Publisher's Summary

What do you do when you know your world is about to shatter around you? Do you run toward the change or try to hold on to the broken pieces so that everything doesn’t fall apart?

I knew it was coming. We’d had time to ready ourselves, but nothing could have prepared us for the fall out. No one warned me our enemies would make me the pawn in their game. No one saw just how broken I would become.

Now it’s up to me to pick up the broken pieces and wield them against the ones who made me this way. Believe me… they are all going to pay.

This audiobook is part of the Shadow Walkers Saga. It can be listened to as a stand-alone, but will contain spoilers to the first books in the saga.

A witchy romance!

So this book is actually part of the Shadow Walkers Saga.

However, I overlooked that fact and managed to enjoy this as a standalone.

I loved Fallon as a character! Very well fleshed out and relatable

The narrator's David and Elise did justice to the character's voices.

I enjoyed this audio and will definitely be listening to the Shadow Walker series now

Great story!

I was a little confused by the beginning but once I caught on to what was happening, I enjoyed the story. I especially loved Fal's accent!

Lots of drama in this fantasy but is still boring


Lots of drama in this fantasy but still somehow boring
3 stars overall, 3 stars story, 4 stars narration

This book reads like an angsty New Adult urban fantasy, and only about 20% of it is romantic. Judging from other books in the larger Seven Realms series (this is book 7 in it) by this Sloane Murphy, this book is probably the first in the “Shadow Weaver” trilogy in which the heroine acquires 3 or 4 male love interests over time. This novel is told in first person present tense mostly from the perspective of the witch heroine Fallon and about 30% from the perspective of her love interest Colt. The book contains lots of drama but somehow still seems boring. It also ends on a cliffhanger. Trigger Warning Note: the book contains some bloody violence, torture, and PTSD.

I have several issues with this book. First, the book doesn’t seem necessary to have been written because it is rehashing the plot of Remy’s Book 1 (and maybe books 2-4 as well) in the Seven Realms series. I think just get a few new plot points experienced by Fallon, Remy’s best friend. This book contains plenty of spoilers for Remy’s books. The only other book in the larger series that I have read is “The Shadow Queen” (Book 10), and I gave that book 5 stars. That Shadow Queen Book is totally worth reading, unlike this one.

My second issue with this audiobook is the character of Colt and how obnoxious the male narrator David Black makes him sound. Colt is an arrogant paranormal “Hunter” with tattoos and a tongue piercing. He knew Fallon had feelings for him for years, but he still dumped her after their first one-night-stand. He is self-absorbed, callous, and spews 4-letter words with annoying frequency because he has a limited vocabulary. Colt definitely did not deserve Fallon’s love. In addition, the narrator David Black made Colt sound more obnoxious than he had to be; a 3-star performance. Also, Colt had lived all his life in New Orleans, but the narrator gave him no trace of a southern accent. I ended up skipping Colt’s chapters, and it worked out well.

I did enjoy a few things about the book. I do love Fallon and how the female narrator Elise Hoffman performed her voice and thoughts, a 5-star performance. Elise Hoffman appropriately gave her a New Orleans or East Texas accent since Fallon is the daughter of a famous witch in New Orleans. Fallon used curse words occasionally in reasonable situations. The narrator speaks fairly slowly, so I listened at 1.2x speed. Later on in the book, Fallon got on my nerves a little bit because of her inaction about something. The cliffhanger did leave me curious about Fallon’s future, and I might read the rest of the trilogy.

I requested and received a free audiobook code from the #Flock group, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review. #Flock, #AudiobookObsession

Love this story

You are so going to enjoy this book and you're really going to love Fallon. I love Sloane's writing and I was really looking forward to this book which happens to be book #1 in the Shadow Weaver series. Outstanding storytelling and awesome characters that will keep you engaged the entire time. AudiobookObsessionsReviewer & PinkFlamingoProductions

Witch's Curse

While listed as an offshoot of the Shadow Walker series that can be enjoyed as a standalone series, I will absolutely strongly recommend that you read the other series first. If I am remembering the other series correctly (it's been A LONG time) most of this book seems to run concurrently with the other storyline, just from Fallon's point of view. That being said, it's a good storyline, the narration is absolutely fantastic, and I will be looking for the next in series to see where this is all headed. I recommend!

Gets better as the story rolls along

This is the first book in a new series. While it can be listened to as a stand alone I highly recommend reading her other series first. This one has characters from previous series and it follows their journey too. I felt it was choppy and I actually looked to see if I had somehow skipped ahead since what I was listening to made no sense to me. This issue is only in the beginning and after a bit it settles nicely into the rest of the story.

I did enjoy it once it got going. It has a lot and I mean a Lot of characters. So the storyline is very active and told from different characters point of view. It is full of paranormal characters so if you enjoy that this story is for you.

