Overview

THE YEAR IS 1910. Eighteen-year-old Will Edwards has landed a prestigious apprenticeship at Detroit's Tesla Industries, the most advanced scientific research center in the United States. It's a plum prize for a young man who dreams of a career in the new science of Otherwhere Engineering.

But his father doesn't want him to go. And he won't tell him why.

Determined to get there by any means necessary, Will finds unexpected support along the way. His old friend Jenny Hansen—daughter of a San Francisco timber baron—is eager to help him for reasons of her own. And so is his estranged brother Ben, who he hasn't seen in over ten years.

But running away turns out to be the easy part. On the first full moon after his eighteenth birthday, Will is stricken by a powerful magic—a devastating curse laid upon his ancestors by the malevolent sangrimancer Aebedel Cowdray. Will must find a way to control the magic that possesses him—or the vengeful warlock's spirit will destroy everything and everyone he loves.

    I wanted to like it more...

    I read the first two books in the series and immediately bought this one because I enjoyed the first two so much. I did not like this third one much at all.
    The writing style was good and the author's world build was very well done. She does Steampunk very well and I very much enjoy her inventions and the thought she puts into how things work together and even more how magic works opposed to science and how they work together in some cases.
    I didn't like any of the characters in the book. Not even the ones returning from the first two. Most seemed petulant and spoiled and more determined to have their way no matter what than have a civilized conversation. I had no sympathy for the two main characters because they were utter morons determined to be martyrs to their own particular causes. I get that they were young and making poor choices but one of the pair should have had some sort of common sense.
    Since this is a nook book and I enjoyed the first two so much, I'll keep this one, but if it was a paper copy I would be getting rid of it never intending to read it again.

    I will read anything M K Hobson writes.

    I was a big fan of M K Hobson's THE NATIVE STAR and THE HIDDEN GODDESS, so I came into THE WARLOCK'S CURSE with really high expectation and, oh God, were they met.

    Everything about this book pulled me in. I will give that it had a slow start (specially if you weren't familiar with the other two books that comprise this series), but it didn't bother me because half the time I was just /trying to figure out what the hell was going on/. It was so much fun--the characters, the plot, the wonderful dialogue.

    What I loved most, though, was how dark this book turned out to be. Just the themes it touched and the others it alluded to.

    I can't wait for the next book. Like, literally WHERE IS IT.

    A definite recommend :)
