Kirian and I were just twelve years old when I pulled him from the icy waters of the creek behind my house. As he looked in my direction with unseeing lavender eyes, I quickly realized our age was just about the only thing we had in common. He spoke with an accent, he had pointy ears, and he was so beautiful it made my heart ache. Oh, and he claimed to be a fae prince curs ...more

Maya Lemaire From my understanding there is 3 and one prequel novella. I think that is the whole series and they are all released.

The Fae King’s Curse is book two in the Between Dawn and Dusk series by Jamie Schlosser. I have been so excited to get started on this book, to read Kirian’s story. And wow! This was amazing! Jamie Schlosser has a hidden talent for writing paranormal romance. This world she has created is both beautiful and treacherous. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend reading the prequel, Between Dawn and Dusk. Not only is it amazing, it will introduce you to this world and also to Kirian.

My Review

This is fantasy romance with the majority of it set in the fae world it’s the story of Kirian and Quinn and If you’ve read the prequel you’ll know that Kirian was cursed with blindness by the witches in retaliation for the day soldiers actions towards them.
All the firstborn of the various kingdoms were afflicted with this fate and each also has a riddle that has the potential to break there curse.

“She is marked by the sky at night, you’ll know her by love at first sight”

This is Kirian’s riddle f

Beloved Realms, Royalties, Witches, Shadowlands, Landscapes and Creatures, thank you for introducing me to the fantastic story of Kirian!! 👏👏👏

Kirian was the son of Zella and Keryth. Now, King of the Night Realm.
He had inherited two powers and could control the weather and nature.
He met Quinn, a human girl, when they were both 12 y.o., had an amazing connection and became best friends. But as they were growing up, their feelings started going deeper!! 💘

This one was a bit of a departure for me. Not only was Jamie Schlosser a new to me author, but it was also a completely different genre than I've ever tried. I was dipping my toes rather reluctantly, even though I've been wanting to try the fantasy genre (eventually), I was still a little leery. I'm so glad I finally gave in. I got a message from her to try it, so I wanted to check it out before I went all crazy on my page. Well, res

3 stars. Love, love, loved the beginning. Then it got kinda,.... weird. Weird in a way where it felt like two different people wrote the book. One the beginning and one middle and end.

It could’ve been great. In the end I did enjoy it because it was a great way to deal with the eventual age gap and how the difference in the passing of time happens between the fae world and the human one.

So yeah. Liked it. Was entertaining. And yes, I’ll be reading the next one.

Yeah...this wasn’t good. The concept had potential but the plot holes and the weird ages...not my cup of tea.

I was intrigued in the first quarter but after that I wanted to put it down cause I felt no connection to the characters or the story :(
I really wanted to like this but the writing style was...different to what i usually like.

I was going to DNF this but I had to power through to add to my read list. I’m sad to say i will not be continuing this series.
*4.5 stars

Quinn and Kirian met when they were children, and have been best friends for years. However, Kirian is not from Earth. He is from a fantasy land! Kirian is the future king of this land and was cursed as a child. Witches caused him to become blind, and he is not able to get his sight back until he meets his mated mate. Through the years of their friendship, Kirian and Quinn have fallen for each other but have never admitted their feelings. Quinn comes to him one day to tell him that she

5 ‘ I Choose You’ Stars

Aaaawww… The Fae King’s Curse has completely blown my mind! The perfect communion of the most enthralling of fantasy reads with the most passionate and perfect of romances! One of my top reads of, not only the year, but EVER!!!

First of all, I’ve got to point out I’d never in a million years know by the exquisite writing that this was Ms. Schlossers’ first venture into PNR/Fantasy, because, as an avid reader of the genre, I can hone

Hands down my favorite thing written by this author and that’s saying a lot since I adore her other books! An entirely captivating world built with relatable characters, I was hard pressed to put it down! Beautifully written in terms of how perceived disabilities/differences are handled and how they affect the overall character development. My only regret, although this is a complete standalone, is that I have to wait for the next in the series...I don’t want to wait! It’s so good! I’m entranced ...more

Really liked it! This story is quite unique and I just loved how Kirian and Quinn met when they were kids and practically grew up together. They had a beautiful friendship that turned into undying love. They are true soulmates. Love them so much!

