[Review] Cursed by Trakena Prevost


Half-succubus Jazz Watkins spends her nights knee-deep in Chicago drug dens hunting Suecai—an evil kind of incubi and succubae who devour the souls of humans. But when a leader of the Suecai curses her, Jazz has to track him down. Either she kills him before the curse burns through her, or she’ll become a full-fledged, out of control, soul-sucking monster.

She’s got a handful of weeks, absolutely no leads, and only her sexy best guy-friend, Khan, covering her back. But will the growing attraction she feels for Khan get in the way of her mission to save her own life?

This book has sat on my kindle for quite a while. It was possibly one of the first books I received once I began to sign up to promotion sites.
Nothing made me not want to read it, it was just that more and more ARC's were added to the pile and it got pushed to the back. It was one of the main reasons I ended up creating a spreadsheet, so I had something to work on.
The story intrigued me from the Synopsis.
It did take a while for me to get into it, and that is not mainly down to the book, but life in general but over the last few days I have been unable to put it down.
The story follows Jasmine, a Demi-Dorgai who hunt out evil Suecai who feed of human's chi and kill them. Only, the Gunshi has a plan to kidnap Jazz and unite both her powerful family and his. After a failed attempt, the Gunshi fails and it's not until the next does he get what he wants and that is to turn Jazz into a full Dorgai.
Through the story we follow Jazz and her erratic behavior-due to wanting revenge- and watch her deal with not only her upcoming change and mission to reverse it, but also her feelings for Khan, her childhood friend and love.
Some of the scenes, mainly the battle one's confused me but it was certainly a good read.
Sticking with it paid off and I'm glad I didn't give up.
