Just when Celia thinks the supernatural world can’t turn deadlier, a new rival emerges, proving just how dangerous a power-hungry were can be.

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.

My Opinion

Aric and Celia have made their pairing public. Aric has even claimed Celia as his mate. Yet not everyone is happy about this especially not Anara- one of the Elder werewolves. He threatens Celia to do the unthinkable- sever her mates link. Even though this could kill both her and Aric. If she doesn’t everyone she loves dies. At first Celia fights Anara but his power over Aric’s clan and even Aric himself is too strong, too much for Celia to bear. She takes refugee with Misha, a vampire sworn to protect her.

A Cursed Bloodline brings all the feels. You will laugh, get mad and of course cry. Holy cryfeast! Do not read this tale without a box of tissues with you. The emotional beat down that you will ender will of course require them.

The best thing about this series is the subplots. Yes, we find out how Celia and Aric will handle what comes their way but man does the secondary characters shine. Liam and Emma, Taran and Gemini even Misha takes center stage as the pages turn. Boy do the pages turn. You will not be able to put this one down.

Celia and Aric have already faced a lot- vampires, witches, demons oh my. The betrayal of one of Aric’s own is well too much to bare. Celia grows throughout the series. This is the book that causes her to grow the most. She has none to turn to or depend on because the attacks are coming from everywhere. No one will believe her as no one knows what is going on. How can they, when she doesn’t believe it herself?

Mrs. Robson is a master at making you feel happiness and then crushing to the ground. She cons you into routing for the couple and then breaks your heart along with the characters. A Cursed Bloodline is a must read!

My Rating 5 stars out of 5

  1. One of those kinds of authors, huh. Like the happiness part. Hopefully it ends that way.

  2. This story sounds excellent! I love it when a story brings the feels, and makes me need a box of tissues! I like that this story had a variety of paranormal creatures, and that the secondary characters shone as much as the primary ones! Great Review Angela :)
