Classification: Adult Novel

Summary from Goodreads:

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other twenty-something girls—with one tiny exception: They’re the products of a curse that backfired and gave each of them unique powers that make them, well, a little weird…

The Wird sisters are content to avoid the local vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region—until one of them blows up a vampire in self-defense. Everyone knows vampires aren’t aggressive, and killing one is punishable by death. But soon more bloodlust-fueled attacks occur, and the community wonders if the vampires of Tahoe are plague-ridden.

Celia reluctantly agrees to help Misha, the handsome leader of an infected vampire family. But Aric, the head of the werewolf pack determined to destroy Misha’s family to keep the area safe, warns Celia to stay out of the fight. Caught between two hot alphas, Celia must find a way to please everyone, save everyone, and—oh, yeah—not lose her heart to the wrong guy or die a miserable death. Because now that the evil behind the plague knows who Celia is, he’s coming for her and her sisters.

This Wird girl has never had it so tough.

My Thoughts:

I started this book because a goodreads group I’m part of was reading it and I wanted to join in on the discussion. Plus the book looked really good and I love books that are a mix between urban fantasy and romance.

The book started off really great with characters that I wanted to know more about. I liked Celia from the beginning I felt she was strong enough to handle anything and she certainly stood up for her sisters many times. I enjoyed how each sister had her own personality. Taran was the fiesty one who wouldn’t stand for anyone’s crap, Shayna who was more laid back but could turn anything into a weapon, and Emme who was the sweet one who could heal injuries. I also enjoyed meeting Misha and Aric for the first time. I think I was slightly in love with Aric before we even got to know his name. Everything seemed to be going so perfectly…

I felt at one point the book stopped being fun and started to annoy me to no end. I didn’t like that the plot was very focused on the battles. I mean I enjoy a good fight just like anyone else but I felt some of the fights were pointless and took away from character development. So while I liked all of the characters in the beginning I felt they sort of lost touch with me half way through the book. Celia started to bug me because she just kept repeating over and over how she hadn’t been with many guys and she would let Aric push her around. Aric became the jerk who didn’t mind when Celia and her powerful sisters helped him win a fight but would always tell her she should have stayed away from the danger! Plus the romance never had room to grow since Aric and Celia never really had time alone together. Then there was the whole thing where each sister seemed to “grow” powers over the course of the book. It seemed that whenever it was convenient a sister would suddenly have an extra power to handle the bad infected vampires that they were fighting in the numerous battle scenes.

Overall, this book started with a lot of promise and I did enjoy a few things from the book but several things started to bug me as the book went on. I wanted answers and instead I got stalled out by battles and no character development. At this point I’m not sure if I will continue with this series.
