My Review of A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

This book.

Omg this book.

I haven’t fallen so hard for a book in a long time.

I got my copy from Fairyloot, it’s an exclusive edition with a silky ribbon bookmark and has a rose shaped signed bookplate!

I’m sure you’ve all seen the blurb but just in case!

Fall in love, break the curse.

It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.

Nothing has ever been easy for Harper Lacy. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.

Break the curse, save the kingdom.

A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

‘I am always surprised to discover that when the world seems darkest, there exists the greatest opportunity for light.’

No matter what I say I don’t think I will be able to do this book the justice that it deserves!

It was beautiful,

It was poetic,

I want to wail at the utter beauty of this book!

Harper was oh so strong. I loved her strength, tenacity and also her love for everything. She was curious, empowering and I want to be her when I grow up (and live in a castle, no pony though!)

Rhen and Grey. Omg. Just omg. I can’t decide which one I love more. Don’t make me choose, I wont do it!

But I know January 2020 can’t come soon enough!

  1. Ok so TBH I didn’t read your entire review because I haven’t read this book yet and I don’t want to know anything more going into it, but I read your first line and I got SO excited. I can’t wait for April because I’m reading it for the Magical Readathon!
