    1 thought on “Cursed

    1. Comic book action hero and shallow plotThis is a good book for some fast, gory action In fact, it s non stop action, no character or story development We don t know Mac Brennan, but we learn he never gets hungry, thirsty or tired, never has to use a bathroom or sleep, never goes into shock, never gets seriously injured We know he expresses his thoughts almost entirely in similes They flew at me like dive bombers The door was like the lair of a dragon I was like a dog with a bone And so on And so [...]

    2. All of a sudden, before he knew it, in less than a blink of an eyeI only made it through 54% of the book I didn t measure it empirically, but it felt like there wasn t page in the book that didn t include someone getting hit in the head, shot, stabbed, set on fire, run over, cursed, blown up, irradiated, beaten to a pulp, eviscerated, etc The writing wasn t terrible, just the content No character development, just a lot of spontaneous, and unexplained violence The main character is barely 2 dime [...]

    3. While listening to this all I could think of is that this author must be a fan of Jim Butcher cause it really had that sort of feel to me Not that that is a bad thing cause I love The Dresen Files It just sort of falls flat here.Mac Brennan wakes up in a dumpster and has no memories except what his name is or at least what he thinks it is His arm is black and it has red tattoos on it and he has no idea how it happened or what it is.When he helps a young woman get away from some men, at first she [...]

    4. This had the possibility of being a good book, but had a few major hangups 1 It s backbone is all references to other books, comics, and stories We aren t talking a peppering here, we are talking a whole goddamn spice rack With maybe an extra spice rack thrown in for good measure Die Hard Twilight Marvel Comics DC Comics LOTR Etc Everything in the book was a reference to something else.2 Emotional Basketball I was scared , You look scared , He looks scared If it takes you 2 3 pages to have multi [...]

    5. I need Holy cow This is a no holds barred, non stop action thrill ride the likes you ve never seen before in urban fantasy Mac Brennan is a gun shooting, hellfire wielding badass with amnesia who battles werewolves, gargoyles and demons in order to save the day and find out just who he is and what the hell is going on The voice, dialogue and humor are spot on, and the twists and turns will keep you guessing I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I can t WAIT for the next one

    6. A wild nonstop action packed devilish ride I love how the pacing of this novel kept going, always keeping me on the edge of my seat I read that someone compared it to a comic and I would agree It was like a dark fantasy comic It actually reminded me of Constantine Mac was a humorous antihero that was fun to read I m interested to see where the story goes from here I received a copy in exchange for a review.

    7. A dark heroThis story is like a magical Jason Bourne movie Mac has no memories except who he is, which is better than Bourne s predicament Even though dealing with demons would usually be a stupid move, it sounds like Mac had no choice if he wanted to save someone close to him He is a natural hero but he is dark and doesn t mind killing to get the job done I had a hard time with a few things The memory issues made it hard to follow sometimes Also, he talks in his head a lot especially when he fe [...]

    8. If you want a book that is just action scene after action seen this is perfect for you it was a very quick book to read though It just wasn t my idea of a good book what I love is characters I wont be reading the rest of the series sorry.

    9. When Mac Brennan wakes up in a dumpster the only thing that he can remember about himself is his name It also doesn t help that he s naked as the day he was born and that his left arm is covered in a black tar like substance which seems to turn red when he is in peril Mac knows that there s something he needs to accomplish and that time is running out but he has no idea what that might possibly be Before Mac has a chance to even remotely figure any of this all out, he finds that he has angered a [...]

    10. This is a delightful new series by Cipriano It is full of suspense, magic, witches, werewolves, vampires, and demons and the need to do whatever it takes to protect those you love, even if you don t remember who they are, or even who you are for that matter In Mac Brennan s search to find why he has this demon arm that has powers of its own sometimes and who he sold his soul to, who he is supposed to save, or what he is meant to do with these new powers In the meantime, his humanity won t allow [...]

    11. Cursed The Thrice Cursed Mage 1 by J.A Cipriano is book one in the Trice Cursed Mage series and it was awesome Thrilling, fascinating, magic filled, exciting, suspense filled, and crazy is what this book is The guy wakes up in a dumpster, no memory of how he got there or why, and now he has power But he gets mixed up in something over his head in with demons that want him dead Great job

    12. This was a different book but in a good way It is a good paranormal fantasy read as it has a little of everything werewolves, vampires, demons, etc This is my first time reading anything by this author and I am thinking I will read the next book in this series The characters lacked some depth for me, I felt like I couldn t connect with them But the creativity wow A for creativity

    13. this was good had a lot of action so it was fun for that reason im not a big fan of urban fantasy and this wasnt really my favorite when it comes to that but it wasnt a bad story either the plot was good the characters were good so overall i wiould recommend it to others and im glad i got to review it

    14. Many levels of nope I wanted to like this, but the writing is so clunky and the characters so shallow I just can t finish it.

