Fall in love, break the curse.
It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
Quotes from A Curse So Dark and Lonely
I am always surprised to discover that when the world seems darkest, there exists the greatest opportunity for light.
We are all dealt a hand at birth. A good hand can ultimately lose – just as a poor hand can win – but we must all play the cards the fate deals. The choices we face may not be the choices we want, but they are choices nonetheless.
Failure isn’t absolute, just because you couldn’t save everyone doesn’t mean you didn’t save anyone.
The choices we face may not be the choices we want, but they are choices nonetheless.
Words spoken in the dark in the middle of the night always feel so much heavier than they would at any other time.
Not all scars can be seen, my lady.
