Bjorn Cursed by N.J. Walters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This installment of the Forgotten Brotherhood series can, just like all the others, be read as a standalone, but we get a little more investment if you've been with this crew since the start. There's a slightly larger play going on behind the scenes, so in order to put the pieces together, or guess at motivation, you should start from the beginning (also - the books are great!).
This book handles Bjorn's unresolved guilt and deceased family. As the father of werewolves, cursed by the gods to go on a killing rampage to avenge his family's murder, he's got some baggage. Unlike all the other books, we don't go through the attraction building, misunderstanding phases that seem to be required for these types of books. Instead, Bjorn's dead wife somehow ends up back in the real world unchanged. They dive right into being together again, so we get a double dose of smutty goodness, but no real buildup there.
The mystery here is who is playing against who, why everyone is out to get them, and how they will manage to wrestle some happiness out of a pretty crummy situation. While we don't get all the answers here, we do get the expected familiar faces, some surprises, and a nice ending.
