Product Description

Product Description

Ben Blake, an eighteen year old British Intelligence agent brimming with gifts; intellectual genius, striking appearance, impeccable acting skills and a heightened sixth sense... gifts that all guarantee the success of his first undercover assignment. He effortlessly infiltrates university life in Cambridge and befriends Cathy, the daughter of billionaire Edward Carter, one of the most influential and politically secure titans of the time.

Samantha Black, known as the elusive and exquisitely petite Sam. She rises from the ashes and battles her dark legacy. Her cryptic past and deep secrets become firmly intertwined with Ben’s investigations, shredding his carefully thought out plan to bits.

Jake Snell, the young rugged Earl of Yorkley, the enigma, the rogue full of vices....but possessing abundant resourcefulness, creativity and determination. He is Ben’s only lifeline in this treacherous game.

The Blake Curse is all about heartrending choices, fast pace suspense and that faith in the thread of human goodness.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars is not enough - amazing read 10 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
5 Stars is simply not enough.

I will tell you that I read The Blake Soul first and thought it was amazing. I loved it and was glad I read it first. The Blake Curse captivated me from the very start, I cannot recommend these books highly enough they grip you and don`t let go - 6 hours straight without the loo!!!!!!! Sorry serious head back on again.

I have no idea how to classify this book, it is a romance following two different stories, it is also a thrilling drama that is relentless from the start. I loved the family connection as well; the bond between the father and son just melts my heart. Anyway I am getting ahead of myself; let me set you the scene.

We meet up with Ben, the young son we met in The Blake Soul ( I will add you do not have to have read The Blake Soul to read this book, but I would recommend to) Ben is an intelligent, attractive man who has proven himself invaluable to the British Intelligence agency. He will do anything to protect his family and fulfil his duty, that is until his assignment crosses paths with Cathy and Sam. Ben must interact with both women to obtain vital information but both women change his world right until the end. But it is not just these characters that the book focuses on, Jake is a deeply traumatised man fighting his own demons, he too must battle Ben as he is focussed on succeeding.

The twists and turns in this story had me questioning each characters motive throughout, the vicious and dramatic storyline had my heart in my mouth. The characters are so well written you immediately bond and take the journey with them. A journey that, trust me, I would not like to take alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Read! 13 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The Blake Curse is an amazing read! This novel has an original, complex, multiple layered storyline, but the author effortlessly writes in such a brilliant way that they all come together, seamlessly, as one. There is a lot of exciting suspenseful action through out this thriller, and I happily kept reading to find out how it was resolved. There are also great characters, all of whom have unique and love-able qualities. I really want to talk about specific areas I loved, but I cannot, as I do not wish to leave 'Plot Spoilers'! You will have to read it, and find out, trust me, it's well worth it!
This is the first of three books that are based on the Blake family, and the first two can be read in any order, but the third, The Blake Mistake, should be read last. After reading The Blake Curse, I went and bought, then read the second and third books, The Blake Soul and The Blake Mistake, knowing that they too would be an excellent way to spend time reading and I was not disappointed. I also read another of the authors' books, Week of Lies, as I love the authors' style and unique stories. I recommend reading all of I C Camilleri's novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab, fast paced read 11 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I won't go into the whole story as I believe sometimes it is good to not know too much or the mystery won't be there.
I thoroughly enjoyed this, I found it intriguing, very different type of thriller to many others out there & it kept me turning the pages, finding it hard to put down.
As an author she reels you in with great characters, a lot of drama & love.
I will definitely be trying her other books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh flavoured writing. 30 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very English without being in any way traditional or predictable, the Blake Curse is both a modern and energetic tale to suit the younger adult.

Interestingly, IC Camilleri's cultural origins add a pleasant flavour to the narrative of the Blake Curse.

Throughout the story there is always a lot going on with plots within plots that unravel regularly throughout the entire book. Perhaps it is a sign of modern times that I felt that The Blake Curse delivers in only one story the content equivalent to what would have previously needed several books of slightly different genres to get across.

Introduced by Twitter while looking for new talent, rather than the same names again and again, I was pleased with the Kindle version which was easily digestible, yet both hard and soft in theme.

5.0 out of 5 stars Familial intrigue at its best 20 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this book was going to be a feminine journey into inter familial romance. I was wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and read it voraciously. It is certainly a familial saga, but with more darkness than the usual for this genre, and (in my experience), far better executed, and nice to see one not set in the ubiquitous large East or West coast cities of America. The plot is familial, and intrigue and secret based, hidden difficult truths are suggested, but one must not give too much away, other than to say the resolution is deft, and leaves sequels inevitable. Sequels which I would certainly buy, incidentally. But the true quality of this book, is its comfortable written style, descriptive yet not overly so, and characters which are hinted at, then constructed in layers by actions and drama, rather than merely narrative. All in all a clever first class, and original delivery of a recognized genre.
