Rereading a Favorite

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer is a book that captured my heart in 2020, and three years later, it still holds a special place among my favorites. There’s something magical about reading a book that feels like it was written just for you, and this story did exactly that.

In the past couple of years, life has been treating me well, and this newfound happiness has amplified my enjoyment of reading. “A Curse So Dark and Lonely” is a series that I can’t help but share with everyone because it left an indelible mark on my literary journey. It was my introduction to Brigid Kemmerer’s work, and since that first read, I’ve eagerly devoured the entire series.

What makes this book truly exceptional is the way it seamlessly melds fantasy and the modern world. The cursed Prince Rhen, who transforms into a beast every winter, is a character who has spent centuries seeking true love to break his curse. The enchantress Lilith grants him one last chance to find love, making this season his final opportunity. Enter Harper, my absolute favorite character in the fantasy genre.

Harper hails from our contemporary world and has faced considerable hardships, including her mother’s battle with cancer and her absent father. What’s remarkable about Harper is her resilience in the face of adversity, including her diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy. She refuses to be defined by her condition and, in order to make ends meet, her brother Jake works for some rather unsavory individuals to settle their father’s debts. It’s during one of these risky moments that Harper unwittingly crosses over into the fantasy realm, snatched away by Grey.

And so begins a timeless tale of transformation and growth. Harper’s initial displeasure at finding herself in this unfamiliar world doesn’t sit well with Rhen, who quickly realizes she isn’t the typical damsel he expected. Their interactions are complicated, to say the least. However, as expected, over time, they both undergo significant changes. Harper’s escape attempts inadvertently lead to her helping others, and this marks the beginning of a remarkable journey.

Without revealing too much of the plot, I must say that Rhen and Harper are the most captivating Beast and Belle duo. The story is brimming with so many elements that you could easily lose yourself in it for an entire day. What struck me most about Harper is that she isn’t the archetypal heroine. It’s rare to encounter a fantasy heroine with medical issues, and as someone with Cerebral Palsy myself, I found her character to be authentic and relatable. The author’s research shines through in Harper’s struggles, making her a more well-rounded and inspiring character.

I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Brigid Kemmerer for delivering the fantasy genre in a way that left me insatiable for more. I eagerly anticipate diving into the rest of the series as soon as life allows. If you’re seeking an enchanting journey of love, adventure, and self-discovery, then “A Curse So Dark and Lonely” is the perfect choice. Click the link below and embark on this extraordinary adventure yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
