    1 thought on “Die Verfluchten”

    1. The world of cursed is a unique one, set in a fallen empire with warring factions inside and deadly invaders outside. The focus is on the cursed - survivors of the star sickness who end up with various psychic gifts.The powers are mostly two fold - the healer can can easily harm, the telepath can broadcast, the one with out emotion can manipulate them in others, the luck bringer causes occurrences good and bad. Then there are the shapechangers, continually shifting into new bodies without contro [...]

    2. This book has a lot of potential, and lived up to some of it. Note - this review has some story details that could be construed as spoilerish (but not too many). So read on at your own discretion.I liked the author's concept for a 'magic system' where the Cursed have double-edged powers. This system was developed and flushed out as the story progressed. I think the first 3/4 of the book was goodFor me, the whole relationship between the main protagonist Gwin and her husband Bulion didn't quite j [...]

    3. Many have died from the star sickness; those who survive become Cursed, the holders of mysterious, double-edged powers conferred by the stars, or fates. It is unwise to have contact with the Cursed and illegal to shelter them, yet after the death of her husband and children from the sickness, innkeeper Gwin Nien Solith does just that, taking in a girl cursed with the power to heal or kill. When farmer Bulion Tharn and some of his family come to Gwin's inn, a quest begins which will change the de [...]

    4. In this world, a crumbling empire, a mysterious star sickness either kills you or leaves you "cursed" when it strikes. This curse is manifest in powers, that when left uncontrolled leave you insane. Thar are the manifest powers of their gods: shape changing, the reading and broadcasting of thoughts, healing, future telling, the fatalistic changing of events, and the overarching dominance over people. Add to this an invading barbarian hoard, and those that the barbarians had fled from generations [...]

    5. "To credit herself with having God as personal advisor seemed dangerously arrogant."Duncan's worlds are just amazing, and this book was no exception. Polion's lament was beautiful, Bulion's longing for home was incredible. In short, the whole things just sucks you in and really grips.It ended rather abruptly, of course; there was a lot of build up to a rather shortened climax. In that regard the scope could've been toned down a little given the overall length of the book, but you can forgive tha [...]

    6. I've only read the Venice series of books by DD before this (which I really really liked). I didn't think this was as good, but it was reasonably entertaining, some interesting characters, and the way magic was dealt with fairly unique. I guess it was a bit long winded was the main problem. But I'll definitely be reading more DD in the future (but I won't be re-reading this one).

    7. Ohne diese Masse an Rechtschreibefehlen und Wortstellungskatastrophen hätte man auch drei Sterne geben können, aber doppelte Wörter im Satz und Buchstabendreher und das auf jeder zweiten Zeite machen einen beim Lesen echt grantig.Darum leider nur zwei Sterne, für die deutsche Fassung, vielleicht ist das Original ja besser.

    8. I read this whole thing.Seriously, you could die from a tooth back then (I know it's another world but it's still basically the same as back in the 1300's or whatever).I actually liked the characters more than I expected to when I started.But to be perfectly honest, this was something that was lying around the house so I read it.

    9. Slow to get started, but ultimately engrossing story of a world where those with special powers are dubbed "Cursed." And though they are ostracised, they end up being needed to save the land from war. Duncan again delivers believable, likable characters in a unique world.

    10. Perfect The premise of little empires descending into chaos because a barbarian horde wants to swallow them whole and a Cursed messiah to save them all is just perfection.

    11. Oh how I wish this had been split into two books and the ending expanded greatly, but otherwise, I loved the book!
