The Curse Keepers by Denise Grover Swank: 250+ Book Giveaway! (USA)

Saturday, March 15, 2014
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.

    I've always loved books featuring the spirit world, especially ones involving Native American legends. This one sounds really interesting. definitely added to my TBR.

  1. I really like the setting of the Lost Colony of Roanoke with all of the mystery. It sounds like an exciting read.

    what sounds most exciting is the opening sentences: 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.


  1. I have always had a fascination with the Roanoke legends, so anytime I see it mentioned in a story it excites me. I really like the premise of the story, in general. My only concern lies with the romance that is bound to happen, and if it ends up consuming the story. I am still really interested in giving it a shot though. And I really like the cover!
