Review – The Thousand Year Curse by Taylor Lavati @TAYLORJLAVATI @SNS_BAH


The Thousand Year Curse

A Curse Books Novel

by Taylor Lavati



Being a teenager isn’t all fun and games for seventeen year old Ryder. After being thrown down the social hierarchy, Ryder Mason has one goal for her senior year- survive.

Within the first month of school, Ryder goes from bullied teen to a cursed half goddess with two boyfriends. As if that wasn’t enough, she travels into the Underworld to confront Hades about the curse and her missing mother.

Ryder delves head first into a Godly world as her two knights fight to seek her approval, her best friend’s loyalties are tested and people’s true intentions are shown in the first Curse Books novel.


Here we are again.  Another book with high review scores. Another instance where it seems as though I am just out of step with everyone.  Yet, I really had issues with this book.

Now.  Love triangles aren’t particularly my thing.  But, given the mythological premise, I thought I would give it a go.  I went into the book, fully expecting to suspend disbelief a little, given the subject matter.  However, Ryder’s reaction and behaviour generally is very difficult to follow or identify with, even taking into account her very obvious naiveté.

And for me, it really went downhill from there.  I struggled with the writing style, which felt somewhat clunky, and I simply didn’t find it to be an accomplished story telling experience.  I simply couldn’t finish it.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
