SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN T READ THE CURSE KEEPERS AND THIS PLACE IS DEATHI have to preface this by saying that while I like paranormal romance it s not something I seek out The thing is I used to love them I think I just got burnt out on paranormal because everything seemed to have the same old theme I love a good vampire story as much as the next girl but there just seems to be only so many ways you can vary the story That s why this series by Denise Grover Swank is so refreshing It s completely original I ve never heard of another book referencing the Lost Colony and the Native American mythology was completely new to me While I m not as big a history geek as my beloved husband I do love mythology of all types This kind of stuff fascinates me and I can tell DGS really does her research It actually makes me want to do some googling and see what I can find out about these Native American godsThis book is the second in The Curse Keepers series which is sure to be an intricate and action packed mysteryromance series I m not sure how many books DGS has planned for this series but I can totally see her adding at least two I don t see how she can wrap this up in one book One of the reasons I love DGS is her ability to include several genres into the same book see the Rose Gardner mystery series A romance is a romance but this series gives you romance PLUS history mythology mystery horror and drama There s a lot going on but it s not overwhelmingIn the first book The Curse Keepers we are introduced to Ellie and Collin and a few supporting characters that I love Ellie tugged at my heartstrings right away She s working her tail off as a waitress while trying to help her step mother take care of her father with Alzheimers and an inn that has been in the family for generations She s worn out I felt for her and cheered for her and really wanted to slap her a couple of times for giving so much trust to Collin Collin is such a jerk at times but there are glimpses of a possibly good heart underneath all that Until the end of course when he tricks Ellie into opening the gate to hell which results in her father s sacrifice of himself to close it I m heart broken for Ellie and actually a little for Collin as well As much as he has infuriated me throughout the book I know he loves Ellie as much as he knows how and he knows he s royally screwed up It s not a happy endingWe begin The Curse Breakers not too long after that fateful night Ellie knows she s a target for the evil spirits that have been loosed from hell She s desperate for help but not so desperate she will turn to Collin for help Yes it s prideful but I totally don t blame her The magical and physical draw towards him is still there but what has happened just makes it impossible to go forward Collin doesn t do himself any favors in that he is still keeping secrets When are heroes going to learn that keeping secrets to protect the little woman just makes that woman angry ReallyIn an effort to get as much help as she can Ellie connects with Dr David Preston a university professor and expert in Native American studies Yes I am now in book love with David Does it hurt that he has a British accent Of course not I totally hear Paul Bettany in my head when he s speaking Jude Law will work too but Paul is my go to British love What I love the most about David is he recognizes that he is not the protector in the relationship He is a partner and supporter While he s not a curse keeper and therefore doesn t have any supernatural power he is of great help to Ellie Their relationship grows slowly into a solid friendship And maybe You ll just have to read it to find outWhile Claire and Drew have a lesser role in this book than the last I love that they are so there for Ellie Claire is a best friend that anyone would want You don t have underlying jealousies there They truly love each other as sisters and support each other Again Claire has no supernatural powers but she is a great encourager to Ellie She is essential I love that Myra has a bit of a role in this book You get to really see how strong the bond is between Ellie and Myra I feel better for Ellie s childhood knowing that she had Myra after losing her mom at such a young age and in such a horrible wayWhich brings us to the mystery Or should I say mysterIES Wow There s a whole bunch and it s just starting to tie together in this book Ellie s mom s murder which she is dreaming and remembering differently than how she s been told it happened the Ricardo deal which Collin still won t talk to Ellie about cue frustration the real reason for the curse and the agenda of the gods Yikes I feel like I need to keep a diagram or chart of all that s going on so I can connect it all as I read But like I said it s not overwhelming It s engrossing I couldn t put this book down and it wasn t because of romance It was totally because of the mystery aspect I finished at 145 am and woke up at 630 still thinking about what it all means What is the reason for the curse in the first place Why did Ahone help Manteo and Ananias do this What will happen now that the gate is opened Will they be able to stop the spirits Should they What does the Ricardo deal have to do with everything and what involvement in that deal did Ellie s father and mother have What really happened the night Ellie s mom was murdered and why was her murderer after Ellie What will happen with Ellie and Collin and David and how does fate play into itI have an idea of course about all of this But I m so going to enjoy reading the rest of the series to find out if I m right In my experience with DGS she tends to blow my theories out of the water and give me something unexpected And that s fine by me Whether things work out the way I think they will or the way I hope they will I m sure I ll be happy with it in the end I highly recommend this series You won t be disappointed

