When bike messenger Rio Jones witnessed a supernatural
criminal heavyweight kidnap a little girl while on a job,
she only has one option; to pack up her stuff and hide. In
order to find the kid and keep her safe, she knows she'll
have to hire the man some people refer to as the Dark
Wizard of Bordertown, the very man who recently rejected
her advances. Even so, Rio knows that if anyone can solve
the mystery behind the kidnapping of the little girl and
get her back, it's Luke.
Cursed immortal Luke Oliver is a private investigator
trying to distance himself from his past but, somehow, it
keeps catching up to him. When the League of the Black Swan
contacts him with instructions to get involved with Rio, a
woman he's trying his best to stay away from due to his
curse, Luke has every intention of ignoring the request.
Fate has another plan for the pair though and Luke finds
himself helping Rio before the night is out. Now on the
hunt for the kidnapped girl while losing the battle to
ignore his attraction to Rio, Luke discovers an even
bigger problem. The closer she gets to her twenty-fifth
birthday, it seems the more people are becoming interested
in Rio. If Luke and Rio can't figure out why soon, Luke may
lose Rio forever.
Alyssa Day, best known for her best selling Warriors of
Poseidon series, kicks off a brand new series with THE
CURSED. Day gives us a spectacular first book in the

type of characters you can't help but like. He's trying to
keep his curse contained and wants to be a loner. She goes
out and makes friends with criminal trolls. These two going
at it is entertainment enough. I love the parts where Luke
blows things up. Read THE CURSED to understand that
reference. It's a riot! Add the delightful cast of side
characters and you've got a start to an amazing series with
lots of possibilities. Day easily pulls you into the
dimensional world of Bordertown and all the supernatural
beings that reside in it. With plenty of action, romance
and wit, THE CURSED is the kind of roller coaster thrill
ride you don't want ending.
