Review || The Art of Death by Becca Vincenza

What if a single act of rebellion had the power to change your fate?

Rowan and Abel Hayes’ birth ended a centuries-old family curse, but being a curse breaker has its drawbacks. Now they live a life full of rules.

When Rowan breaks a rule, she sets a powerful chain of events into motion that she never could’ve imagined. Abel is kidnapped, and it’s up to Rowan to save her twin. Can she rely on the aid of an old friend who once betrayed her? Or will new enemies prove too strong for her to handle?

The Art of Death is Becca Vincenza's first foray into the urban fantasy genre. While she is an established romance and paranormal romance author with quite a few books under her belt, she plunges headfirst into the world of urban fantasy with this offering of a new UF series. 

Marked as one-half of twin Curse Breakers, Rowan and her family have been keeping a low profile in Kodiak Falls, Alaska — that is, until the ghost shows up right before her 21st birthday. After tormenting her with non-stop talking and too many musical rounds of 99 bottles, Rowan promises to help him, thus breaking one of the first of many family rules. Coupled with the heartache of her werewolf ex-best friend and boyfriend, Indigo showing back up after leaving five years ago, the disappearance of her twin, Abel, and finding out that her family kept a life-changing secret from her, Rowan has to fight to find out what she is capable of and who she really is. 

Fused with fun, snarky dialogue, a beautifully crafted new magical world, and loads of character growth, this is one urban fantasy for the second-chance romance readers. Filled with mystery, secrets, and betrayal, Rowan hunts for her brother and the truth. While the way is fraught with danger and enemies lurk around each corner, it only serves to solidify the bond between Rowan and Indigo, leaving this blogger longing for a happy ever after in the ensuing books to come.

Becca Vincenza lives in *wonderful* Michigan. For a passion of all things paranormal and adventure, she writes both in Urban Fantasy worlds, and Paranormal Romance. When she isn’t writing, she is reading and vice versa.
