Goodreads synopsis: 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.
Ellie thought her father's stories about the Lost Colony and their family's part in it was just that... a story. Then she meets Collin and accidently opens the gate that has sealed these Native American spirits for 400 years. Now it is up to her and Collin to close it again. Bad thing is, she doesn't remember her father's stories and now that he has Alzheimer's, she can't ask him for help. So, how can she trust this newcomer when at every turn he tells her not to trust him?
I found this book to be a complex, thought-proviking thriller with some pretty hot love scenes. All in all, I think the sex scenes could have been toned down a bit and not hurt the plot at all. The author managed to feed us a lot of history and not make it mind-numbing. It was an easy read and flowed well. I will definitely be reading book two: The Curse Breakers in the next week or so.
I received this book as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) from Net Galley in return for an honest review. Thank you to the publisher and author for allowing me to read this title!
