Cursed Luck

Cursed Luck (Cursed Luck, #1)Cursed Luck by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a cute, unique story and world this book built! I dove in having just recognized the author with little background and was pleasantly surprised here.

Kennedy is one of three famous curse weaver witches, but she is the one who moved away from their hometown to practice on her own. Her specialty, also, is one that seems to be largely underrated and doesn’t come with the same clout as other magical specialties. It’s weird, then, that she is approached at her antique store twice in a row from folks wanting her to work for them. Both without even the courtesy of an appointment. Aiden, at least, offers her a rather cushy job, but also sort-of pushes her to break into his office to uncurse his mirror.

It ultimately works out for them as they have mutual interests in the form of their siblings in trouble. They team up to begin the most strange treasure hunting adventure ever. And yes, there are lots of Greek mythology elements at play here, not just in the form of Kennedy’s power. Overall, this was a really great setup for what I hope is a very big world. I can’t wait to see where this heads now that things have officially been set in motion for even more future mayhem (or havoc?). Loved it!
