The Wird sisters are content to avoid the local vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region—until one of them blows up a vampire in self-de...more

description

SKEPTICAL . It is how I feel with any author of an Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance of whom I haven't read before. And it is exactly how I approached reading this novel. I immediately went in search of anything and everything that I might find disapproving about this book, and came up with......nothing. Yes, nothing.

Instead, I fell headfirst, flat on my face, in love with the story, characters, and writing. At this point I commenced drooling on myself over Misha and Aric, and all the other h...more

You should have seen the look on my face when I finished the last chapter of Sealed with a Curse. It was downright comical! I always get excited when I discover a new series I like, but when it’s Urban Fantasy, I get virtually ecstatic. And lo and behold, Cecy Robson wrote a very promising first installment.

Celia Wird and her three sisters have supernatural powers as a result of a backfired curse. Emme is telekinetic and has the ability to heal people, Taran is a magic worker, Shayna can turn ju...more

Do you cave to all your baser desires?

Refuse to filter your stupidity?

Get psychotically violent if someone threatens you?

Get psychotically jealous if another female even touches the man you have your sights set on?

Think that all those in possession of a vagina are either prostitutes or idiots?

Are you also looking for a bunch of superhumans to share your misogyny and hypocrisy with???

Well boy, have I got a book for you!

No?

Sunova....what in the ham sandwich just happened? Man, I seriously can't recall the last time a book sucker punched me so freakin' hard with a fist full of disappointment straight to the face.

That was totally unexpected, especially considering the fact that my reading relationship with Sealed with a Curse started off blissfully well. The book made me smile & laugh, and it even made me snort coffee out my nose in a rather unattractive, unladylike fashion (which of course I will vehemently den...more

Cecy Robson is a rising star...Sealed With a Curse is even better, funnier, more suspenseful, and more kick ass than its prequel ~Under The Covers

Cecy Robson is a rising star and I'm glad to be a part of her beginning. Like I said on my review for The Weird Girls, she will make her mark with this series and this novel supports my prediction even more. Sealed With a Curse is even better, funnier, more suspenseful, and...more

Wowsa! I liked this book so much we have picked Sealed with a Curse by Cecy Robson MUST READ of this winter! Four times a year we nominate a book from the paranormal genre that we think you Must Read. Not think about it…. We just know you going to love these! We had not so many this year as we would have liked… But boy do I have one for you now!! *grins*

I almost marked this as 4 stars, but I laughed my ass off at this book since it had tons of stuff I liked in it. So my rare 5 stars, here it is. I was a little apprehensive at first, since I thought it was going to be like Yasmine Galenorn's Sisters of the Moon (which I didn't really like). But this was far different from that. While there are 4 sisters, only 1 of them is the main character. And you see just enough of the sisters for them not to confuse you or get on your nerves. Their personali...more

Mon avis en Français

My English review

After the novella that precedes this book, I was curious to discover an entire story featuring our four sisters. I must say it is quite rare to have so many main characters in the same novel, and as I said for the novella, I think it is a big work to make them all interesting, as well as the secondary characters. But Cecy Robson has completely succeeded in this challenge, and it was very interesting to learn more about all our protagonists. However, I ho...more
Jessie Potts
What it's about: This is book one of the Weird Girls series and involves four sisters, who each has powers that are … well, weird … and the cause of a backfired curse. When one of the sisters accidentally blows up a vampire (vampires aren't aggressive in this series), they're going to have to figure out what's going on before things get crazier.

Why you should read it: This is a funny book. Seriously, I was laughing and enjoyed reading every page. Celia is complicated and caught between two domin...more

Holy crap! I think I found a new fav!
Full review to come soon!

edit for Full Review:

It is rare that an Urban Fantasy book can grab me from the first few pages. Maybe because usually there is a lot of world and character building going on and sometimes that can make the story drag a little, even if the book is fabulous by the end.

But this book, this one definitely got me hooked after the first few pages. Their was action, humor, danger, sisterly bonding, witty one liners, something fun and comple...more

Romancing the Dark Side Review:

A breakthrough series in the urban fantasy genre!

The Wird Sisters are back with even more butt-kicking action, suspense and sarcasm than before! There's never a dull moment for these four sisters who try their best to stay under the radar of the supernatural world only to have it show up on their door step. When Celia's sister Taran has an encounter with a vampire who ends up dead, the Wird sisters are brought forth to the vampire council for judgement, and in tur...more

I loved loved loved this book! This book was everything I was hoping the last book I read would be. The characters are fun, they are sassy and kick major ass! “Because girls kick ass, it says so on a t-shirt”. (This was on some tv show or movie but I can’t remember which one) LOL A I adored Celia and all three of her sisters. Each had a fully developed and completely different personality. Anyone with a sister can certainly appreciate the sister bond they share! I know I did. ;) Ms. Robson has s...more

I haven’t been reading a lot of urban fantasy lately. Almost all the UF I had been reading had the heroine down-trodden with no “happily-ever-after” in sight. There were a few exceptions but UF just wasn’t fun for me anymore… until NOW!!!

I had such a blast reading Sealed with a Curse. It took me back to all the UF books I read when I first started reading. I picked up a little bit of Rachel Morgan’s “unique-ness”, saw some Anita Blake and her hot master vamp Jean-Claude and alpha were-...more

Loved reading this story of the sisters with werewolves and vampires. Great action and story, with a touch of blooming love. Can't wait for the next one!

