Brutal Curse by Casey L. Bond

Title: Brutal Curse
Author: Casey L. Bond
Genre: YA Epic Fantasy, Fairy Tale Retelling
Editor: Stacy Sanford/ The Girl with the Red Pen
Cover Designer: Melissa Stevens/ The Illustrated Author Design Services
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Prince Carden of Tierney lost his home, family, and claim to the throne in one fell swoop when he rebelled against his father for a cause he knew was right. Instead of wallowing in despair, he embarks on a new journey, starting a new life on the Southern Isle. When he finds himself caught in a web woven by the famously ruthless fae queen, Coeur, he insults her and she vows to teach him the most difficult and heart-breaking lesson he will ever learn: that humans are incapable of love, and that hearts are beastly things.
Arabella wasn’t really living, she was existing and surviving as best she could.  A chance encounter with Carden changes everything for her, but the deadly game he’s dragged her into might cost her life.
Still, she agrees to play. The rules the fae queen gives them are vague, and it’s obvious there are things Queen Coeur isn’t telling them. She’s sure of it. But what she does know is that together, she and Carden must pass a series of tests and trials. If they fail, game over. But if they succeed, she just might be able to restore her family and carve out the life she’s always envisioned.

REVIEW


As a faithful reader of all things Casey L. Bond, I can attest that each and every book I read draws me in even more than the last!
Each word and phrase is a new glimpse into her talent, with Brutal Curse seriously adding some emotion to the line up. All of Ms. Bond’s fairy tales are amazing, but she’s really outdone herself with Brutal Curse.
Right away we are hit with an emotional prelude of just what happened to the Queen, and it does not stop for one page! As the book progresses, we are allowed glimpses into multiple character viewpoints and it adds so much to the building of the world.
I absolutely suggest you read all of The authors work, you will have no regrets!

Excerpt: 
My head is still pounding when my eyes flutter open the next day. My brain is throbbing inside my skull and I punch the pillow underneath me, scaring Jinx out of his slumber. He meows in protest before hopping off the bed. Looking around, I’m in my bed. How did I get here? I groan in pain as I prop my pillows up and lean my head back against them. It’s then that I feel the eyes on me. Tilting my head straight again, I glance out my window. My eyes lock with those big brown eyes of Jared’s across the way. He looks down to his phone and back up again. My phone chimes with an incoming text. 
“UGHHH!” I moan, blindly reaching for it. It slips a few times before I grasp it between my fingers and look down to read.
How are you feeling?
Closing one eye, I text back, Like someone ran over me with a truck, then backed up and ran me over again. 
Lowering my phone, I watch as he smiles from my text and disappears from view. I’m trying to piece last night back together; it’s like a fragmented mirror that has shattered all over the corners of my mind. I remember laughing with Ro about her sexual conquests and then I remember red and blue lights and… Jared. Starting to feel hot, I throw the covers off of me and lay like a starfish, trying to get my mind to focus. Glancing down, I notice I’m wearing my pajamas. Before I can process any further, the door to my room creaks open. Jared walks in with a cup of water and a closed fist. 
“How did you get in?!” I yelp, trying to sit up in bed, and pulling the covers back over my braless tank top. 
“I left the back door open when I left last night,” he informs me as he opens his fist to show me he brought a hand full of Advil. 
“You brought me home last night?” I rub my head before reaching for the pills and water. 
“Yup, after you called me to pick you up from the police station.” 
“I WAS WHERE?!” I scream as water comes spraying out of my mouth. 
“Police station. Apparently, you popped a guy in the face.” He smirks. 
I squint my eyes, vaguely remembering the heavyset guy that tried grabbing my ass in front of the bar.
“Whoa!” I have to lean my head back against my pillows when the information begins to become too much for me. “If you took me home, how did I get into pajamas?!” 
The smile that crosses Jared’s face is a mixture of a blush and a sly smirk that makes my insides twist with anticipation and excitement. “Jared…” 
“That… you did on your own. I had nothing to do with that!” He holds his hands up in surrender. 
“What? I just stripped in front of you!” 
“Well, once you got your shirt off, there was really no stopping you…” he teases and my eyes widen in embarrassment.
“Oh my God!” I slump down, pulling the covers back up to my face. “Did we… ya know…” I mutter, completely mortified now. 
“Uh, that would be a no.”
“Oh, thank God!” I sigh.
“Thanks a lot!” He comes to his feet now, turning to look out the window. 
“Not like that, it’s just … I don’t like to do things I’m not conscious for.” 
“Yea, completely plastered girls that get arrested and throw up in bushes are really sexy!” His voice drips with sarcasm. 
“I threw up?!” This just gets better and better. 
“Twice.” 
“Twice?” I’m mortified, staring at his amused face. 
“Well, after the first time I thought maybe you needed something to eat.” 
“Oh no…” 
“Yeah… I’ve never seen someone eat a Big Mac that fast before…” He stares at the wall as if remembering my weak moment. 
“Oh my God!” I groan, throwing the covers over my entire body. I curl up in a fetal position, planning to never come out again. The room grows silent. It’s starting to get hard to breathe under the sheets when I feel the mattress by my feet cave slightly. 
“Come on, it’s not that bad. We all have our moments.” He pats my feet through the sheets.  
“Just when I think I’ve reached rock bottom, things just seem to drops out from under me and I’m at an all new low!” I roll over, trying to pull the covers with me, but Jared’s weight prevents it. My head comes peeking out as I roll over, facing away from him. 
“April, I think I just determined your major.” 
“What?” I curiously twist to look at him again.
“Drama. You’re such an actress. Now, put your big girl panties on and get up!” 
I stare at him for a second; did he just say what I think he said? He waits about two seconds before getting up and opening a drawer to my dresser. “Are they in here? Nope!” He closes it and opens another.
“STOP!” I scream, stumbling out of bed, horrified. 
“How ‘bout this one?” 
“Okay! Okay! I’m up!” I slam the drawer closed just in time to save myself further embarrassment when Jared eyes my plain old undergarments. I sigh when the pounding in my head launches my stomach into action and I collapse onto the corner of the bed. 
“You okay?”
“I refuse to puke again!” I respond, taking another deep breath. “Jared…” 
“Yea…” 
“I could use some donuts.” 
“Okay.” He pauses for a few seconds, looking down at his feet before adding, “I’ll be outside then.” 
And he leaves me in my room, alone.

  Words like unnatural and impure started the whispers. From the very beginning, Ivy Blackwood was different. She was only a child when she was accused of setting the fire, one she passively watched engulf the small house she had called home. Her fingertips burned and her hair singed. Some who watched her crossed themselves, convinced she was soulless for she showed no emotion at all. Calm and dispassionate, even when the screaming started that quickly turned to bellows of agony before dying into nothing but the roaring of the fire. She was locked away where she couldn’t bring harm to herself or others. To all involved, they had protected the world from a monster, but sometimes things are not what they seem.
