As always, Jennifer L. Armentrout provides an interesting plot with a killer romance. There wasn’t a single part of Cursed that I did not enjoy. One of the most interesting parts of the novel was all of the superpowers the characters had. I don’t think I would want any of the powers myself because they are all a little scary and have some serious drawbacks, but they were fun to read about. Ember’s power was the scariest of all: the ability to kill someone with a single touch.
While the plot was great, the romance is what really makes CURSED stand out. There was so much tension between Ember and Hayden because of Ember’s death touch. Imagine not being able to touch anyone—especially your crush—what a lonely existence. Hayden tries to help Ember cope with both her “gift” and her left over trauma and sparks fly everywhere, but there is a lot that stands in the way of their relationship—including Ember’s serious lack of trust in Hayden’s family.
Ember was in a horrific car crash and it was not an accident. As Ember tries to discover the truth behind the event that killed her father and destroyed her mother, she can’t help wondering what really happened and who caused it (and neither can I). Ember’s suspicions of Hayden’s family adds a lot of turmoil to their relationship and, of course, ads a creepy mystery to the story.
