Casually Cursed by Kimberly Frost

Southern Witch, Book 5

Synopsis: Tammy Jo rarely sets a toe outside Texas, but when she learns her mother is in trouble, Tammy is determined to save her—even if it means going to hell and back…

Fresh off her engagement to wizard Bryn Lyons, Tammy Jo is surprised to make another new family connection when she meets the twin sister she never knew she had. After being spirited away to the fae kingdom of Never as an infant, Kismet has finally escaped, and arrived in Duvall, Texas, with some terrible news:  their mother, Marlee, is a prisoner of the Seelie fae.

Crossing the ocean to battle the fae isn’t Tammy Jo’s idea of a romantic getaway, but Bryn refuses to let her go alone—as do her aunt Edie and her ex-husband Zach. Unfortunately, their plot to free Marlee is foiled when they are caught by the fae queen. And the only chance the queen gives them to save Marlee’s life may be an impossible quest…

Review: I really appreciated the previous volumes and I was very happy to see that Ada edition also had released some volumes in French! I bought this last novel when it came out, but it took me a long time to read it. So of course, I forgot a lot of events in the story as usual …

Tammy Jo gets to know early in the story her twin sister Kismet who was abducted by the fae when she was still a baby. The meeting is pretty great and I was eager to learn more about her. But it’s true that I was surprised to see their differences and to see how impulsive Kismet was. Yet it is true that it is quite touching to see K. understand that she is no longer alone in this world. But now, her arrival also announces new changes. Indeed, it seems that Marlee, the mother of twins finds herself in a complicated situation in the Never and Tammy Jo is determined to go there to understand what exactly is happening. But she will not be alone because Eddie, Bryn, but also Zach, will be there to accompany her on this new journey.

I really enjoyed seeing more of the Never after hearing so much about it, seeing how this kingdom was governed. However, it is true that as often in all novels, this place is not simple even if it contains extraordinary things. Tammy Jo will have to face some obstacles but also to protect those who accompany her to be able to advance. I really liked to discover the parents of the two girls and I admit that it is not really what I expected.

I struggled to get into the story but finally I had a good time with it. I do not know if there will be more one day but in any case it was a nice series to read.

  1. Neat that this one takes place in the world of the fae. I want to read more stories about them. Tammy Jo and her family sound like great characters. I’m glad you could get it in French.

  2. I loved this series; the two books before this were amazing for me. This one was interesting. I want more Bryn and Tammy Jo time. I don’t need Zach around all the time. The novella after this is good and about 5 years in the future. Again, I wish for more Bryn. Anne – Books of My Heart
