Kurzbeschreibung

Dying sucks--and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he's a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she's more than interested. There's just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she's willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't?But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not've been an accident at all, she's not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life. For real this time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful story 19. Januar 2014
Von Naenna
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to admit, that I am about to get a real fan of Jennifer Armentrouts writing!
Her stories always find their way in my brain, in my heart immediately!
This story begins by telling the tale of Ember McWilliams messed up (second) life. Bit by bit the reader finds out all about the real bad situation, she's living in. How she cares for her little sister, how she manages a grown up live but being just a teenager. And then, suddenly everything changes. And at first you don't know if for the better or the worse!
Is Hayden the saint or the devil?
I finished this book over one weekend. It was intense, it was thrilling and it was romantic - short, it provides everything, I expect from a good reading.
I was captured by the Covenant-Series from the first page down to the last of all 5 (?) books. Here, it was the same. And I am a bit dissapointed that this is not a series, too.
I guess I will start to read all of Jennifer Armentrouts other books, because she has this ability to reach my heart.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another great JLA book! 18. September 2012
Von BookcaseLaura - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
My favorite part of romance novels is the tension and build-up, and Jennifer L. Armentrout writes it like no one else. In my opinion, she is the queen of romantic paranormal YA fiction. In a few short months, I have devoured every one of her books, starting with Obsidian and the Covenant series -- and now with Cursed, she has hooked me again. She just loves to frustrate us readers by erecting barriers - whether society rules and taboos, or in this case, physical issues - which keep young lovers apart. But, that frustration only fuels the fire of romance and keeps us reading to find out how it will all work out (and we know it has to, because YA/paranormal or not, they are all still romance novels at heart!).

Cursed brings us into the world of Ember McWilliams, a high school senior who was killed in a car accident two years ago, and then miraculously brought back to life by the special touch of her younger sister, Olivia. But, that event apparently awakened her own "gift" -- killing anything living she touches. What she thinks of as a curse, has made her an outsider with very few friends and an obvious lack of a love life. Enter Hayden Cromwell. A mysterious boy with a "gift" of his own who promises refuge and help controlling her gift. He gives her hope that maybe she doesn't have to be quite so alone in this world...but only if she can trust him. Which means trusting his family, who may or may not have had a role in the accident that caused her father's death and brought upon her curse.

The beginning of Cursed starts out a bit slow, even though there are some fairly interesting events that occur right away, I found it a bit difficult to get into because Ember's world just seemed so bleak, and it just kept getting bleaker. Ember herself describes it accurately as "desolation". There didn't seem to be a bright spot or silver lining to be found in the first 100 pages or so, and that desolation was palpable, even a bit hard to read. But, as Ember and Hayden get closer, and more is revealed about the true nature as to why they are all where they are and how they got to be there, some of that darkness starts to lighten. I flew through the last 100 pages felt a little sad it had to end just as things were really getting good. Not sure if this is one in a series as a lot of her other YA books are, but I, for one, would love to read more. For fans of Obsidian and Half-Blood, Cursed is a must read -- you will not be disappointed! 4.5/5 stars

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intense, both emotionally, romantically and in action. Great characters and love the premise. 21. September 2012
Von brandileigh2003 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I know that you've heard me go on and on about how great the writing of Jennifer Armentrout is... and big surprise here: I LOVED this book too.
Jennifer has this gift for writing books that make me swoon, fan myself, make sure my husband isn't reading over my shoulder and admire the main character for being awesomesauce.
Cursed is a bit different from Obsidian and Half-Blood meaning no gods, aliens or apple throwing, but it is still captivating. One plus is that it is currently a stand-alone so we get a wrapped up ending that doesn't make me want to pull my hair out because I need more Aiden/Seth/Daemon... Although I do miss Hayden, and definitely wouldn't mind seeing more of him... And more of Ember's adventures of course.
While I totally understood where Ember was coming from and I felt for her, there were times that I just wanted to whisper some sense into her ears. But then I guess the book wouldn't have been nearly as entertaining. Given if I were in some of the situations she was in, I would probably threaten to unleash my deadly touch on them too. That aside, I really enjoyed being in Ember's head. She was so selfless and it was great to be in her head and watch all of the interactions with her little sister Olivia. It was emotional everything that the girls had to deal with, and the guilt and fear that Ember carried around on a daily basis. I can't even imagine having to avoid touching others and it being a life or death situation.
Cursed features quite a few characters and while all of them were not immediately likable, in fact rather suspicious, they still added to the story. There were all kinds of special gifts and powers, and it felt like a teenage X-men moment going on there, with the JLA twist and a much hotter love interest.
There was always action or emotional issues to keep the plot moving and keep me on the edge of my bed wanting more.
Bottom line: Intense, both emotionally, romantically and in action. Great characters and love the premise.

