Book One: Cursed - Review
Brought together by accident, bound by fate—and magic.
Love works its charm over Bruno DiCesare and Melina Weaver during his transformation from beast to man. But love likewise blinds them to the secrets each holds. Bruno thinks his secret will devastate Melina. Melina’s afraid Bruno will hate her for what she’s become. Neither guess the greatest danger lurks outside their door—and could force them to choose between love and life itself.
At the end of cursed I felt like there was a little something missing. A bit of drama and excitement that hadn't happened. Well, Cate Masters just saved it up and put in into book two, Charmed. As Bruno goes through the transformation back to a man, Melina begins to do some research on his condition and look through his vast library of books. What she stumbles upon opens a door full of trouble.
You may have noticed that I labeled this as a Paranormal Romance and an Urban Fantasy. The story continues to explore Bruno and Melina as they try to figure out where their relationship is going, but this section of the story really concentrated on the magic and myth of the world. Ancient magics and warring factions appear and it seems like all hell is going to break loose. We learn more about DaVinci's secrets and Melina has a surprising discovery about herself.
Then it stops!!! Yes, a bit of a cliffhanger and now I must find out when book three is going to be released. I love where Cate is taking these characters and I really want to know where they end up.