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 earthand unlock the truth of Ellie's destin. 455 stars After having read and loved the first book in the Curse Keepers series I was so happy to get a copy of this second book for review It s been awhile since I ve read the first so I was afraid that I would be fuzzy on the details of the first book but Denise has done a wonderful job of filling you in as to the events that happened at the end of the first book and she has done so where it didn t feel repetitive or like information overload Pacing It was so easy jumping back into Ellie s world so I am really glad I didn t spend the first part of the book trying to recall what happened previously I feel Denise did a great job with this second novel She wastes no time in picking back up where we left off and I was so heartbroken for Ellie and everything she s gone through Storyline When we first meet Ellie again she is a mess Betrayed heartbroken angry and hurt she is struggling to deal with the aftermath of what happened at the end of the previous novel She has gained the attention of Tom Helmsworth police officer and old high school classmate and he is not only concerned about her but is far too curious about the events that are transpiring in Manteo He isn t stupid and knows Ellie has a connection to everything that s going on but doesn t have proof Tom while not a bad guy just doesn t understand that there are supernatural forces at work and Ellie cannot divulge that kind of information to him Not only is Tom nosing around but she also has angry spirits that are after her now that the Curse has been broken and the gates of hell opened Seeking out Collin Dailey for help is the last thing Ellie wants and will hold out as long as she is able to I just felt so much for Ellie in this book After having lost someone very dear to her she is trying to get by the best she can but she also is in great danger She has one god who wants her for his own selfish purposes and won t give up until he has her While the other has also claimed her he is not going out of his way to help her instead she must make the journey on her own Time is running out for Ellie and she has to make her decision uickly before it s too late She seeks the help of Dr David Preston a professor of Native American studies After casting her off as a crazy person their paths meet again in Manteo and he can t deny the overwhelming urge to find out However David ends up being a true ally to Ellie and ultimately someone she can trust and depend on This second novel has a bit of everything mystery romance suspense and action And of course Native American lore which I really loved reading about Characters As I said earlier Ellie is a mess right now Yet she is still as determined as ever Not once did she just say the hell with it and want to give up She is in danger on multiple fronts and has to protect herself One of the things I loved about Ellie before was her compassion for others She will risk her own life to protect others and that is what makes her such a likeable heroine She is sassy and snarky and after being betrayed by the one person she needed most she is determined to stay strong She has moments of weakness where Collin is concerned as she can t deny the connection they share but she still manages to call him out on everything that s happened You go girl Collin Insert really angry face here I want to know what his deal is As much as I want to hate him for everything I just can t And my heart is torn What he and Ellie have is electric and they share a connection that no one will ever be able to touch Yet Collin s selfishness and his refusal to confide in Ellie are what separate the two even further Ellie doesn t trust him and without trust there s just no way the two can be together Collin will confuse you and then surprise you with his actions and I was left feeling really undecided about how I felt about his character I am not a fan of love triangles but I have to say I really liked David s character I m unsure of the direction Denise will take their relationship in the third book but he is exactly what Ellie needed NOW She needs someone to care for her and treat her as an eual in all things and that is David He s also really sexy and British which is always a plus too Final Thoughts The Curse Breakers was an excellent second novel and I cannot recommend this series enough especially if you are an urban fantasy New Adult lover The odds are against Ellie and the fight is on to ensure Okeus does not succeed in his maniacal plans for her I have a feeling the next book will be an edge of your seat type of read as Ellie continues her battle against the ancient spirits that have been unleashed and want to steal her life force Received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review
