Cursed by Christina Bauer

Book Description:
Most days, Elea couldn’t care less about having Necromancer magick. Who needs to conjure skeletons and sprits when you’re a farm girl? Elea only uses her powers to speed up chores and scare off suitors.
Everything changes when the evil Necromancer Tsar curses Elea. Now, she only has five years left before she burns as a ghost, tortured for all eternity. They say there’s nothing she can do, but Elea disagrees. She decides to embrace her Necromancer powers, train as a magickal assassin, and kill the Tsar… All before his curse kills her. Impossible as it may sound, Elea thinks she has it in the bag, but then everything goes horribly wrong. 
That’s when a handsome mage named Rowan steps up to help. Elea wants an ally, but she doesn’t need all the mixed-up feelings that come along with Rowan’s crooked smile.
An assassination mission is no time to fall in love, but Elea’s heart may have other ideas…

My Thoughts:
Great book!  Elea is cursed.  She has no way to escape the curse but to kill the man who cursed her.  To do that she must become a trained Necromancer, but does she have enough time?  Her plan is iffy at best but then she meets Rowan and things change.  Her plan changes and perhaps her heart as well.  Rowan is a Mage who has a power unlike anything Elea has seen before.  Together they are in a race against time to lift the curse on Elea and free the land.The whole cast of characters was great to me.  Elea is strong and doesn't exactly fit what a Necromancer should be but she is the best out there.  Rowan is just as strong, if not stronger, and dedicated to his people and Elea.  Together they are unstoppable.  I loved Rowan's group, I liked them all...well most of them.  There was one, but I think he is going to grow on me as more happens in future books.  There is plenty of action, magic, suspense, love, romance, and friendship through this book and it is woven together in a wonderfully addictive way.
Absolute 5/5 for me.  I cannot wait to see what happens next with these characters.
