A Curse So Dark and Lonely ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers, #1)

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A complete original. So awesome.

There are so many “retellings” of the beauty and the beast story out there and I know the original is a classic but frankly the romantic beauty and the beast story is a bit boring to me. This story was so much more exciting and adventurous.

I liked the fact that Rhen, the Prince with the curse is from the fairytale like kingdom of Emberfall, while Harper is a real girl with cerebral palsy from Washington DC, who mistakenly gets kidnapped to try to break the curse. The book focuses on the curse and the enchantress who put the curse on the prince as well as her reasons so much more than in most retellings I have seen before.

The relationship between Rhen and Harper is important, but not as important as his kingdom and his people which he has tried to protect throughout the time he has been cursed, but he finds out that he really hasn’t been doing it at all. This is book 1 of 3 and now that book 2, A Heart so Fierce and Broken, is soon to be coming out and is available for pre-order, it is a great time to start this series.