4.5 Stars!

Trying to avoid the supernatural world Celia, who is more use to being alone, and her three sisters end up in Vampire court, charged with murder of one of Misha Aleksandr family members, to prove they were not as guilty yet to learn of a bloodlust spreading through the vampire families. Now the Supernatural world kno...more

Full review at Talk Supe

True to its Urban Fantasy flavor, SEALED WITH A CURSE has a lot of magic, ass kicking and door busting scenes. The story is pumped with adrenalin plus with four sisters sharing the limelight, the story is far from stale and boring. Each sister has her own personality: Shayna has the surfer attitude; Emme is as sweet as honey; Taran the diva; and Celia the indomitable big sister. None of these girls are cookie-cutter supers too, I have to admit I was a little skeptical th...more

Sealed with a Curse is the first book in debut author Cecy Robson’s Weird Girls series and let me tell you, it’s fantastic. As soon as you start this book, you are drawn into the action. Cecy writes as though you know what is going on so there isn’t any of that ‘so this is the world and this is what happened before the book started and this is what you should expect so pay attention so you don’t miss anything’ crap detail. I like this idea and I think yo...more

Yes! I found a new UF series to fall in love with. It’s weird, because I actually grabbed this off of Netgalley without even fully reading what it was about, but it obviously has werewolves or shifters by looking at the cover. Here’s the thing: I’m not big on werewolf and shift stories, so I usually pass them up. The book gods were definitely guiding me with this, because I don’t know what would possess me to immediately get Sealed with a Curse when I normally wouldn’t have.

If you’ve been hanging out on my blog lately, you’ve probably seen me gush about Cecy Robson’s THE WEIRD GIRLS: A NOVELLA. Well, I just finished an ARC of her debut urban fantasy novel, SEALED WITH A CURSE, and let me tell you, folks — it totally blew me away! The things I loved about the novella are even more extraordinary in the novel.

I was so impressed with how deftly Robson balances action, suspense, and humor. In addition, the sexual tension between protagonist Celia and the men vying for h...more

I really enjoyed the novella that introduced these sisters and the world they live in, I liked it so much I gave it five stars. So I was pretty excited to read the full length novel, because while I do like novellas, novels have always been my favorite. Another thing that made me look forward to this book is how all encompassing this world is. What I mean by that is there are so many books out there that focus on one set...more

I don't often read paranormal and I am not a fan of vampires. But I L-O-V-E the Wird Sisters! They are funny, strong, and have their own distinct personalities. They are fiercely protective of each other emotionally as well as physically. They are everything you could ask for in a sister--and with special powers to boot.

Told exclusively in Celia's POV, the stories are action packed and laugh out loud funny with quick, witty dialogue and internal thought. I found myself reading "just one more cha...more

Cecy Robson’s debute novel, Sealed with a Curse, focuses on Celia Wird and her sisters, brutally nicknamed “the weird sisters” since school. The sisters were just plain old humans who were cursed at birth. But that curse became a gift…sort of. Celia can shift into a tiger. Just don’t get her too close to any other animal spirit, or she can end up shifting against her will. No new puppies for these sisters. Taran is the supersexy/badass sister who can harnesses the power of fire. Shayna can turn...more
 Danielle The Book Huntress (Angels Weep For Goodreads)
Sealed With a Curse starts out in medias res, and that pace pretty much matches what is found throughout this novel. I was a bit clueless at first as to what was going on, but I got sucked into the narrative and the Wird sisters' story almost immediately. There is more or less nonstop action, and the cool thing, is the heroine and her sisters are the main ones kicking butt and taking names. Along with laugh-out-loud humor and wonderful sisterly bonding, with a touch of romance, that adds up to a...more
Cat Russell  (Addicted2Heroines)
Sealed with a Curse is a fantastic urban fantasy debut filled with bad ass heroines, sexy supernatural heroes, intense action scenes, and plenty of laugh out loud moments.

The Wird sisters, Celia, Shayna, Taran, and Emme, were all well-crafted characters with a variety of personalities and unique talents. They possess abilities that are not easily defined and cannot be placed into one category. This makes them oddities in the supernatural community.

Celia, the Wird sister who is the main focus of...more

So funny! I was laughing like a mad person at three a.m. in the morning. Those four sisters are really something *snickers*
Ryan Snyder
AH! That was so amazing. I have to wait forever to read the next book! The teaser for book two did not help one freaking bit. Whew, I think I have a new favorite author. This woman is hilarious and makes some Bad- Ass characters. Celia is my hero! :D

I loved how she made all the sisters so unique.. and yet they all have the same profession. Each of the sisters was distinct in my mind. I mean, if you asked me right now, having read the book yesterday, I can tell you certain personality traits each...more
Jalisa
The novel starts running right out the gate. And it doesn't give you much time to breathe and catch your breath.

Robson has a way of combining nonstop action and humor that manages not to wear you out. I mean, not only does it not wear you out, but it makes you hunger for more. And in a book about a hunger that destroys families and lives, it’s both ironic and enjoyable.

The plot of Sealed isn’t as straightforward as I thought it was going to be. I kept feeling like we were coming to the root of t...more

Fun, fun, fun. This was my first thought when finishing Cecy Robson’s debut novel, SEALED WITH A CURSE. After having just recently finished the novella for the series, THE WEIRD GIRLS, I knew I was in for a wild ride and Robson did not disappoint.

One of the best things about Sealed with a Curse is its central cast of characters – the Wird sisters. I love these girls. There’s Celia, the oldest and the main character of this story, who can shift into a tiger in addition to having a couple of othe...more

I'm going gush for a moment, so you can skip it if you would like, BUT OH MY GOSH!! IT WAS SOOO GOOD! Ugh just soo good. I think my twin was going to actually kill me because i kept bothering her last night telling her about this part and that, and how funny this line was. Okay now on to my actual reviewing of this book.

There isn't any foreplay on this book but only after i got half way through it, i realized - oh there was a prequel novella...well damn. But honestly i didn't need it, but I lov...more
