Blood Curse By Kat Flannery
This was my first book to read about gypsies and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed reading it. I like how Ms Flannery explained the folklore of the gypsies and I really liked her characters.
The main character Pril had a sister that was very powerful with gypsy magic and before she was killed she cursed the Monroe family. All of their newborn baby girls would die soon after taking their fist breath. Now the Monroe’s are out for revenge and are killing all the female children of the Peddlers. Pril is raising her sister’s daughter who is braded and know one knows but Pril and she hides her by dressing her like a boy. One of Pril’s brothers despises Pril because he and his wife have had their baby girls killed by the Monroe’s.
The Monroe’s have hired a man by the name of Kade to find the gypsy child and kill her, but the Peddler’s catch him and hold him hostage. But something kindles between Pril and Kade a slow growing love. You will have surprising revelations and betrayal.
Over all I highly recommend this book it is a good read that keeps you guessing and wondering from beginning to end!
