Title: The Curse Giver
Author: Dora Machado
Published: 2013 by Twilight Times Books
Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Fiction
I did a partial review of this book a while back here. Life got busy, but I finally got around to finishing it!
I love when the main female protagonist has strong character. She knows what she wants, she’s been through a lot, but yet she still pulls through. Lusielle was definitely that kind of protagonist. She put up with an abusive husband, was almost executed, and tries to help Bren stop the curse that was put on him and his family. It’s just refreshing to see a confident woman, who while in love with someone, doesn’t lose herself, you know what I mean? Especially seeing that she is baseborn (lower class) and a woman, she still holds her own against men. It’s just nice to see.
One of my favorite quotes from the book was, “The difference between doom and grace is hope.” (p.296)
Anyways, the author, Dora Machado, is a great writer. Very talented. And since I pretty much reviewed the story in my previous post (as much info as I want to give away), I’ll just say that it was a very well written book, and I enjoyed it a lot.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
