“Normal” is something I could only dream of being called. “Mental” or “screwed up” is what I’m labelled. But actually feeling other people’s pain does that to a girl. I’m not an empath. I’m crazy! That is until I meet one guy who makes it all go away.
The problem is, he’s even crazier than me. At least I thought that in the beginning before the coincidences became undeniable. But, if what he was saying were true, he would not only become my saviour, he would also open my eyes to a world filled with angels, demons, witches, and an ancient curse that I’m caught smack bang in the middle of.
Either way, I already knew he’d be the death of me.
Overall, I’m intrigued by the storyline. Even though I read something similar to the story, which I can’t remember the title, I still loved the mystery behind Zoe’s curse. It hooked me from the beginning to the end of this book, desperately trying to figure out why she’s cursed and how to end it.
The instant love in the story between Zoe and Marcus is cringe-worthy, but it’s understandable because this time, Zoe came back differently – She remembers her previous love life with Marcus. So, I’ll pardon that 😉. I hope I can read more about their previous life story.
All my life I’ve dreamed of the man who would be the one to free me from my curse. Turns out Marcus is real, and so are the angels, demons, and witches that are trying to get their hands on me. And don’t even get me started on those Soul Scrapers.
What I didn’t realize, and neither did Marcus, was that Justin had lied. Someone wants me dead to stop an earth shattering ancient prophecy that nobody actually believes in from coming true. Pity for them, I’m not giving up easily, and I discover something that no one saw coming.
Severed Hearts is a young adult paranormal romance that takes place in a thrilling supernatural world. Discover the amazing fantasy universe author Kelly Carrero has made fans fall for! Book 1, Severed Wings, is also available now!
The truth is out, at least for Zoe in this book. Now we only need to find out what Marcus is and the end game. The story is engaging, and I liked that there’s not much recap on the previous book because I read it continuously and do not need to waste time reading the fact that I already knew.
There’s some repetitive statement – between Zoe and Marcus, and it’s like the author ran out of ideas to express the love between these two love birds. Some plots that I thought I knew, but I was wrong, especially facts about Abby. I can’t believe she’s that good. I thought she might be in team Morgana 😆. I hope she does not disappoint me.
For three hundred and sixty-seven years, Morgana has trapped both Marcus and me in a cloud of torment and deception, making us believe I was cursed and Marcus was a traitor to his angelic existence. Neither of us knew our true identity—until now.
I am not who they say I am. I am not the girl Marcus couldn’t collect. I am not the light, but I will do everything within my power to make sure darkness falls.
I am the key, the one who will unlock our destinies.
There is nothing more to add to Zoe/Lulu’s relationship with Marcus, especially after the revelation and what happened in this book. They completed each other. I’m anxious to find out what will happen to them in the final book and if they will have a happy ending.
Another character that deserves attention is Abby. I liked her, and if it’s not too late, I’m hoping to read more about Abby and Marcus’s relationship. They seem very closed, and I hope she does not harbour feeling towards Marcus. Hoping she’s his guardian demon and not one that will bring them down😂.
War is inevitable.
My enemy decided his fate when he cursed us to live an eternity of sorrow and heartache. But I’m not the naive girl I once was.
The truth is out, and so is the knowledge of the spell that will finally free me from Marcus’s light. There’s just one problem standing in our way—God.
Too bad for him, I don’t give up easily. I’ll find a way for Marcus and I to have our happily ever after, or I’ll die trying.
I sometimes got confused and have to reread, especially scenes from the island. I felt like some scenes weren’t told in detail, rushing for the end. The fight was over quickly with help from veils jumping, tricks, and finally, an easy solution to end the battle.
Anyway, as long as they have a HEA, I’m happy to accept the ending. I just wish that the author included a prologue. I would love to read them caring for Scarlet and Ruby, dealing with Lucy’s mom and the big question about the darkness in her soul.
