Review: A Curse Awakened - Cecy Robson
Celia Wird shouldn’t possess the ability to transform into a tigress. Her three sisters should never be able to burst into flames, heal wounds, or transform common objects into deadly weapons. And yet they do.
Before they were born, the Wird Sisters were cursed by a spell that was intended to destroy them, not endow them with extraordinary powers. The sisters’ magic is untamed and explosive at best, and time is running out for them to take command.
Vampires have targeted Celia’s sweet, tragically human ex-boyfriend Danny. The sisters rush to his aid, but in order to take down the vamps, first they must face their dark past and break a spell that’s screwing up their powers. Except this curse wasn’t meant to be broken . . . and the witch who cast it isn’t done toying with them yet.

I love Cecy Robson's Weird Girls series so couldn't wait to start reading the new prequel novella, A Curse Awakened. This story is set before any of the previous novels and gives fans a bit more background information on the curse that was cast on the sisters before they were even born. Together Celia, Taran, Shayna and Emme must face their past and uncover what really happened to them but they may not have enough power to put a stop to it.
If it wasn't exciting enough to delve deeper into the Wird family history we also get to see more of their friendship with human Danny and discover exactly how he was drawn into the supernatural world that the girls were born into. When Danny's father is kidnapped by vampires he immediately turns to Celia and the others for help and of course none of them are able to walk away from a friend in need.
A Curse Awakened is perfect for fans of the series who enjoy digging deeper into their favourite character's backgrounds but it's also a great place to start if you're new to the series and it will give you a good idea of Cecy Robson's writing style and the humour she weaves into all of her stories. I've been hooked on this series since I first discovered it and I don't see that changing any time soon!
