Elissa I believe so. I know I listened to the audio version and would not do so around children.
Fangdangled This is an adult series. It's never been considered a YA. It is one of the best UFs going though.

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

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

One of my goals in life is to devour every installment in every Urban Fantasy series the moment they release, but regrettably I’m stuck “adulting” more often than I’d like which forces me to pick and choose, and that’s why Cecy Robson’s WEIRD GIRLS were left on my shelf until 2016. There is a silver lining though; I can now bask in six full length and several short stories worth of awesomeness in one great big listening spree!

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.

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

A good start to a series. It definitely seems like the beginning to series as a lot of things are left in transit.

The story is about Celia and her 3 sisters. She's the eldest and basically the one in charge. She is the most mature, where two of her sisters are loud and brash with the youngest being shy and delicate. The sisters all have unique paranormal powers because they received them via a curse, so they're still human but with added talents. After they kill a bad vampire they come to the a

1 Star This read felt very Young-Adult to me,which is not really my cuppa.So you should probably take my rating,with a grain of salt.Just sayin.


It was a challenge not to DNF this read and somehow I successed pulling through this one.

My BIGGEST problem with this book,was how difficult it was for me to connect to main lead,Celia.She was just going on and on about her life so just came to a point where I couldn't care less about what was happening to her or her sisters,even if I tried.

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

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

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-

Recommends it for: fans of UF with some romance that is both humorous and intense, fans of sister bonding in fiction
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
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”.

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

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 you

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.

After a shaky start, I really enjoyed this.

Despite taking a while to grab me and a few minor complaints about the characterization of the Wird sisters, this ended up being a really fun urban fantasy romp with some great action scenes, sizzling sexual tension and really fun magical elements.

Told from eldest sister Celia Wird's POV, she and her three sisters are introduced to us in the opening scene already in hot water with master vampire, Misha, having been summoned to "vampire court" on cha

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