Mehhhh. This felt almost like YA to me, and I am not a YA fan. There was almost no steam (no sex till 73% and only one scene) and I could not get over the fact that Quinn was only 18.

Sometimes I get to read a beautiful fairytale love story, one where I get to fall in love, chapter by chapter, line by line, word by word, this one happened to start at 12 years old. So beautiful, it made my heart ache with all the sweet feels. There is not enough stars for this book, so I’ll give it infinity stars...I know, right.

Jamie Schlosser knocked this fae romance out of the park!

I absolutely adored this charming story with characters who captured my heart. A handsome fae king cursed by a spell, and a uniquely beautiful heroine whom he chooses to be his mate.

As I read the words, I was there. I swear I was. The superb storytelling of this author transported me to another place and time. To a world so vivid and colorful and oh so amazing. Everything was described perfectly with fascinating detail. I felt as if I was

The Fae King’s Curse by Jamie Schlosser




I know Jamie wrote a prequel for this story but I don’t think we truly got the full comprehensive look at just how talented this writer is, especially when it comes to switching over from her usual quirky contemporary romance stories to an action-packed, supremely imaginative and butterfly-inducing epic fantasy love story. It’s a testament to how talented authors actually are when they are able to cross genres and not only that, but

Five fairydust coated stars!
Fantasy romance heavy on sugar and spice and everything nice! I've never read fantasy romance with such a comedic twist (in the best sense of the word). I was snickering and laughing throughout the entire book, including a happy sigh at the end. The Fae King's Curse felt like a trip into Fairyland...and for someone who grew up on Enid Blyton's stories (think The Faraway Tree), it definitely strikes a reminiscent chord.

4.5 Stars - Fantasy Romance

I enjoyed this book so much!! I thought seeing the two main character as friends first and then grow into lovers was so perfect. I love Kirian so much and I love that Quinn accepts him for everything he is.

This was such a sweet fantasy romance where both characters are fighting against everyone else.

Honestly, I'd forgotten all about this book until I saw it randomly on either tiktok or instagram. Once I saw something about it and looked it up, I remembered seeing it when it first came out. It's been on my TBR list for ages. But I'll confess, I've burned myself out on paranormal books. I have to be in the right mood for them now.

But when this one came up recently, I decided to give it a try. Ok, that's a lie. It was actually book 4 that I saw that looked really good and when I read the blur
Author, Jamie Schlosser's THE FAE KING'S CURSE is an addictive beginning to what I'm guessing must be one heck of a series!

- Fated Mates.
- Fluffy romance in an enthralling world.
- FMC and MC I love!
- Side characters who keep the book engaging from start to finish.
- Sweet, sweet, sweet! ✨

Quinn is a female lead you can not help but like. She doesn't fit the bill for a naive character but neither is she a snarky minx.

But the author somehow manages to make a normal & rational Quinn the "it" characte

Kirian is sex on a stick hot and his personality and all alpha ways had me melting. And just when I didn't think I could fall any harder for him, he kidnaps Quinn to make her his and I fall even harder! he is MAGNIFICENT! And Quinn is AWESOME! The way her frec

3.5 stars!

This was a super sweet. It's friends-to-lovers slow burn, but the way it's written means it doesn't actually take too long for the romance to come to fruition. That's always a plus in my book, since admittedly I don't have a lot of patience and lose interest quickly when the slow burn is a little too slow.

There's definitely a lot going on. A whole world full of mystical, magical creatures (honorable mention to the bloody adorable gnomes), Kirian and Quinn navigating their blossoming
3.5 and I’m rounding to 4 cause I liked it!

This was very cute!!! I really enjoyed the premise of friends from different worlds that blossom into being so much more but also have been more the entire time. It was a nice introduction to this world - which has an interesting set up.

Wow! After loving Between Dawn and Dusk, and longing for the next installment, this did not disappoint!

I was completely wrapped up in Kirian, Quinn, the curse and their love. I loved the idea of the gated mate, and bringing in an "outsider" and standing up for believers and love.

I'm ready for more!
