Genre: YA, Fantasy
Rating: 3 stars


The Connelly boys are practically royalty at St. Andrew’s Prep. Popular, wealthy, and devastatingly beautiful, the four brothers have long cast a spell over their classmates and over the sleepy seaport town of Rosalyn Bay, Ireland.

There’s just one problem: they’re also cursed.

… Or so the rumors say.

Seventeen-year-old newcomer Scarlet Monroe has never been one for rumors, but when she inadvertently banishes a demon while trying to help eldest brother Jack Connelly, the most breathtaking of the boys and the one to who she feels inexplicably drawn, she quickly discovers there may be more to the local superstitions and folklore than she originally thought.

Before long, the Connellys pull her into a dark and mysterious world filled with ancient magic, powerful spells, kidnapped souls, and deadly enemies. But none of it compares to Scarlet discovering the truth of who she really is… or what she’ll have to become to defeat a rising evil older than humankind itself before she loses everyone she loves-that is, of course, if she can survive the world of the Connellys long enough.



I really don’t know how to feel about this one. I remember it but at the same time I don’t. It started out good but then I started losing interest around 50%. I wasn’t a big fan of the heroine. I didn’t like any of the Connelly brothers. I knew who the reaper was before it was revealed.

This wasn’t my cuppa tea. I’m not saying it’s bad. My younger self would have loved this but my adult self is just like eh.. For me anymore with YA it’s a hit or miss. This was a miss.

On to the next one.
