Publisher's Summary

What are you waiting for? NA paranormal fantasy at its best by international best-selling author Tara Brown.

Someone is drugging the fairest of them all and hurting them in the dark corners of the forests around Port Mackenzie - shrouding the town in mystery and darkness. But nothing is as it seems. In the dark corners of the small town, there is also a light, a cure to what ails the sick. But everything comes at a cost, a price that must be paid. Aimee James discovers that cost the moment she dies. She discovers there are worse things than dying. She finds herself cursed. Discover how the Devil's Roses all starts because in the end it is the beginning that chooses who we will become and what side we will take.

Note from the author - This is the newly edited version. It won't ever be perfect because this is where I started; this was my first book. I don't even recognize the style of writing anymore, I have changed so much. So it is nice for me to be able to look at this and see where I started, how much I have grown as an author. We have gotten it as close to perfect as we can without ruining the experience of a debut novel by me, Tara Brown. Hope you enjoy, and thank you so much for listening to my beginning.

can't even finish it

I only have an 1 hr 25 min left and I don't want to finish it because of the main character got soooooo annoying. 1. I'm not a fan of sister rivalry ( I can understand a little childish rivalry). I just don't support talking down about sisters/females. For example, she called her sister (slut, satan, stupid, and let other people talk bad about her sister and agreeing). 2. I don't like the main character arrogance and how she thinks she is smarter than the average teenager. I actually thought she was quite stupid and didn't have any common sense. Maybe it was because she was young but I'm tired of the teenager romance supernatural novels where the main character has no sense. Every main character is worried about is losing their virginity/getting a boyfriend vs. not worrying about the demons trying to kill you and your family but congratulations on losing your virginity soooo cool B-).

Judgy and kind of selfish

The main character is super hard to swallow because of her snooty judgmental way of thinking of anyone who isn’t like her...can’t even get through he book.

fun listen

The narrator was great! I always appreciate when characters are well defined. The story was hard to get into in the beginning. I know some people had trouble getting past the main character's personality. She is a lot to take on, and the relationship with her twin sister is so complicated and annoying. but I guess the story wouldn't have been the same without that rivalry. I really liked the end though. I have mixed feelings about the love story. It's just a sad one, but beautiful. The protagonist grows throughout the book, so even though some people might feel annoyed or don't want to continue listening, I say give it a try. it won't disappoint.

No. Just.... no.

This was a really terrible book. The characters are vapid. The narrator’s accent is indescribably bad. I made it four hours in and couldn’t listen further. I’m leaving this review so that someone else doesn’t make the same mistake that I did.

Great.

Based on the author’s note, I feel like she I apologizing for her first book not being “good enough.” However, I’m not really sure what her grievance is with it. I thought the book was great, well written, and had an interesting story.

I wanted to like this

but I didnt. I pushed through about 2/3 of the book hoping the writing would get better, but it didnt. I have rarely quit before the end but in this case I couldn't force myself to listen anymore. The teen angst, immediate love, etc was just too much.

Couldn't even finish...

Only a couple hours left and I can't finish. The main character is a b*tch and thinks she's better than everyone else. She is unbearable. The rest is just so cliche that you know everything that's going to happen. It could potentially be my mood but I have tried to persevere and just can't.

This storyline got really strange at the end.

I think the only reason I finished this book is because I wanted to know how it would end.

wow

really enthralling. wish the ending had more to do with the 2 love interests and not been so cliffhangish like there was going to be a sequel which I've started book 2 and it has a different protagonist so idk if the previous characters will be included or not. all together a great read. 😊

Cursed but this series is really a readers blessing

Tara Brown is a phenomenal author and The Devils Roses is a tremendous series. Julie McKay expresses the true soul of these books as her narration pulls the listener into the scenery of each chapter. Cursed is the first book in this series and you will not be disappointed and will eagerly download the series in book form and audiobooks too. A great read, well worth the money spent. A series on my annual holiday reread list💕
