The Diary by S L Weiss is Book One of Cursed. Ana is always looking for an adventure and she’s about to find one. A new store has opened in town, full of relics, dusty books, and healing crystals. Ana and her best friend, Sophie, head in one day and Ana finds a diary. She has no idea what’s in store as she decides to write in it every day. The diary takes on a life of its own and everything Ana writes about starts to happen. Drawn deeper into the power of the diary, Ana changes and Sophie, together with Jeremy, Ana’s other best friend, need to find a way of getting the diary away from her before it's too late. Can they pull Ana back from the depths of the evil obsession? Can they get rid of the diary forever?

The Diary: Book One of Cursed by S L Weiss was a great book. Page one pulled me straight into the story and I read it in two sittings. This is a unique story, a tale of paranormal evil and ancient rituals, of obsession and a need to do what you think is right. There is no let-up with this story. Right from the start, it is action all the way, with twists and turns that you don’t see coming and an ending that leaves you wanting to read more – I hope there is another book to come soon. The characters are fabulous, really well developed; real people with real lives and very likable. Great story. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to Book Two.