I did listen to this on audio. The two narrators are new to me. I felt they did an excellent job and could easily listen to them again.

fans of supernatural will love this entire series

if you love Supernatural , you're going to love this entire series which included The Shadow Weavers within the Seven Realms Saga.
this


This story is about Fallon and also a continuation of the overall 7 Realms series.


*** note, you really should read all the previous books starting with a Crown of Blood & Bone. This book has spoilers to the Shadow Walkers Saga featuring Fallons bestie , Remy, and her family of Hunters.

I really love that Sloane Murphy shows her readers a different POV from the Remys books.

Fallon is a powerful witch who's full potential hasn't been revealed yet.

I'm completely sucked into this series and can't wait for the next book on audio!

David Black is newish to me and I like his voice for this series.
Elise Hoffman though?? That girl stole the show!! I'm girl crushing on her amazing voice ability and allllll the accents! She's a 1-woman show who could've easily voiced all the characters in this book. I am, however, thankful that it's a dual narration because David's voice as Colt?? H.O.T!!

Witch’s Curse

This is the first book in the Shadow Weaver series and the 7the book in the Shadow Walker saga. This book is about Fallon and Colt. Fallon had to suffer severe torture in the Shadow realm. She didn’t come back the same girl that she went in as. I really love the connection the Fallon and Colt had at the end of the book. Can’t wait for the next book. Elise Hoffman and David Black did a great job narrating this book.

Paranormal Romance

Witch's Curse by Sloane Murphy is a paranormal romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Elise Hoffman and David Black. This is the first book in The Shadow Weaver series.

The beginning of the book does states "This series is part of a bigger world but can be read as a standalone series." I have not read the Shadow Walker series yet and I would personally recommend reading it before starting this series. I say this because the book felt really choppy in the beginning where we were getting recaps from the events that happened to Remy in that series. But once we moved on to what was happening to mainly Fallon and Colt it because easier to read and I didn't feel like I was missing information.

The book does end on a cliffhanger but that wasn't a surprise since it's the first book in the series. I look forward to the next book in the series Hunter's Heart to be released on audio so I can get more of Fallon's story.

Elise and David did a great job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

Amazing PNR!

Sloane Murphy does it again! Witch's Curse is an excellent start to The Shadow Weaver, a new and exciting paranormal romance series, part of the Shadow Walker Saga. The story is wonderfully written and well-plotted with a totally appealing cast. The world-building and the premise are creative and imaginative with fascinating and unique supernatural components. The recap is smooth and efficient; it helped gather any missing information, so it can be enjoyed as a standalone series. Fallon and Colt are super interesting and captivating characters; I enjoyed every minute of their story and can't wait for the rest.

David Black and Elise Hoffman portrayed the characters flawlessly. They captured the nuances of the diverse and colourful personalities, bringing the story to life. Overall, The Witch's Curse was a fascinating and highly enjoyable paranormal listen, one I'm highly recommending.

it was ok

not the best book by sloane murphy. unfortunately many things were rushed and i just could not get into the story much because of the narration. i really don't understand what elise hoffman was thinking by giving that accent to the main FC. it put me off the whole listening. but the story itself is good. i would just rather advise you to read it rather than listening it.

Witch’s Curse

This is the first book I’ve listened to from this author. This book is listed as a standalone that can be read away from Sloane’s other books. However I must say the first half of this book I was completely lost as the book jumped frequently. My recommendation start with the other series first. This book is full of action and has a decent storyline. The narrative team really made this book for me.

No dull moments

I felt this book had something going in from beginning to end. It was fun to get snippets of the side characters’ stories. I enjoyed this listen and felt that the narrators did a great job bringing dimension to the characters and the story .

Apocalypse??

This was an intense story, there is so much going on, with Fallon & Colt, and even more in the background. This one would definitely be enjoyed more if you read all of the correlating books in order, but overall it’s still a good stand alone.
Definitely leaves you needing to know what’s going to happen next.

Where to start?!?

This was a very enjoyable book. With complicated characters with lots of issues it’s so much more than I thought it would be. I really enjoyed the way the story flowed. With an amazing performance from both Elise and David.

It’s a curse

First time listening to this Author and narrators.

Enjoyed some of the characters at times I felt a bit lost like I am missed some parts of the story but it still made sense in the end.

The narration was great.

Fallon and Colt!

Fallon is a witch who is still learning the full scope of her power. She is close to her family and the relationship that she and her best friend Remy share is more like sisters. She has had feelings for Colt, her best friend’s brother, but despite the attraction between them he doesn’t believe they could ever be together.

Colt is a Hunter who has been taught by his Dad that he must stay within his own species which makes Fallon off limits. When Fallon becomes caught in the crossfire in a battle that she isn’t part of it will force Colt to face his feelings for her especially since the experience has changed her.

The storyline is unique, the characters are compelling, and I really enjoyed the relationships that Fallon and Colt had with the other characters as well as each other. I listened to an audio copy of the story and enjoyed the way they brought out the personalities of the characters and the emotions they were feeling. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession
