Most days, Elea couldn’t care less about having Necromancer magick. Who needs to conjure skeletons and sprits when you’re a farm girl? Elea only uses her powers to speed up chores and scare off suitors.
Everything changes when the evil Necromancer Tsar curses Elea. Now, Elea has five years left before she burns as a ghost, tortured for all eternity. They say there’s nothing she can do, but Elea disagrees. She decides to embrace her Necromancer powers, train as a magickal assassin, and kill the Tsar… All before his curse kills her. Impossible as it may sound, Elea thinks she has it in the bag, but then everything goes horribly wrong.
That’s when a handsome mage named Rowan steps up to help. Elea wants an ally, but she doesn’t need all the mixed-up feelings that come along with Rowan’s crooked smile.
An assassination mission is no time to fall in love, but Elea’s heart may have other ideas…

This story was refreshing, like a breath of fresh air from what I have been reading. Elea is such a powerful character, both in magic and personality. I could definitely get behind her and her ideals. The author’s created world was also fascinating. I felt she not only created a marvelous world but also did a good job at explaining it. Sometimes in fantasy novels, I get lost concerning the author’s created mythology, but I wasn’t with this novel…I loved it and can’t wait to read more.
An exceptionally engaging tale, full of twists and magic!
Love the strong and willful character, Elea, and how she fights against all the odds of burning for eternity bound by a curse cast by a powerful Tsar on her beloved friend Tristan. She has only five years to change her fate and become a powerful Necromancer. Her path will be filled with challenges, friendship, deception and maybe love.

Uh, no…this is Christina Muthafuckin Bauer we’re talking about here. The woman does not disappoint. Her wonderfully endearing, kick ass characters (we don’t do weak bitches) & ultra unique plot make Cursed a magically delicious tale.
