Blurb (from Goodreads):
Sixteeen-year-old Meredith is fed-up with her feuding family and feeling invisible at school – not to mention the witch magic that shoots out of her fingernails when she’s stressed. Then sweet, sensitive Jack comes into her life and she falls for him hard. The only problem is that he is periodically possessed by a destructive centuries-old curse. Meredith has lost her heart, but will she also lose her life? Or in true fairytale tradition, can true love’s kiss save the day?
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“The boy is the prince. His name is Jack. In many ways, he is the victim of the story. He is also the monster.”
This was a YA paranormal story about a curse that only one girl could break.
Merry was an okay character and it was brave of her to try and break the curse, even though she didn’t believe her witchcraft was strong enough to do it.
The storyline in this was about an old curse created by a wizard called Gwydion, which was causing people to turn up dead at the hands of an immortal prince. Merry and her brother Leo did their best to break the curse though, even when the odds were stacked against them. The pace in this was quite slow though, and the book did drag a bit because of it. There also wasn’t as much romance as I was expecting from the blurb.
The ending to this was okay, and tied things up pretty well.
