Book Review: Ever After

Title: Ever After (Cursed #1)

Author: Odessa Gillespie Black



Fans of Twilight are listening to this!

Her dreams weren’t dreams. They were memories.

In order to fully inherit a millionaire’s fortune, Allie Knowles must survive a month on her property – easier said than done when the enormous house is haunted by a violent ghost who claims to know Allie. But the true mystery lies with Cole Kinsley, the handsome groundskeeper.

Cole and Allie have never met, though he’s been driving her wild in her dreams for years. Yet now, every effort to get closer to him pushes him further away.

Cole has only ever loved one soul, and that love has endured for centuries. Now, that soul rests within Allie’s body, and it takes everything in his power not to confess the truth. For her presence has put them both in mortal danger.

Racing against the clock, Allie will have to break the ghost’s curse – or history will be doomed to repeat itself.

My Review

5/5 Stars

When I first saw this book, the cover mixed with the title, I had the impression that it was a fairytale like book. The summary was intriguing so I requested a copy. I was not let down. This was a fantastic urban fantasy that started off so regular and went crazy very quickly. It has everything to make for a great story: romance, suspense, intrigue, action, and mystery.

Allie has dreams of a strange woman, a woman warning her away from something of hers, but Allie chooses to ignore them until one day, she inherits a stranger’s fortune. The catch? She must live on the property for 2 weeks to claim the inheritance or else it goes to charity. The bigger catch? The boy from her dreams is there.

Mixed with the smooth narration of Shaina Summerville, this was all around a great read/listen. Definitely check this one out if you like…well…any genre really!

This book was given to me for free at my request, and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
