A hidden society exists among us. Some ordinary people have the power to transform from mortals into elemental beings. They could be your banker, mailman, neighbor, fellow student, or even your school teacher. 16-year-old Brisnay Caplin doesn't think such beings exist. What's more, she doesn't know she is something more than human. She doesn't know she is destined to be queen of the Merrows capable of conjuring frozen weapons from water with a simple thought. Brisnay is miserable. Her father is abusive and her mother is too scared to leave. Life gets interesting when she meets Nickolaus...but that love is forbidden by her father. Then a mysterious book turns up in her parents' closet...this is the first clue that she could be something else. But as the queen-to-be investigates, she finds the elemental world forbids her love as well. Can Brisnay change the norm in the elemental world while confronting the shocking truths of her existence?

C.J David's "A Daughter's Curse" describes the adventures of Brisnay Caplin in world where beings that control the elements -- fire, earth, water, and air -- reside. Brisnay Caplin, the queen of the "Merrels", is considered to some as an abomination and to others as a walking symbol of change. She struggles to escape the constraints which her world puts upon her and to escape from the scorn of her enemies from being different as she battles betrayals, hatred, envy, deceit, vengeance, and retributions for her rights, specifically, the right to love. This novel is a great read for those who enjoy fantasies and adventures and once you pick up the novel, it is really hard to put it back down.

The Daughter’s Curse by C.J. Davidson left me in tears by the end. The characters were very well written and the world was intriguing. It is so hard to write about physical abuse in a realistic way and Davidson did that wonderfully. The battles had me on the edge of my seat. This book had a strong female lead, friendship, romance, and a new world where the beings had powers that I have not read about before. The ending had me shocked, so unexpected, overall a great read if you’re looking for a new fantasy read! -Ravia
