“The Curse” starts in the most intriguing way that the reader can’t attempt to put down the book once they start the first chapter. Even before going deeper into the book, I knew the story would be exciting and fun to read. The first thing that made me love this book is the first person narration. I love how the narrator, Zylan explained the events, taking the reader through every storyline in the most pleasant way possible. The first chapter starts with an apparent raid from an intruder. The narrator tells of how they were catching up with her the mother when they were interrupted by a knock on the door. Petrified, the mother told the narrator to go wake her father up as they did not know what the intruder was up to. Reading this brought a feeling of a little fright and suspense. It’s how the narrator gave the story. I could literally feel a chill run down my spine as I read on to understand what this uninvited guest wanted. I got a little teary as the narrator watched the mother bleed after the attacker had got to her.
The other amazing thing I loved about this book was the dating of events in the first chapter. The first story was dated August 14, 1468, and the second story in the chapter was dated September 20, 2011. Isn’t amazing how the author fixed the dates and made the story flow? The story of Zylan is filled with action, suspense, adventure, mystery, and perplexing occurrences. Zylan Cain’s mind was a puzzle itself. It was filled with illusions and eccentric thoughts which made her an exciting character to read about. The plot twist where Zylan Cain was made to stay around Peter Pan, despite her initially believing that Peter Pan caused the demise of her parents was one of the highlights of the book. Here is a character who wants nothing to do with the other because she thinks Peter is not good, but circumstances force her to be around her parents alleged killer. Being around Peter Pan confused Zylan to the point of believing he was not her parents killer. So, who really killed Dylan’s parents? I must admit I did not see that coming. That was a good twist in the book as it caught the reader off guard and made the story more interesting. I loved the suspense in the book before the killer was revealed.
This book should be in everyone’s to-be-read list as it is both entertaining to read and has a thrilling plot. Imagine living on an island like that Zylan lived on with your friends. The experience is both fun and extreme. I would sell my soul to experience just a fraction of what Zylan and her friends underwent and encountered. The author is good with words and was able to capture the reader’s interest throughout the book. The stories are nothing but amusing and anyone regardless of age will enjoy reading the book.
