Short Synopsis
Ember McWilliams got a second chance at life after being brought back from the dead, but it's not what she expected.

Full Synopsis
Dying sucks, and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies.

Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things—including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming that Ember's curse is a gift, she thinks he's a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she's more than interested. There's just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities weird even her out.

When Ember learns that the accident that turned her into a freak may not have been an accident at all, she's not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she gets to losing not only her heart but her life. For real this time.

"Armentrout puts a fresh twist on this occult tale, creating a paranormal setting that has the right mix of suspense, mystery, romance, and adventure. Gripping characters with an X-Men feel drive the plot, leaving readers wondering who is innocent and who is guilty."----School Library Journal

"I enjoyed the mysterious nature of Cursed and even though I suspected correctly who was behind the various activities taking place, I enjoyed how Jennifer L. Armentrout brought clarity to all of the complex issues Ember was trying to solve in the story's conclusion, some of which I didn't see coming." ---Kindles & Wine Book Blog
