Overview

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they're products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, weird…



Celia’s a girl in trouble. Her heart is bound to Aric, but he is a pureblood were who must deny her or risk condemning his species to extinction. And that’s just her love life. She’s also been called to take down a group of demon terrorists looking to overthrow the paranormal world. (No pressure.)



In order to bring them down, Celia must ally herself to Misha, the master vampire who has made no secret of his desire for her.



And if that weren’t enough misfortune for one girl, a clairvoyant’s prediction could destroy Celia and Aric’s love for good. The only way to protect the world from unbridled supernatural terrorism is for Celia to bind herself to her destined mate. And that doesn’t appear to be Aric…

    4.5 Stars

    Just when you think things can’t get any crazier…it does! Cecy pulled every trick out of her hat in this installment and once again leaves you wanting more!
    Cursed by Destiny picks up right where A Cursed Embrace left us, with a whole lot of evil on the loose and a heartbroken Celia. She’s currently living with the master vampire Misha and spends her days training and trying to forget about her true love Aric and his upcoming nuptials. With Tribe of demons roaming around every corner search of her, Celia faces her biggest threat yet but as usual she’s not alone. The Weird sisters are right by her side, along with her new family of weres, vamps and some new unlikely alliances. Destiny has tried time and time again to tear Celia from those she loves, but this tigress is not ready to give up the fight just yet!
    I was just as heartbroken as Celia at the end of A Cursed Embrace and was really hoping she’d give Misha a chance this time around, but of course I was disappointed. Yeah, my girl only has eyes for Aric, which I totally get but a girl could dream, right?! As much as I hated the circumstances, I do appreciate that Celia didn’t just pull a Bella Swan and locked herself in a room in a state of depression. Her goal to keep her home and sisters safe never wavers and gives her purpose during this trying time. She’s really grown as a character and while she does have a couple of moments of weakness in this book, Celia remains the strong and outspoken heroine I love. We learn more about her abilities and I can’t wait to see what she’s capable of with a little more training.
    The battle for Celia’s heart continues in Cursed by Destiny with Aric, Misha and a new were-lion suitor named Tye. I won’t go too much into detail, but I’m happy that among all the flirting and nakedness that ensues, Celia manages to stay true to her heart and defends her love for Aric (I would have probably given in to all that yummy temptation!). I was a little ticked off at Aric for choosing his duties over love but we learn more about him and his sacrifice which made me see him in a different light. I never doubted his love for Celia but his actions did make me question his “alpha-ness” (yeah, I made that up just now). He won me over by the end of this book and I was rooting for their HEA. I also didn’t expect the smexiness between Aric and Celia, usually it’s a fade to black scenario with them, but Ms. Robson gives us a couple of racy scenes I’m thankful for!
    Misha on the other hand I genuinely felt bad for. He’s never made his intentions with Celia a secret, but he sets himself up for heartbreak. The bond between him and Celia is stronger than ever, but there’s only room for one man in her heart. Misha is one of my favorite characters in the series and I truly hope he can remain friends with Celia and find love with a worthy leading lady, he deserves some romance!
    The Weird sisters always bring some fun and laughter to the mix and this time is no different. One of my favorite elements of this series is the strong bond they all share and how they’re willing to sacrifice themselves for family. As the oldest, Celia is usually the caretaker and main protector but the girls definitely show her they can hold their own in this book. I’m glad that the author switched things up a little with Emme in this book and that everyone doesn’t have their HEA just yet, it keeps things interesting!

    Cursed by Destiny is the third book in the Weird Girls series by

    Cursed by Destiny is the third book in the Weird Girls series by Cecy Robson.




    First let me start by saying that Cursed by Destiny shouldn’t be read alone, it should be read as a part of the series. I also highly recommend you to read the novella, A Cursed Moon, before reading this book to get the whole effect of the wonderful world Cecy Robson has created in her Weird Girls series.




    After the end of A Cursed Embrace (second book) saying I was eagerly waiting for this book is the understatement of the year. In A Cursed Embrace Mrs. Robson ripped my heart and stomped on it, but the worst part of it it’s that she has made me a masochist, and left me wanting for more. I’m glad to say that in Cursed by Destiny she delivered. Cecy Robson fixed my heart, broke it again and left me panting and wanting for more. You see what I’m saying? She is an evil author that loves to torture her readers. I love what she does to me with her magic, that one, which we called “Words”.




