Review: The Curse of Gremdon by Ciara Knight and GIVEAWAY!



The Curse of Gremdon
by Ciara Knight
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

The Curse of Gremdon by Ciara Knight is an adult fiction novel about warriors Arianna and Tardon that takes place in a world where marriage is forbidden. As an elite male warrior, Tardon is basically given anything and everything he wants by the omnipotent Elders. The entire kingdom is forced by the Elders to live within the palace walls because of a curse that turns people into horrible monsters.

The extremely controlling Elders do not allow anyone to threaten their regime and vilify anyone who does dare to pose even a hint of a problem. When the Elders run out of a magical elixir, Arianna and Tardon are charged with venturing to the Tree of Life and risking the very real possibility of contracting the curse.

The dictatorship they live in is very much a male dominated society. Even though both Arianna and Tardon are excellent warriors, only male Tardon is presented with a never ending supply of ‘gifts’ from the Elders. Whereas Arianna is forbidden from indulging in such behavior. In fact, the Elders persecute Arianna first because she is female.

While I did enjoy reading this book, I found the first part of the book to drag on a bit. I also was able to figure out the plot less than 50 pages into the book, but did enjoy ‘watching’ the plot unfold as I read on. It is a pretty quick read and once I got about a third of the way through the pace picked up.

I gave The Curse of Gremdon a rating of 3.5 because it was a bit slow at the beginning and contained more explicit adult language than I typically prefer. That said, I did find it very easy to picture the landscape and the castle from the great descriptions the author gave. I found myself rooting for Tardon and Arianna hoping that the quest they were forced to go on would be successful. The Elders had said that if Tardon was successful that they would allow him to marry Arianna.

The Curse of Gremdon by Ciara Knight is available for purchase now.
