    It's one of the most enduring mysteries in American history: What became of the English colony off the Virginian coast on Roanoke Island? Why, and how, did they vanish so completely? No one suspected an ancient curse... Ananias Dare and his expectant wife are among the pioneers who have come to brave an uncharted frontier. But conditions are harsh, and hostile natives have already spilled English blood. Only the peaceful Croatan Indians welcome the settlers.

    Ellie Dare Lancaster is only eight years old, but the secret she carries stretches back four hundred years, to the doomed pioneer colony of Roanoke Island - and the dark pact made by her ancestor, Ananias Dare.

    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.

    Okay.

    Couldn't really decide if I liked this or not. It's okay but not brilliant. The main character is big on self-pity which got annoying very quickly, an..Show More »

    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.

    I'm loving this series

    The Curse Breakers ranks very high among the audiobooks I've listened to. The narration is very well done and the story exciting and absorbing.

    For centuries the gods have waited - for the betrayal that will release them, for the traitors who will defend them, for the warrior who will challenge them. Now at long last the gate between the human and spirit worlds is open, and with it, an army of vengeful demons poised to swarm the earth. Only the Curse Keepers, Ellie Lancaster and Collin Dailey, can stop it...if they can break free from a tangled web of treachery, jealousy, and lies.

    The story keeps going

    I don't want a lot out of audio books and although this is not my favourite its a good easy Listen and ticks all the right boxes.