    15. This was a good book I thought the main character was very interested and his interest in and reference to the horror comic book genres were fun.I know I am likely a minority in this, but I am truly weary of plots involving finding the missing spouse usually straight man s wife and child It seems like a child always has to also be missing For me this has become a very tiresome clich Surely there are OTHER motivations a character could have.It is rather telling when I find on my Kindle that 40 pe [...]

    16. Cursed The Thrice Cursed Mage, 1by J.A CiprianoA quick and reasonably enjoyable read What I liked a I liked the main character and found the surrounding characters interestingb There certainly was adequate danger and action maybe a bit too much c Easy to readd Interesting situationsWhat I didn t like a And yes, as usual not always , this cost the book a star the hated cliff hanging ending Yes, I know the next couple of books in the series are available, but why should I read a book that the auth [...]

    17. Fun and fantastical We wake up with the hero at the start of the book, not knowing anything Who is the hero, why is he in this situation and what can he do about it Amnesia means the answers to these questions come to him, and therefore to us, slowly as the story unravels.Mac, the hero, has memories of non personal things such as social media, geography, and also piecemeal use of firearms and other items He eventually figuratively meets his inner demon cat who reminds me of the Cheshire cat from [...]

    18. The protagonist in J.A Cipriano s Cursed reminds me of Harry Dresden with his smooth, self deprecating voice and darkly antagonistic world But the similarities end as Mac Brennan learns and uses his destructive powers this is a gory tale with crueler themes The story s set in an almost familiar world where vampires and werewolves roam unrecognized, congregate at the occasional safe cafe location, and perhaps allow mysterious entities to inhabit their minds But Mac s first aim is to find out who [...]

    19. I found this book to be interesting as far as it goes, and while I wouldn t object to reading in the series, I m certainly not going hunting for them If I run across one later on, fine, I ll read it, but this just doesn t fit what I like to read.Sure, there was lots of action, and sure, there s a seriously overpowered hero that can tank with the best of them, but that s basically all that happens here If you like lots and lots of action, and no plot, then sure, have at it If you re looking for [...]

    20. An imaginative and quite good story involving vampires, werewolves, demons, druids and humans who gain demonic powers through deals with the demons The story begins with Mac Brennan waking up in a dumpster with no memories Clear and succinct writing provides all the excitement and action a reader could handle The story arc has a distinct ending, but leaves the door open for , making this a good stand alone book as well as the introduction to a series The descriptions are detailed to create an en [...]

    21. About half way through, I realised I wasn t actually enjoying this book, but thanks to how short it was, I decided to finish it anyway It could benefit greatly from some editing making sure that some words weren t repeated 3 times within 3 consecutive sentences and similar small, but irritating sins Also.what s with the parable and comparisons Almost everything he mentioned was compared to something else until it grew a bit ridiculous in some instances As for the plot, I liked the basic idea, bu [...]

    22. This book to me was a quick read filled with action scene after action scene after action scene you get the picture throughout the book I didn t feel as if the story was great but it was alright I would recommend this to those that like comic book reads because that is the feel I got Wham Bam Pop situations where the main character surprisingly gets out of situation with some magical power he knows nothing about I didn t hate the plot and would read by this author.

    23. wow such a lot happened.he wakes up in a dumpster no memory and his arm is black as the ace of spades and also sporting tattoosl he knows he has to rescue a mother and son but first he has to figure out who what and where he isd then he stumbles across another woman in need of rescuingtion packed book and an easy writing style that keeps you reading even if page after page there is action to numerous to mention or remember

    24. Overall pretty good, liked the storyline and the fact that he would throw jokes in regarding other fantasy books, made it fun I liked the characters sense of humor, could have done without the swearing though Maybe if he would have come up with another type of witty vocabulary instead of the swearing would make it fun.

    25. Non Stop ActionMac lost his memory, made a deal with a demon for power, and gets caught up in helping a young mother and her son to the detriment of accomplishing what he originally set out to do but can t remember I like the action and story I look forward to the next book.

    26. MemoryMac Brennan awakens in a trash bin with no memory beyond his name He meets and defends Sera, and later her young son John Mac attempts to discover his memory Good plot and charactorization.

    27. A different sort of fantasy.The book is fast paced, no useless exposition.I really enjoyed the reluctant hero a flawed individual who made a bad choice for a good cause.

    28. It s a ripoff of Jim butcher without the talent and with little character development and deus ex machina

    29. Cold, cruel, violent in all the right waysThis is how an antihero is supposed to be written Well done Excellent pacing, plot, and poise Worth your time you wont put it down.
