Ryder is the main character of The Curses Books. She starts off book one in a dark place. She is being bullied pretty badly. She is starting her first day of her Senior year.
Ryder has long, brown hair. It is waist length and naturally straight. It has a few waves to it. She rarely does it anymore. She is average all around. She is about 5’4”. She hates being short. She isn’t skinny but isn’t fat. She is simply average. Her eyes are her best feature. They are changing daily. Most of the time they are deep blue but some days they are green or yellowish or grey. She hates it. She wants them to pick a color and stick with it.
She lives with her dad. They have an amazing relationship. Her mom walked out on them when she was only three days old. Needless to say, she holds a grudge. Her best friend is her neighbor Junior. He is tall, skinny and reliable. He saved her when she was exiled by Becca Roberts, the queen bitch.
Book one, Ryder goes through a lot. She falls in love, goes on an epic journey and even gets into a fist fight. Throughout the journey she changes. She becomes independent and strong. Ryder becomes a bad ass!

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
