Publisher's Summary

King Randor has been defeated. Queen Alassa has taken her throne. The Kingdom of Zangaria can look forward to a new age of peace and prosperity. But their victory came at a terrible price. A moment before his death, King Randor hit Emily with a powerful curse.

She's lost her magic. She's losing her mind. She may soon lose her life.

As rumors start to spread, as her enemies start to gather, Emily searches desperately for the key to unlock the curse before it is too late. But the only hope seems to rest with House Fellini, an enigmatic family of magicians. Crippled, powerless, helpless, Emily places her life in their hands. If they can't help her, no one can.

But House Fellini has its secrets. As the family struggles to undo the curse before it's too late, Emily is drawn into a decades-old mystery that threatens to destroy the family, shatter her life...and smash the entire world beyond all hope of repair.

Not the best book of the series.

Probably the worst. Clearly Emily is depressed in this book. It is just depressingly depressing. To paraphrase a movie. "this book went full depressed, full emo, never go full depressed, full emo"

Audible's rating is:
1 Star is "not for me"
2 Stars "it is okay"
3 Stars "pretty good"
4 Stars "it's great"
5 Stars "I love it"

How I see the stars.
A one star book could be a very dry topic, story,crude or someone preaching down to the reader. I generally don't have 1 star books. I will just return them and go my own way. My last 3 were from the same series, I had hit a very dry spot in my listening.

A 2 star story, would be something that was phoned in by a writer that typically has done much better work. I have a couple of reviews from authors that just seemed to phone it in, one most recently from an author that decided to mix current politics into his novel. If I wanted that, I would just watch the news.

A 3 star review is where I really start. It means I enjoyed the book. That I did not have a hard time following it (I have lost alot of my conversational hearing). That the story kept to a plot, the characters were not static, and the world built was plausable.

A 4 star review is something that I really enjoyed. It puts the author on my map to keep an eye out for. I go through 12-15 books a month. (audible is my primary source of entertainment. ) I will search for the author's works regularly, and seek out their stories for future purchases.

A 5 star review, These are not as rare as one would think. These are the books where the characters grow, learn, act according to their nature. Where the world is not only plausible but believable. Where there are economic systems, businesses, rules of law that make sense. Where the story is woven is progressed and told with caring and dedication. These are books, series, authors and narrators that bring it all in a package.

So, when reading my reviews, if anyone does, that is how I judge the books.

Whining

though I've enjoyed most of the books in this series. I felt I was listening to a whining child the entire book. I am looking forward to the next book in hopes it is as entertaining as previous books.

Love, Love, Love this Series

A downtrodden girls from earth winds up in a magical world. She discovered she too has magic there and that is where the story starts…

This series is so well written I can’t help but listen to it over and over again.

Another Great SIM Book

Good mystery story. Answers questions presented several book before. I really liked it.

I hope the series continues long into the future. It is the most intelligent fantasy series I have ever read.

hmm. interesting angle

I like hearing about her mental health battle but the story definitely had plot armor.
She had a severe depression and the boredom in listening almost mirrors the same (surface level) mental loop in real life. perhaps a variety in vocabulary would have helped in this part. Additionally, Part of her time was spent with a hint paranoia and part of me thought it was possibly a ghost. Was the baddie actually watching her? Also, how did Caleb happen to be around at the exact right time. also she defeated the baddie so quickly that I had to listen again. I'm still a bit lost as to how Randor cast the curse. Maybe that will be addressed later. Then she decided to start the school instead of her apprenticeship. I guess the end just felt rushed.
Also, did the baddie have anything to do with Emily getting into the manor? Was he a part of some sort of master plan or did he just see an opportunity to seize knowledge?
Overall, a mixed bag. I wouldn't read it again but eh it was a good listen. Tavia is pretty good at her job.

Cursed - Book 17, still a fan!

I really enjoyed this story- book 17. Having magic is not what makes Emily powerful. Emily is powerful because of her work ethic, courage, and willingness to not give up. Her magic is a direct result of all those things. How many people could lose what is thought to define them? How many would work hard and fight to regain? This book is an example of the challenges we face, how do we deal with them. Still a fan!

Love the series but

I love the series but this book was slow for me. If you could take the first few chapter and the last few chapter it a great book. Problem is you have to much in between that is so repetitive.

Absolutely amazing

I am in love with this book series and I am waiting with overwhelming excitement for the next book on audible to come out! This is definitely one of the best book series I've ever heard. The narrator does a fantastic job in the plot is absolutely amazing. With Egypt book I found myself getting deeper and deeper into the world.

I have a disability that makes reading extremely hard and I depend on programs like audible and talk to text ect.

I am completely in love with the storyline and I can't wait for the next one! It's been a few months since book 17 was released and I have my fingers crossed that they will complete the last two books on audible.

Underwhelmed me

Instead of writing lots of things in one book the series tends now to focus on fewer things a reiterating them over and over. Also the telling is stereotypical.
