{Paranormal Review} The Curse Keepers (The Curse Keeper #1) by Denise Grover Swank

{Paranormal Review} The Curse Keepers (The Curse Keeper #1) by Denise Grover Swank

The Curse Keepers (Curse Keepers, #1)
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. (Blurb via Goodreads)

{Rating} 4/5 -- I really liked it!

"The moment I laid eyes on him, I knew he was trouble." (page 1, line 1)
What a fabulous first line! The story is intriguing, absorbing and creative. I appreciated how Grover Swank slowly revealed the tale, the curse and the role the curse keepers play.

Ellie has a good heart. And a lot on her plate, she's trying to help her family stay afloat, she's trying to save herself, to save the world. Collin. Big ego. Big talker. Curse Keeper. Secret keeper.

The fate of the world is on their shoulders but nothing is simple for them, their relationship is tumultuous and hot and sexy and they face many obstacles - one shaped liked Jabba the Hut - in their quest. The ending? The ending! My heart broke. I need The Curse Breakers.
