The Baskins were ready to have their child. Mr. Baskins finally gave birth to a baby girl, but wait, she still has to push, the doc looks and there's another one coming, one more push doc says and it's another girl! Oh no! It's happening again! The doctor looked dumbfounded, well...let's look, and another one slid out almost before he could get his hands out to catch her. Mr. & Mrs. Haskins you have triplets and all girls! But the ultrasound it said only, but...

This is Marsha Black's Debut Novel. WOW!!!!!!!!!!! What a start. This is Hope's Story and it is amazing.

That is where she meets Bryce the new kid at school. He is not what she expects. When she meets Bryce her world as she knows it has changed forever. Bryce is over protective, sexy type. The characters are very strong and

If you're looking for YA fantasy with a strong female lead, this is for you! I am excited to continue reading this series, and was really happy to get my hands on this story on audio. The narrator does a fantastic job of bringing the story to life without being overly dramatic.

As a first time reader of this author I must say that it was a great start to a YA paranormal series that I can not wait to get more of. Hope and her sisters are the only triplets know to be born in their hometown which makes them stand out as it is but on their 16th birthday they become part of a prophecy that has been around for centuries. Once I began reading I didn’t want to put my kindle down, I was hooked. Yes this is a young adult read but I felt as though there’s so much more to the stor ...more

This book is a good review from a promising author.
Overall, this is a very engaging story with characters that are relatable. I look forward to hearing more about Hope and her sisters.
Some of the story is predictable, but there are enough twists and turns to keep you wanting more.
The only word of caution that I would have to give is that some of the grammar is not as tight as it could be. This wasn’t enough to dissuade me, but it is something that I found to be annoying at times.

This book is for youth, but once I started reading I couldn’t stop. I loved everything about the storyline. I was so excited I started to read the second book right away.
It feels great to feel young as you read Marsha Black’s books. She is an amazing author. I cannot wait for book three Faith’s Story. I know it will be just as amazing.

· “This is my curse, my loss, my deepest pain.” ·

It has been since I last read a fantasy and I don’t freaking now why because I looove the genre! The Triplet’s Curse, by Marsha Black was certainly a great read! This one has all the key elements to a great captivating story: weird events going on, a bad-ass curse that goes way back in time, triplets, a few very good twists in the pot, some romance, and a lot of ice!

I will start by saying that Hope reminds me a lot of Elsa in Frozen, for her perso

High above the Earth
Three daughters shall be born
On their 16th birthday, their destiny

One daughter, born with knowledge

This is the Triplet’s Curse

I received an advanced reader copy for the purpose of review. And man, am I glad I did. This story is the first in a three-part series about three sisters who are cursed. Hope is definitely a character I can relate to. Grade oriented, not really part of the popular crowd, and with no desire to be, she is just a normal teenager struggling with getting along with her sisters, looking forward to getting her license... and having the joy of always being thrust into the spotlight she hates, because s ...more

I'm just going to be outright, despite how dorky it may sound:
The general premise of "The Triplet's Curse-Hope's Story" has a shojo anime/manga flavor to it. There, I said it. And to me, that was amazing! Let me explain:
We have a protagonist in which a power in her is activated, and she spends the novel learned to control and understand it. There is a transfer student that's directly involved. Weird things happy. So, anyone that is a manga/anime fan will totally get this.
And if not? That doesn't

For a debut novel it was nothing short of brilliant. I fell in love with the triplets, but not just the triplets the entire family and Bryce and his dad. This was a entertaining read that captured the readers attention from the opening of the story. When Hope the feisty thought provoking triplet has a run in with Bryce a high school boy that irritates her to no end their word as they know it is forever changed. Hope and Bryce realize after things start changing around them that they just might b ...more

As this authors first book she blew me away. i loved the way she went between point of view, making it so easy to follow the story. Her characters were wonderfully developed and made you fall in love with them. Hope is the main character and i adore how strong she made her. The depth of the relationship between Hope and Bryce is unbelieveable, their strenghts and weaknesses make them who they are. I was blown away by the depth and levels of development this new author shows, I strongly suggest t ...more

1st off come on book 2!! Hope's story was a good read, I loved all the characters and the descriptions took you right into the book. I usually don't like a book that goes from one person's POV to another person every chapter because you get a lot of repeat info, however going between Bryce and Hope worked out well, even though you did get some repeat info it is my opinion that the story needs this duel POV because you get to see and feel through Hope's eyes so to speak and then you get to experi ...more

OH my goodness, where do I begin? This book was awesome! This book had a great flow to it, and the characters were well developed. Hope is the main character and it was really neat to see her come into her own, into her powers. Bryce, the new kid at school seems to immediately have a connection to Hope. I loved the story line. This book was a definite page turner and I am excited to dive into the next book in this series.

Wow! Marsha has a way with words! Once you start reading you won’t wanna put this book down! I can’t wait until book 2 gets released!

The Triplets Curse – Hope’s Story, starts out with Mrs. Baskins giving birth to a baby girl and learns there’s 3. Fast forward to 16 years later and you follow the journey of Hope Baskins, one of the triplets, as she learns of and her role in the curse. It’s a roller coaster of emotions and Hope is the center of it.
You see how she meets the new guy, Bryce, and what

Loved it! Throughout reading the book I did notice some errors and several bits that didn't make sense. However, the story was so interesting that those things didn't take away from the story. I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book.

Debut novel for Marsha Black and she did an amazing job! You can't help but love Hope, Bryce, and the rest of the characters. And then you'll be wanting book 2 to come out now. I would highly recommend this book especially if you love YA books!

Hope, Faith and Destiny...triplets bound for greatness!!! Marsha Black spins a tale of a curse that began in the Renaissance Era about a set of triplets who must determine the fate of good vs. evil in the world. A classic battle, but Black puts a wicked spin on this tale. The triplet's, each with their own personalities, and those trained to help them, the Scylanthicas are so uniquely portrayed. Black presents a story that keeps you turning the pages, with no breaks in the suspense or action; ro ...more

Hope has two identical sisters; she's a triplet. Unfortunately, a great evil has cursed the triplets and each will have a battle to face. If they don't win their battles, the curse indicates that a great evil will conquer the planet. Hope knows nothing about this until the triplets turn 16 and she starts having visions. A new guy, Bryce, arrives in town to explain the curse to her and train her, but is he ultimately trustworthy? That's just one of the things that will keep you in suspense as you ...more

A Prologue begins with the birth of the triplets: Hope, Destiny, and Faith then chapter one jumps ahead to 15 years and 29 days later (2 days before their 16th birthday). The Prophecy becomes the groundwork for Hope’s Story. It’s hard to believe this is Marsha Black’s debut novel. The Triplet’s Curse-Hope’s Story is a fantastic YA paranormal series.

Hope, Faith, and Destiny are the core of the story and triplets on their 16th birthday they become part of a prophecy that has been around for centur
