First of all, I want to thank Netgalley for giving me the chance to read this short preview of A Vow so Bold and Deadly by Brigid Kemmerer. From the first words of A Curse so Dark and Lonely – “There is blood under my fingernails. I wonder how many people I’ve killed this time.”- I have been completely obsessed with this series. I finished both of the previous books in a day, and I fell in love with the characters and storyline, which is why I’m so grateful to have a little sneak-peak of the newest book which has an expected publication on January 12th, 2021.
A Heart so Fierce and Broken is the second book in the Cursebreakers series and follows A Curse so Dark and Lonely. This book started off a little slow for my liking, but it did pick up with the plotline, and I loved it. Unlike the last book, Harper and Rhen aren’t present for most of this one. The point of view is from Lia Mara, daughter of Karis Luran, and Grey, who we discover is heir to the throne of Emberfall.
As a beauty and the beast retelling, this story followed that basic structure with a few different twists!
