Review: A Curse Unbroken - Cecy Robson
The preternatural world is changing. After a massive magical throwdown tore apart the established order, the dark elements are rebuilding their ranks unopposed. Celia Wird’s world is changing, too. She’s the mate of the pureblood were Aric, and his Warriors are honor-bound to protect her family as she and her sisters recover from unimaginable horrors.
Celia hesitates to reveal the true extent of the Wird sisters’ trauma, but they aren’t the only ones keeping secrets: Aric and the werewolf Elders are tracking a stone that grants limitless power. So is a tough coven of witches. Then Misha, a master vampire with his own plans for the stone, sends Celia after it. Can she and the vamps beat both the weres and the witches to the treasure before it falls into the wrong hands?
Fearing for Celia’s safety, Aric begs her to stay out of the hunt. What they don’t realize is that they’re the ones being hunted. But Celia’s ready to prove that she’s not easy prey.

I'm such a fan girl when it comes to this series, from the minute I pick up any of these books I'm completely sucked into the world Cecy Robson has created and I get really irritated when real life gets in the way and makes me stop reading for any reason. This series has been full of humour from the very beginning but after the last book, which was somewhat darker, I really, really appreciated the hilarious opening couple of chapters to A Curse Unbroken. I'm not going to give you any hints about what happens but I will say that it's the kind of disaster that only Celia could have happen to her and I was practically crying with laughter. Although the story starts on a humorous note there are also some really sweet and heartfelt moments as well as all the action and tension that you'd expect from one of these books.
Celia and Aric have been through hell and back but their happily ever after was never going to come easily and they're not about to be able to walk into the sunset without at least one last major battle. I'm not going to say too much about the plot but I will tell you that A Curse Unbroken ties up all the lose ends to Celia and Aric's story, it isn't the last book in the series but it's the last that will be from Celia's point of view (for now anyway!) and her sister Taran will take over the lead role in the next book. I'm absolutely thrilled that we're going to get to know Taran, and eventually the other sisters, better - they're all still reeling from the emotional roller coaster that they've been on and now they've got to start trying to put their lives back together again.
A Curse Unbroken is a fantastic instalment to the series, it will keep you hooked from beginning to end and will leave you with a massive smile on your face. We get so many hints at what could be to come for the whole Weird family and I'm so glad that this series is still going strong. I definitely can't wait to get my hands on the next instalment!
