Curse by Steven James

About the Book:

As Daniel Byers prepares to attend a basketball camp before his senior year of high school, the terrifying blurs that’ve plagued him for the last nine months return.
Dark images begin to haunt him—creatures crawling from the deepest pits of his nightmares, glimmers of chilling memories from his early childhood. But before he can unearth the meaning behind his mysterious hallucinations, Daniel must team up with two other extraordinary teens to save a young woman who has been abducted by a scientist obsessed with enacting his own warped form of justice.
This atmospheric mystery picks up where Fury left off and takes readers into the uncharted regions where reality and madness intertwine.

My Thoughts:

"Curse" is the most intense, gripping YA thrillers I've ever had the pleasure of reading.  Steven James has a gift, creating and measuring out suspense and action, while sprinkling in bits of wry humor.  He then wraps the story up with characters so richly developed you feel them sitting with you as you read.

The Blur Trilogy is superb, but fair warning: this series is gritty, sometimes violent, and can get very dark.  And yet hope permeates every chapter, demonstrating how the importance of relationship and persistence in the face of intense adversity will triumph over difficulty.

I'm a huge fan of Steven's adult fiction, and now a die-hard fan of his YA novels.  I can hardly wait to see what he creates next.  "Curse", "Fury", and "Blur are all three highly recommended (but for older teens, please)!

Happy Reading!
