Cursed

Publisher:  Ravynheart Publishing

Publish Date:  October 2011

Series:  1st in Touched series; affiliated with Champion of the Sidhe series and Rise of the Unseelie series.

Book Synopsis:
As a private investigator specializing in paranormal problems, London Eyer thought she could handle working for the Sidhe. They couldn’t be any worse than vampires or werewolves or wizards, could they? Oh, how wrong she was. One ‘Touch’ of Sidhe magic and she was cursed. Her only chance to survive is to serve the creep that cursed her against the vicious Changelings out for his blood.

Touched is one of the interlacing story lines, that makes up The Sidhe saga. Each thread can be read alone, but if you read them together in the suggested order, you will get the full experience.
 
First Sentence:
Hanging out with a vampire while she feeds on someone is kinda like being in the room while your best friend makes out.

My Thoughts & Summary:
London is called to a meeting with vampire associate and friend Selena, to meet a new client - Rico.  London's new client is... special and curses her with a touch to working for him, a sidhe.  Now she needs to find some specific information for him while jonsing for his next touch, but who knows what more will be needed or happen in the future.

This short read starts out with a dark sexual, sensual feel to it.  And even has a dark feel through it.  After reading the other two short stories I liked the history supplied through London's contacts and the darkness here.  This story introduces a few other elements to the other short stories, a history and the side of the fey's enemies.  We learn much more of the Wizards and their brief history with the fey.  We see the land is divided by the fey and wizards, Ireland and England.

I'm curious to see how these three storylines touch each other through the future writings.  They each add elements to the other series.  All do have a feel of the beginnings of a book for each character, but do have an arc to the story and a close.  Just a close that lets you want to know more.


I read this at my own leisure and enjoyment.
