    Main characters Stavros or Stav Charlotte or CharlieType of Kindred bonding Blood Kindred and Sin EaterThe story of Stavros with the indigo eyes auburn hair high cheekbones and strong jaw and the curving lines of ink in a strange shifting pattern around his neck which seem to change if you stare at it too long A Blood Cursed Kindred or Sin EaterCharlie hates Kindred Because of them she lost the closest person to her She will end up falling in love with a Kindred and begging him to have her That was the part I loved but it took a while to happenI can understand the fact that a lot of the series's fans dislike Charlie She has many self issues she sounds very selfish and many times she is lost in her hatred torturing poor StavrosThere is this assignment where Stavros and Charlie are going together to save earth and Charlie keeps talking about being professional and the need for them to be detached from emotionsStavros on the other hand believes in self sacrificing unconditional love and true bonding but he doesn't allow himself to have them because it is his destiny to die youngI have to be honest I really dislike Charlie as well I think she is the most annoying female character of the series so far but I believe it was clever to bond her to Stavros They both had a lousy childhood They were both hated by their parents for different reasons of course as they were considered a burden and unworthy of love Nowadays they are lonely and have decided to die alone until the goddess puts them togetherI have to say this is one of the most emotional books of the Kindred series I loved it

    I will usually only review a book if it is either really good or too awful to remain silent Cursed was one of those books that irritated the living hell out of meI'm a reluctant fan of Evangeline Anderson's There is just something about this series that compels me to continue reading even to the end The recurring theme in this series is damaged nearly broken people who realize they are missing out on life but not until the very end The story could've been better I fell in love with Found but comparing that book to this one would be blasphemy There were several grammatical and spelling errors throughout the book which made it seem unedited There was also the matter of Charlie Charlotte the heroine of this bookCharlie oh CharlieI would've given the book 10 stars if Charlie had jumped off of a cliff somewhere and died while a woman who loved herself and was secure in her body found him and mated with him without any reservations But that's not what happenedCharlie was at once an abrasive and rude female which made it almost impossible for me to relate to her or care for her fate At no point did I see myself as wanting to be her even with the sex scenes Stavros was compelling and warm even though he'd been through a terrible childhood as well He fell in love with Charlie even though she'd shown no redeemable ualities in her character other than her bravery and physical beauty This alone made it unbelievable that Stav would fall in love with her especially since she'd shown him no kindness until literally THE VERY LAST PAGE OF THE BOOK They could've easily ended up together with her staying the mean prickly person she was after all Stavros didn't seem to mind how off putting the woman was so why not? I wouldn't get it but at least it would've been consistent But her character underwent such a drastic and dramatic change in heart in the last chapter that I was immediately offended Am I supposed to believe that the same woman who so meanly insulted the Kindred warrior the ENTIRE book all of a sudden couldn't live without him? I couldn't wrap my head around it and felt as if I'd wasted an entire afternoon reading this book She acted like she was disgusted by him and seemed to enjoy finding fault in everything he did or said so when she finally gave into her previously unmentioned and unseen 'romantic feelings' for him I couldn't enjoy it I was like WTF? I couldn't be happy for them and isn't that the whole point of telling stories?Starvos doesn't get off the hook either Come on dude grow a pair Be a man He should've cussed her out a long time ago for the way she treated him If a woman doesn't treat you with basic human decency walk away And if she doesn't appreciate you for who you are or treasure you the way you deserve? Call it uits That doesn't just apply to women but men too Cuz face it if their roles had been reversed we would've hated the book even if a man would treat his woman like crap on a cracker the whole story We would've demanded that she have self respect no?Maybe the author was rushed because of deadlines or the editor should be fired I don't know the mechanics behind book publishing so I can't say with any authority what happened in order for this to be the final product But when I pick up a book and sit down pouring my time energy and emotions into a story I expect it to deliver heartbreak and triumph and love and struggle but in a way that is believable even if it is fiction And I don't know a single person who would've taken Charlotte back after all the crap she put them through As a female I want to slap her for her blindness and her inner weakness Sure women have insecurities it's a given in our society But goodness if the women portrayed in this series are supposed to be a mirror or reflection of how we women think and behave then somebody needs to call Dr Phil for all women across the country Like call that dude right now I'm still hoping Anderson will write a female character that isn't broken and self destructive If Anderson can put out the kind of material in Found I believe she can do it again so fingers crossed for the next book

