fan Her writing is so obviously well thought out and thoroughly researched Curse Keepers shows her devotion to telling a story about believable characters intertwined with paranormal twists and gut wrenching emotion.I ve always been enthralled with Native American culture and stories Denise weaves her own imagination so well within the stories and history of the Native American culture that the two blend seamlessly You will fall in love with Collin and Ellie, you will ride the emotional roller coaster along with them, and you will feel Ellie s soul wrenching reality come crashing down Most of all, you will be ready to read on Move on to the second book because Ellie deserves to have her story played out THE CURSE BREAKERSOkeus, Ahone, David, Collin all of them points on a star rotating around Ellie, and she s trapped in the middle Everywhere she turns, questions accumulate faster than she can find answers Two men love her whole two gods seek to use her for their own purposes.I don t believe I can adequately give true credence to Denise for the amazing stories she weaves Her characters come alive straight from the page into your heart.Denise has a gift for taking the heart wrenching moments and layering them with moments of love and hope Even in her other book series, she writes stories that take you along for emotional rides that leave you aching forI ve already preordered The Curse Defiers, and I will have to placate myself with downloadingof her book series to pass the time THE CURSE DEFIERSDefying LimitationsWhen I finished The Curse Defiers, and my mind was a jumbled heap of thoughts and emotion I m excited by every single book Denise Grover Swank writes, and each time I finish one I think I can t possibly love a bookthan that one Then she writes the next book, and I m swept up yet again This book, however, felt as though you were reading and feelings bits of Denise s own heart and soulso than usual She always puts so much into every book, whether a full length novel or a novella, but something in this one resonates on such a deeper level The Curse Defiers is, by far, the most intense of the Curse series As I sought a way to define Ellie, I didn t feel like heroine was the correct word It fit, yet it was missing something Denise herself clarified precisely what I was seeking Reluctant Heroine Ellie Lancaster is a reluctant heroine This was never a life she sought after By the time this book began, she was trying to survive and figure out a way to keep not only the people she loved safe but also the innocents that continued to suffer because the gate was opened The Ellie of The Curse Defiers is not the Ellie from the previous books As in real life, characters can t enter something of such magnitude and come out unchanged She continues to evolve even through this book until she emerges at the end a person she never dreamt of becoming She s so muchthan a Curse Keeper She s not just a daughter, nor girlfriend, but someone who has been stripped down and rebuilt Yet she never believes she has all of the knowledge or power She realizes she has so much left to learn I honestly cannot choose between David and Collin It s impossible to separate Ellie s need for both men Each man brings necessary qualities to Ellie s life, and to choose one over the other might appear that she NEEDS onethan the other I have always believed it is possible to love two people at the same time because you love them differently and for different reasons The Curse Keeper series as a whole teaches you never to make assumptions about a character in a book written by Denise She will surprise you at every turn if you attempt to put them in a box or confine them to specific traits Tsagasi is a character that is both enigmatic and endearing His introduction to Ellie s life is vital, and she will need him in order to make it through as things spiral seemingly out of control The Curse Defiers reiterates that life itself has so many situations that cannot be defined by the strict parameters of absolute right or absolute wrong Even decisions they believe to irreversible have ways around them, and characters you believe to be extreme in one direction will surprise you before the book is donethen surprise you again If you haven t read The Curse Keeper series, back up and start immediately If you have read the books preceding this one, hang on because no matter how fabulous they are, The Curse Defiers blows them away Knowing we are not finished with Ellie, Collin, and David is a great comfort in the aftermath of emotions from finishing Defiers One of my favorite quotes from the book seems so appropriate to end this review withyet the sun still rose The world still spun Life went on Write on, Denise I m waiting anxiously for the next

    2 thumbs up.I really liked the storyline and the characters I loved them all I think Ellie should end up win Collin for sure I like David, just not for Ellie What I didn t like was the third book re capped everything we just read So that was kind of frustrating.
