Disclaimer – the author approached me and sent a free ARC digital download of the book in exchange for an honest review.
The curse is a short novella that follows Jina Bazzar’s debut book ‘Heir of Ashes’ and comes before ‘Heir of Doom’ in the Roxanna Fosch Files series. I really enjoyed reading Heir of Ashes and getting to know Roxanne, so I was happy when the author reached out for me to read this short novella and also the second book in the series.
The book is written in first person from the perspective of Roxanne Fosch’s father, Yoncey Fosch (who we discover in Heir of Ashes). Although the book is a short read, it fills in quite a few of the blanks provided in the previous book and is more of a prequel. It explains the deal that Yoncey made and why his life was sacrificed, as well as connecting dots between those mentioned previously.
I’m a big fan of the authors writing style, I find it both captivates me and keeps my interest throughout. I really enjoyed reading ‘The Curse’ and I’m looking forward to beginning ‘Heir of Doom’ and seeing where the story takes Roxanne Fosch as she begins her life properly outside of captivity.
