The Deschanel curse, dormant for a decade, has returned with a vengeance.
Seers across the family are coming together, hopeful the Deschanel Magi Collective can solve this malediction that has plagued the family for nearly two centuries. But how do you combat the blood oath of a grieving mother?
As the body count rises, it becomes apparent that strength, love, and ancient power provide no protection from destiny's cruel hand.

I got this book via audiobook boom. This is a story of tragedies that happens in life but the curse is so ingrained in the family history that the three sisters believe in its validity. Even though two of the three sisters are extremely smart they still allow the curse to hold sway over them. The narration was superb. even when I wanted to say hey people wake up we all live our lives with the threat of death hanging over our heads. No one knows when they will die. Even those who attempt suicide don't know if they will die or not. But the story overall was well written and well performed.
Think of the Deschanel curse as an invisible movie monster. It's lurking out there, sharpening its claws, and you know it's getting ready to start its killing spree. Who is going to survive? DUH DA DUH DA... If you enjoy those movies, you'll love this book.
There were some scenes where two women were arguing. One was obviously distraught, but Ms. Kane's reading struck me as downright histrionic. I also think her New Orleans accents were not quite on the money. In her defense, there is a huge cast of characters in this book. I can't imagine trying to come up with that many different voices!
It's an excellent case study of what happens to people who are continually under threat from an unknown danger for long periods of time. The family members have developed a wide, fascinating variety of coping mechanisms. A psychologist would have a field day analyzing them. Unfortunately, when the "Deschanel curse" strikes, no one seems immune.
I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest opinion.