    Cursed by Destiny starts couple of days after the events in A Cursed Embrace. Celia is trying to live her life and not to think much about Aric’s upcoming nuptials. For her own protection and that of her sisters she is staying at Misha’s compound. Misha is helping her by training her and teaching her how to master her powers. Even though Misha wants something else with Celia she is clear of her feelings, she loves Misha as a friend and knows a relationship between them would never work. Her heart belongs to Aric.
    Celia has come a long way and we see that very clear in this installment. She has grown and matured a lot as a character, without changing the essence of what made her the Celia we have loved throughout the series.




    I have always loved Misha and after this installment I love him even more. I would have loved for him to have something with Celia, but after reading Cursed by Destiny it is clear Celia is not the woman for him. I’m sure Cecy and her Machiavellian brain has other plans for him, and if I’m right I’m really happy with that new twist in the story. *bows down to Cecy*




    I disliked Aric very much after what he did in A Cursed Embrace; but now in this installment, Cecy gives us his side of the story and shows us clearly that his position is not as easy as we could hope. Saying he’s between a rock and a hard place doesn’t encompasses his complicated situation. He really loves Celia, but there are other factors he can’t and should not discount, because they not only affect him, but others around him as well.




    As with previous books, Celia’s sisters play an important part in the story, they remind me to The Three Musketeers (that actually were four like the Wird sisters), they are always there for the other, regardless of the danger or consequences of their actions. I’m sure their motto is also “All for one, one for all”.
    It was good to see where they are with their significant others and see the changes Cecy had in store from some of them. You need to read this book to see what I’m talking about; let’s just say… Kudos to Cecy for the risks she took in Cursed by Destiny.




    Cecy Robson is the Queen of the Twists and Turns and a Cursed by Destiny was not different from her previous books. In this installment she gave us a new contender for Celia’s heart, a were-lion named Tye. I couldn’t care less for him when he was first introduced, but along the story he grew up on me. Tye is pompous, presumptions and very sensual, a perfect representative of the lion clan. But, that is not all, Tye is also caring, funny and all around a really nice guy. Cecy, Cecy! Why do you love to mess with my head/heart so much!?




    Cursed by Destiny is a roller coaster of emotions with so many twists and turns that you won’t be able to discern which way is up and which way is down. Some questions about Celia and her family are answered and some are left unanswered, left waiting for us to discover in books to come.
    Cursed by Destiny is an action packed book that will keep you on the edge of you chair and will leave you feeling like you passed through a grinder. That’s the power Cecy Robson has with her words.




    Before reading Cursed by Destiny I recommend you to have the take out menu handy as well as a bottle of water, because from the moment you start this book is going to be impossible to put it down until you reach its very end, and when you get to the end you will be in such a shock that you won’t know how to move or what to do next. Yes! Cecy sucker punches us again with the end. OMFG! An end that I kind of saw coming, but despite that, it still left me flabbergasted, and dying to get my greedy hands on next book in the series.




    I can’t recommend you enough Cursed by Destiny, but as I said before this book should be read as part of a series. If you haven’t read previous books of the Weird Girls series you don’t know what you are missing. Cursed by Destiny and the Weird Girls series in general are a must read for urban fantasy fans.

    Cursed By Destiny had me hooked from the very first page, the plot was fantastic, their enemies were creepy and horrifying and I had my heart in my mouth several times in absolute terror about what was about to happen. By the time I reached the end I felt like I had been through every single possible emotion (some more than once) and I was left reeling at the end of it. The end of the book made me drop my jaw to the floor. I don't know how I'm going to survive the wait for the next book! If you haven't come across this series then I really can't recommend it highly enough. Cecy Robson has now become one of my auto buy authors and I will be devouring anything else she publishes the second I can get my hands on it! Perfection is the only word I can use to describe it and I don't know that that conveys all that I feel about this book.

    Great series but bad book

    I have loved this series but this book is really bad. I am not sure if she has just ruined the series with this latest installment. The book falls apart half way through when they go to "Africa". The Africa in this book fulfills a stereotype of prejudice with its primitive descriptions. Has this author even been to the continent? Her depictions are really offensive. The plot also falls apart from this part on with a rehashing of the same ideas again - the plot to keep the protagonists apart. How many times can we read a new version of the same thing?

