Never trust a pretty face. My grandma taught me that. She warned me about the Fair Folk but I never believed her…until I was kidnapped by one. And damn, he is pretty. 
But Fin was sent to bring me to his King, and if I want to survive the Otherworld, I have no choice but to trust him – for now. 
Oh, and did I mention my sexy best friend is hunting me? I should’ve listened to Gran.

Cursed Rebel review banner (1)

I enjoyed Cursed Rebel a lot; it was an action-packed foray into the world of faerie; one that I really found ever so entertaining.
This being my first book by this particular author I wasn’t quite sure what to expect so I’m pleased to say that I easily managed to lose myself in the rich otherworldly landscape portrayed here so vividly.
The excellent world building was a huge positive for “Cursed Rebel” the author has managed quite splendidly to build and describe this alternate backdrop in such vivid detail that I could quite easily picture in my head this colourful terrain we have been introduced to here.
The story centres on Fin and Lucy and the events that unfold after he kidnaps her and transports her to Faerie, where he is under a compulsion to deliver Lucy to the king.
There are also other players underfoot; one especially that has been keeping a big secret from Lucy.
So, Not knowing quite who to trust, but needing her guides as she won’t last one minute alone in this beautiful but brutal land Lucy tries to make the best of her current situation.
So why not a higher rating from me: look I really did find this a delightful read but I did have some slight issues with the beginning and the end of this story.
This for me affected my final rating.
Don’t mistake me this was still a solid experience but I did find the beginning here slightly rushed, I felt there wasn’t much build up to the actual main event.
There was just no backstory or building up of Lucy’s everyday life before she finds herself in faerie, I felt we just skimmed the surface and didn’t really get a sense of her and her tribe and I did feel this was a slightly missed opportunity.
I would have liked to have delved deeper into Lucy’s life pre Fin.
I also felt the ending here was slightly rushed: like something was ultimately missing from the final recipe.
Thankfully I had no issues elsewhere with the rest of this story, the rest of this was grand and did manage to pull me in, captivating my imagination and retaining my interest very easily.
so despite the above, this was for me still a great entertaining read that I am happy to give a thumbs up to.
Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC of “Cursed Rebel” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
