I really enjoyed reading this book up until the very end. The plot was unique and interesting (Lost Colony of Roanoke), the characters were well developed, the dialog was snappy, and the romantic relationship between the two main characters develops naturally over time. There was action, drama, and lots of humor. This book has all the ingredients for a "keeper", but the ending left me frustrated, unsatisfied, and just a little P/Oed.
The book ends at the height of the action with the Curse Keepers fulfilling their destiny. I read the last sentence of Chapter 30, and excitedly flipped the page to see what happens. And found nothing. Nada. That was the end of the book. I sat there in confusion that gradually turned to disappointment.
I know this is the first book in a series, but I like for each book in the series to stand on its own. Each book should have its own Beginning, Middle and an End. Curse Keepers has no End or conclusion. Nothing is resolved. It ends leaving more questions, turmoil, and romantic angst then when it started. This book should really be re-titled "Curse Keepers - Part 1".
So if you read this book just realize that you won't know how it ends until another year or so when the next book in the series is published. You might want to wait for the next book to come out so you can read them back-to-back.
The legend of the curse keepers has been nothing but a fairy tale and nothing Ellie took seriously since child hood. Now she's about to discover that is all too real.
Collin Dailey is handsome and dangerous. He's also spent his whole life learning how to save the world should he ever meet the other curse keeper.
The curse keepers had everything I love in a book. Mystery, action and best of all romance. I found myself turning the pages faster and faster as the story progressed.
Spouting the details of the book would ruin a good read. Instead ill just state that if your looking for something a little different then the typical world saving paranormal adventure then look no further.
I hope the author is quick to release the next book in this series because I am extremely eager to see what happens next. Recommend!
It's no secret that I love the Fae, but they're a popular enough subject that I've had to start screening (lots-o-books = lots-o-potentially BAD books) .
Know what I love that doesn't have a surplus of books written about it?
Native American folklore.
Yep, there's Jane Yellowrock and Mercy Thompson, both of which I LOVE, and there's Walker Papers (do not love), and that's about it. I'm sure there are a few more that I forgot, but the point is that there are far fewer of these kind of books than my other FAEvorite (HA!) subject, so I get far more excited when I hear about a new one. AND I'm from North Carolina, so toss in the Lost Colony, and there's not much that could keep me from that book.
Would that there was.
The Curse Keepers was filled so full of bad cliché awfulness that I wondered a time or two if it was a parody and I somehow hadn't gotten the memo.
Ellie is like a bad impersonation of Sookie Stackhouse.
"But I didn't like Sookie Stackhouse that much to begin with," you say.
Funny, neither did I (the secondary characters are what made those books so great IMO). Oh, she grew on me, and I never absolutely loathed her (though I know that some of you did), but Sookie definitely had her faults. She was just . . . such a girl sometimes. And by "girl" I mean stereotypically female. But I didn't hate Sookie, b/c she could buck-up and do what needed doing. She was clever. She grew up hearing people's thoughts, so she accepted the (obvious) existence of other supernatural creatures without batting and eye.Read more ›
Ellie Lancaster's father told her all the legends and tried to teach her about her heritage as a Curse Keeper. But after her mother's death in a home invasion, Ellie mentally blocked out all that he taught her. Now the curse has been broken, her father is suffering from Alzheimer's Disease, and Ellie really needs to know what she blocked from her mind.
Collin Dailey has come to town. He is the other curse keeper of this generation. He is really handsome but also really arrogant and he isn't willing to cut Ellie any slack for what he sees as her irresponsibility. Nonetheless, Ellie and Collin have to work together. They have seven days to seal the gate or let loose vengeful Native American gods who have been trapped for 400 years.
Ellie is a pretty normal young woman. She doesn't know what she wants to do with her life. She is looking for the sort of relationship that she perceived her parents had but hasn't found the right man yet. She is in complete denial about the whole idea of curses.
Collin has known about his role as curse keeper his whole life but has made some choices along the way that are very questionable. He seems to work for a criminal boss who is eager to get his hands on Ellie because he thinks she knows something of value to him.
I began this story not really liking either of the main characters very much. Until I knew Ellie's story, I couldn't understand why she was so adamant in ignoring the curse. I thought Collin was just rude and not at all helpful. I still have trouble believing that the two of them would ever have any sort of relationship. The story was exciting, though, and had lots of twists and turns in its plot.
Readers looking for something different in a paranormal will enjoy this one.

I was lured in by the history of the Lost Colony and the idea of a supernatural thriller. This isn't really that. It's basically a Harlequin Romance. Read morePublished 1 day ago by L. Hensler
