    I loved her nick name “Angel of Death”, I love that she is one strong kick ass female character, I love the romance, and I love the action.

    Serenity’s race has been hunted to near extinction. She’s a "Keeper" an 880 year old (give or take a century!), with the ability to influence others, including those immortal beings who want dominance over the world. Ray, is fascinated by Serenity, but has no idea that the world is filled with immortals, most of whom want him dead, and the only way to kill a Keeper is to kill their partner!

    She’s never had a partner, not that she doesn’t want one, but she knows the risk that having a partner will do. But once they are located nothing can keep them apart. The feelings alone will drive them insane if they try to ignore the link. She is one of the two Keepers still alive only because she has been unlucky and not run into her mate yet. The other Keeper being 1500 yr old unlucky younger brother William whom has found his mate, Allison will have to be extra careful that they not located, by those that would like to see the Keepers finally extinct.

    This story has a whole lot of action, romance, and betrayal. I was laughing one minute and sadden the next. The loss of her family was very vivid and my heart went out to her. The betrayal from one of her family members was a surprise, didn’t see that coming. The pace is fast and never dull, so many twist and turns I didn’t see coming. The story tense is present tense and the POV is from the Angel of Death / Serenity. I don’t recall any grammar errors, I might just have overlooked if there were, no one is perfect so I tend to ignore them if they are a few and don’t take from the story. Since, I don’t recall any there were either none or not a significant amount to recall. The ending was great it would have been fine it the story ended there, however there was a one page preview into the next book where it left the story in a sort of cliffhanger which I’m not to found about. I don’t like to wait a year for the next book in the series; however I was very fortunate that the next book was already out. I want to see what happens with Ray and Serenity and the rest of her family.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion and review.

    The concept here is a good one, a Keeper is one who keeps balance in the supernatural world. There are many curves and turns
    and twists that keep the plot interesting. The problem is that those curves and turns and twists don't appear until the last 1/3 of the
    story.

    While I understand the importance of developing the relationship between Serenity and Ray, it just went on forever with nothing
     happening. It was so mundane that it would be easy for the reader to lose interest. If you keep chugging, however, there is pay-off
    in the end.

    I didn't feel the chemistry between Serenity and Ray that I would have liked. If there had been more, I don't know, it going on, the
    first 2/3s of the story wouldn't have been so mundane, but there really wasn't any spice. It was all very calm, cool, and collected.
    It's a nice story, but  not one that would keep me up at night reading.

    I'm hoping the 2nd book in the series starts out with a bang, now that we got all that history out of the way.
