The Hollow CurseBen and Alysia are the current incarnations of soul mates cursed in a previous life. Their curse was that they were to be separated by a gulf of years and social norms until they fully accept their love, share a lifetime, and raise a child together.
This book follows them through some of their incarnations and shows how the spirit that now inhabits Dorry, Alysia's college girlfriend, who was the originator of the curse in a previous incarnation, has hounded them through life after life. The story plays out in the current day with the characters experiencing their past lives starting at the beginning of the curse as Albert, Bernidine and Darius in the fifteen hundreds.
Duke Darius forces Bernidine, a woman half his age who is already pledged to wed her true love, Sir Albert, to marry him. When Albert infiltrates Darius' court, and has an affair with his beloved Bernadine, Darius forces a reluctant witch to cast the curse that he feels will keep the young lovers apart forever. Unable to directly oppose Darius, because of what he will do to her coven mates if she does, the witch works a clause into the spell that if Albert and Bernadine live a life and raise a child together, the curse will be broken.
This story had me intrigued from the beginning. I loved the story & how each character became the next. Most of the characters are easy to love. The story-line kept me fascinated til the very end, even if it wasn't a "quick read". Well worth reading..Can't wait to read more by this author
I rate this book 4 stars
