Sophie is a depressed, unemployed orphan with a beautiful best friend that stinks of narcissism and another one that really didn't have a personality. Her best friends decide to surprise her with a vacation to Hawaii. On the plane flight, the three girls meet three sexy, mysterious boys...and surprise, surprise, guess what happens?
Well, apparently Sophie is the most magical being to ever walk the Earth and her magical powers are unlimited. Not just that but her parents aren't dead but rather being held captive by a villain that has less character development and personality than Maleficent in Disney's Sleeping Beauty.
And that mysterious boy Sophie meets on the plane she falls madly in love with and loses her virginity to him twice - yeah once on page 86 and once on page 124. The only other character I've ever seen do this is Rhapsody by Elizabeth Hayden. Not only that, but they become accidentally marked for life, which is a very rare thing (yet half a dozen characters in the novel also had it happen).
The end reminded me of Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer. There's a huge buildup to the final battle and when it happens, you're like "that's it?". Also, the plot is nicely wrapped up 2/3rd of the way through the book. What happens after is nothing more than Sophie whining about how much her life sucks, despite there being NOTHING wrong with her life at this point. And every character coddles her. There's one character that calls her out for being childish and she whips him into shape with her Mary-Sue powers.
The only reason I was able to finish the book was because it had, at least, been properly edited. If the author does the exact opposite of what she did with Angel's Heart: The Keeper, then the sequel will be phenomenal. (F)
(I won a copy of this book from Goodreads.)
Sophie has suffered great loss in her life. Her mother died at birth and her father had been dead now a year. Sophie, an aspiring artist, has now been rejected by the owner who had been showing her work. Her two best friends Deva and Tabitha talk her into going on a vacation. This is where the real action is. On the plan she meet Henry Chang and sparks immediately fly.
What Sophie doesn't know is that Henry lives in a world of magic. Even bigger than that news is that Sopie, herself, is also magic. One of the most important people in the magic world. She is the Angel's Heart which will put her in great danger.
Sophie has to come to grips with not only her powerful magic but also betrayal that rocks her to her core. Everything she has believed is not so. There were so many secrets kept from her.
Angel's Heart: The Keeper hooks you from the beginning and propels you into the story. So glad that Lisa Bilbrey is writing more. I definitely will be reading any and all books in this series.
Watching the page count climb as I worked my way through the book was bittersweet; I wanted to know what was going to happen next, but knew that every page turned would take me closer to the end. Bilbrey writes with a smooth flowing style that lets you envision the lush island all around without losing focus of the story line and her amazing characters. There is never a dull moment with the large ensemble of unique cast that make up the story.
In my opinion, Angel's Heart is a great YA - more to the adult side of the spectrum - novel. A handful of well placed swear words, a fantasy 'first time' that should go down as one of the best, and a spiteful aunt hell bent on violent revenge all tip the scales toward making this a tale for more mature readers.
If you like using your imagination and escaping into a world of magic, beauty, and the love of soul mates, then Angel's Heart: The Keeper is for you. Grab your copy, get cozy, and sit back for Bilbrey's adventure where Hawaii is just one stop on her fanciful journey!

REVIEW- The Keeper is a realistic take on the supernatural. First of all, the pace was fast throughout, which made the story even more compelling. The storyline is very intriguing. Bilbrey has included very engaging elements throughout, which I can't even begin to describe, while doing the story justice at the same time. The characters were very well developed and their reactions to the plot, was what made the story realistic in a way. While I generally don't have a cemented opinion on the main character, for Sophie, I did. I despised her! She seemed a bit too opinionated and childish. But this is what the story required exactly. My favourite character was Eleanor as I had a deep down feeling that she was essential to the story. I have high hopes for her in the sequel, which by the way, I CANT WAIT TO READ!!! Overall, I am very glad I had the chance to glance into Lisa Bilbrey's imagination. I don't think anyone else could've done the story justice. Be sure to put this on your TBR list ;)
The story drew me in from the first word. and kept me there til the end.
Strong characters ,,fate,destiny,betrayal,true love.
This story is about a young woman named Sophie,who appears to have lost everything including her identity.
Join her and her friends on the journey to discovering just who Sophie is and what she was born to do.
