Jayden finds a leather book in his grandmother's secret room that was written in 426 by a shaman. Emily can read the ancient runes, and they learn about their family's curse. If it remains unbroken, the curse will bring tragedy and ruin their lives as it destroyed many of their ancestors' lives for centuries. Can they find the way to break the curse? Could Emily find happiness with her long-lost friend?

A very nice surprise

I was grumbling to myself after some less than satisfying experiences this week - not another 2.5-hour 'bonanza' that leaves you with just a brief beginning where nothing much happens except a 'hot mess' of confusion and then you are left hanging for months for the next installment - I thought, why did I get this? Well, my momentary negativity was TOTALLY unwarranted. This short story is complete (though room left for further adventures). And the pace is very fast and the story beautifully articulated - a lot happens from minute one and the adventure continues to the last minutes of the story.

For such a short book there are a lot of very relatable characters introduced and a multi-generational twist that is so fresh and interesting. If I am going to be picky, I would have liked the resolution to be a bit more fully articulated. The end was a little sudden.

I cannot finish without applauding Ann Tworek's incredible narration. She had me totally absorbed and immersed from minute one.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
