Curse of Kin

Goodreads | Amazon 
Nera is a normal teenage girl living in Ireland-or so she thought. Her world is forever changed when she discovers that she is descended from a long line of witches. To her horror she finds she is the one that is supposed to stop the curse that has taken the life of every girl before her. As if that isn't enough, she must learn to use magic and her trainer is a man named Bones. He is the son of Mari, Queen of the Witches, and a god. It is Bones that has been entrusted to teach her the skills she needs to stay alive, which wouldn't be so bad if he didn't have an uncanny knack for pushing her buttons. Can Nera learn what she needs while staying immune to the charms of the man that gets under her skin at every opportunity?

Ari Harper

Website | Goodreads | Facebook
Ari Harper never wanted to grow up.
To offset the limitations of aging ungracefully, she created her own set of unique worlds where she can be and do whatever she wants.

Gods, witches and demons surround Ari while she spins her magic, doing mainly what they tell her to do. Given a chance, she prefers to work amongst chaos, which is good because she is constantly surrounded by children, all clamoring for attention. Some of them end up in her stories, some of them even get to die grisly deaths or be cast away to another realm.

While the story may just plow on into the paranormal aspect in the beginning, it adopts a steady pave throughout the rest of the book. I love how it had a little bit of witchery, friendships, mystery, suspense, curses and the like. I love, love, LOVE that it was set in Ireland with Irish characters. The only thing that could have made that aspect more awesome was if I could have continually read their voices in my head with an accent. But that is really hard to keep up with. :P I tried, though. It counts. I feel like this book is more for a.. I don't know.. younger audience? The minimal romance and writing style would make it ideal for an MG or lower YA reader. Don't get me wrong, though. It was a highly enjoyable read. 

I liked all of the characters. Nera may have irked me with some of the things she said, but I forgive her. No one is perfect, least of all teenage girls. Trust me, I was one. O.O. We say and do things we regret later. 

I expect to have some relationships developed and find out some secrets about other characters in the next book. (: Looking forward to learning more about their posts. *ahem* Bones, I am talking about you. *glares* 

All in all, great read with action, mystery, and a dash of awesome Irish-folk and... swordplay? ;) Oh ho ho. I see you perked up at the mention of swordplay. You bloodthirsty fiend, you.

So snarky, I love it. ;) 
I had more saved, but they disappeared off my Kindle. What is this devilry! Don't Worry. I gave Kindle a firm talking to. Yes, I named her Kindle...
