Publisher's Summary

What are you waiting for? NA paranormal fantasy at its best by international best-selling author Tara Brown.

Someone is drugging the fairest of them all and hurting them in the dark corners of the forests around Port Mackenzie - shrouding the town in mystery and darkness. But nothing is as it seems. In the dark corners of the small town, there is also a light, a cure to what ails the sick. But everything comes at a cost, a price that must be paid. Aimee James discovers that cost the moment she dies. She discovers there are worse things than dying. She finds herself cursed. Discover how the Devil's Roses all starts because in the end it is the beginning that chooses who we will become and what side we will take.

Note from the author - This is the newly edited version. It won't ever be perfect because this is where I started; this was my first book. I don't even recognize the style of writing anymore, I have changed so much. So it is nice for me to be able to look at this and see where I started, how much I have grown as an author. We have gotten it as close to perfect as we can without ruining the experience of a debut novel by me, Tara Brown. Hope you enjoy, and thank you so much for listening to my beginning.

Teenage love story, wrong man, gone wrong...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not for me. In the first line of the book description it says a "NA paranormal fantasy"..Ok, didn't really know that NA was New Adult. What? I thought that was Young Adult? Well I'm an old adult and the book rambles on about teenage feelings, and popular vs. nerd, and I've always loved him, oh yeah and someone is a serial rapist and there are some really incompetent immortals hanging around.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The story in the description is very interesting. This is not that story. This story is about a teenage girl who made some bad decisions and has even worse luck.

Have you listened to any of Julie McKay’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Narration was good

Did Cursed inspire you to do anything?

Never get a "NA paranormal fantasy" again

Good book if you can be patient enough to wait for some"actual "excitement which finally comes about the 12th chapter.The narrator was really good and gave each character their individual personalities.

Angst filled read

This is a typical Angst filled read and even knowing her touch is deadly our lead does the unthinkable but apparently its alright because its someone else's fault and she will never do it again and now she is trying to make her "affliction" do good . . .

Narrator does a reasonable job considering what she has to work with. The story line has some merit but is not in my opinion handled that well by the author.

some will no doubt love this tale
