~Waiting on Wednesday~ Cursed (Beholder #1)

                “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:

Cursed (Beholder #1) by Christina Bauer
Out: 3/29

From Goodreads:
                Most days, Elea couldn’t care less about having Necromancer magick.  Who needs to conjure skeletons and spirits when you’re a farm girl?  Elea only uses her powers to speed up chores and scare off suitors. 

                Everything changes when the evil Necromancer Tsar curses Elea.  Now, Elea has five years left before she burns as a ghost, tortured for all eternity.  They say there’s nothing she can do, but Elea disagrees.  She decides to embrace her Necromancer powers, train as a magickal assassin, and kill the Tsar…All before his curse kills her.  Impossible as it may sound, Elea thinks she has it in the bag, but then everything goes horribly wrong.

                That’s when a handsome mage named Rowan steps up to help.  Elea wants an ally, but she doesn’t need all the mixed-up feelings that come along with Rowan’s crooked smile.

                An assassination mission is no time to fall in love, but Elea’s heart may have other ideas…

Why I’m Waiting:
                Okay this is an Ink Monster book and we all know how I LOVE their other books!  I have read all of them so far and been blown away by them so I’m all for this new series!  So aside from my automatic need for this book, the plot sounds super interesting.  Cursed to have five years before you turn into a ghost and are tortured for all of eternity!  Necromancy, which I’m developing a bit of a fascination with in books as I’ve stumbled into it more and more and I’m liking it.  Oh and magickal assassinations and ill-timed romance.  Yep I need this in my life ASAP!

                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your WoW as well so I can check it out!


  1. OK, this one sounds great. I will have to add it to my wishlist. The necromancy element interests me as well. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Happy to spread the word. necromancy is both creepy and interesting :)

  2. I always find books with necromancers super fun (or super scary) to read :) Hope the wait for your WOW isn't too painful!

    My WOW

    1. Haha yes it's so funny how it can be on both sides of the spectrum!

  3. I hope you enjoy it I am passing on this one. (sorry).

    1. Hey not everyone will be on board with everything!
