Book Description

The Keepers have the power to influence the mind, keeping the immortal races of the world in the shadows. Betrayed by their own centuries before, they’ve been hunted to near extinction and slaughtered at every opportunity.

Two are all that remain, all that stand between the immortals, the human race, and total destruction.

Serenity Cardea is the only one left impervious to death. But with her last brother living a mortal life with his weakness at his side, Serenity is left alone to uncover who betrayed their secrets and find a way back from the brink of annihilation.

On her own, Serenity is indestructible . . . but all that changes when she meets Ray Synclair.

Now her days are numbered, and any one could be her last . . .

3.0 out of 5 stars Paranormal Romance - Heavy on the Romance May 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Review by Felicia Wetzig

Behind those emerald eyes, and fiery red hair, Serenity Cardea is a member of an exceptionally powerful race charged with keeping the peace between the creatures of the world - the Vampire, Were, Witch and Human. As a "Keeper," Serenity is most concerned with the vampires who want dominance over everything and have the numbers and strength to get what they want. The Keepers, however, have another problem - imminent extinction. More than fifteen hundred years ago, Serenity fought to save her brothers and sisters, but now only she and her brother, William, remain. To further complicate matters, Serenity meets Ray Synclair, her mate, her only weakness, and the key to her death.

Disclaimer: I received an eBook copy of The Last Keeper from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

The first part of this novel takes place in 1940 in London, during World War II, but the war doesn't take center stage. In fact the war barely makes an appearance, aside from leaking in from the periphery once in a while. As strange as it seems, (considering my own background in history) I found this treatment of the war quite appropriate.

"Silence surrounded me, making me feel as though I was standing in a gallery admiring a painting. Just like patrons of a gallery, I too was an observer, watching as the world passed me by. There were times when I simply glanced at the picture, gaining a general idea of what was happening before moving to the next one. And there were times when I saw everything. Every minute detail that the painting had to offer came alive before my eyes, but only if I took the time to look." Michelle Birbeck. The Last Keeper (Kindle Locations 59-62).

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice story, but no bang until the end. June 3, 2013
By wayne
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

More About the Author

Michelle is 28 and has been reading and writing her whole life. Her earliest memory of books was when she was five and decided to try and teach her fish how to read by putting her Beatrix Potter books in the fish tank with them.

Since then her love of books has grown, and now she is writing her own and looking forward to seeing them on her shelves, though they won't be going anywhere near the fish tank.
