#BookReview: The Curse and the Prince (Kingdom of Curses and Shadows #2) by @Day_Leitao

Synopsis: Of course things didn’t go as planned at the Royal Games. When do things go as planned? 

Now Zora is on the run, and has to join Griffin in order to retrieve a powerful magical artifact that might undo her valley’s curse. For the first time in her life, she has real hope for her people. 

Problem is, for the second time in her life, she’s falling for someone she shouldn’t. Finding a hidden object is hard enough on its own, she could do without the heart palpitations and lack of air. And she could certainly focus better without the constant memory of his lips on hers, his arms around her, his touch, his feel... Gaah! See? How can she avoid pursuers and decipher enigmatic writings when her brain has been turned to mush? Painful, hopeless mush. 

But the real trouble is that there’s more than one curse in the kingdom. And not enough objects or time to get rid of them all…


Rating: 5 Stars
My Review:  
I thought I almost died from the cliffhanger in the first book, but the ending to this one was even more suspenseful. I found myself at a loss for words when I reached the end. I'm a little heart broken that I have to wait so long for the final piece of the story. Once again Day Leitao has drawn me in and hooked me with this magical story. In this book we get to grow closer to the characters and fall just a little more in love with each one. I loved watching the characters grow and develop.  I especially loved watching Zora open herself up to the opportunity to love. I was surprised to find myself liking Alegra/Riadne and starting to love Larzen by the end. We learn some of the history and legends behind the curse on Zora's beloved Dark Valley and Griffin's curse. And there is so much action in this book its almost impossible to put it down. 

Originally from Brazil, Day Leitao lives in Montreal, Canada. She likes stories with action, humor, and heart.
