    1. A great source of information that answers a lot of questions that you many have after reading "The Deepest Cut." However, it should be read after reading "The Deepest Cut," otherwise it's not as suspenseful. I enjoy Templetons' writing style and intelligent use of grammar, spelling and punctuation. This is a quick, easy read that it definitely worth reading if you've read book 1 and need a bit more background.Also, I'd like to say that I've read a couple negative reviews and I'm disappointed th [...]

    2. As soon as i read the first book of this series, i was HOOKED. if your into the sort of paranormal, romance kinda stuff then this is the book for you! i cant remember what book this is in the series but its obviously good since i read at least three books of The Mackinnon Curse. as soon as i started to read it i couldent put the book down(or phone in my case). one more paragraph turned into one more page, then chapter, then eventually i was at the point where i was saying "just one more book!". [...]

    3. Okay, interesting start to a series. I can see this going good places. Ian's story was interesting, enough so to tickle my fancy enough to keep reading. I actually wanted to know more about Ian and his family-- what happened before, what happened after. It was a good lead in to what is bound to be an interesting paranormal story.My only question being-- The MacKinnon curse seems, as of now, to only affect Ian. Wouldn't it be his curse instead? Though I doubt (view spoiler)[a curse made in a spre [...]

    4. The MacKinnon Curse: The Beginning is a prequel to The Deepest Cut. Ian MacKinnon has returned home from travelling for 2 years with his brother. Upon arrival, his family are keen for Ian to marry and make plans for his father's friends daughter to come and stay with them. However, a servant named Maria has taken a fancy to Ian, and mistakes his kindness for something moreI decided to read this before starting 'The Deepest Cut' and I'm glad I did. This book gives a great background for the book [...]

    5. This book was very insightful in terms of the history behind so much in The Deepest Cut (first book in the series). Templeton does a fantastic job of creating a believable back story, or misplaced love, jealously, and evil. The characters were great, their back stories enhancing prior knowledge to the series. It made me feel like I really knew them. I felt emotions with them, their anxiety, love. It's a short, for those who have read at least the first novel in the series. It may be really great [...]

    6. The reason why i liked this short intro book is because it is like a prelude to the first MacKinnon Curse book. It does a lot of explaining and we get to see things through Ian MacKinnon's eyes before and after he dies.

    7. Ian and Duncan spent the past two years traveling Europe. When they return home Ian discovers his parents plan to introduce him to a daughter of his father's friend. However, the servant Laria, mistakes kindness from Ian as something more.The curse begins

    8. If you do not read what this book is about in the synapsis, it takes you completely by surprise one plot twist after the next. A sad but fascinating story for an older Y.A. crowd

    9. I love The Mackinnon Curse series! The Beginning is a fantastic edition to this series. I love Ian’s story of how his curse begins between him, Margot, and Laria.

    10. Got to spend time with my Ian again, and it was glorious! It was really fun to see from his perspective during his time.

    11. This review is for the entire series. I absolutely LOVED this series. The source that I found it from emails me a list of free and inexpensive books every day, and some of them are horrible. I never know what to expect when I start reading one, but I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I purchased the entire series together, which is part of the reason I'm writing the review all together.The editing was a little lacking, and I found a few typos throughout the series, but not enough to take a [...]

    12. Synopsis:Ian MacKinnon returns to Scotland after two years abroad and discovers the town of Braemar is no longer the safe haven he remembers. As strange events begin to unfold in the forest beyond the castle where he lives, Ian grows more concerned about those he cares about the most…and with good reason.My Thoughts:I'm thinking that maybe I should have waited to read this until after the other books. It may be a prequel, but it was published last. It was still interesting either way.Poor Ian. [...]

    13. I liked being able to see things through Ian's eyes before he died (and a little bit afterwards leading up to "The Deepest Cut"). I don't think this novella would have made as much sense if you didn't read the "A MacKinnon Curse" Novels first since everything is pretty fast paced considering it's a novella, therefore lacking as much detail. If you've read the trilogy though, you can fill in the blanks really easily (like I did) and be able to appreciate this small piece of seeing things through [...]

    14. It was interesting to read what happened before the novel, "The Deepest Cut". This novella gave an insight on the deep motives of Laria and answered questions I had constructed after reading "The Deepest Cut". I enjoyed this book that held more romantic rather than creepy elements than the first of the series. "Burn in hell, Witch." “Ever so slowly the sides of her mouth curved in a malicious smile.”

    15. This is a great YA series and I absolutely will be recommending it to my students! I loved the story line and the development of the characters. The author does an excellent job of keeping the reader on edge and in suspense throughout the series. 5 Stars for all the books in the series!

    16. A nice addition to the series to see what happened to Ian before his death. I liked the romance between him and Margot. I knew that the book would end in his death, so I also like wonder if the author should have written from another character's perspective.

    17. This is the prequel to The Deepest Cut. It took me a little while to get used to Ian's viewpoint. I wish it were longer and it would add more details about Laria. Can't wait to read the rest of the books.

    18. I thought it was sad because the way that the witch was acting around his new wife all her anger went towards her and him. In a way I was glad that she iPad for killing him but then it was sad that now his spirit had to be in that same old town for years and years until someone broke the curse.

    19. I accidentally read “The Deepest Cut” before I read this novella, and I think that if I had have read them in the correct order, this story would have been more enjoyable. However, I still found it to be a nice and creepy read, and it sorted out any confusion that The Deepest Cut left me with.

    20. it was slow paced. it didn't draw me into the characters like others books have. will read the first book in series to see if it gets better.

    21. It's a little sad to read a story that you know doesn't have a happy ending but it was nice to get the full story of what happened to Ian.

    22. If you read the death series than this is a must read to gain a better understanding about the ghost of Ian.

    23. Not my favorite of the series, but I get why she wrote it. One star off because that guy on the cover is so not what I picture Ian to look like. Did they wear guyliner in the 18th century?
