STAR CURSED has also gotten some really lovely reviews.
Booklist calls it a riveting paranormal-
A 5-star review from Long and Short Reviews: I credit a book with being good when I can’t sleep, eat or do anything without it in my hand and that was the case with Star Cursed…When I am in the market for a witchy read with characters that leap out of the page, I know Jessica Spotswood will deliver. Star Cursed cast a spell on me on the very first page that has lasted long after the final page has been read.
10/10 from The Young Folks: There is an underlying but palpable tension that simmers right below the surface throughout the entire book. It makes it a page-turner…The thing is that I cared about every little thing that happened in this book, whether it was momentous or seemingly inconsequential. Spotswood has that magic in her writing to create a story and characters so unique and real and astounding; it’s impossible to not become absorbed into the Cahill Witches’ world and not feel the hurt when they do.
4.5/5 and Top Shelf rating from Christina at The Book Hookup: Yes, you should be reading this book and this series if you aren’t already. Though, I want to make it perfectly clear that the ending ripped my heart out…Star Cursed was the perfect sequel book– one that built on the overall series arc and only made you more invested in where the plot was going and the personal journey that each of the characters is on.
