    For such a short book, it packed a whole lot of FANTASTIC!!! The story was filled with action and magic. Skylar was a great, brave heroine. She wasn't just going to lay down and forfeit her life after being thrown to the beast. Speaking of the 'Beast', I loved him. He had such an interesting back story. I don't want to write too much and give anything away because I loved finding out new things throughout the book. Very interested in reading the other stories in series.

    What a unique mix of science fiction and fantasy in this novella. The world building and emotions were clear. The romance was sweet and the curse terrible.

    I noticed only one typo.

    Sexual content

    Present tense

    I enjoyed this book and I just want to read more from Laura Thalassa because her words always hooked me. I wish there were more interactions between the beast and Skylar and I know that the reason why that's not possible is perfectly explained in the book, but I missed the building up towards a relationship. I believe that a sequel or just making the story longer would fix the little things that I wasn't into.

    Being totally honest it pained me to spend 2.99 dollars for such a short novella but h

    Being totally honest it pained me to spend 2.99 dollars for such a short novella but hey ! It's Laura and this brief story was okay. I might go and read one of the series by her that I haven't read yet.

    Ah-mazing ! This was a very quick read but , it was packed with so many emotions and suspenseful moments . Its sort of a twist on the old beauty and the beast tale. It features a strong female lead, who refuses to be the typical damsel in distress, when she's thrown underground as a sacrifice. I was immediately hooked and finished it with in a few hours . I LOVED the bit of Greek mythology in it as well. I'm now eager to read the rest of the stories this little book world has to offer .

    I've read entire novels without getting this attached to the characters and story. This was gripping. It was fantastic. It was thrilling. I so wish it was a full novel and not just 88 pages. The author did an excellent job at packing so much into so little time but I would have loved to see these scenes drawn out even more and to live in this story so much longer. This was a fantastic Novella. I bought it on Kindle but I'll be buying the physical copy to put on my shelves and reread the next tim

    Highly recommend.

    It's funny how the only supernatural/paranormal/sci-fi books I ever read are Laura Thalassa's. It's because there is always so much more to her stories. I loved this beauty and beast novella, how the author mixed the ways of Greek mythology with science fiction and added the biggest, hottest, sweetest touch of star-crossed love to the pot. I usually fall asleep reading in bed--I'm talking ten minutes, max--but with The Curse Catcher I read until I had finished it, which was at three a.m. Very en

    This is a short story that's got a really cool mix of myths intertwined into the storyline. It's got some of the Greek myth with the Minotaur, and as other people have mentioned, a Beauty and the Beast type of story. Kudos to the author for setting the stage of a super interesting world (apparently there are other books by other authors that take place in this world as well). In the end, I just didn't really love the story. It was interesting but I felt kind of like the jaded reader when I found

    This is a short story that's got a really cool mix of myths intertwined into the storyline. It's got some of the Greek myth with the Minotaur, and as other people have mentioned, a Beauty and the Beast type of story. Kudos to the author for setting the stage of a super interesting world (apparently there are other books by other authors that take place in this world as well). In the end, I just didn't really love the story. It was interesting but I felt kind of like the jaded reader when I found out more about the minotaur's curse.

    In a nutshell, the main character is a curse catcher (she can undo curses). And our hero, the Minotaur, is definitely cursed. Honestly, I felt skeptical of our hero. After falling in love so many times over the course of his curse, I didn't believe that the hero loves the heroine..... I mean, how is the heroine any different or special from the others (other than the fact that she saved him)? I basically would have respected the hero more had he took some time, self reflected now that you're human and mortal again, be his own man. And prove his love to the heroine that way. Okay, so maybe I've overthought this, but yeah. It's $2.99 on Kindle. It's okay.

    Kind of a 2.5* however I rounded up. The minotaur story was the same with a slight twist on how beauty rescues the beast which was interesting. It wasn't bad, I think it was the writing style that got to me. Within a first few pages of the book Skylar crashes to her knees several times and Asterion does as well, lol. Instead of being caught up in the story I found myself thinking poor knees. It's a novella so events happen quickly with a hea :)
