What is it about?
(Blurb from Amazon, this is an updated Blurb from the one on GoodReads)
Some rules are meant to be broken.
Skye Giovanni has spent her entire life heeding the warning passed down by the women in her family: an entire line of Gypsy Seers cursed with visions of death. Their cardinal rule–don’t get involved.
But that was before she met him. The sexy detective who tempts her to tear down the wall she’s built around her heart.
When Skye’s confronted by her most horrific vision yet, she finds herself doing the unthinkable. Running to the rescue of a complete stranger—and straight into a deadly world of magic and revenge.
Nothing in her life has prepared her for this. She knows she’s outmatched and completely out of her league, but she can’t bring herself to walk away.
Not even if solving this murder means she’ll have to face her own.
***Visions of Death is book 1 in The Gypsy’s Curse series (previously the Cursed Hearts series) and was previously released as Star-Crossed***
Recommended for ages 18+ due to adult language, content, and scenes with graphic violence.
Thoughts on Visions of Death
There is a feeling of Destiny to this narrative, a facet that seems to annoy the characters as much as it amuses the reader.
Blood feuds, unbelievable attraction, hidden fates, lost realms, forgotten histories and new paths to discover… it’s all here, plus a whole dose of danger and appeal. Skye, while still bogged down by things she can’t control, is a strong and wiley character – one that steps up, even when it’s obviously not in her best interest. Lucas is the kind of protagonist that seduces the reader slowly, with a dark and broody persona perfect for his law enforcement career, though still vulnerable enough to the ebbs and flows of fate around him. It’s an attractive combination, which is exactly what the author seems to be going for.
All in all, this was a good Urban Fantasy. Fast and well written, it captured a few entertaining hours.\
- Well written.
- I enjoyed the concept of Skye greatly.
- The attraction is palpable.
- His sister! Love her.
- There is nothing truly original about this narrative. It’s far from cookie-cutter, but there is still a feeling that you’ve seen this story before.

My Final Verdict on Visions of Death
A change of cover and title brings this Urban Fantasy series to the present with an “I see dead people” kind of flare. Easy on the heart and fast on the action, it’s free on Kindle Unlimited – and Complete.
