Cursed (Shadow Souls Book One)

Young Adult

PARANORMAL:  Tessa Egan is prophesized to become the most powerful witch ever known. With this proclamation comes numerous individuals hunting her, despite the fact that her powers have just awakened and she's not sure how to use them. As she tries to figure all of this out and stay one step ahead of her enemies, she finds herself torn between guardian brothers Alec and Josh. The soulmate of a guardian is the only one who should be able to see their guardian marks, but Tessa can see marks on BOTH brothers. What does this mean? Will Tessa figure out who she is meant to be with, and avoid the legions determined to eliminate her?

"Cursed" is the first book in a promising series, featuring two very strong males trying to protect a female coming into her own powers. The action starts almost immediately and carries on right until “The End”. Readers will be able to feel a connection with Tessa and in a roundabout way relate to what she is going through. They will also wish they had two strong males like Alec and Josh looking out for them! Some aspects of the dialogue felt unnatural; however, this doesn't take too much away from the overall enjoyment of the book. Tracy Goodwin is off to a good start with her Shadow Souls series.
