Augustus walks alone, his heart encased in an impenetrable despair, like most nights since his curse began, nearly three centuries ago. He trolls the stone walls of En Tutum, a luxurious rustic tourist attraction that doubles as his prison, a place he is forbidden to leave. Suddenly he hears a faint whisper, “Mother,” as a jeep pulls into the property, and something inside ...more

It starts in the middle, but completes the tale so perfectly by the end. I really enjoyed this book. It's rich in description and at times supremely poetic. Stone captures Augustus's torment well. It made his bouts of happiness joyful. Honestly, I found myself smiling and laughing out loud to myself. Give it a chance, its the perfect escape. And I need to know more about Jackson! ...more

Overall, I really enjoyed the plot line as it is very unique! The characters are intriguing, and I loved how Selina is one of those girls who doesn’t care if she fits in to societal norms, as it made her someone I could really relate to. At first the start of the story confused me and made me feel like I had been plopped into the middle of a plot line, but now I see that the timeline was more strategic. By the time I got to the end of the book it all made sense, and now I’m dying to know more!!

Good read

I enjoyed this book.

The beginning confused me once she got to the estate because everything happened so fast but it was all explained later.
So Saline is an introvert who has the privilege of being the adopted daughter of celebrities and a sister to a social media influencer. She hated the attention that comes with it so she stays away from media - no pictures please.
She is an avid outdoors woman thanks to her dad and enjoys the peace that nature provides.
Her dad hijacks her solo tri

Luna Stone’s “The Curse of the Nine: Laline’s Ascension,” is quite the original tale that is beautifully written, and an overall pleasure to read.
Selina, the main character, is easily likeable. She grew up with wealth but has a level of humility difficult to find outside of fiction books. As to not give too much away, I will add that she is relatable and easily memorable. Her feelings leak out the page during both subtle and dramatic events in the story.
Meanwhile, Augustus is quite the enigma. S

Fantastic!

I was a bit apprehensive about reading this as I've never really been interested in fantasy... But after reading this book I have to say it was an enjoyable read.

The descriptions were not too long but beautiful and the plot kept me reading.

Will definitely be reading the next installment!

Books were a constant in this author's home growing up. The local library was visited as much as the supermarket. Luna Stone was a child of the Berenstain Bears and Curious George. “Nothing enchants the spirit more than a great story,” Stone wrote in a recent blog. She supposed her love for writing began early too. Stone wrote her first story at age eight entitled, “Tall Like Me.” The twelve-page ...more
