If you haven’t jumped into Azzy’s sinister world of hybrid beings, two-forms, magic and sadistic lords you’re really missing out on an excellent dark fantasy.

Book two picks up close to where the last one left off. I debated rereading Marrow Charm just in case I forgot something, but Jacques does such a good job of bringing in the previous book and tying it into this new gripping plot that I didn’t need to. I did not expect any of what occurred to be in this novel and I freaking loved it.

I am very excited to read this book. Marrow Charm was one of the best books I read last year.

We continue with Azzy on her journey to find her brother. But she’s at The House of Seven Smiles while she works out a plan. There she learns that the people surrounding her want the best for her. Azzy has untold abilities that she needs to learn to access. With proper training, she could go far in life. We also get the point of view of Eleanor, who has been forced to work in a pleasure house. She somehow has her memory intact, and that will help her for the road ahead.

This one came to me 4 day

Amazing book! The world is so well done and the characters so interesting you are just captivated from chapter one. I enjoyed the first book in this series but this sequel was far superior.

The plot was so compelling and heartbreaking you never knew what was going to happen next. The villains are actually authentic and not cartoonish like most I have read lately.

I would have preferred the romance to advance a little more in this book but I'm hoping we get to see more in book 3. Can't wait to rea

Really enjoyed this! The story began right where Marrow Charm left off. I enjoyed the melancholy atmosphere of Avergard, everyone lives on edge and feels slightly unhinged. Azzy's POV was very illuminating because we learn what her ability means, more about Lord Wallach, the gates and the "new" world overall.
At first, I was uncertain about Eleanor's POV, but it was absolutely amazing and I love how the 2 halves of the story came together and collided at the end. The end was very good, but absol

Opinions: Skin Curse is the exact reason why I love sequels. Anticipation builds for weeks before publication and when the special day comes, you're on the edge of your seat for hours, scanning each page and devouring every sentence. Jacques provided this excitement and celebration for many readers, including myself. Even with my TBR stacking higher than my shoulders, I couldn't resist prioritizing Skin Curse, and boy was it worth
