Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Shadow Cursed is a beautiful tale of a thief named Bolen and how he lands in an unexpected situation and ultimately overcomes it. The character of Bolen is developed beautifully and I felt the connection with him almost instantly. The plot is quite simple but it's simplicity is quite mesmerizing! It might sound weird but this book had an odd satisfying feel to it, the way fairy tales have on children. It made me feel that the world is a good place and that it's not as wicked as we believe it is. This book made me feel like a child who is just hoping for a good ending throughout the entire read. I wanted to see Bolen happy at the end more than anything.
This book had me under it's spell and that too a really fine one! It has some really good surprises which makes it a must read for everyone.
Shadow Cursed is a powerful short and simple read. I'd recommend it to everyone who loves to read a fine book.
