The Curse Keepers
The Curse Keepers - Denise Grover Swank

The Curse Keepers was a bit of a let down for me. Unfortunately, I had the entire series to work my way through, but I was optimistic it could improve.

What irked me about the story was mainly how special the two main characters were (they were literally the only ones who could stop the curse/the ending of the world). These main characters also annoyed me, as they make their way offending each other instead of getting the job done. This takes a lot of place in this book. The touches of Native American folklore were nice, since I don't know a lot about it.

What I'm hoping for in the next book is a bit more balance (more story, less will-they-won't-they).

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

TBR Thursday #28
Dark Vision - Debbie Johnson
City of God - Cecelia Holland
The Many Lives of Ruby Iyer - Laxmi Hariharan
The Curse Keepers Collection - Denise Grover Swank
Sea of Stars (The Kricket Series Book 2) - Amy A. Bartol
Harrison Squared - Daryl Gregory
Shutterspeed - Erwin Mortier
The Thorn and the Sinking Stone (Entangled Teen) - CJ Dushinski
Tookey's Talkies: 144 Great Films From the Last 25 Years - Christopher Tookey

Moonlight Reader started the TBR Thursday, and I think it's a good way to a) show what new books I've got and b) confront myself with my inability to lower my TBR. In fact, since I started recording it, it has risen significantly. I get the feeling I'm doing something wrong here...

 

Still no success lowering the TBR, so I just keep trying, and hope next week will be better, TBR-lowering wise. It would be a lot easier if there weren't so many books out there that sounded interesting. 

 

TBR pile currently stands at 348. (+20; seriously what happened; except that I added the Curse Keeper's Collection as individual books)

(Netgalley ARCs at 163 (+8))

Review: The Curse Defiers
The Curse Defiers (Curse Keepers Series Book 3) - Denise Grover Swank

I got a copy from Netgalley as I have auto approval from the publisher. I seem to have lost interest in this series. I liked the first book but was less than impressed with the second though I did initially want to know how it ended.

 

However at 24% I am just not feeling interested in this book. It's the same plot...only different demons and I have no I interest in Ellie's whining over should I be with David or Collin. And what's pissing me off most us she is STILL referring to her father as 'Daddy. She's in her fucking 20s!! It's just wrong and creepy for a grown ass woman to call her father daddy.

 

So thank you to Netgalley but this book is not for me.

The Curse Defiers (Curse Keepers Series Book 3) - Denise Grover Swank

The Curse Defiers is another great book in The Curse Keepers series.  One problem though- book 4 does not yet have a release date!  According to Denise Grover Swank’s website, we won’t see the next book until SUMMER OR OCTOBER OF 2015!!!  That is such a long time to wait.  I hate having to re-read a series to get ready for the newest release so that I stay caught up.  If it is anything like the last 3 books though, it will be worth the wait.

The Curse Keepers by Denise Grover Swank
The Curse Keepers - Denise Grover Swank

This story was a complete surprise.  The Curse Breakers was one of those cheap stories that I found on Amazon.  Relating to the supernatural, I was hooked from the first chapter and read it in two days.   I initially thought it was a YA, but the main character Ellie is 23, and there is definitely smutty goodness. 

 

Ellie has been taught about a curse relating to her family since she was a little girl.  After a family tragedy, she quit believing in the curse and refused to learn any more about it.  This turns out to be quite the mistake once she meets the very hot but obnoxious Collin Dailey.  Was the meeting a coincidence or was it fate that they met? 

 

I am already in the middle of book three and can’t get enough.    So addictive!
