Long ago, the Seven prophesied that a great darkness would befall the world. The order of paladins who have kept that final prophecy are now seeing some of the harbingers that were foretold. It's time for the Last Prophet to arise, the only hope of averting the darkness and saving the world.

This is one of those sprawling fantasy epics with lots going on, lots of point of view characters, a sprawling fantasy world, and complex systems of magic and religion. The author did a good job of differentiating all of the characters and making me care about them (some more than others, of course). I didn't feel that the ending was really the ending; this is really just one big book divided into three, I think. At any rate, I dove straight into the next one. I don't love the audiobook narrator, but he's tolerable. Recommended for those who like a big chonky epic fantasy.… (més)

Now, when I started this book I didn't know there was going to be a sequel. So, when it ended in the middle of the story I was a little frustrated. That might have affected my rating a bit. But if you go in knowing there is a sequel you will not suffer the same fate. And until the abrupt ending I was enjoying the story. I like fantasy and magic and this book has lots. I think Marlow, the main character, is well done. She is bitter, but not so bitter that you can't like her, she can take care of herself but has some cool friends to help her out, she is confident enough in herself to be different, but is not obnoxious. The story is full of intrigue, and secrets and magic and lies. There is romance too. Which usually I can do without. But here it fits into the story without taking it over. As I read, the story picked up speed and I did get wound up in it. I enjoyed watching all the threads start to come together. I wanted to get back to it to see how Marlow would work it all out. It is a fun, rather quick read. I will probably read the second one because I am involved with the characters now. And I might seek out more by Katy Rose Pool in the future.… (més)

Garden of the Cursed by Katy Rose Pearl
Book #1 in the series by the same name. YA fantasy with romance.
Marlow Briggs desperately wants to find her mother who disappeared a year ago. When Adrius Falcresrt bargains to hire her to break a curse, she agrees knowing she will be able to search for clues to find her mother in the Evergarden society. Though posing as his once-again lover after he spurned her is not how she expected to be walking among the elite again. Someone else knows why she’s there and about the curse on Adrius and consequences of talking to the wrong person could be deadly for them both.

Intriguing magic setup where the magic and curses are stored or held on cards. The relationship between Marlow and Adrius is convoluted as it’s revealed and covered with lies. The deadly and dangerous underworld is mixed in with high society back rooms where secrets are traded.
Marlow refers to herself as a teenager in at least one scene, yet the situations and text reads older. Without those statements or it stated everywhere as “YA”, I would have thought mid 20’s.
A slow start that ramps up to compelling and ends with questions yet to be answered. A duology that does not end here.
4.5

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. Opinions are my own.

This was an amazing first look that didn't disappoint with the rest of the book! It opens on a magical speakeasy with (what I imagine to be) magical tarot cards and skyrockets off from there! I love the prickly main character who is trying to unraveller a mystery greater than herself that takes her back into the high society life she grew up in but suddenly had to leave. From the first meeting of the characters I felt like they had real history, even going past what we were told about in the book. They felt real, which is a huge accomplishment for the author! It was a lot of fun working out the different characters motivations and how they all interlocked with the main character! I am desperate to get my hands on the next book! The ending just about killed me. I cannot wait an entire year to see a certain relationship play out! I was pleasantly surprised with this book and eagerly wait for the sequel!… (més)
