    The Keepers is the first in a collaborative trilogy by three award winning authors 1)The Keepers by Heather Graham, 2) The Shifters by Alexandra Sokoloff and 3) The Wolven by Deborah LeBlanc.

    The otherworld or underworld has to have order and policing just like the human world and that's where The Keepers come in, in the form of three sisters each responsible for a sector or species of creature they make sure the rules are followed or the consequences could be deadly.
    Fiona MacDonald is the keeper of the Vampire society and it looks like there's a rogue out there killing innocent and not so innocent victims and while she's hot on their trail she's constantly bumping into sexy Vampire cop Jagger DeFarge with who's help she intends to put an end to the killings even if it kills her. Jagger is a Vampire and perhaps a better New Orleans cop because of it, he can smell a rat and the rat seems to be a Vampire, but not all is as it seems and he with the help of sexy Vampire Keeper Fiona will have to battle to end the senseless killings.
    These characters are literally out of this world and out of this world good as well, we have all manner of fantasy and paranormal species that could only be visited between the pages of a novel of which Ms. Graham is no stranger as she herself is the author of many, many previous paranormal reads. She gives us a dialogue mix between antebellum and modern slang with characters that could grace the cover of Vogue one minute and the cover of Sci-Fi magazine the next. Her hero Jagger and heroine Fiona give us mere humans something to yearn for as she mixes not races but species to race toward their HEA. The love scenes are as hot as the New Orleans summer and will make your palms sweat even in the Arctic in winter, and yet the love these two characters feel for each other make the explicitness of the scenes necessary.
    So get your bite on and experience the first in this wonderfully new, inventive and imaginative paranormal trilogy The Keepers is a keeper.

    An excellent read!

    The Keepers is the first novel in a new trilogy, each by a different author. Fiona MacDonald, along with her sisters Caitlyn and Shauna, have jobs that most of the rest of the world doesn't know exist. They are the Keepers of New Orleans, charged with keeping order among the supernatural races that have settled in their city. When a killer begins killing beautiful blonde women, the three sisters, particularly Fiona, are faced with the first real challenge they have faced as Keepers since inheriting the job from their parents.

    A long-time fan of Heather Graham's, I was thrilled when this book, and the following two, were offered to me as review reads from the publisher. I generally love Graham's writing style, but I did find the prologue a little difficult to get through, as it was primarily informational, rather than an integral part of the story, to set the stage for the paranormal aspects of the plot. That being said, once I was past it and into the main part of the book, it was engaging and well-paced. I liked Fiona as a main character, her struggle to prove herself as a Keeper being relatable. I also liked Jagger as the main male character, as he struggled to overcome the stereotypes of his own race. The two together were a force of good and I liked that, although I did feel like the romance between them was a little rushed. The plot was fast-paced, with lots of twists and turns and unexpected events. I love a whodunit that keeps me engaged to the end and that keeps me off-kilter, and The Keepers did that for me.

    The Keepers

    Bestselling author Heather Graham launches the delightful world of the MacDonald sisters with the introduction of "The Keepers". Born with an extraordinary link to a concealed global community-hidden in plain sight within the folds of humankind's ignorance-it's an inheritance and lifeblood that ties them to the destiny of the world.
    In the heart of New Orleans are shape-shifters, vampires, werewolves and the like, living discreet lives, many with lofty hopes of keeping the hard won, yet tenuous peaceful balance recently found. Fiona MacDonald, the oldest of the three exceptional sisters-the keepers of this group of living myths and legends-has a very specific job. She is to keep the calm in a place where a single vampire's bite could easily start an all out war. When vampire, detective and acting human, Jagger DeFarge is called in to find a murderer with a very distinct calling card, both he and Fiona are compelled to join forces.
    Jagger isn't about to let anything stop him from finding the murderer who is sucking every last drop of blood from innocent humans-including working with the sexy and wary Fiona. As more drop dead, it's obvious this isn't the work of a run-of-the- mill vampire. Everyone is at risk. When the killer's focus turns to Fiona, will Jagger chance annihilating his own kind or the reputation he's worked so hard to build in order to safeguard the woman he so fervently desires?
    Graham's expertise is in weaving a tale where the unbelievable seems believable. She blends deeply developed characters with her clear love of New Orleans and does so flawlessly. A fan for many years, I come back to her work again and again, because her work carries a mystique that most authors strive for and fail. With a fresh and innovative outlook, Graham gives her all to everything she writes. Bravo!
