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.

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.

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.

I came across this author on Twitter and was introduced to her book/fiction "The Blake Curse". On reading it I found it to be intriguing, exciting,mysterious and captivating. It portrays the struggle for love, intertwined with the paranormal and to top it off drugs! A concoction rendering the book explosive ! I would recommend it very strongly as it is a damn excellent well written book.

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!
