A Review: The Curse of a Faeblood


The Curse of the Faeblood by MK Lorber follows Ember, a young woman who carries the gift of healing marking her as a faeblood.  She lived most of her life with her mother, also a healer taught her how to use and control her gift.  Ember and her mother never stayed in one place long due to their gifts, as faebloods outside the ruling class were usually hunted and killed or imprisoned.  The beginning of the story we find Ember alone, her mother just having died protecting her secret, and Ember on the run. 

She meets a young woman name Jade, who takes her in and puts her to work.  Ember ends up growing close with Jade, and really feeling at home in the town.  Never a good plan for someone who would be hunted and killed by nobility if she were found out. Gavyn, one of the town's protectors doesn't trust Ember initially, but there's no denying the attraction that blossoms between the two of them.


The storyline was fantastic, the world building simple and creative.  I'm not sure I always liked Ember, or Gavyn for that matter. I kept waiting for Ember to come into her own, and not need a rescue, or a protector but it never really happened. Ok...maybe once, but then she immediately went back to her dependent self. She was starving on her own, got the help she needed but still needed Gavyn, her possessive protector to save her. Gavyn went from brooding and suspicious to possessive and jealous. Confusingly he wanted to bite her to mark her as his mate...but no where in the story building did that seem to make sense.  The beginning of the book really interested me and I couldn't set it down but I left disappointed when the main characters didn't really show much growth. 

Who would want to read this? Someone who needs a low stress, rescue me romance with some kink that flirts with being smut, but isn't quite smut.  (Please know I use the word smut lovingly....we all need a little smut in our lives)

Heat Index:

7/10: We had some really hot moments and some mild kink. Everything was consensual, but graphically explained.

Overall Rating: 4 stars
