Publisher's Summary

Lusielle's bleak, but orderly life as a remedy mixer is shattered when she is sentenced to die for a crime she didn't commit. She's on the pyre, about to be burned, when a stranger breaks through the crowd and rescues her from the flames.
Brennus, Lord of Laonia, is the last of his line. He is caught in the grip of a mysterious curse that has murdered his kin, doomed his people and embittered his life. To defeat the curse, he must hunt a birthmark and kill the woman who bears it in the foulest of ways. Lusielle bears such a mark.
Stalked by intrigue and confounded by the forbidden passion flaring between them, predator and prey must come together to defeat not only the vile curse, but also the curse giver who has already conjured their demise.

Story went on forever.

The story was alright, but took too long getting there. The rhyming names made it annoying trying to remember when they were.

What could Dora Machado have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

If the book was written from one character's point of view, or even two characters' points of view. Four characters was too much and I began skipping chapters if it was about the two characters I found boring. I also thought the dialogue was forced. It seemed like Ms. Machado was struggling to make her characters use odd words and phrases just because they sounded "old timey". Overall, most of her characters' dialogue was very stilted.

What character would you cut from The Curse Giver?

The manservant and the guard servio
