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. Ellie is a Curse Keeper, the direct descendant of one of the two men who banished the spirits of a warring tribe from the material realm. The story goes that if the two Curse Keepers ever meet again, the countdown to the death of the curse will begin, the gate will open, and the raging Native American spirits will be unleashed to seek their revenge.
Ellie has always taken the legend for a harmless fairy tale. Until she meets the darkly handsome, but downright infuriating, Collin Dailey and realizes that he is the other Curse Keeper. The prophecy is coming true. Now Ellie and Collin must battle supernatural forces and their loathing - and passion - for each other to set things right.

The premise was original and interesting in its historical basis in the lost colony of Roanoke, but the romance was so stilted and predictable that it was laughable. The female lead's characterization is uneven, and the male lead is so obviously the cliched unreliable bad boy - so the romance seems contrived and based only on physical attraction, so as the reader you aren't rooting for them to be together.
The ending is a cliffhanger, but that was okay with me as it helped guarantee a readership for the second novel. 2.5 stars
The story lacked a full plot, plenty of dialogue but no bones behind the words. Tons of unanswered questions. Narration was very nasal and boring, but then again she didn't have much to work with. This story is also written for a 17 year old and belongs in the teen romance/mystical section
too nasal and her characters voices sound very similar, lots of valley girl meets west Virginia. I lived in Kill Devil Hills, I did not hear accents like that
boring, I tried to return it all together but Audible didn't allow the return
I'd recommend the story, but not this recording
Recording was tinny throughout & ruined the enjoyment of the story. The voice she used for Ellie sounded bored throughout.
