5 Cranky Stars

Genesis is still coming to terms with her new-found powers. She’s a wolf and a nymph which is a mighty odd yet deadly combination. She is determined to prove herself to her pack. She has been traversing all over looking for something that is missing in her world and when she finally finds it she holds on with both hands. She thinks she has made allies but in a world of dog eat dog and everyone wants to be an Alpha she has to remain on guard. She sets off to Russia to learn more abo

The Curse picks up immediately where The Accalia left off which, unfortunately means, Genesis Berkeley is still a spoiled, rotten, brat.
For a second, I was ready to diagnose her with bipolar disorder. One minute she's pissed at Liam for saving her life. Then she’s angry with Madeline for saving her life, and forgiving Liam, then best friends with Madeline again and grieving over the loss of her lover even though she's the one who sent him away. For the first half of the book, I almost wished the

I have been itching to read this book since the cliffhanger at the end of book 1 and I must say I was not disappointed! This book picks up right where book 1 ended and continues the story seamlessly. This installment will take you on an emotional roller coaster. This author does an amazing job of bringing the characters to life and sucking you into their world where you will be crying with them, getting angry, holding your breath, being excited at the same time rooting for them to overcome and w ...more

As good as the first!

Too often sequels fall flat, but this wasn't the case here! If you enjoyed the first book in the Accalia series you'll enjoy this one too!

HL Girton created a new werewolf mythos with book one and her well rounded and engaging characters soon became personal favorites. It ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, so I looked forward to book 2 with some degree of trepidation. Would the darkness and violence of book 1 corrupt the characters I’d grown to love and looked forward to learning more about? I needn’t have feared...

This book picks up where the first one leaves off, and holy moly it packs an emotional punch. I had to force myself to breathe and keep going because of the twists and turns. If you are looking for a series that keeps you glued to the pages, this series is for you.

I love the character of Genesis. She is fierce, and I want to be her when or if I ever grow up. The author has this way of creating these fantastical characters that you want to love. I love how fast paced the action was, it definitel

I'm beyond thrilled, The Curse picked up right where The Accalia left off with its wicked cliff-hanger. Sometimes, the author tosses in a major re-cap in the beginning which drives me absolutely bonkers. Not the case here, otherwise I would have flipped through the pages just to find out what happened next! Betrayal, lies and secrets is the Heart & Soul of book two and once you've finished reading, all of your burning questions will have been answered.

I love strong believable characters and H.

The Curse
By: H.L. Girton
Review by: Cady

I’d start by classifying this book as “young adult” to adult. The main character is out of high school, but is still young which I think makes it appeal to a younger demographic in general. However, don’t let that deter you from this tantalizing read. The cover art is very appealing to me for many reasons. It is simple, yet alluring and pairs well with the first book. The usage of the same model and font allows readers to associate the book with one anothe

Now that I have slept on it, and was able to get my thoughts in order, I finally think I can write a review that will give this book justice.

For those that have read my review on the first book, you know how badly I've been waiting for this one. The way the first book ended left me with anxiety for days and just HAD to know how it was resolved. And, while it was definitely resolved, it didn't ease my anxiety much as I continued to read.

This book definitely kept me on the edge of my seat, it wa

Wow! If you thought the first book in this series, The Accalia, was great, prepare to be blown away! This was an awesome addition to the story. The story starts off directly where the the first book ended. I like when stories do that. Right away the reader is diving back into the action. I don't want to give too much away. Especially if you have not read the first book (go no! Read it!). I just want to say that this book is even better than the first one and that is saying a lot. Our main charac ...more

Just amazing!
H. L. Girton has done it again and delivers with The Curse, a follow up to her first book The Accalia. I've been itching to read this book since the first book ended with a cliffhanger and was once again captured. The storyline is so gripping you can't put the book down. The characters are incredibly developed and integrated within the story where the book is easy to follow but yet does not loose it's edge or suspense. Chapters flow together seamlessly and keep you interested.

So many things happens in this book.

I just love those wolves, i can say another thing any more. I am hocked and now, just this wolf pack, fan :)

Genesis is looking for Liam, but he is no where to be found. But he is hurting and for that there will be consequences.
Genesis go to Russia to find out more about who she is, but what she found is more secrets, danger, death, loyalty...or is this all fake?
I am so happy that i cam across to this awesome author and that she made me in love with her wolfs.

