Celia Wird shouldn’t possess the ability to transform into a tigress. Her three sisters should never be able to burst into flames, heal wounds, or transform common objects into deadly weapons. And yet they do.
Before they were born, the Wird Sisters were cursed by a spell that was intended to destroy them, not endow them with extraordinary powers. The sisters’ magic is untamed and explosive at best, and time is running out for them to take command.
Vampires have targeted Celia’s sweet, tragically human ex-boyfriend Danny. The sisters rush to his aid, but in order to take down the vamps, first they must face their dark past and break a spell that’s screwing up their powers. Except this curse wasn’t meant to be broken . . . and the witch who cast it isn’t done toying with them yet.
These four sisters all have unusual supernatural powers and in this novella, the reason behind it, actually a curse is delved into but that's just the beginning of the journey these girls will take. Celia is the eldest sister and has a tiger form but her other sisters can do amazing things as well. The power of fire, transformation and healing to name just a few of the simply incredible gifts these girls have. But their lives are blighted and when this story starts, they are about to move but Celia's ex-boyfriend, Danny, needs their help against vampires! It's not something anyone would want to willingly tackle but Celia, Taran, Shayna and Emme Wird are made of sterner stuff and besides someone has to do something before Danny's father ends up dead or worse!
I really enjoyed A Curse Awakened even though as a novella it was rather short. It explains a lot of the background as to just why these girls can do the things they do and as it's not bogged down by senseless romance it actually really works. There's enough action to keep the reader’s attention engaged and the family dynamics make sense. I wish I had read this sooner as it gives valuable insight into the Wird family’s background and so for this reason I would happily recommend reading this book.
