The Keeper, (Crossing Realms Series 1), Rebecca E. Neely

The Keeper,  (Crossing Realms Series 1),  Rebecca E. Neely 

Genre:  Romance, Sci-fi and Fantasy


I really wanted to like this book, it sounded so intriguing. sadly though it was a fail for me, I couldn’t even finish it 😦

Libby – I just couldn’t get over how accepting she was. When she first meets Nick, running late for work and stuck in traffic he’s walking down the middle of the road towards her. Does she think – “ wow what a berk”? No – its “ Libby, let me in your car” No, he might be a murderer she thinks, can’t do that. So far so good. Then she thinks about her dad, and decides to let Nick in. He tells her he put the memory in her head, weaves a tale about not being human, her being in great danger, rambles on about keepers and betrayers, and instead of thinking “ this guy is nuts” she accepts it all. Wow – would that really happen? She goes off with him, they get into danger and he tells her to go to his parents….but he hasn’t told her anything about them or where they live. Duh!!

Then later when they are at his parents although he’s Clan Leader his father is really the dominant one, he’s ex leader but doesn’t seem to defer to Nick at all…it just doesn’t feel Nick is leader in any way to me


Its a book that has a lot of action but yet nothing really seems to be happening.Nothing was explained, either to Libby – most of the while, she was so trusting she drove me nuts,  and she  just took everything at face value, or to the reader by way of conversations, text or actions. As for the “secret” I didn’t get into it at all sadly, and just found the whole story unreal, like a very simplistic YA read.

As ever though this is just My View and others will feel very different about it. Make your own choice, if you like the novels I do then maybe you won’t like this either – but if we’re on opposite reading spectrum this could be perfect for you.

Stars:Stars: Two, just didn’t work for me.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
