The Casquette Girls (The Casquette Girls #1) by Alys Arden

Summary: Seven girls tied by time.
Five powers that bind.
One curse to lock the horror away.
One attic to keep the monsters at bay.

After the storm of the century rips apart New Orleans, sixteen-year-old Adele Le Moyne wants nothing more than her now silent city to return to normal. But with home resembling a war zone, a parish-wide curfew, and mysterious new faces lurking in the abandoned French Quarter, normal needs a new definition.

As the city murder rate soars, Adele finds herself tangled in a web of magic that weaves back to her own ancestors. Caught in a hurricane of myths and monsters, who can she trust when everyone has a secret and keeping them can mean life or death? Unless . . . you’re immortal.

 

My Review:  Lately, I have been in a reading slump… sure I have found books that are easy to read and that I adored, but nothing that has made me want to start reading book after book.  I have had a bit of book burnout.

Well that was until this book.  I admit, I was sucked into this book because of the beautiful cover… but I am so jaded by beautiful covers I just knew this would be cover fraud.

Boy was I wrong.  I was very wrong about many of the assumptions I made regarding this novel.

Yes this book has vampires, witches… a love triangle… but you know what it freaking works.   It is not cliche… it is freaking amazing writing with characters so complex you will love every word you read.   This book was non stop and kept me guessing.  I finally realized the plot twist and I did not want to stop reading.

Oh did I mention this book is on Kindle Unlimited??? yes my dears you can listen to this amazing novel for free.

I loved every character… even the naughty ones.   Plus this book will make you want to book a flight to New Orleans asap.

The vampire and voodoo lore in this book make it such a fun treat, I can assure you that you will not want to put this book down!

Just escape the cubicle already
