Book 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 action packed romance thriller 15 Mar. 2015
By Bee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ben Blake was a toddler in the Blake Soul and is now 18 years of age. He has not only inherited his father's Oscar Winning good looks but the photographic memory as well as the ability to see into the future.

Ben goes to Cambridge University to work as an under cover agent to investigate and expose a drug cartel run by rich and prominent individuals.

Sam Black had a very comfortable life until she was six years old, when tragedy came knocking on her family's door and it was all the way downhill from then on.

She attends the same university where her life is made a misery by her fellow students, mainly by her childhood friends Jake and Cathy but she will not be deterred from reaching her goal. Her past happens to be tied in with the drug dealers. Ben falls in love with her but she finds it hard to trust and believe him, especially as some of his undercover work involves flirting with her "enemy". Her lack of trust and judgement gets in the way of his mission and Ben finds himself in mortal danger.

The story involves corruption, romance, betrayal, terrorism and danger. I like the way Jake is portrayed and when his past comes to the surface, it is quite heartbreaking. I also like the way the Blake family handles all the difficult situations even when everything looks so hopeless. I personally enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A rollercoaster read... 7 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Brilliant and bizarre, The Blake Curse really seemed to get under my skin. I read it in one sitting. I'm unbelievably enraptured with this book for no apparent reason - it's full of love and espionage and sex and treacherousness and it's exciting and it's all wrapped up in a neat little book shaped parcel that has me so wound up I will guiltlessly use the word and repeatedly in a sentence that should be a list with commas instead!

The Blake Curse is quite unlike anything I have read before, and it's quite unlike most things I'd consciously choose to read. But I am unbelievably glad I did choose to read it. Much as I have read brilliant books, enjoyable books, books that had me turning pages hungrily, but this one was different. I feel as though I was literally chasing the story through the pages like a starving person would chase a pizza delivery boy with a mountain of pizzas.

I don't want to give too much away in this review, you really ought to read it and find out for yourself. The characters are deep and multidimensional; each one seems to have many secrets and hidden layers that peel back one by one like an onion until you are completely submerged and understand exactly what is at the core of them. The story itself takes that many bizarre twists and turns that it keeps you on the edge of your seat, each new avenue it heads up completely unanticipated and unimaginable before it happens. At half way through, I had no idea how it would end (and I confess if I had been reading a real book rather than the kindle version, I'd have been tempted to peek at the ending. I lie, I wouldn't have been tempted - I'd have done it for sure.

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.