As with the first book I can't wait to read more! The author does a great job and making a world that you never want to leave. Every single character either becomes your friends or your enemies too, as you travel on the crazy train along with Genesis and her pack of friends and family. I love a book/series that makes you feel a part of the tale that is being told. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is simply the typos. I wanted to explain that even though I gave only 4 stars the typos aren't ...more

A fantastic story! Book 2 continues with Genesis' story. So many new and interesting things are revealed within its pages. New events take place in Russia that begin to explain alot of unanswered questions. I loved all of the different dynamics and there were moments when I caught myself clenching my jaw. I fell back in love with the characters ♡ There are lots of interesting twists and turns. My heart had so much hope for certain characters but in some ways it was not meant to be.

This is the second book in the series. Genesis is being stalked by an unknown Were. No one knows why. She is seriously injured and she has driven Liam off. The pack must save her and then look for Liam. I don't want to do any spoilers so let me just say that this book is even more action packed than the first book. Things go from bad to worse and a trip to visit the Russian Pack leads to even more danger. But, ever the optimist, Genesis keeps putting herself and the pack in danger. She is so clo ...more

Great addition to the series! Nice growth with the characters. I loved seeing Genesis learn about her ability, getting better and better. Not a lot of surprises, but well crafted and perfect for the genre. Anyone who likes werewolves will probably love this story :)

I love the way the book started off and it grabs your attention right then and there to where you will not want to put the book down.

I have to first say WOW! I was so blown away by this book. I don't even know where to start with this review.
This book picks up where The Accalia left off so you must read that book first.
The whole book is packed with answers to many questions and gives you a lot more of the history of the Accalia. There are many twists and turns in the story. Its very gripping and keeps you turning the pages. Genesis and Liam have so much to overcome in this book. There are a few new characters that really ad

In book two you are faced with far more problems and twists than you can imagine. Everything you love about book one, will grow in book two. More romance, more confusion and a horrific couple of twists. You learn exactly what happened to cause the curse and the first step in stopping the curse.

Ok now, onto the next one!

Just kidding, in all seriousness this book series is one of my favorites, very great world building, you just keep getting surprised by all the really amazing original ideas. Th

Just like its predecessor 'The Curse' kept me on the edge of my seat and kept me racing to the next page to find out what was going to happen next. The novel starts off directly where the the first book ended. I like when stories do that. Right away the reader is diving back into the action.

This book was absolutely incredible, just wow. It picks up where The Accalia left off and was utterly gripping. It was so emotional and I found myself holding my breathe, completely anxious. The twists and turns were unexpected and there were some completely heartbreaking moments. Just when I thought things were getting resolved and I could relax, something else would happen and have me emotional and stressing again.

The second book in the series is even more action-packed than the first. Having reconciled with Liam and gaining loyalty from not one but two packs, Genesis has to face a new challenge: a certain curse that was placed on the very first wolf and the woman he loved. But with a threat coming from where she least expected, Genesis isn’t safe anymore even among her own kind, let alone a Demi-god, who she is to defeat.
The second installment, most of which takes place in Russia, was incredibly rivetin

Action, drama, suspense and of course romance!! This book has it all!

Whew, Liam is back, thank goodness!! I thoroughly enjoyed learning a little more about him and where he came from. Genesis discovers some new truths about herself and I was taken on a wild ride as she struggles to deal with them.

Wonderful second book. Great characters, great writing, I could not put it down!! I cannot wait for book three!

I found myself on edge and anticipating things this entire book. I do think ALMOST everything has ended up as it should so far, but the things that haven't have a proper emotional impact. I read this book so quick, and it was so good it makes other books lately seem boring. A great continuation of the series and can't wait to read the next. ...more

After the first book I was so ready to dive right into The Curse. I will say you will not a can not put this book down. Every chapter is captivating! I enjoyed reading this as much as I did the first book (which I have read twice). The Curse picked up right where The Accalia left of. It has so many BIG events happening throughout the duration of the book. So many shocking incidents that you won’t believe happened, it was just amazing. This is a must read! I promise you will not regret it.
