This is a thrilling and unique young adult high fantasy/mystery novel that will captivate you from the start. Marlow, a skilled cursebreaker, embarks on a dangerous journey when her old friend, Adrius, seeks her help in breaking a life-threatening curse. As Marlow delves deeper into the mystery, shocking surprises and powerful enemies emerge, leaving her constantly on guard.

The book masterfully combines elements of magic, fantasy, and mystery, creating an intriguing storyline that stands out in the genre. The concept of curses and their breaking, along with the use of spell cards, adds an exciting twist to the narrative. The author's attention to detail in character development, including their appearance, mannerisms, and dialogue, enhances the immersive reading experience.

The cover art itself is eye-catching and unique, setting it apart from other fantasy and magic novels. It piques readers' curiosity without revealing too much about the story.

While the book initially starts off slow, it quickly gains momentum and becomes a page-turner that hooks readers until the end. Marlow's complex relationship with Adrius, intertwined with her search for her missing mother, adds depth and emotional resonance to the plot.

Although the book is the first in a trilogy and ends on a cliffhanger, it does not leave readers in a state of unbearable suspense. However, it leaves them eagerly anticipating the next installment.

Overall, "Garden of the Cursed" deserves five stars for its excellent execution of a unique and enthralling storyline. I highly recommend it to readers who enjoy magic, thrilling fantasy, mystery, and unexpected twists and turns.
