Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: YA/Fantasy/Paranormal Romance
Release Date: September 18, 2012
So, I have come to the conclusion that anything Jennifer L. Armentrout writes will be like manna for the mind... seriously, she is a fantastic writer. Armentrout keeps every story going with a steady pace, while also maintaining fluidity.
I have to say, I'm not a big fan of the cover of Cursed, but the story makes up for it.
This book is magnificient! The characters are diverse (some of them I wanted to throw a vase at, though....) and the pace was very steady. Although, I did get a little annoyed at Ember when she became a tad bit obsessed with Hayden, but I'll forgive her (lol). I loved Hayden, but he seriously pissed me off at times (cuddling scene... *growl*).
I would classify this book as a mystery, because there is the whole 'unidentified killer' factor, but there is also quite a bit of paranormal stuff going on here.
This is a very short read (287 pages), but you will not be sorry! There is no sequel to this book, so I would recommend this to anyone who wants a quick and short, yet cute and mysterious read.
Overall, I am giving Cursed a 4/5. The story was wonderful, but I feel like Armentrout should have drug the plot out more to make it a bit longer.
