A Curse for True Love by Stephanie Garber | A Book Review

This is the third book in the Once Upon a Broken Heart series. I would say a good conclusion to the series. I was not expecting things to happen in this book but it fills with twists and turns. this is the description of this book;

Two villains, one girl, and a deadly battle for happily ever after.

Evangeline Fox ventured to the Magnificent North in search of her happy ending, and it seems as if she has it. She’s married to a handsome prince and lives in a legendary castle. But Evangeline has no idea of the devastating price she’s paid for this fairytale. She doesn’t know what she has lost, and her husband is determined to make sure she never finds out . . . but first he must kill Jacks, the Prince of Hearts.

Blood will be shed, hearts will be stolen, and true love will be put to the test in A Curse for True Love, the breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Once Upon A Broken Heart trilogy.

The Third book was a great finale to the series in my opinion. The story flowed forward seamlessly. I like how the characters evolved. I don't think the two male leads as villains because every character has flaws and they were both doing what they thought was best.

I felt for Apollo to be honest because he was wronged by Jack and he was somewhat in the right place to do what he was doing. All the things he did were not actually villainy, he had a plausible justification for this. he did not know Evangeline's feelings...well he knew but he did not know the extent of it. That is what I believe.

I was angry at Jack on multiple occasions. Although he is playing big games he is stupidly stubborn and just thinks he knows everything. Although I like the way he fell for Eva like he was hopelessly in love with her and she did not know.

In the last let's talk about Eva. the most levelheaded and awesome heroine. I loved her for being so mature at the age of 17 (she was 17 right? Correct me if I am wrong). I like the way she handled things. anyway on the whole I love this series. A 5 star from me. I love the places and building more in the book though. definitely recommend it.
