A delicious and dark gothic romance from bestselling author Romina Garber!


After a mysterious attack claims the lives of her parents, all Estela has left is her determination to solve the case. Suffering from survivor’s guilt so intense that she might be losing her grip on reality, she accepts an invitation to live overseas with an estranged aunt at their ancestral Spanish castle, la Sombra.

Beneath its gothic façade, la Sombra harbors a trove of family secrets, and Estela begins to suspect her parents’ deaths may be linked to their past. Her investigation takes a supernatural turn when she crosses paths with a silver-eyed boy only she can see. Estela worries Sebastián is a hallucination, but he claims he’s been trapped in the castle. They grudgingly team up to find answers and as their investigation ignites, so does a romance, mistrust twined with every caress.

As the mysteries pile up, it feels to Estela like everyone in the tiny town of Oscuro is lying and that whoever was behind the attack has followed her to Spain. The deeper she ventures into la Sombra’s secrets, the more certain she becomes that the suspect she’s chasing has already found her . . . and they’re closer than she ever realized.

Castle of the Cursed is such a beautifully written YA fantasy gothic romance. The world-building is outstanding. The story is well written with an enchanting storyline and well-developed characters that engage from start to finish. The world is atmospheric and feels real with vivid descriptions and rich imagery. I cannot get enough. Highly recommended.

A special thank you to NetGalley and Wednesday Books for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you to NetGalley and Wednesday Books for the ARC of this book!

I devoured this gothic romance like la Sombra devours blood. Make sure to check content warnings as there are talks of survivor's guilt and suicide. After a tragic event Estela travels to live with her estranged aunt in their ancestral Spanish castle, la Sombra. That's when the real mysterious stuff starts to happen. Now she must find out why her parents left Spain, what the shadow creature is and is it going to kill her, what is up with this castle, and most of all what happened to her when she was little? Great for fans of House of Roots and Ruin. The final page was a doozy and I'm going to need to talk to Romina immediately.

Gothic Romance say no more. I was enthralled from the beginning and every chapter kept making me want more. The world building was exceptional and it felt like I was walking side by side with the FMC.

This novel follows Estela who discovers a whole new world when tragedy hits. A world of self discovery, found family and new friendships. All while living and navigating through a cursed house. This story was truly magical and such an enchanting book.

Thank you NetGalley, St. Martins Press/Wednesday books for providing me with an eARC.
