I wasn’t prepared for what this book was about to deliver. I wasn’t ready for the ride that KK Allen just put me on. And now that I’ve finished, I’m still sitting in awe as I try to figure out where to go from here.

KK Allen has delivered a world of magic and enchantment unparalleled by any other. Her words will envelope you and drive deep within as you become part of the world she created.

I cannot wait to see where she takes us as this trilogy conti

What a unique, enchanting (ha!), thrilling story about a girl who thinks she’s cursed and a small town filled with secrets! I was hooked from the prologue and literally devoured every page. A wonderful introduction to a brand new world, combining elements of different mythologies with just a tinge of magic. A wonderful balance between spirituality and natural powers.

“You read this entire book in a day, Harloe? Really?”

I’ve been a diehard K.K. Allen fan for years. Her talent for writing riveting romances is truly special and always brings me back for more. But her ability to write fantasy? Holy cannoli, I cannot even cope with the epicness that I just finished reading.
Cursed is a stunning journey to behold. From the character development to the world building, this author once again has left me reeling in wonder. I devoured this

This book blew me away! I had no idea KK Allen was such a brilliant fantasy author! I mean, I knew she wrote great contemporary romance... (Don't miss that!)

If you are a lover of fantasy and Greek mythology, Cursed is your book. This is the story of Kat who believes she has an ordinary life, until a tragedy occurs that changes her life forever. About to turn 18 years old, she is forced to move with her grandmother (who is a mystery and Kay doesn’t meet her) to a small coastal town known as Apollo Beach. There she will discover that her last name has a lot of weight in the town, which leaves her in everyone's sights. With an introverted and reserved ...more

This was an okay read, but it felt more geared toward high school students or young adults:
- simple story line
- sex or sexual tension = none (only a couple kisses)
- mild language
It's been a number of years since I was in that demographic group, so this wasn't the best fit for me. Still, the writing was decent and the story was somewhat interesting. It could have used more physical descriptions though. I did manage to finish it (with some light skimming at times). It was such an easy read,

Note: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Sabrina The Teenage Witch meets Charmed, meets a lot of other fantasy shows that I don't have the strength to remember right now.

But you know when those tv shows are felt in these novels, then you know I will love those novels. And that's what KK Allen made me feel: on cloud 9 after reading this novel.

Seems, lately I've been having a lot of good luck with my ARC reading, so so so glad KK Allen's Cursed made the list.

DNF at 29%

My first DNF of 2021. Shelving for now because there are just too many good books in my TBR and unfortunately I couldn’t get into this one. The dialogue wasn’t realistic and the writing wasn’t for me. Maybe I can revisit this in the future.

Contemporary fantasy romance is the perfect way to describe this book. It sets up the world KK Allen created so well. I’m really interested in the rest of the series. I’m not sure who is the hero yet in this book but I’m intrigued!

Cursed is the first book in KK Allen’s new series the Enchanted Gods Trilogy. I am a fan of this author as she writes beautiful stories and creates wonderful characters that capture your heart. I am not a fantasy reader but I was totally engrossed and I couldn’t put this book down. KK drew me into the magical world of the Enchanted and I lost myself to this stunning story.

I hadn’t ventured in the fantasy genre in a very long while, but I’ll read anything K.K. Allen writes, so I entered the Enchanted Gods Series with lots of excitement. Cursed was an interesting novel and only the beginning of a very bewitching world! With a mythology inspired setting, this story was fascinating!

Fantasy at it's best!!! What an amazing start to the series I love this book from beginning to end, I couldn't stop reading and now I need book two asap because the ending left me wanting so much more.

This book is full of mystery, secrets, greek myths and self discovery.

When Katrina Summers comes to Apollo Beach to live with his grandmother, she finds herself lost and confused. Her life is just a turmoil of emotions after her mother died in a tragic accident. Little by little she realises that

I've always loved K.K. Allen’s contemporary romance stories. She's wonderful at bringing her characters to life and pulling you into the story. Her foray into fantasy with the Enchanted Gods trilogy is no different. This story is captivating, pulling you in from the first page. You can't help but like Katrina, and root for her as she faces situations out of her control in a brand new world, combining elements of mythologies and fantasy interspersed with magic.

This needs more stars!!! KK Allen was nervous to bring this series to fruition because it’s not something we are used to seeing from her, but what she doesn’t see is that her talent will make a fan out of the reader that is most resistant to change!

This is the first book in a trilogy and it does exactly what it’s supposed to do, it introduces us to it characters, it gives us a little history and then it grabs hold and won’t let you go. It is going to leave you with a cliffhanger, but it was don

I have read a few contemporary books by this author but when I found out that she was going to be coming out with a book that was fantasy/mythology I knew that I had to read it. This was completely different from her other books.
Kat’s life had been completely flipped upside down and all she wants to do is find the answers as to why. All the twists and turns that happened you can’t tell what’s going to happen it leaves you completely engaged in the story wanting to know how it finishes.

I know this book doesn't like the terms "witch" but man did it give me Sabrina the Teenage Witch vibes with a side of modern greek mythology. This took me like 4 hours to read? BLEW through it. The story was so refreshing to hear and a new take on greek mythology and I can't wait for the next book.

Some nights, I feel like I’m trapped in a bottle, rattling around, hoping it will tip over and crack, just so I can steal a sip of air from the outside world.

Katrina Summer has never fit in. After her mother tragically passes away, she moves in with her grandmother that’s she’s never met. While in her new home, she begins having visions and unexplained things begin to happen to her. But weird things always happen to her so it’s nothing new. Thinking she finally has a chance to fit in, she finds
