Présentation de l'éditeur

It’s one of the most enduring mysteries in American history: What became of the English colony off the Virginian coast on Roanoke Island? Why, and how, did they vanish so completely?

No one suspected an ancient curse…

Ananias Dare and his expectant wife are among the pioneers who have come to brave an uncharted frontier. But conditions are harsh, and hostile natives have already spilled English blood. Only the peaceful Croatan people welcome the settlers. But when friend and guide Manteo has a haunting encounter deep in the woods, Ananias fears the colony faces a threat much darker than mortal enemies. As a brutal winter and a massacre loom, Manteo and Ananias—and the dreadful secret they share—may be the settlers’ only hope of survival. But for the salvation they desperately seek, there will be hell to pay.

This Place Is Death is a short story revealing the chilling origins of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank’s urban fantasy series, The Curse Keepers.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great novella, can't wait to start the actual series now :) 17 mars 2014

This was a really good short story that gives a more in-depth look at the curse that is the basis for the Curse Keepers series. I've read that it's not essential to read this prior to the first book in the series, but I opted to for two reasons: I like the historical aspect about the Roanoke Colony (the 'lost city of Roanoke'/the Roanoke Colony is truly a fascinating piece of US history. If you're unfamiliar with it, research it someday.) and I wanted to know how the curse came about before starting the series. I also really liked the paranormal twist on the colony's disappearance.

What I didn't expect was the amount of emotion packed into such a small book. I really felt bad for Ananias, and also a little bit for Manteo. Both lost something, one unknowingly and certainly unwillingly, had he known the outcome. The other was fully aware of what they were losing, but what was lost was pretty heartbreaking even if he chose to sacrifice it. The different gods and the demons were really interesting and I liked how each man walked away with a connection to the other. A haunting sort of connection, but it's something they will both never forget.

Bottom line - great little novella that really sets the stage for the series and also for the curse. It will be interesting to see exactly how these two characters factor in to the books since this takes place in the early colonization days America and I'm assuming the books are modern day. Quite a few years difference :)

I loved The Curse Keepers and I had to know how everything began. What I read was completely unexpected. After reading The Curse Keepers, I had an idea how everything was supposed to end but I was still surprised by the final chapter. I cannot imagine the heartbreak Ananias Dare went through and how much more it hurt because it was caused by a man he trusted and considered a friend.

This is an enchanting short story I am sure you will enjoy if you read or want to read The Curse Keepers :)

Definitely a recommended read :)

This really helped you understand the curse and where it came from. Poor Anaias but it proves history repeats itself with what happened in the Curse Keepers. So glad we got this look into the origination of the curse.

It was great to see how we got to where we are in the curse keeper series and I think it's a must read for anyone who really wants to understand how the original curse keepers came to be.

This is a new series for me and I have been wondering what the truth behind Ellie's mother's passing was. As always, Denise answered my question but left me with SO many more! I learned a little bit more about Ellie and her family, why she truly doesn't remember her role and what it entails. I still am anxious to learn more about Collin but I was very surprised at the glimpse into his past! If you are an in between the scenes person like I am than I would definitely recommend reading this! Looking forward to the third book!
