Art Of Death is the first book in the Curse Breakers series. When Rowan and Abel where born, a curse which was upon their family for centuries was finally broken. Curse Breakers were sought after for the bidding of other Mystics, so their parents along with their other siblings went into hiding in the secluded town of Kodiak Falls.
As Rowan was going about her daily life, she makes one mistake about teasing a couple with a dead rat( yes the humor behind this is great, who wants to watch a couple full on make out with loud noises at your place of employment), in front of a ghost she hadn't realized was there. This one mistake sets into motion events that could not have been foreseen. Abel, while trying to help with the ghost problem brings back the one person Rowan doesn't want to see, Indigo. And lets just say, I want more of Indigo's story of why he was gone for five long years with no word to Rowan.
Abel, goes missing, Rowan is on the hunt to find her brother and in turn has to take Indigos help. Trying to find her brother. She learns she is wanted by many families and covens not just the Quintano family who placed the curse upon her family. She has to fight for her life. I don't want to give too many spoilers so you will have to take my word when I say you need to read this book.
Becca Vincenza does an amazing job at getting you hooked to her characters. The development of them is amazing, you see them grow into their skin and become confident and know who they are. You can feel the bond she created between Rowan and Indigo. I cannot wait until I can read Secrets of the Dead (Curse Breakers 2). If it is anything like the first I know I am going to love it and be hooked.
