Book Review: Purity, by Claire Farrell (2013).

This is the final book in the Cursed series authored by Claire Farrell, and I feel that it closes things quite nicely. With Nathanโ€™s family curse broken, everything is in turmoil, most of all Perdy and Nathanโ€™s relationship. Both of them feeling the loss of the infatuation that comes with the curse, it still knowing there is a natural attraction between the two. The storyline really picks up in this novel and becomes quite fast paced and action really becomes a big part of the novel. There are some gruesome fight scenes involving fangs and fur, which leave the reader … Continue reading Book Review: Purity, by Claire Farrell (2013).

Book Review: Aversity, by Claire Farrell (2012).

There were a lot of questions posed at the end of the last book Clarity. Thankfully, Claire Farrell thought it necessary to fill in holes by producing book #2.5 Adversity.
