Interesting characters, magic, and some really good world building are the things that made me love this book. You do not want to read The Cursed Kingdoms series out of order. So if you haven't read book one and two do that first before doing this one.
OK so I had to go back and reread books one and two since it has been a while since I've read them. So the author did a great job with the POVs and you guys know I'm a hard a** about that kind of thing. Emily Gee did a wonderful job. I was never lost and knew what was going on at all times.
The world building was so well done that I could close my eyes and pretty much see everything that each character did. Which was really great, but now I want a movie or TV show!!!
The characters were awesome in The Blood Curse. Each was fully formed and they all had their own voice.
This story was great, fast paced and great for lovers and readers of fantasy. My 11 year old wants to try and read them now since I was oohing through most of it. lol.
The amazing conclusion to the Cursed Kingdom's Trilogy.
Those who drink the water shall thirst for blood. They shall be as wild beasts.
A blood curse is ravaging the Seven Kingdoms. Fugitive Osgaardan prince, Harkeld, is the one person who can destroy it. Guarded by Sentinel mages, pursued by Fithian assassins, he begins the final—and most dangerous—stage of his quest: entering the cursed kingdom of Sault, where drinking even one drop of water means madness and death.
But the mages aren’t the only travellers heading east. Princess Brigitta, abducted by Fithian assassins, is also bound for Sault—unless she can escape. And in close pursuit is her loyal armsman, Karel.
Young orphan, Jaumé, is also headed for Sault—where he will be forced to make decisions that will change the fate of the Seven Kingdoms forever.
