    1. Downloaded for free from “Tig is right – we do need to move – but we have nothing to return to. No plan. No hope.”This was a middle-grade/young-adult fantasy-adventure story, featuring a main character who was blind.Essie was a strong character, and she kept battling on even when things seemed rough. I did feel quite sorry for her with regards to her blindness, but she seemed to cope quite well with it.The storyline in this was about Essie running away from people who wanted to harm her, [...]


    2. I have received a digital copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.A Hero's Curse (The Unseen Chronicles #1) By P.S. Broaddus~Summary~There is a rebellion against Brogan who took over from the rightful King Mactogonii who apparently disappeared about a year ago from the Kingdom of Mar. All the while, Essie Brightsday along with her parents, uncle and a talking cat on a farm are caught right in the middle of it. Essie is like every teenager, except for one small problem; [...]



    3. *Was provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to the author and Sarah.This was one inspirational story and delivers a precious message. It's about heroism and how you can overcome your greatest weakness and rise, stronger than all others. It's about the power of family and friendship, it's about sacrifice. Heroes don’t seek wealth or honour or even insist on healing or family. Those are the things they sacrifice. Uncle Cagney’s voice echoes through my head: “That’ [...]


    4. Thoughts from the author.I have spent many years now crafting and writing and editing the story which is now A Hero’s Curse. All the time spent with Essie and Tig and Cagney and Illiana and Killian and Kiera has not waned my interest or enthusiasm. I am more fond of them now than ever. I love the story, and am so pleased that others are enjoying the journey as well.It is the story of a young blind girl and her talking cat who are propelled on a fantastical adventure to find their kingdom’s m [...]

The ending was intriguing. I think this series can go far. Can't wait to see what happens next. Overall, a great read.


    6. I received a special exclusive edition of this book from the Kids Prize Pack subscription box (which I suggest you check out if you have kids!). I really liked the story and am glad I came across it! It is a fun, engaging fantasy and the characters are really likable. I especially liked Tig, Lem, Cheep and the Urodela characters. Definitely worth the read!


    7. BUDDY READ AND REVIEW > A Hero's Curse (The Unseen Chronicles #1) by P.S. Broaddus - Starting July 7th 2016/topic/show/


    8. A middle grade book set in a fantasy world and told in first person by the preteen heroine, Essie. Oh and don't forget the witty cat, Tig. Lovers of fantasy and other worlds will enjoy this book.


    9. This is a truly marvelous tale of a 12 year old girl, Esse. Now Esse happens to be blind, but she has a cat who happens to talk. But being a feline character he tends to value himself greatly. He is alloof, taciturn, and exceedingly SNARKY. But what do you expect from a cat.Of course they find themselves alone and the world is crumbling around them. Which means they need to begin a QUEST to save her parents, oh.d her world.This a wonderful book, I have a 12 year old who would love it.I did and I [...]


    10. 4.5 Stars!A Hero's Curse is a middle grade fantasy that centers around Essie Brightsday, a twelve year old blind girl, and her cat Tigrabum as they are forced to flee their home leading them on a long return journey through a land that is cursed and dying.Essie Brightsday is a girl who, somewhat unwillingly, finds herself on the same path as their missing King and is forced to choose between trying to return home to her family or trying to find an end to the curse placed upon the land by a demon [...]


    11. I picked up a copy of A Hero's Curse on Kindle when it was free for a day. What a bargain! It was enjoyable for me to read even though I am much older than the intended audience. It does remind me a little of C. S. Lewis' books.I loved the snarky cat--Purrfect! It acts just like every cat I have ever owned. The book would be a good one to read to your kids at night. It is filled with adventure, new peoples, strange lands, danger, friendship, and good morals from the beginning to the end. I can v [...]


    12. Listened to the audio book. Great narrator and fantastic book. It is fascinating to listen to this story as it puts you in the same spot as the protagonist. She can not see. Towards the last part of the book there is a section of the book in which you travel with her as she describes everything . It is truly effective on audio as you feel you are traveling with her with sound,touch, and smell as your guides. This is an amazing journey. I loved this book so much and highly recommend it.


    13. I got sucked inMost books have a slow spot or two and I tent to lose interest, I didn't have that problem with this book I couldn't put it down. Since I enjoy a lot of different types of books I would recommend this one to kids and adults alike.



    14. Great storyI truly enjoyed this little adventure. Great creatures, characters and imagery! I especially appreciated the pet cat To granum. ;)


    15. A hero’s curseDownload free from Kindle .This story is a middle grade novel aimed at children 8-12 years plus, it’s not a book I would usually pick for myself, however, I received an email on one of the good read groups I am in looking for readers to review a few books. Being a lover of books, I thought why not. I am so pleased I did otherwise I would have never found this little gem of a story. The story starts off in a fictitious land, the Kingdom of Mar; from the very first page the story [...]


    16. Reviewed for Readers' Favorite at ReadersFavorite.The synopsis for A Hero’s Curse, by P. S. Broaddus, intrigued me. To find a fantasy story for young readers with a blind protagonist conjured up all sorts of thoughts and ideas—and Broaddus did not fail to deliver! The story is written from the perspective of Essie, in a manner that allows the reader to join with her in her thoughts. Together with her talking cat, Tig, Essie is left to the care of her Uncle Cagney when her parents must leave [...]


    17. I love being surprised by a good story. A Hero's Curse was one such surprise. In the vein of CS Lewis, this children's story is full of adventure, imagination, meaningful moments, and original application of classic ideas. The book's blind heroine paints complex world by describing her surroundings by sound, smell, and touch. While she thinks of the world as a dark place because that is all she sees, the reader begins to see that she is a central piece in a stunning world of color. Each new char [...]


    18. I have been giving A Hero's Curse to everyone I know that likes fiction! That's how much I liked it! If you're wondering what age this appeals to: I gave A Hero's Curse to a 9 year old public schooled girl and it didn't keep her interest. I think it was over her comprehension level, also it's over 100 pages, and the only pictures are on the cover. I gave A Hero's Curse to a 10 year old homeschooled boy and he couldn't put it down. He finished it in two days! He said he really liked it.I hope thi [...]


    19. I have honestly really enjoyed this book. The main character is blind and must navigate throughout the story without having access to sight, but using her other senses to make sense and "see" the world. The story is well written and engaging, great for children in 3-6 I think. I certainly enjoyed it and hope another will be released soon to continue the story!


    20. I may be biased towards the book because I backed it on Kickstarter. I've also grabbed a free Kindle version. Review to follow when I've read the book.


    21. A blind heroine is good, but the writing is not so good.It is a really great idea, but the author lacks the writing skills required to pull it off. I wish it had been better. 😕


    22. This is an excellent little adventure story. Essie is a blind girl with a talking cat who lives on a little farm on the outskirts of the kingdom. The king has disappeared, and there is unrest in the country. Essie ends up on an unexpected and unsolicited adventure in the wilderness of the Valley of Fire. Besides finding plenty of things that want to eat her, Essie meets new fantastical creatures and finds herself on a quest to find the king before it's too late.I really enjoyed this story, Essie [...]


    23. Great Read.I really enjoyed the adventures of Essie and Tig. It kept me coming back to the story again and again until the end.