    Cursed by Destiny is the third book in Cecy Robson's Weird Girl

    Cursed by Destiny is the third book in Cecy Robson's Weird Girl series. It is a mix of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance that will entice readers of both genres. With plenty of supernatural elements and a romantic twist, this book is at turns dark and light. Robson uses humor well in this book to lighten the somewhat evil machinations of the Elder. Fans of the series will be rooting for Celia to find get her happy ending, but there is a ton of were politics and a sexy vampire standing in the way. Another great book about a group of sisters, cursed with unique abilities.

    What I liked:

    This is a great urban fantasy series and If you haven't started reading it yet, you are missing out. Each book can be read as a stand alone, but I think readers would be missing a great deal of background and essential story set up to make them as enjoyable as when they are read together. 

    In Cursed by Destiny, Aric has made his choice and is expected to marry Barbara a pureblood were. He has basically left Celia in the dust. But he hasn't quite let her go. He is furious that she is living with Misha, the vampire Master and that she may have ties to a new character, Tye, who has been prophesied to have children with Celia, who will save the world. Not a love triangle, but a love quadrangle. Now that's ambitious for an author to pull off, but it works for this book. Readers may be getting a little frustrated with Celia and Aric's tormented love and may need something of someone else to latch on to. 

    I liked the way that Robson has no fear in her writing. She isn't afraid to place her characters in mortal danger. Her villain is so dark that he makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. This is true urban fantasy writing, where the darkness takes you right to edge before good wins out. You get that feeling of this may go the other way. The bad guys just might win. Is that possible? It could be in this series, Robson gets you that wound up. A hallmark of a great writer. 

    What I didn't like: 

    There is just soooo much going on in this book. Celia and Aric's tragic love story. Celia and Misha's connection. A new possible love interest in Tye and that's just Celia'a love life. The other issues with the Elder and saving the world and being on the outs with the were's and how her sisters fit into this and what the possible outcome could be. It's dizzying at times. There was enough here for more than one book. A little bit slower pace might have been more enjoyable.

    It's been three books. Celia and Aric need to settle this thing. Either they need to get together and stay together or they need to split and stay split. It's exhausting trying to keep up with where these are in their love story, or if they really even have one. 

    Bottom Line:

    This is a great series, but this book had way too much going on. I loved the relationship between Celia and Misha and even the introduction of Tye, but this thing with Aric needs to be resolved in one way or another. How does one woman deserve all this attention? I'm not quite sure Celia pulls it off. A good book to be sure, but maybe not my favorite of the series so far.

    I have been a fan of this series from the very first book, but this one blows them out of the water.  It is not only the funniest of the series, but it also has amazing action/suspense and a hint of mystery.  Oh and her love life is such a mess.  Aric wants her, but can’t have her.  Misha wants her, but she does not want him.  A new man enters the picture and wants her babies.  It is enough to make your head spin.  It is awesomeness.  Of course her sisters to fight along side her as she battles the evil that seems to be targeting her.  Oh and I could not forget the Catholic School Girls.   In a nut shell, this book was fun, fun, fun!  I can not wait for the next one!




    If you are a fan of the series, you are really going to enjoy this book.  It answers questions, delves deeper into the characters, cracks you up, has you on the edge of your seat more then once and we get to see more of Misha, who I adore.  If you have not read the previous books, you could jump on board now, but you really will probably feel like you are missing out on a lot.  This book is not the end of the series, so not everything is tied up in a pretty little bow at the end, but I would not classify the ending as “an evil cliffhanger” either.

    As soon as I closed the book…. my brain began to shut down. I couldn’t cope. It wasn’t supposed to end like that! My life is in utter chaos! And yes, I’m being overly dramatic but that’s what happens when I pick up and read one of Ms. Robson’s books. They consume my life for the amount of time it takes to finish it. Nothing in my life holds any interest or can pull me away from the book. There I go again, embellishing a wee bit again. I do manage to feed my family but it does become a bit of a race to finish her books so I can get back to the rest of the real world (tee, hee). Let me share with you the latest, greatest (to date), coming on January 7th in the Weird Girls series, Cursed by Destiny.