1.0 von 5 Sternen What a waste of money 28. Dezember 2012
Von MKSchnyder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This was a terrible book. The premise wasn't bad. She kills people when she touches them. Okay, I could see that being interesting. However, that is the only good thing about the book. The main character, Ember, is whiny, unintelligent, and irresponsible. The emotional plot twists and turns were not well developed and weren't believable. Still, I could have dealt with all this if it weren't for the "hero."
Hayden confesses to watching Ember, following her around for two years before she even knows he exists. For some reason, Ember finds this attractive. I have something to say about this. Stalkers are not hot. They're creepy. Teen novel writers need to get that in their heads. None of this "he pays so much attention to me because he loves me" and "he can't bear to be away from me" BS. Stalkers. Are. Not. Hot. Hayden is an overbearing creep who conspires with his family to kidnap Ember and her sister and hold them against their will. Not hot.
I do not recommend this book. The characters were unlikable and underdeveloped, the plot too sudden and unbelievable, and the overall quality of writing was poor. Also, it was way overpriced. I could buy a book ten times better for a tenth of the price. It was a waste of money.
I give it 1 1/2 stars.

2.0 von 5 Sternen NO 6. November 2012
Von Nikki Wang - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I'm a giant fan of Jennifer Armentrout so when I got this in the mail, I was ecstatic! Sadly, I was disappointed, although I'm pretty sure I'm the only to feel that way. Cursed wasn't as stunning as Jennifer's other series, but it was pretty good anyways.

Character wise, I didn't like Ember. Even when proof was thrown in front of her face, she insisted that it was all a) a dream or b) a hallucination/lie. She had this atmosphere of distrust and despair that irked me a lot. Also, I feel like she had a multiple personality disorder. Yeah. Psycho, then emotional, then normal. Rinse and repeat As the book progressed, so did her attitude and thank GOD for that. She would slowly learn to accept that "gifts" were real and she would try to control her powers. Does she succeed? I don't know...you'll just have to find out yourself!
Hayden, our love interest...he, well, seemed typical and one of those cliché boyfriends. I'm sorry you Hayden fans! But he was a guy with an extremely powerful gift, frightneningly handsome and charming, and interested (*cough* stalking *cough*) Ember? WHAT!? It just struck a nerve reminding me of this love interest (who shall not be named) who I hated. Completely, utterly hated. Hayden just wasn't swoon-worthy to me and well, I kind of wanted to strangle him. Although I'm sure Ember would kill me.

Speaking of, the romance. I'm kind of deciding whether it was good or bad. The romance wasn't insta-love...actually, I'm deciding on that too. Hayden seemed to go insta-lovey from what we read and although Ember didn't, I found it disturbing that she wasn't more wary of some guy who had unnatural powers who was basically stalking her. And even when she was a bit wary, it lasted aabout half a day and she forgave him because he was charming and handsome. Uh huh. Yeah. Smart, Ember.
On the other hand, if you ignore all of that, the romance was sweet and...pretty non insta-love?

The plot, I'll have to admit, did remind me a bit of Shatter Me, but Jennifer Armentrout creates her own plot off the "death touch" route, adding in other prett well-known gifts in. There were a lot of things that were pretty obvious, a few that weren't, but all in all it was a pretty good tie off. A few horrid things definitely go ont hat actually fit the book pretty well so in plot-wise it was pretty good!

And while I was going to rate this a 2 star book, the way Jennifer Armentrout tells the story brought it up to 3. Armentrout nows how to deftly weave a story and make the words into an enchanting piece that will probably captivate you from start to finish. There's just something about her writing style that makes you bring your rating a star up! (Honestly, I think I'm pretty much the only person on Earth who pretty much disliked Cursed.)

3.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointed 22. September 2012
Von Reading Until Dawn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have to say that I'm disappointed with the outcome of Cursed. I've been an avid Jennifer Armentrout fan ever since I read her Lux and Covenant series, and when I saw that she was releasing a new novel, I was ecstatic! I've always loved the way that Jennifer can blend in a witty and kick ass heroine, fast moving and heart racing action, drop dead gorgeous love interests, and a hot steamy romance that makes you want to melt. That wasn't the case for Cursed.

The protagonist, Ember, wasn't who I was expecting her to be. I can't say that I hated her but I didn't love her either. Yes, there were many things that I admired about Ember, like her determination to take care of her sister and herself without any outside help. You can see right off the bat that Ember always thinks of her sister before anyone else and truly cares about her even when she's throwing a massive temper tantrum. Ember also has the funny inner dialogue that is present in Jennifer's other heroines, which I love! Those were probably the only things I liked about her. At other times in the novel, I found her submissive, weak, and sometimes even pathetic.

Someone with the touch of death, is a concept that isn't overused but isn't unique in the world of young adult books. Books like Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi and Touch by Jus Accardo have the same ideas. I found the plot slow moving, since there wasn't as much action as I hoped for there to be. The villain was also to easy to spot and from there on most of the twists and turns were predictable.

I'm probably the only person who feels this way. I've heard nothing but amazing reviews on this, and I really wished I could've enjoyed it more. I won't be reading the sequel if she decides to make another one, but I will still be anxiously waiting for Deity and Opal to be released.

Heroine- 3/5
Romance- 3/5
It was a insta love, which annoyed the crap out of me. If you ignore that fact, then at times it was a pretty steamy and tense romance because of Ember's hands off policy.
Comedy- 4/5
Action- 2.5/5
Overall- 3/5
