*REVIEW* Cursed (The United Series #2) by David Michael

Reviewer: Donna
Rating: 4 Stars

I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I read Blessed, book 1 and i found it very confusing but this one was really good and i enjoyed it straight from the beginning. I thought Cursed was going to continue the story of the first one. It does but it evolves around different characters.

Luke is a bit of a bad guy, stealing cars etc and he works for three brothers but has been doing a few deals on the side. They find out and end up setting Luke up which lands him in prison. Then you have Sarah, his sister who turns up out of the blue and Luke hasn't seen her for years. Mak is Luke's spirit guide as Luke doesn't know what he is or what he can do until he starts having these powers. Sarah and Mak try to help Luke out when he escapes from hospital after be beaten up in prison. Chuck in two archangels who are after Luke to destroy him and this story is exploding which excitement. It sounds confusing but believe me that when you read it, you will be really, really hooked.

The only thing i will say is sometimes it did seem to drag in some places. I think the book could have been a bit shorter as so scenes, i didn't feel were necessary but all in all i loved reading it. I really got on board with these characters and i found the story to be a bit clearer and i understand a bit more of the story. I'm looking forward to reading Saved, book 3. I'm hoping it will shed some more light on this enjoyable, detailed story. 

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 seriously. 

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.
