Cursed (The Cursed Magic Series Book 1) by Casey Odell
The night Claire Tanith’s small village is attacked, her mother sends her alone into the cursed forest, the one she’d been forbidden to enter all her life with these mysterious words: ‘They will protect you.’
On the run from her attackers, she soon finds the forest is not as abandoned as she’d once thought.
Beautiful and elegant, the elves seem to be everything the legends said they would be. But legends sometimes forget the true history of things and Claire’s eyes are soon opened to a world she never knew. One that has been kept from her for most of her life. All Claire wants to do is return home and start looking for her mother, the only family she ever had. But the elves have different plans. The mysterious mark that appeared on her arm isn’t a curse, at least not to them anyway, and before she knows it, she is whisked away on a mission she never agreed to, unless they help her in return.
Now she is stuck on an adventure with the perverted elf, Aeron, and one with an attitude, Farron. But there is more to this adventure than she’d ever hoped for.
The Cursed Magic Series by Casey Odell has been one of my favorite fantasy series for a while now. It is filled with elves, magic, humor, romance, and adventure. I love everything about it. There are times I want to strangle Claire, the female protagonist, for her choices, but her choices are great at representing her character and following the story-line. It is a more primitive fantasy setting with a heart melting, conflicted romance blooming. I'm ecstatic it's not an "insta-love" cliche and was well developed. The witty bantering is actually witty and many of the scenes have a fun atmosphere. I am absolutely, head over heels in love with Farron! As I've already read book 2, I'll just note that it is ten times better than the first and I'm crazy over this installment. A well deserved 5 stars!
