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
By FW
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).

4.0 out of 5 stars Girl Power - maybe a little too much power August 26, 2012
Format:Paperback
The setting and personality of the main character really sunk me into this book. I sped through the first chapter, eager for more. However, as soon as the power level of the protagonist became clear (particularly after meeting her mate) I became less attached to the main character who seemed to be, for all purposes, indestructible. Why should I worry for her? The second 'book' didn't draw me the way the first did. The new characters didn't seem to fully form in my mind. The confluence of events felt abrupt as well.

Back to what I loved. I loved Serenity's voice. I loved her attitude. I loved her wit and stubbornness. I loved the geneology. It was great seeing Helen young, then old, then dying. It was fabulous to watch that progression.

So although the 'world building' wasn't to my taste (and will probably deter me from buying the sequel), Birbeck shows her skill in this novel and I will definitely be watching for other story lines from her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review for The last keeper April 27, 2013
Format:Paperback
First I did not liked it. But since I had to review Last Chance I forced myself to read it in order to understand what happens next. And I ended up liking it. Some things are still confusing but if I put that aside, I will have to say that I read a very good book.

I liked the way Birbeck combined the historical with the paranormal romance. Before you say "Oh, another book with vampires and stuff? I will not read it" you have to know a few facts about it. As you can see from the title vampires aren't the only supernatural creatures in this worlds. Keepers, vampires, witches and shifters (cats, lions. wolves etc.) live among the human race. The heroine is the one with the power and the hero is the one who is helpless. Usually is the other way around with the heroine being the damsel in distress and in need for protection. I loved that. For once Serenity is the one who saves the day. Almost always is the other way around...

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.
