Weird Girls by Cecy Robson

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they’re products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, weird… 

 

I  cannot remember how I found this series. I may have gotten the first one, Sealed With a Curse, from Instafreebie. It doesn’t matter how I got it, I’m just glad I did. Celia Wird and her sisters are products of a botched curse that killed their parents. Each of the sisters gained a unique supernatural ability. The characters in this series are the best part. Yes, the sisters can fight. Yes, they have these awesome abilities. Yes, they are gorgeous and they get the hottest guys. That’s all typical urban fantasy stuff. But these girls are funny, quirky, and sometimes awkward as they learn how to deal with their fate. That’s what I liked. They are human and real (as far as sisters who can shift, change wood into knives, heal, and shoot fire are real).

I stopped reading the series between A Curse Unbroken and Of Flame and Promise. The other finished one line of the plot and started on another. I did not stop reading because the books were bad. It was about that time I started working on my own writing and reviewing books so I found other books to read. A few weeks ago, I received a copy of her newest Of Flame & Fate due out September 26. This was a great opportunity to catch up on the books I’ve missed, Of Flame & Promise and Of Flame & Light. I’m glad I found this series again and caught up on the ones I haven’t read. This series is still just as good as it was.

 

 

 

Below is my review for the latest book:

I read Cecy Robson’s first book in this series a couple of years ago. I read the next two as fast as I could. Then every time the next book released, I ordered it and read it within a day. There was a lag between a couple, and I found a few other series, and I lost track of this series. When I came across the chance to review this book, I realized there were two books I had not read. So I quickly read those two, so I could catch up in this series. I think this book CAN be read as a stand alone, but it is a lot better if you read the whole series or at least the two books right before this.
The women in this series are as kick-ass as any I’ve read. The spotlight is on Taran in this book. She struggles with accepting that unconditional love is not only possible, but she is worthy of it.  The passion she feels for Gemini is strong, and it will help her through anything if she remembers to trust and rely on it. Robson has created such life-like characters I feel a strong connection and would totally take them all out for a beer if I could.
The fast-paced action pushed me to read “just one more chapter” until I finished it. The world building is so solid; it was easy to SEE this book as if I was watching a movie.

  1. Oh my. This sounds right up my ally. I loved your descriptions and the fact that they all seemed to suck you in that quickly. Glad I found our review! Need to add these to my TBR list. <3
