In an effort to escape a lifetime of bad luck and worse decisions, Luke decided to take a giant risk and leave Los Hermanos in his past where they belonged. Unfortunately, Los Hermanos took the saying “blood in, blood out” VERY
When his long lost foster sister and her new boyfriend show up at his hospital bed willing to commit felonies in an effort to get him out of his guarded hospital room, he suddenly finds himself burdened with the fact that his actions had now brought innocent people into a firefight that he had tried to avoid all together.
As he struggles to push the only family he has left to a safe distance, a heavy sense of dread settles in around him and every instinct he has tells him that something far worse than Los Hermanos is coming.
Pushing them away and sacrificing himself seems to be his only option, but Sarah and Makkar have other plans. For better or worse, they intend on being there to the very end.
The very. Bitter. End.
This book is so far from the genres that I typically read that it’s not even funny. That said, Cursed was awesome. Although I haven’t had the opportunity to read book one, I did not feel lost as I read the story.
Unfortunately there is not a lot that I can say about Cursed without revealing potential spoilers. The book focuses on Luke, a man who is an admitted criminal but who wants to change his path in life. Unfortunately, life changes it for him and not in the way he was hoping. Unbeknownst to him, his foster sister Sarah has been watching over him for years and steps in to help correct the path his life has been set on. Neither is aware that there are higher powers that are at work in Luke’s life.
All I can say without revealing too much is that this is an intense, action-packed read that David Michael has done an excellent job in writing. I will be reading book 1 as soon as possible.

David Michael, author of The United Series, is a self-proclaimed crazy cat lady, a hater of snow, a lover of Star Trek and has an addiction to coffee that is excessive even for an author.
He lives in Salt Lake City where he is currently majoring in Psychology, working a “big boy” job, and writing full time. He shares a living space with his best friend, idolizes his mother, and has a strange knack for making friends with people on the other side of the planet instead of his own back yard.
