What do sexy fae lords, a vampire assassin, and a mysterious castle have in common?

Yours truly.

Yeah no, I did not plan this.

When my bestie and I opened a fabulous bakery, I planned to live a long life shoving pumpkin muffins into my face hole and working them off during my self-defense class. 

But when a castle full of ridiculously gorgeous immortals showed up on the ley

What do sexy fae lords, a vampire assassin, and a mysterious castle have in common?

A cool and spunky baker, who rides a badass bike.

Coren Connely is perfectly happy with her perfectly normal life, running her own bakery with her best friend Hekla.
Until one day when she squeezes the brakes and almost eats the end of a bright blue Tesla. Because she suddenly sees a brand new hill above her town. And on the hill there is a castle. 'A legit castle. Like, Renaissance style.'
And bec

Beautiful cover on this book. Also props for putting the MMC on the cover instead of the FMC. I've noticed a trend in the YA and NA paranormal/fantasy novels where the Bad A female is on the cover. I actually grabbed this book because the cover featured the MMC instead. This made it stand out on my KU recommended feed.

This book read much more like a novella in the midst of a series where all the world building, explanations, and backstory happened somewhere else. It was unfortunate because ther

I have mixed feelings about this book. I love the FMC, her level of snark and attitude is divine, bleeding through with just the right amount of humor. However, as the situation she finds herself in reveals itself, I found the world itself a little flat. It’s.... awkward? She reacts appropriately, or so I think, but they don’t... and events progress in an oddly stilted manner.

- Great FMC.
- Well edited.
- Interesting concept.

- Too many questions!! How does the vamp know the other
3.5 disappointing and not-so-steamy stars

I had such high hopes for this novel but I was sorely letdown. I feel like this novel could have been great, all of the right ingredients were there: fantastical creatures, mystical lore, a devious curse, forbidden love, a snarky heroine. But I don't think that the author explored any of these elements to their full potential--the creatures were confusing, the lore was confusing, the curse was...confusing (I see a pattern here), the love was unbelievable,

I have just finished Fae Curse, I only started it yesterday but I simply could not put it down. I loved every moment of it and I really cannot wait until I can get my hands on the next book in the series!

Right from the start I fell in love with Coren, she is exactly the kind of snarky, strong, female protagonist I adore. I also love that her best friend Helka was so awesome and the two of them supported each other. We need more examples of female friendships like this in fiction! Coren is such

Well this wasn't bad, but it was good either.
Everything felt rushed from the discovery of the castle, to the weird romance, to the whirlwind ending.

Also-concerning the romance- I mean, even if he says the lure doesn't work on someone who isn't attracted in the first place- doesn't mean its not manipulative and kind of gross.

But I will say I liked the female friendship- so plus on that! Oh, and great cover!

Too Short

I have some mixed feelings. I’m docking a star mostly because this felt super rushed. I feel like there were a lot of threats and critical problems that needed delving into, and instead it was all kinda tied up with a pretty bow. I would have liked deeper development all around. Hekla and Kaippa are my favorite characters, I need more of them... like a lot more. All considered though, I was definitely entertained, and I’m ready for the next book.

Interesting read. Can’t wait to see what else happens

The main character is by far the best just because of the stuff that comes out of her mouth. I also really enjoyed the pop culture references to the supernatural world (Buffy, Supernatural and The CW shows).

I’m intrigued with what will happen next as she finds out who she really is and where her feelings will take her.

Fae Curse

Fantastically thrilling! An absolute fun fantasy tale full of magic, suspense, snark and a dash of romance. I really enjoyed the story and all the characters. I can’t wait to see where the story goes from here!

Eve Hunt weaves an exciting tale full of magic, fae, vampires, shifters and a witch in this first book in a new series entitled Yew Queen. Coren and her friend Hekla run a very good bakery with scrumptious to die for delicacies, and they used to live a normal kind of life until Coren saw the Italianesque Castle on the hill in the centre of town and was approached by a hunk of a man who was steaming hot. Lucus however, had green eyes, pointed ears, vine leaves on his eyelashes and horns so Coren ...more

I absolutely love this story. Love the way only the first female can see the cursed castle with the Fae and vampire in there. The backstory of the war between the mages, fae and vampires and how it occurred is intriguing and also an example as to how wars can be started! Punish the many for the mistake of one! I love the characters especially Caren and Lucus and their fated bond and am looking forward to where that will go and what path they will take as they are waring races. I am also looking ...more

I just couldn't get into this book. The flow was a bit stop & go, and the world building was learn as the heroine learns. The writing style was a bit awkward for me to read. The humor interjected was the only upside that kept me reading until the point I gave up. The characters were very polarizing for me. I just never got to the point where I wanted to keep reading. Other readers may appreciate this where I didn't. Needless to say, I won't be continuing with the series.

Jumpy but good

Some of the writing is jumbled and messy, it doesnt read right. It's a good story line putting those things to the side. I think the next book will decide the series.

This is an intriguing urban fantasy romance that follows the POV of heroine Coren. It has a mix of humans, Fae, vampires, mages, and others are also mentioned. There’s mystery and adventure with humor and some heat. Coren doesn’t believe in the supernatural, but when she comes face to face with Fae and the vampire, she has no choice not to. She has a strong personality and doesn’t like being pushed around. I like the characters for the most part, but Coren’s voice is sometimes juvenile. The scen ...more

I really enjoyed this book! It has set out the world we are entering nicely and building up the characters well. I couldn't put it down and read it really quickly. I'm loving all the characters already and can't wait to see where book 2 takes us.

This book is actually a 4.5 stars but damn cliffhanger! I would have loved it to be longer also. I already pre-ordered book 2!! Fantastic adventure and some really great one liners!

Dark-haired, sexy males? Yes, please! This is my type of book with magic, attraction, unraveling mystery. Plus, Coren has lots of attitude. I read it in one day! Couldn’t put it down. Good thing I had the day off work!
DNF @ 69%

Just not a fan of anything that is going down. It feel like something is missing and I'm not able to connect with the characters. Probably because I'm the kind of person who'd help the dudes not die, while she... isn't. So, she is annoying me hardcore.

Note: I received this book from the author and I voluntarily give this review, it is my honest opinion.

Fae Curse is the first book in the Yew Queen trilogy by Eve A. Hunt and if you like sexy fae, alpha but-holes, snarky vampires, loads of magic, and baked goods then you have to read this.
This was such a super fun and quick read that had an interesting storyline. Coren is snarky, funny, strong, and independent. The fact that she owns her own bakery and loves the products she makes just delighted

Fae Curse is the first book in the Yew Queen series by Eve A. Hunt. This book brings you Fae, Vampires, Mages, magic and more!

Right from the start I loved the female lead Coren. She’s a snarky, strong, feisty female lead who doesn’t like taking other people’s crap. Her and her best friend Hekla run a bakery together and support each other, which I absolutely love. I also love their unusual names for something set in the modern world!

Lucus.. I adore Lucus! He’s so conflicted, but

Oh, I love a good book cover! This cover was pretty different from the norm by having the main male lead as the focus – the colours, the energy of the image – it was so enticing and inviting! And it was an invitation well worth taking up!

The plot was unique and engaging. I enjoyed the fact that once I understood the premise and the history and I had a clue of where things might be headed, that there was still a feeling of… more-ness. You know the more-ness, the one you feel in your bones while
