Review of The Curse Keepers by Denis Grove Swank


The wall between our world and that of vengeful spirits has protected humanity for more than 400 years. It’s about to come crashing down.

Ellie Lancaster has lived her whole life by the site of the mysterious Lost Colony of Roanoke, the Virginia settlement that vanished without a trace around 1590. Only the descendants of the two men who banished the spirits of an enemy tribe from the material realm know what really happened to the colony. Ellie is one of those descendants—a Curse Keeper. Her father took pains to teach her what he knew of the curse and the responsibilities of its guardians. He taught her that if the two Curse Keepers ever meet, the curse will be lifted, the gate will open, and the raging Native American spirits will be unleashed to seek their revenge.

Despite her father’s seriousness, Ellie has always taken the legend for a harmless fairy tale. Until she meets the darkly handsome, but downright infuriating, Collin Dailey and realizes everything she was told is true. For when they meet, it’s like the air is sucked from the room. Collin’s presence is electrifying… and it’s not just attraction Ellie feels, but the inexorable pull toward her destiny. The prophecy is real, and now Ellie and Collin must battle supernatural forces and their loathing—and passion—for each other to set things right.

The Curse Keepers are all that stand between the world and its destruction.

************************************************************** 

This is a really great beginning to a series.  I enjoyed this book immensely

Ellie is a young woman just coming into her own when things begin to unravel around her.  She's been told since she was a child that she is a part of an age old curse and that she and another person would break it and eventually try to save the world.

When Collin walks into the little diner that Ellie works at she is immediately attracted to him. so much so that she is breathless.  Her breathlessness overwhelms her, she knows what she is feeling is not your usual attraction and same goes for Collin.  They touch and all hell breaks loose.

The characters in this book are very well written and so it the story line.  I recommend you this this book if your enjoy paranormal, mystery, romance and thrills.


4 STARS!!!!
