Just incase you weren’t aware, Cursed is the second book in the Demon Kissed Series and I am 100% in love with it. The first book I reviewed on my blog was Demon Kissed…you can find it HERE if you haven’t already read the book.

Cursed begins a couple of weeks after Collin threw himself into the Underworld to save Ivy. This series will leave you wondering who to trust, what is good, and is anything pure evil. So, let’s talk about the characters for a minute…

Review on Linny's Literature

Cursed, the second installment in the Demon Kissed series, did not disappoint. Like the first book, it was filled with action and thrill that didn't fizzle out like some books do after the first. Exciting things happened from the beginning to the end! Not only does the action continue full-force, but I also continue to adore the characters, especially Ivy.

Ivy's life does NOT get any easier, but she remains strong and does what she has to do to save herself and the peo

I really enjoyed this book, I liked Demon Kissed more because I love the relationship between, Collin and Ivy and we don't get to see much of it since Collin is stuck in hell and Ivy is trying to find him but you get a sense of the deep love they feel for each other. I love all the interesting trials Ivy must overcome during her journey and the surprising events that take place involving Eric and Shannon. I hated the ending just because I didn't want it to end, its such a page turner moment, I c ...more

Ivy. Strong, Heroic, Powerful, Constantly trying to do the right thing. Constantly being twarted. Every time she thinks shes taking a step in the right direction something unpredictable happens making her seemingly good deed into something catastrophic. But does she give up? Nope.

Collin. Freakin selfless. All he cares about is keeping Ivy away so she can be safe even though he is literally going through hell. Not to mention charming and (in my mind) hot:)

Eric. Holy crap Eric! He went from being

Cursed is the second installment in the Demon Kissed series and it was just good as the first. It opens up just a few days after Demon Kissed ended and Ivy is trying to come to terms with the deaths of her Mother and Collin. One thing she just cannot overcome is the feeling that Collin is still alive down in the pits of hell but she is also afraid of being wrong.

When a vision informs Ivy that Collin is indeed still alive she decides to form a mission to save him, even if it means that she will b

Holy ending Batman. I have read way too many books between the first and second demon kissed installment and it took me a bit to remember everything that took place in the first book, but it all came back and I remembered why I loved it so much. I missed Collin and wished somehow there would have been more interaction with him, but understand the storyline didn't really permit that. This book left me with SOOOOO many more questions than I can count, my brain was on fire last night after I finish ...more

When I first got the book in the mail, I felt a little jipped because it wasn't near as thick as the first book and I loved the first book. It took me about a chapter to get into the book because I was really sick and turning the pages only to find out what happens next, not to enjoy the journey... But I got there, and found that I actually enjoyed this second book even more than the first. Ms. Ward's descriptive storytelling and captivating characters make for some very enjoyable reading. ...more

Ivy Taylor is back to kicking Valefar butt and is doing better than ever. Only problem is, Collin is still trapped in the Underworld and Kreturus is still out to devour her unearthly powers. Mix that with betrayal, lust, and the ability to be the unluckiest person in the world and you’ve got one hell of a fight.

From the moment I read the first sentence of Demon Kissed, the first novel in this outstanding series, I was in love with Ivy Taylor. She’s strong and her endurance to keep going drives

Cursed is the second novel in the Demon Kissed series by H.M. Ward.

The beginning of this novel was extremely repetitive. I’ve already read the first book in this series; I don’t need nor want the author to remind me of every single thing that happened. I don't mind a few recaps here and there, but I don't need to be retold every event. The first 30% of this novel was either repetitive or predictable. Yes, I learne

In this sequel we find Ivy dealing with the aftermath of Collin's sacrifice and the revelations that unfolded in the lead up. She travels to the Martis headquarters in Rome with her bff Shannon so she can use their extensive library to research a way to gain access to Hell, kill Kreturus and free Collin all without fulfilling the prophecy. Will things turn out in Ivy's favour ? can she trust the people around her ? even though they think she is evil with her tainted blood and will they ever trus ...more

Cursed is an action packed sequel filled with demons,dragons and soul sucking kisses. This book is about the adventures Ivy goes through trying to save her soul mate Collin from the Underworld. Nothing is what it seems in Hell and friends may be enemies but Ivy keeps on going. Some shocking revelations happen in this book that explain some loose ends from the first story and you will not be disappointed. The author does spend a lot of time recapping the first book(about 30%)in case you forgot an ...more

What a good ending! Was not expecting that.

The beginning of the book seemed like the author was recapping what happened in the last book, which annoyed me, it seems like i was wasting my time reading it.Though the middle the book was adventurous.

I wanna know what's with the deal with the Dragon???

Anyway, looking forward to read the next book. :3

I loved the first book in this series. i really liked the story and the characters.

And then I startet the second book Cursed. I really did not like it. For too long nothing happened and i had problems finishing it, I normally read a book in 1-2 days. This time it took me 5 days because i had to put it down again and again.

It was disappointing for me because i really liked the first book.

I don't know its possible but Ivy got so much more annoying. So while Collin is literally getting tortured in Hell, she kind of just sits around for three months. She is so fricking annoying sometimes I had to set down the book. In the beginning of the book after she lands in Italy, there are tons of Martis around or whatever, and she gets pissed at her best friend because she didn't tell her. She gets SUPER mad at her. This is the best friend that literally broke the rules for her and if found ...more
