A skilled knife fighter since the age of nine, Chalice knows what it’s like to live life on the edge—precariously balanced between the dark and the light. But the time has come to choose. The evil sorcerer who kidnapped her over a decade ago requires her superhuman senses to steal a precious magical artifact…or she must suffer the consequences.
Desperate to break the curse that enslaves her, Chalice agrees. But it is only with the help of Aydin— her noble warrior-protector—that she will risk venturing beyond the veil to discover the origins of her power. Only for him will she dare to fully embrace her awesome talents. For a deadly duel is at hand, and Chalice alone will have to decide between freedom…and the love of her life
Knight’s Curse was a modern-day tale of high adventure and virtue – the quest for what is right, and the ultimate battle over evil.
Chalice grew up in a monastery after her mother died after childbirth, and only met her father when he returned to claim her, and ensured she could never leave his side again. Chalice knows the man is not truly her father, but there was little she could do to overthrow him. Chalice is bonded with a gargoyle and cursed, so if she is parted from him the curse will turn her into one herself. Chalice is trained as a thief to procure artefacts and objects of mythical power. The time comes for Chalice to decide what she has to do – give in to the dark side, or take a leap of faith and shoot for the light.
Knight’s Curse was full of action and mythical legends, an epic read. The light romance between Aydin and Chalice was tender and steamy all at once, and left the reader aching for more. There hasn’t been a fantasy/action book quite like Knight’s Curse in quite some time, and I doubt there ever will be.
An awesome read for anyone who loves modern day fairy tales and legends.
