Carina Valdis was accidentally cursed while trying to help her hot neighbor, Rodion Czernovitch.Now they have to work together to fulfill three quests to stop the curse from killing her.
This book was ok. Rodion and Carina have been hot on each other for a while but they haven’t made a move because Carina is Daria, Rodion’s sister, best friend. But being cursed makes them realize how much they feel for each other and take the chance on each other. I didn’t mind their instant love relationship, it was other issues that kind of ruined this book for me.
I think my problem with this book is that the story wasn’t very clear. What Rodion is wasn’t explained very well. He is some kind of sorcerer but his sister is a rusalka (water fae) and I don’t understand the dynamics behind it, which really bothers me. Basically I struggled to understand this new world and how it impacted these two characters and Nocturne Falls.
I did like Carina. She was a norn which is a type of fortune teller/ soothsayer, which I found fascinating and wish we had seen more of her abilities. Her magical bag was very interesting and I want one because I never have enough room in my purse (think Mary Poppins carpet bag or Hermione’s magical handbag).
Overall, this was just ok. It definitely needed to be longer just to explain more about the characters and the worlds they come from.