    Dear Ms Anderson It is possible to write conflict without making your heroine act like the following StupidignorantflippantchildishindecisiveirrationalPS HIRE AN EDITOROkay now for the reviewThis is the problem I have with EA stories The writer has so much creativity and great ideas but the execution is completely off I was with the heroine for about 43% of the book until view spoilerthey go to their meat locker suite is told they can only be warm when they share body heat and she gets pissy and sleeps on the couch hide spoiler

    25 StarsCommander Stavros is a Sin Eater he can feel the pain of the people around him like it was his own shunned by most other Kindred the cursed are destined to life solitary and short lives unable to take a mate However he soon beings to uestion his ability to take a mate when he meets Charlie a woman who seems to despise not only him but all Kindred and yet he can't help but feel drawn to her When they are both sent on a mission together to save Earth from the Enhanced Ones they are pushed together and not only their safety but the fate of Earth rely on them trusting and loving one another Back to my not so secret love for all things involving sexy aliens especially when those aliens happen to be Kindred I can't help but be addicted to Evangeline Anderson's sexy and yet slightly ridiculous Brides of the Kindred seriesThere was one big problem with this book particular book in the series; the heroine The the book went on the I wanted to reach through my kindle and give her a bitch slap As much as I normally love this series I found Cursed hard to get through due to the Charlie's blind hatred and irrational responses to the adorable and smoking hot Stavros This also made me uestion my judgment of Stavros clearly he could do better and in the end he seemed less like the normal alpha macho Kindred male and of a push over But despite my growing dislike for the couple Anderson still managed to weave through lots of sexual tension between them till even I wanted them to just rip each others clothes off and get it on Not my favourite book in the series the heroine really did spoil it for me although as usual it was a sexy book crackling with chemistry I couldn't get over my dislike for Charlie However I will continue to read this series and can't wait to see what will happen next

    15 stars the heroine was too angry to likeNot a good addition to the series Too much hate and anger in this heroine and it went on for too long The hero was never given a chance to speak for himself and he was secondary to the story and charlotte's hatred Personally I've never liked the trip to the sexual healing resort pretend to be a couple trope in contemporary romance and I liked it even less in space The entire reason why I read these books is because I want to read something new and if it's strange fine I like the resort theme even less in deep space

  6. Sarah Sarah says:

    I really enjoyed this book The story does have a familiar ring to it Kindred and partner has to go on a death defying mission but I really like it and even tho at times I thought thats like another kindred book It didn't ruin the book for me Charlie had huge issue with kindred and Starv thinking his curse will eventually kill him so he resisted Charlie Loved Six and his bride coming into mix Great story and HEA

  7. Carol Carol says:

    I love this series and it never gets old The various Kindred are different enough to stop the stories becoming too formulaic The book is well written and with lots of drama and saving the world from certain doom along with the romance Keep them coming

    I adore the Brides of the Kindred books I've read every one within a week of the release date and will continue to read the next books in this series Having said thatCURSED had a problem I just couldn't get past This book challenged my ability to suspend disbelief Any romance sci fi romance in particular reuires the reader to suspend disbelief in order to get into the story What bothered me about CURSED was the running theme of let's pretend we're just doing this for the job I felt like the heroine was too selfish walking around thinking she could use the hero in whatever way she deemed necessary and never consider his feelings The hero was Kindred not an emotionless android so this left me feeling unsympathetic toward the heroine The hero was so self sacrificing I almost couldn't see him as strong enough to be the hero at all Not all heroes need to be cavemen or alphas but they need the ability to stand up for themselves at some point in the story What finally knocked my rating of this book down from a 4 or 5 to a 3 was the game of just the tip the hero and heroine engaged in toward the end of the book It reinforced the heroine's self centered personality and the hero's doormat tendencies and made me feel like I was reading a scene about two teenagers instead of two fully grown mature adults Just the tip can be hot but this scene reminded me of sixteen year old kids trying to create a line between complete sexual satisfaction and technical virginity which simply doesn't exist I found it unbelievable two mature adults would find it acceptable if the penis was inserted only a certain amount or inserted fully but no thrusting took place Spoiler Alert If there is any amount of penis inside your vagina it counts as sex Own it call it like it is and don't demoralize either one of you by pretending it's not something it obviously is The world building was great and on par with the standard for Evangeline Anderson's books I spotted very few editing errors which I appreciate immensely I found the author's writing techniue and voice familiar yet engaging The cover rocks Despite my dislike for parts of CURSED I look forward to reading stories by this author
