REVIEW: The Curse Breakers by Denise Grover Swank

For more than four hundred years, the Curse Keepers guarded the barrier between the human and spirit realms. All that changed the day Ellie Lancaster met Collin Dailey. Prophecy demanded they defend the world from evil?even as it ignited a passion that threatened to consume them both.
Now Ellie faces a frightening new life, abandoned by the man she loves and tormented by malevolent spirits unleashing their vengeance upon the earth. Her only shot at protecting humanity?and herself?from the demon scourge is to claim the mark of the god Ahone as her own. Finding it means trusting Dr. David Preston, a handsome professor of Native American studies whose skepticism is surpassed only by his attraction to Ellie. Together they must finish what the Curse Keepers began, defying the forces of darkness to face hell on earth?and unlock the truth of Ellie's destiny.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the area until she was nineteen. Then she became a nomadic gypsy, living in five cities, four states and ten houses over the course of ten years before she moved back to her roots. She speaks English and smattering of Spanish and Chinese which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period.  Her hobbies include witty Facebook comments (in own her mind) and dancing in her kitchen with her children. (Quite badly if you believe her offspring.)  Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to perform many unspeakable tasks.  She has six children and hasn’t lost her sanity. Or so she leads you to believe.

I was in complete turmoil all the way through this book...Don't get me wrong...It was a great book...It is just that what transpired in the pages of this book kept my stomach in knots...
Now, while I understood Ellie's anger and distrust toward Collin, I still really like him.  But this is kind of jumping ahead...
Ok...there is so much to this story.  Action-packed, filled with suspense; I was holding my breath the whole time waiting to see just what was going to happen to this little firecracker of a curse breaker known as Ellie.
She learns so much more in this book and there are pieces starting to come together.  *sighs* Still, there are so many holes to fill to solve the dilemmas in her life though.  
But, she has enlisted the help of a young good-looking college professor that specializes in the legend and lore of her problems and this is where the whirlwind of excitement begins to take off.
Now, while I like the new guy, my heart was already given to Collin.  Yes...I am taking sides and I am #TeamCollin all the way...LOL!! I can't help but feel that the chemistry between Collin and Ellie is hotter and much more explosive...But...I will say...David is a great match for Ellie...I just don't FEEL the connection...
The Curse Breakers is a fabulous second installment.  I literally couldn't put it down because so much happens to keep you going until you reach the very end...
All I can say now is...When does book 3 come out??? Ahhhhh....I need more!!!!
Fantastic series, that if you haven't started it yet...pick up book one now...
