They Are Cursed Like You is a work of fiction in the fantasy, action, and horror subgenres, and it forms the opening novel of the Trailer Park Witches book series. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience owing to some mild violence and content surrounding death. Penned by author team Holley Cornetto and S.O. Green, this engaging novel takes readers on a thrilling and eerie journey through the lives of Courtney and Loretta, two women whose fates intersect in unexpected ways. Set against the gritty backdrop of Shady Acres Trailer Park, Courtney and her friends long to escape the bleakness of their lives, and their encounters with an older coven of witches seem like a ticket to happiness. However, as their desires come true, they realize that magic comes with a price, and the consequences of their choices unravel with chilling intensity.
Author duo Holley Cornetto and S.O. Green have crafted a brilliant series opener with an instantly engaging atmosphere of dread and suspense, drawing readers into a world where magic and darkness coexist. The trailer park setting adds to the sense of hopelessness and despair, making it the perfect backdrop for a horror tale, yet the story explores themes of magic, dreams, desperation, and female empowerment to offer a light at the end of the tunnel. The construction of dual perspectives, through Courtney and Loretta, offers a striking contrast between youthful optimism and the hard-won wisdom of experience, offering authentic female voices of all ages the chance to shine. Overall, They Are Cursed Like You is a gripping and thought-provoking read that delivers on its promise of blood, guts, and horror while also delving into deeper themes of identity, choices, and the price of magic. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the series has in store.