    First, let’s get the formalities out of the way. If you’re a fan of urban fantasy or paranormal romance and you’re NOT already reading this series… START! Second, if you’ve read the first two books but haven’t read the novella A Cursed Moon, I strenuously insist that you read the novella before embarking on Cursed by Destiny. You’ll thank me later…

    Now, how do I write a review for a book in a series that has so many “oh snap!” moments and not give away any spoilers? I’m sure Ms. Robson was equally overwhelmed/stymied when she set out to write this particular book in her Weird Girls series. She had a lot to accomplish. Because when we last saw Celia, she was nursing her wounds and hiding out. But the demons she’s been battling since the first book are still causing trouble and now they know Celia’s name. And they’ve stepped up their game and gotten some teammates.

    What makes this book fantastic and completely engaging is that there is so much going on while Ms. Robson is molding and shaping plot lines, opening new roads, or completing roads that have gone their course, but her story isn’t confusing, meandering, or convoluted. It flows well, all interactions of the characters make complete sense, and they all fit incredibly well. You can see exactly where and when a particular character made his/her dramatic decision (example: end a relationship).

    It does take a bit to get to the climatic ending of the book but I never for one minute regretted the ride there. We had a lot of characters to visit. Even though Taran isn’t in the forefront of the story as much as she was in the past, we definitely get a lot more Emme and about the same amount of Shana. If you’ve read the novella like I strenuously advised you to, you’ll see even more surprises in store for Bren and Danny.

    I thought I read somewhere that some readers were complaining that the last book in the series, A Cursed Embrace, didn’t have enough Misha in it. “Phhhpht,” I said. But if that was the case with you, then you’ll be happy to know that Misha is front and center in this book. There’s just a tiny bit less of Aric, if that’s even possible :D

    From start to finish, Ms. Robson’s writing is crystal clear and concise yet beautifully descriptive and YES, she can write the romance parts AND the fight scenes equally well. Hence why I have no reservations about recommending this series to just about everyone I know.

    This time, I’m NOT embellishing…

    The poor Wird sisters, and Celia in particular, have totally got

    The poor Wird sisters, and Celia in particular, have totally gotten the shaft. Totally, and in every sense of the word. Cecy writes the characters with a lot of emotion and creates empathy in the reader, or at least me. I just want to slap a bunch of people with a big shovel to get them to behave and play nicely with each other. At one point in reading, I noted that Cecy writing was insouciant. The passage

    “She was a beautiful woman with dark brows, waist length ebony hair, and blue eyes that glowed like melted sapphires. When she walked into a room and raised her arms, I could swear doves and butterflies flew out of her armpits.”

    Celia and gang have to run all over the world to quell rogue uprisings with impunity. And Celia is a total badass. She’s also selfless, noble, loyal. I like how much Celia has grown into a leader and super strong fighting machine. She has some very handy skills, like being able to shift through the earth. Her sisters are also fabulous fighters.

    And, there are very few people who treat her with the respect she deserves. Grrr!

    The story has become complex in its activity but remains a simple good versus evil scenario, with various complications and defections.

    The title, of course has the word “destiny” in it. And, there is a prophecy involved. To me that implies something inescapable, regardless of anything anyone can do. I’m not sure I believe in destiny as prophecy, but it is a common device in books, especially speculative fiction.

    I found the action, the fighting action anyway, hard to follow – a problem, however, I attribute to my own reading style.

    I enjoy the series, and highly recommend it. It’s taken me a long time to accept that a book can be fabulous even with a few flaws. I would like to see a little less beating down of the main characters. Every so often something good has to happen or the story becomes a drag. This thing with Aric being a wienie has gone on long enough. This is the third full-length book in the series and is best read as part of the series.

    We all have those authors that we absolutely adore and those ser

    We all have those authors that we absolutely adore and those series that we anxiously sit on pins and needles waiting for the next book to be released. Series that when we do get them into our hot little hands we want to weep for joy because we just know we are going to be blown away. Those books that we can't help but devour in one sitting even though we try like heck to make the story last but, we can't help it, we love the storyline and the characters way too much to not devour it, no matter how hard we try to make them last. 




