they’re described as “Tigress, fire-breather, knife thrower and Gypsy” (quote from Sealed with a Curse). Not entirely wrong, but definitely not correct either. *winks* There’s so much more to them than meets the eye and everybody is about to find that out the hard way.
Something else that is so amazing with this book is this; the love story intertwined. Each one of the sisters find their One, but not without hesitation, awkwardness and misunderstandings between them, which I LOVE! There was a little bit of “insta-love”, but not without trouble, which makes it better for me. I want to see my characters struggle with it, to see them slowly understand what the other person means to them is a wonderful discovery. And trust me, there were misunderstandings – BIG TIME!
The entire story with the chronic infected bloodlust vampires and the havoc they created in Sacramento was brilliant. But even better was the very twist Cecy delivered in the end. Wow. I didn’t see it coming, but made perfectly sense when she revealed it. It also gave me goosebumps. Very well done!

All in all; if you like books with twists, great fight scenes, feisty females and males, werewolves and vampires and a touch of magic, Sealed with a Curse is definitely for you!!

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other twenty-something girls—with one tiny exception: They're the products of a curse that backfired and gave each of them unique powers that make them, well, a little weird…

The Wird sisters are content to avoid the local vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region—until one of them blows up a vampire in self-defense. Everyone knows vampires aren't aggressive, and killing one is punishable by death. But soon more bloodlust-fueled attacks occur, and the community wonders if the vampires of Tahoe are plague-ridden.

Celia reluctantly agrees to help Misha, the handsome leader of an infected vampire family. But Aric, the head of the werewolf pack determined to destroy Misha's family to keep the area safe, warns Celia to stay out of the fight. Caught between two hot alphas, Celia must find a way to please everyone, save everyone, and—oh, yeah—not lose her heart to the wrong guy or die a miserable death. Because now that the evil behind the plague knows who Celia is, he's coming for her and her sisters.

This Wird girl has never had it so tough.
