I didn’t think the Forgotten Brotherhood could get any better or more intense. I was wrong. Bjorn Cursed grabbed me by the emotions and never let go until the final page.
Bjorn has endured centuries of ravaging pain, the need for revenge, and a loss so great that even killing those who deserve death only taps the surface of his anger, his pain. Now, he’s been challenged to find a woman who has escaped the afterlife – and kill her. Remember, the gods do nothing good for anyone, not even those they created. So, this is a double-edged sword moment for Bjorn. Because the woman he’s supposed to track down and destroy is his beloved wife, Anja.
Beyond the inconceivable joy at finding each other, Bjorn and Anja have battles to fight for there is an enemy out to destroy Anja, discovering just why Bjorn was sent to kill his wife, or how and why she escaped the afterlife in the first place, and a future to fight for because neither one will ever leave their beloved’s side again, this time even death will not separate them should it come to that.
I couldn’t put Bjorn Cursed down. It’s hard to realize that the events in this story (aside from the long separation) only took such a short time. We’ll get to see and catch up with all of the previous couples from the Forgotten Brotherhood series. And while each story can stand on its own, I would still recommend reading from the start to get the entire background of this intense world. There certainly are twists and turns along the way, sizzling steamy moments for Anja and Bjorn, and a battle for their lives to be won. I enjoyed myself so much back in this world, and I’m hoping it’s not the end for there is still more that I’d like to learn. Time will tell. But, if you love an intense paranormal romantic suspense styled story that will keep you glued to the pages from start to finish – you’ll want to pick up Bjorn Cursed right now.
