Interesting short story. I received this from the author for an honest review. I liked the story, it's a bit too short, though. Characters are exciting and fun. Interaction between Emma and Calvin is priceless! Hope there are more adventures in the future! I am drawn to a story by the summary and the cover of the book (shallow, I know) The story gets 4 stars, but the cover only gets 3. Great writing from the author.

This was a novella, so it was a rather quick read. While there were moments that I enjoyed, and I definitely liked Emma and Calvin¿s character, there were moments that I didn¿t connect with the story. I think I liked the idea of the story more than the story itself. I enjoyed Calvin and Emma¿s romance and situation; the ending changed everything for me. The romance was cut off at a pretty hot moment and there wasn¿t a satisfying resolution at the end. I hated the ending and felt that it was just a way to end the story instead of a place that the author arrived at. I like all different types of ending, they don¿t have to be the kind where everything is happy, I only request that they come naturally; happy or sad. I think it would help if the story was fleshed out a little more.

I really enjoyed this book! I like mythology, but I’m most familiar with Greek and a little Norse. To get a taste of Egyptian mythology was really fascinating. The way it was weaved into the characters’ lives was interesting and added a really dire conflict. As for the characters, I loved Emma’s character. She drowns herself in alcohol to deal with her curse and it takes its toll, but she still has a good heart. Calvin is such a brokenhearted man. He starts off as kind of a jackass, but you totally feel for him when you find out why. Being a fairly short book can often present a challenge to get character development and plot development all packed in efficiently. I feel that the character development is there and most of the plot is. My only complaint for the plot comes in at the very end. The ending solution is a little confusing, but ultimately easy enough to just roll with. If you’re looking for a short read that will have you wanting to say “hells yeah, ‘bout time!” one moment and have your heart squeezed in a vice so tight you think it’ll just stop in your chest the next, go read Curse of the Egyptian Goddess. It’s got an ending you’ll never see coming!