    Cecy Robson and the Weird Girls Series are one such author and series for me. I have loved every single book, every single novella and have yet, to fail to devour them within hours of receiving them. I can't help it, I am hopelessly drawn into the beautiful world and characters that Ms. Robson has created and they have weaseled their way into my heart and I feel like they have become family. People that I love and care about desperately. People that I want to see succeed and get their happily ever after. I want each and every character to find love and happiness and peace. I want the best for them all, with, maybe the exception of good ole Mrs. M, but even she amuses me and I can't help but like the tough ornery old bird.




    With the way the last book ended you would think that I would go into this with a little apprehension, with a little nervousness, even with a little fear, expecting my heart to break, but you know what? I didn't. I didn't because I completely and wholeheartedly trust Ms. Robson to give me a good story. To make me laugh along the way, cheer at their triumphs and cry at their failures and yes, maybe even break my heart a little along the way. I know without a doubt, that she loves these characters as much as I do and no matter what happens in this book, I trust her, I really do. 




    So it was with excitement and happiness that I opened the pages of this and dove right in and let me tell you, I loved this from page one all the way to the ending.




    Once again Robson had me completely captivated and eagerly turning the pages. Celia is just as kick butt as always and maybe even more so now after the events in the last book. This girl is strong with a capital S but she is also loyal, loving and kind. Everything I want to be some day when I finally grow up. 








    She had a lot of rough challenges in this and by the end of the book I felt a little raw and worked over emotional wise but I loved every single minute of it and I wouldn't change a thing because I know everything that happened will only make her stronger and more fierce than ever. And with another new person to take care of, I know Celia will only strive harder to get what she wants and to protect those she loves.




    I really loved Aric in this, he really redeemed himself from the last book and my heart broke for hi for some many different reasons. 




    Once again the wolf boys have captured my heart, I love Koda, Gem, Bren, Danny and Liam. They are just seriously good guys that you would love to have on your side.




    Emma, Shayna and Taran are as kick butt as ever and they too are growing into pretty fierce strong warriors and fighters. I love them even more in this book because of it. How they are there for Celia when she needs them in whatever capacity that might be.




    Misha, ah Misha, I can't help but have a spot spot for the little blood sucker. Yes he is a pain in the butt sometimes and yes he is a pervert and okay, he pushes Celia a little too much sometimes but I love him. I just can't resist his charm and the goodness I see in him. Even the Catholic “school girls” are starting to wear on me!




    This book was probably my favorite yet but also more serious than the others. Things are getting dangerous and complicated and I really really just want the next book NOW. It is going to be a super long wait for it and I will be at the edge of my seat waiting. 




    Robson has once again created a master piece filled with longing, suspense, action, romance, danger, humor, friendship, family bond (in all forms) and kick butt heroines and heros that will work their way into your heart and mind and refuse to leave and that will be okay because you won't want them too.




    I will be thinking about this one long after I have put it down, long after the review has been written and long after it's release. I hope you write fast Ms. Robson because I am so ready for the next!

    I was so eager to read the third volume of the adventures of Wir

    I was so eager to read the third volume of the adventures of Wird sisters. It must be said that after the end of the second volume and the novella, I could only be curious to read this new story. The Celia’s life is always the most fascinating to follow.

    As we knew it after the novella, Celia must now cope with the absence of Aric, as well as the Misha’s insistence to create something between them. Yet this is very difficult for the young woman to deal with all that as she has never been in such a situation. In addition, it is increasingly difficult to see the man she loves living like that, away from her. Yet they still try to live a sort of clandestine relationship as best they can under the nose of the elders. But this only concerns her personal life. Yes because there is much more in this volume. Helped by Misha, Celia will have to try to work on her skills and see what she is capable of. Changing into another animal? To fight? To do yoga? Yes all this and many other things. Even if she works, she isn’t very interested on all these things, but this training could save her life more than once. Because it seems that now, her enemies know exactly who she is, and actively seek to eliminate her. She will then need all the help her allies can provide.

