Présentation de l'éditeur

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 North Carolina 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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Ends with a cliff hanger. Wait for the next book (Curse Keepers-Part 2) to be published before starting this one (CK- Part 1) 31 décembre 2013

Caution - Some might consider this review a Spoiler, but I wish I had known this Spoiler before reading the book...

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.

This is a story unlike any I've read in the past. When the curse keepers of today Ellie Lancaster and Collin Dailey meet at Ellie's place of work their lives both change forever.

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!

Par Jessica@RabidReads - Publié sur Amazon.com

There are a couple of things that immediately get my attention when I'm checking out new books.

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.

Ellie was all of the bad Sookie parts, none of the good, and all of those bad parts were exaggerated.

She wants to marry a rich man, so she doesn't have to worry about money. She refuses to work with the other Curse Keeper (their meeting is what triggers the curse), b/c he's rude to her, even though it's THE WORLD that's at stake. She grew up learning about the curse of the Lost Colony of Roanoke, was taught to be ever vigilant, and yet, when she sees the undeniable proof of the things she was told as a child, she absolutely refuses to believe it.

And once the prophesied curse is set in motion, she and Collin (other Curse Keeper) have seven days to close the gates of the Underworld/Afterlife/whatever, and SAVE THE WORLD, but Ellie keeps waitressing and doing friggin' laundry at her family's B&B, b/c "it's not real."

And Collin?

Well, he's, of course, a smokin' hot, womanizing manwhore. A smokin' hot, womanizing manwhore who is not even remotely interested in Ellie that way.

Oh wait . . . yes, he is . . . she's his one true love. *bats eyelashes*

But, wasn't he completely disgusted with her only a day or so ago? The airhead waitress who didn't take her responsibility to the gods seriously? The girl who was unprepared to fulfill her sacred duty? The girl who PAWNED her holy hand grenade, I mean ancient relic?

Speaking of Monty Python, the gods who are trying to escape the gates of the Underworld/Afterlife/whatever have messengers. Messengers who appear as balls of light and BOOM out demands in a way that was vaguely reminiscent of God appearing in the clouds to send Arthur on his quest to find the holy grail . . .

Except in Monty Python and the Holy Grail it was funny.

Not so much here. Just one more silly thing to throw on top of the heap of silly things. Silly things like repeating the same sentiments over and over again . . .

Ellie and Collin didn't exactly get off to a great start, so Collin suggests they start over. Only that start didn't go so well either, so Collin suggests they begin anew. Only that beginning . . .

Yeah, that happened at least four times. In fact, it happened every, single day until they started having sex, so apparently that was what Collin thought of as "the right foot." And I lost count of the times he asked her if she was and angel or an enchantress. *throws up a little bit in mouth*

GAH, I just really, really hate this book. Patio furniture is more entertaining than Ellie, and probably smarter too. Collin is detestable, until suddenly, he's the perfect, doting boyfriend, and the plot is so predictable that I could have stopped reading halfway in, and still have been able to tell you EXACTLY what was going to happen. Not recommended.

Par JoelleNJ - Publié sur Amazon.com

A hybrid of sorts, the Chosen meets Aftermath. Who doesn’t love a good urban fantasy meets a potential love story. This is my second favorite series by DGS. This book grabs you by the throat, has you on the edge of your seat, and you are genuinely afraid of what might happen next. (Do not read this at night time). Ellie needs to save the world, not find a boyfriend. Collin F*ing Dailey realizes sometimes hope isn’t enough. The son of the land and the daughter of the sea face a battle. A relationship. A life lesson. “Always listen to your instincts!” Before you know you’re on the last page, wanting more. I agreed to give an honest review for an early glimpse ARC of this series, and even if you are not a current fan of DGS, you will be sucked into another great adventure!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Curses and Disappearing Colonies 22 septembre 2013
Par K. M. Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
THE CURSE KEEPERS mines a different mythology for its paranormal elements than most of the paranormals I read. This one deals with ancient curses and trapped Native American gods.

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.
