I was happy to be invited to participate in the blog tour for CURSE AND CONSEQUENCE, a delightful tale by Savannah Jezowski. Keep reading for more on the book, the author, and my review!
When Love visits Ravenhead Hall, sparks fly…quite literally.
Miss Rea Abernathy only wants to honor the family who has taken her under their wing, rescuing her from a life of poverty. But thanks to two determined suitors, she finds herself in a state far worse than the one from which her benefactress saved her.
When Mr. Sedgwick Whitby sets his sights on his mother’s sweet-tempered pig keeper, his orderly life is thrown into chaos: Rea’s station is less–than-desirable, and another gentleman may be pursuing her. Hoping to get his annoyingly charming twin brother out of the way, Sedgwick purchases a simple curse from a disreputable faery which consequently plunges them all into a misfortune far more serious than troubles of the heart.
With time running out to break the curse and tempers flying high, can Sedgwick and Rea set things right and find love after all? Jane Austen meets dragons in this frolicking fantasy romance about a comely pig keeper, two wealthy gentlemen, and the curse binding them all together. Perfect for fans of Diana Wynne Jones and Gail Carson Levine.
pooled ink Review
They had me at “Jane Austen meets dragons” haha. The moment I read that I knew I had to read it for myself. And now that I have I must say that this really was a fun delightful read! Equal parts historical romance and fantasy adventure with plenty of humor woven throughout. I thought that the blending of mischievous magic into this English era of reserved propriety worked quite well and lent itself to establishing a tale with wit and charm.
Curses wrought over squabbles, jealousy, and sheer bad luck ignite the twisting journey of straight-laced Sedgwick, reckless Hugh, and sweet but clever Rea. They must face each other’s grievances and deal with the consequences if they have any hope of reversing the curse that has transformed the dashing Hugh into a little boy and the innocent Rae into a (small adorable) dragon. A light read that will have you enthralled with a gentle smile upon your face as you delve into this quirky tale full of faeries, dragons, and second chances.
