Twilight’s Curse (Twilight Realm Trilogy Book I) by K.M. Wray
4 Stars

The author did a fantastic job of creating her own world. The elves rule five realms, this one takes place in the Twilight Realm. It is a fantasy adventure filled with magic, dragons and fantastical creatures. Phoenix is only thirteen when his parents, the king and queen are murdered. He goes into hiding for his own safety. When the time is right, he will step up and become the king that he was meant to be. Zoe has no love loss for her parents who experimented on her as if she was a lab rat. She manages to escape and stays hidden for many years. Fate brings these two together and with the help of some friends, they attempt to rid the realm of the evil that has spread. I think this is a great start to this series. A very entertaining story.

This was a fantastic start to a magical new series! We start by meeting Phoenix, the crown prince of the Twilight Realm. Unfortunately his parents are murdered in a coup and he and his sister are separated and he is raised in obscurity until he is old enough to take back his crown. We then meet a young Zoe, a virtual prisoner in her parents’ castle, and she is desperate to escape. She begins to realize how her magic can work for her and she is determined to keep it a secret from those who would use it to harm others. The book bounces back and forth between the two characters and from when they are younger until the present time for them. I loved seeing how the story unfolded and the characters grew and matured. Both Zoe and Nix want so badly to feel love and be needed, but they are so scared of being hurt that they keep their guards up. It was so sweet to see how they get to know each other while working to try and save a Kingdom! It was an awesome book to read and I can’t wait to read the rest of the trilogy!

Although this is a young adult fiction, the characters and vivid world building really suck you in. There is great character developments and a page turning plot.

Depending on your reading speed this is a novel that can be enjoyed in a day; it is face paced and as a majority of it takes place over only a couple of days, it is hard to put down.

Looking forward to the next book in the trilogy, I need to know what comes next!!!

Twilight’s Curse is an exciting fantasy novel, suitable for teen and YA readers but also perfectly enjoyable for adults. It is the first book in the Twilight Realm trilogy, set in a world of elves, brownies and magic.

It’s a wonderful, original world with loads of cool details. I particularly like Zoe’s magic tattoos – given to her against her will, but proving too have power beyond what her parents could have guessed. And the tree houses – bigger on the inside and brimming with nature magic.

The narration is first person, switching between Nix and Zoe’s perspectives. The story jumps around in time a bit, filling in the gaps between the initial tragedy that sets off the events of the book and the present day where Nix and Zoe come into their destinies. It’s always made clear whose perspective we’re getting, and where each section fits in the timeline.

This story gets five stars from me, and I would recommend it to fantasy lovers looking for something a bit different! Plenty of magic and adventure to be found here.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a classic YA fantasy novel – it has the character and world building, the magic, everything. It took me a few days to get into, but it is a very good page-turning, easy read once you do. There is a bit of time-jumping, but it is important for building a backstory, and it is done in a way that makes sense, it isn’t jarring or anything. Once you get past that part, the story develops beautifully. If you enjoy fantasy books, definitely give this one a shot!

Seeing your mother killed and your dad sacrificed himself in front of you can really be traumatizing. Then being royalty and having to hide identity for fear of being killed can take a toll. Then it’s time to take back your kingdom back and proclaim yourself king. What an eventful story.

Love love love this fantasy book and can’t wait for the rest of the series.
Most ya fantasy books now days seem to be all the same, but this book was by far a new lind of story.
The books has a great mixture of royalty, elves, magic, brownies, and just everything magical.
The author does an amazing job at story telling and teaching lessons within her story!

Twilight's CurseTwilight’s Curse by K.M. Wray
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nix is an orphaned prince of the Twilight Realm who has to gone into hiding. Zoe, the daughter of the usurpers, ran away from her parents after years of abuse. Both are searching for a way to end the tyranny and set everything back to rights. As their lives and similar missions become intertwined, can they work together or will they let their differences come between them?

This was a fantastic YA read. The characters were well written and the plot moved quickly. My attention was captured from the very beginning and I was rooting for Zoe and Nix to overcome their fears and work together. It saddened me to read of the abuse (not explicitly written) that Zoe had undergone and the trauma that Nix experienced. However, I appreciated that despite these awful experiences, neither character let it define who they were or keep them from doing/seeing the good in others.

I would recommend this book!

Zoe has parents that are up to no good as she knows with experience and pain. Nix’s parents are killed in front of him and he hides for over a decade even though it may seem long isn’t for his nightmare each night. 14 years later Zoe and Nix meet and that will either decide fate to help each other or avoid each other to help take over the kingdom from the wrong hands. I truly enjoyed this book. It came with so many stories and relationships in this first book in the series. I’m ready to pick up the second book!
