The Kure - Jaye Frances The Kure will probably draw in plenty of potential readers by reading the blurb, but the truth is that this story revolves around John and his pustule covered, seeping member and his need for a virgin to put said member into her mouth. The idea is pretty far fetched and if the blurb said that, I am pretty certain the number of readers would be small.

The graphic nature of Jaye's descriptions will make your skin crawl and the bile rise up the back of your throat, you'll likely feel like jumping into a scorchingly hot shower to rid yourself of the filth once you have finished reading too.

I felt like the story wasn't complete, it was fairly unrealistic (even for a fantasy/horror story) and the character reactions weren't right either. There did seem to be a few parts that drew out too long, offering up excessive amounts of detail that probably wasn't needed (the whole blackened hell scene).

Jaye's writing was quite good, there was very strong English used to describe certain things throughout the story. Certainly not for the squeamish or those who have just eaten, but if you dig the whole voodoo, mystism stuff you ought to check this story out.

The Kure by Jaye Frances
The Kure - Jaye Frances

Paranormal-occult romance. ---WOW. That's one word to describe this book. It was so hard to put down, the story was very intriguing, unique but not as dark or demonic as I expected when I first read the synopsis. My imagination was running wild as the story progresses. The images of Sarah or any girl for that matter, trying to fulfill the directions of the Kure was just disturbing. How the author Jaye Frances described the condition of John Tyler's condition was gruesome and it's insane how devotion could overlook such a heinous thing. I did expect the leeching to happen and it doesn't work so they follow the kure anyway, but it didn't happen.. It was fine though because something better happened and it certainly was more creative than what I had imagined.

This was a short read but the story was not compromised it didn't feel unfinished but there is a sense of mystery at the end that makes you want to get out of the house and track down the next book. I have no complaint for this book. The writing was excellent, the setting, the plot was amazing, the characters were beautifully constructed. Seriously, I did not expect myself to have this kind of reaction for this book. The next book to this is the Karetakers, a continuation of Sarah and John's story. 5 ++ stars.

The Kure - Jaye Frances Book SynopsisForbidden by law and denounced as an abomination by the church, the Kure has been hidden for centuries...John Tyler has never met Sarah Sheridan, but he knows he must find her, and somehow convince her that she is the key to unlocking the power of an ancient ritual that will rid his body of a rare and ravaging disease. But as cure quickly becomes curse, John realizes the ritual is more than a faded promise scrawled on a page of crumbling paper, and he discovers, too late, that the unholy text has unleashed a dark power that is driving him to consider the unthinkable.Ultimately, John must choose between his desperate need to arrest the plague that is destroying his body, and the virtue of the woman he loves, knowing the wrong decision could cost him his life.My ThoughtsWhen the author contacted me about possibly reading this book I researched reviews from fellow bloggers and my interest was caught firmly by the mixed reactions that I found. Some people obviously could not get past their initial revulsion of the affliction that the character of John Tyler describes when he wakes up one morning in pain to find a horrible sight from his abdomen to his groin.I admit that the old saying "Curiosity killed the cat" came to mind, however in this case curiosity allowed me to find a story that while it does have parts that turn your stomach it also reads easily, has characters that are very relatable to and turned out to be well constructed from start to finish by the author.The characters that the author created in John Tyler and Sarah Sheridan are likable people. John is a twenty three-year-old man who is making his way alone after his father passes away, he works hard, is kind to his fellow man and thus far has kept himself rather aloof from the eligible young women in his area.Sarah Sheridan is the daughter of a wealthy man, her family is also all gone except for her father. She and John have not seen each other in many years even though they live fairly close to one another.It was quite interesting to watch how the conflicting emotions that both John and Sarah felt came into play, each of them had to make hard decisions during the course of the story that lead to some tense moments that keep the reader turning the page to see what happens next.I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions between John and Sarah, this story kept my interest from the first page and it never wavered even during the parts where the affliction was described in vivid gory detail.This story does have an appeal both to adult readers over the age of 18 and younger readers who enjoy a bit of graphic horror, however would not recommend to anyone who expects a torrid romance because that is not the case within this plot. The paranormal element was not developed as fully as I thought it would be but what was hinted at in book 1 should be carried over and explained even more fully in book 2. There is romantic attraction between John and Sarah, a very strong one that hopefully will also get a chance to develop further within book 2 when The Karetaker picks up where The Kure left off. My only advice is be sure you go into reading this with an open mind, also if you cannot stand to read graphically described scenes beware that there are a few that will turn you green and if not make you sick will certainly make you gag.The author has created a uniquely unusual story that delves into superstition, dark magicks and the resilience of the human mind to accept things that are too horrible to contemplate under normal circumstances, a story that will haunt you with it's ugliness and also it's beauty![Kindle ecopy of book provided by author in exchange for an honest review.]
