Isolation is all nineteen-year-old Terra Materson has known for the last six years. Hiding from the cruel whispers and judgmental stares of society, she suffers the pain of the world around her in silence. The air that moves … the water that flows …the fire that burns … the earth that grounds, Terra feels it all.

I really liked Cursed by Grace White because there was a bit of mystery and intrigue for it. I knew something was going on that was beyond the whole "she's a witch" plot, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it and was surprised with the reveal when it came.
I liked the idea that this was in a college setting too and am definitely looking forward to book number two because I think tha ...more
Overall, CURSED had a sort of gentle, delicate, intimate feel which I liked. And the idea of Gaia, Eros, the Chosen and the threats to the Earth I liked. The fact that it was set in college, and not young teens in high school I liked. So there were positives to the story. It was also cleanly written, and the characterizations were solid enoug ...more
I make no secret of the fact that reverse harem is one of my favourite types of book to read... there is nothing better than knowing, or at least hoping, that when the final page is turned the girl will get all the guys... add to that a young adult/paranormal story created by the alter ego of one of my newly discovered favourite authors and this book was always going to be a must read for me...
The original premise deals with weighty topics of loss, and isol ...more
I did not read enough of it to be able to form any sort of concrete opinion on the story (meaning it was short). But as much as there was to read, I liked.
An interesting concept for the story, plus the characters all seemed to be pretty interesting. For anything other than that, I'll have to read the next book. ...more
What great writing! This book is just full of little nuggets of world building on each and every page. I honestly had no clue what was coming next and stayed hooked the whole time. Incredible world building, great characters, and story that will keep you wanting more. If you are looking for a great slow burn paranormal reverse harem romance novel then this is the book for you. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
am always so nervous to go outside of my comfort zone, but after reading the Lilituria Phrophecy and enjoying it so much, I am so excited to have another series from this author, and the first book in the Gaia Chronicles did not disappoint!
In this book we meet Terra Materson, who has always known there was something 'different' about herself. She is in touch with the feelings of those around her, ...more
When her grandmother dies, she gives Terra one last gift . . . ad ...more
I'm not even sure where to start with this book!
Terra is not your average girl.
Being able to feel the pain of the world, well the Earth, is a huge burden to carry.
Everyone thinks you're a freak and forming relationships is hard.
It's why Terra decided it was easier to isolate herself away from everyone, but her grandmother.
However, after her Gran passes, she learns she applied to college for Terra.
And she was accepted.
Starting life anew at college is supposed ...more
I thought this book was a really promising start to a series, and really my only complaint was the fact that it went SO fast, and was SO short. Seriously, I read this book in just a few hours, and just when things were getting interesting BAM it's over, and ...more
This book was nothing like I expected. It was so much better than I could have thought. It starts off slow and finally builds to more Drama and secrets than you could ever imagine. When starting this book, make sure you give the book about 5 chapters and then it starts to pick up.
Terra has grown up knowing she was different but never really knew what it was. When Terra's parents died, she moved in with her grandmother and cared for her unt ...more
I think this read is exactly that, an introduction. Nothing much has happened plot-wise but I can admit that I'm interested at what, where and how it intended to go from here on.
Again, since this is pretty much and intro, I still haven't made up my mind regarding the heroine, Terra. Before meeting the guys, I can say that I like her. But I got wary of her at the last few chapters. (Maybe 80% onwards).
She got...a little wishy-washy. She couldn't decide for herself if she wanted space or wanted...more
I bounced between a 3 and 3.5 for this. I enjoy the author's YA/NA works but this one felt more like a prequel for an awesome series. Terra is a straight-laced girl who's known hardships and heartache, and going to her dream college is supposed to help. But a lot of things are more than they appear, and some may be too much for Terra to handle.
I enjoyed Terra. She was cautious, but curious, and tried to do things out of h ...more
Terra is different. She can sense the earth and know its pain. After the death of her grandmother, her only relative, Terra leaves her home to go to college, a school she was planning on attending a year before, until her grandmother got sick.
When she arrives on campus she meets several guys at different times, all whom she feels some kind of connection to. She also meets a girl, her dorm RA, who sense ...more
Terra provided a great POV into her world, where she feels nature, feels Earth. And the guys were a great representation of their elements. Of course with a name like Terra - which is Latin for Earth - and her connection to the world, the revelations in the book com ...more
written so thought through and just read so well. I just could
not put the book down.
This book is about Terra and her four elements. She is
devastated after her grandmother's passing but even more
surprised when she receives an envelope from her
grandmother sending her to college. And that is where she
meets for wonderful young men she drawn to them but she
doesn't understand why. She's only felt this before from the
earth from the winds f ...more
Terra has always felt different. Her parents never understood her and her childhood was hard as others teased her. It is not till she goes to live with her grandmother that she feels a sense of home. Her grandmother encourages her to trust her abilities and let the world in, literally for Tessa as she can feel life itself around her. Her grandmother wanted her to continue on with her li ...more
I was intrigued by the blurb saying this book is a reverse harem book. The only other book I’ve read with that description is CL Stones Academy series and I love those books. So I wanted to see how this book measured up. It was good.
Terra is a shy girl who has a lot of hurt and heartbreak in her past. The four guys come into her life little by little showing her more of her powers.
It is kinda repetitive, especially the parts where Terra keeps describing the four Hs personalities. ...more
Terra is such a great character. I love how much she came out of her shell and grew as an adult. It was refreshing to have a main character of YA feel mature and not come off as a whiny teenager, as they so often do.
Her guys are all swoon worthy...especially Sol... I think I found my new book boyfriend. I just love the brooding alpha type.
I wish there would have been more int ...more
It isn't easy being the girl who feels the world...
Finding out the truth is never easy...
Right away, without getting into the heart of the story and without any answers, I already became emotionally invested in this read - I knew that I would not be able to stop reading once I started. And here I am up way past midnight because I just finished this magnificent book and now I am writing my review but it was and indeed it was worth it.
Reveals were made. Truths came out. Connectio ...more
She resides in the UK with her family, and lives for binge watching series on her Firestick, losing herself in a good book, and reliving her younger days through trashy teenage movies ... not necessarily in that order.
