Cursed (Touched Part I)
By: S.A. Archer
Published October 28, 2011 by Ravynheart Publishing
Available Format:  ebook

My Rating:  ★★★★★

In Cursed, Part I of the Touched series, we’re introduced to London Eyer, a private investigator who often works with the paranormal.  A vampire friend has introduced her to Rico, a Sidhe, and during their first encounter he Touches her, leaving her instantly addicted to his magic.  She then has no choice but to work for him to find out why the Changelings are out for Rico’s blood.

For someone with a busy schedule, I really appreciate anything I can complete in one sitting.  At just 10,000 words, Cursed is perfect.  The story itself is well-written and intriguing -- satisfying yet leaves you immediately wanting the next in the series.  It’s like a dark, adult fairy tale, and it is fantastic!

I am already fascinated by the dangerous world London lives in and all the different characters and personalities that join her in this world.  Archer does a wonderful job putting all these elements together in a subtle way that makes the short tale flow seamlessly.  This is the first of Archer’s work I have read, and I can already tell that each additional story will only further round out and highlight the foundation he lays in the beginning of the series.  I am anticipating how all the different pieces will come together in the end, and I cannot wait to dive into the next installment of Touched.

See you tomorrow!!!
