4 Stars: I Really Liked It

When Emi Warrin wakes one night to find a thief in her mother’s house, she has no idea the intruder has planted a trap-a mysterious letter that will change her life forever. Lured to the Austrian Alps with Daniel, the man she loves, Emi is thrown into a perilous, mafia-like world of fueding families and a devastating curse that spans generations. As the Firstborn She, the only firstborn female in hundreds of years-only Emi can free her family from the curse that will soon afflict her as well. But for Emi to breake the curse, she must delve into her family’s dark past, and she must gain the trust of those who would use her for their own evil designs. As Emi struggles to understand her destiny as the Firstborn She, she learns that everything isn’t as it seems and that all choices have consequences. Can Emi break the curse before it’s too late?

My Thoughts:
This book was really fun. Don’t you love the cover too? Emi is 23 years old and trying to be more independent from her mom. The story starts off right into the excitement. The mafia elements were unique for me. I haven’t read many books with mafia type characters.

There were some occasional chapters from other points of view which added to the story. The love triangle was really interesting and exciting. Daniel had been her friend for many years then someone new comes around who was very charismatic. No, I won’t say anymore. I don’t want to give anything away!

Overall a great read. There was suspense, spying, sadness, action, crazy mafia, and romantic tension!
