Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they're products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, a little weird…

The Wird sisters are different from every race on earth—human and supernatural. When human society is no longer an option for them, they move in among the resident vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region. Could this be the true home they’ve longed for? Um, not quite. After the sisters accidentally strip a witch of her powers in a bar brawl, they soon realize the mistake will cost them. Because to take on a witch means to take on her coven. And losing the battle isn’t an option.

Includes a preview of the first full-length novel in the Weird Girls series, Sealed with a Curse—as well as introductions to the Weird World, and a letter from the author.

I thought the Weird Girls overall is a good read. In this Novella, we learn the background on the Wird sisters and a little about the paranormal world they've seemed to be thrown matter how much they avoid it.   These four young woman…each with a different power, were cursed. This as we learn seems was cast upon the girls mother because she married outside her race, but it backfired.

The novella starts instantly off with action as the girls are out celebrating and instantly get into it with one of the Witches from a local coven in the town they just moved in. Now, the action I did not mind…it’s the reason I kept reading, but I felt from there on...the story was kind of almost jumbled together. There was a lot going on and a lot to learn and I felt a little like I had information overload.

I loved Ms. Robson’s creativity with these sisters and I enjoyed the strong bond that is shared between them. It took me a while to warm to Celia though…I know she was the oldest and protective of her sisters, but I felt she should have let them help her more.

The world building here is very well written even if there are some jumbles and the characters are written with such rich detail. I think Cecy Robson has a excellent series on her hands and Ceclia and her sisters will be great addition to the PNR world.