    I took a great pleasure in discovering this novel. Celia, like her sisters, has evolved over the previous volumes. Well, they know they don’t have any choices; they must now fight to save the world. Moreover, there will be many battles, all very impressive and I enjoyed the author’s work on these details. Of course, you can imagine that I was also really curious to see how the relationship between Celia / Aric / Misha would evolve now. I must say our heart is definitely broken for our heroine when we see all the things she has to go through to try to find happiness that it often seems inaccessible. Aric and Misha are two totally different yet both great men. We would like a nice story between Celia and Aric and yet all this is very difficult for many reasons. But I must admit that I would also love to see something happen between Celia and Misha to get a glimpse of what it could be for them. But the choice is quite difficult and yet I easily support Celia in her choices whatever they may be. Yet we can add a third character here, Tye, who is intended to have children with our tigress (depending on Destiny). I confess that I had a little trouble with this character when he appeared in the story at first… He is so arrogant and full of himself! Yet while the story unfolds, we begin to appreciate him a little more, although he is still far from being at the height of Misha or Aric but I am very curious to see what will happen later in the story.

    We have a lot of things for each character here and I admit that I was surprised more than once. I won’t, however, say more so you’ll have the pleasure to discover all this. Cecy Robson presents a story without any dead time and it was very difficult to put the book down before finishing it as I was curious to see what would happen. Regarding the big villains of the story, I admit that I quickly realized who was behind the whole story and I was surprised to see that Celia needed more time to realize what was happening. But I was still surprised by many revelations and now that I’ve finished the novel, I’m really looking forward to read more, especially after such a purpose. If you have not tried the series yet, I highly recommend it. Each novel is very exciting. All the elements to make a very good series of urban fantasy are met: creatures of all kinds, explosive heroines and amazing plots. A Must Read!

    more from this reviewer

    Oh my. Yes. You love the connection between Celia and Alric. And the fight to survive.

    You need to read the previous books before this one.

    Celia's staying at Misha's, training to be a valuable weapon for the Alliance against the Tribe. Misha desires more. Then Celia meets another that is destined for more. Celia's not ready for more with any, other than her mate. Someone is trying to kill Celia. Over and over again.This someone is percipient and insistent that Celia is to die as she is a threat to their existence. With all the complications and stress around Aric, Misha, attempts on her life, and sisters, Celia is ready for any mission she can get against the Tribe. But there are greater threats that will come.

    A roller coaster ride of emotions with Celia, her sisters, the wolves, and so many more. My heart thumps for them, in excitement and in tribulation. But my thoughts in the end are always for hope with the moments we do see it.

    Dang! I'm waiting for the NEXT story. I need to see what Celia does next!

    I can see many different views coming from this book. There is a good bit of tribulation for the girls and many more in this book. It's good to see some come through, but not all do. The heartache can go both ways with readers in this series. This is the third book of the series, I'm not sure what others will think, but I'm thinking mixed thoughts will come about. I love the struggle, that love IS worth it. But there is a lot of struggle and some might be ready for that to be easing up. *shrug shoulders* We will see. I think there is a string of hope left for us to grasp to, while we wait for the next book.

    I love reading these books they are full of everything in the Urban Fantasy and Romance realms. From the magic to feeling my heart bleed for them all. I'm holding out hope though. I have too. I know love is not easy and life creates massive obstacles. But to fight the way Celia and Aric have. Wow. This is some love for them.

    Oh man. I love Celia. I love Aric. I love the sisters and all the wolves and weres in this book. Heck, I love the vampires too! But... Can we throw a girl a bone? The heartache I feel with Celia. Wow. Celia is struggling, but doing her best with her Aric situation. Part of me understands yet the other part doesn't, on how Celia's three sisters are accepted by the Elders and Celia is not. In this token, the were Elders irritate me. Aric is even struggling as well. Gods! This couple hurts and eases my heart as I read.

    Cecy has left some breadcrumbs and planted a few seeds in this book. I'm curious to see how they play out in the future. There are little things mentioned that I am curious to see if she uses in future books, and with whom they are used on. Interesting. Nicely added Cecy, nicely added.

    I enjoy the clear divisions and little ways of each supernatural race. I enjoy the surprising ways we learn of the vampires ways, yes Celia is as new to their ways as us so it's very surprising. Even the were ways. Interesting to learn little things we do of the different weres and of the mated bond.

    Oh, I'll be waiting for the next book with Celia. Most definitely. I'm three books in and FULLY vested with Celia and the Weird sisters. I WILL be seeing them through to the end!
