{Minute Review} The Curse Breakers (Curse Keepers #2) by Denise Grover Swank

The Curse Breakers (The Curse Keeper, #2)
For more than four hundred years, the Curse Keepers guarded the barrier between the human and spirit realms. All that changed the day Ellie Lancaster met Collin Dailey. Prophecy demanded they defend the world from evil?even as it ignited a passion that threatened to consume them both.

Now Ellie faces a frightening new life, abandoned by the man she loves and tormented by malevolent spirits unleashing their vengeance upon the earth. Her only shot at protecting humanity?and herself?from the demon scourge is to claim the mark of the god Ahone as her own. Finding it means trusting Dr. David Preston, a handsome professor of Native American studies whose skepticism is surpassed only by his attraction to Ellie. Together they must finish what the Curse Keepers began, defying the forces of darkness to face hell on earth?and unlock the truth of Ellie's destiny. (Blurb via Goodreads)

{Rating} 3/5 -- I liked it!

"The rain came down in thick sheets, drenching through my cotton tank top and denim shorts." (page 1, line 1)
Ellie has a new purpose: to send all of the escaped demons back to hell. It's not easy. She can't catch a break - there are cops, vengeful gods, money woes, the boy she's soul bound to, thugs that are after her. I did like Ellie's character development, she's able to think past the now, from what she wants now to what is good for her.

The other characters:

David. Ugh. He's such a good guy. He's a good guy for Ellie but... it just felt wrong.

Collin. So little of him. Still so many secrets. And they can't stop hurting each other. But there's just something about him...

The storyline? There are so many twists and turns, clues and false starts, nothing is what it seems, and as always, Denise Grover Swank leaves me wanting more. What's going to happen next? I definitely want to find out.
