Demi is determined to be good at her job as a Keeper when she finally gets her first charge after turning 18. However life makes things difficult for her with the sudden apperance of a half demon living next door, whos intentions she can't quite figure out. Taking care of her charge should be her top priority, but Demi comes to realize that figuring out the boy next door could be the key to keeping her safe.
Rhyzel is ten shades of mysterious, and unfortunetly I never really felt like I actually got to know that much about him. I get that he was hot and that he was trying to be good even if he was half demon, but there didn't seem to be any substance to him. (What did he go to school for? What did he want to do with his life? etc)
The story too was interesting and had a good baseline, but I would have liked to see more of it. This is definetly a cool world to get caught up in, with witches and demons and who knows what else. And then there was Mina her best friend although I could never understand why they were friends when the entire book you could see how big the differences between them were.
Overall there wer parts of this story I enjoyed, parts that totally fustrated me, and parts I wish there would have been more to but in the end it was an enjoyable afternoon read.
Demi Redding has just turned 18 and therefore will be given a full time charge, that means she will be given a child that has the potential to do something great in their lifetime and Demi has to protect such a child from any demonic or evil influence that could tip the balance between good and evil. She has always been aware of Demons and is very adept at fighting them because being a Keeper Witch runs in the family and she is well aware of the dangers that she will face, she has trained her whole life for this and she will not fail. Just as she’s about to find out who her charge is, she discovers that her mysterious neighbour is one of the enemy – at least a part of him is – but this leaves Demi conflicted because she feels a pull to him, as if they share a connection and he’s meant to be in her life, but how is that so? She is torn between letting herself feel for Rhyzel and keeping him at a distance for the damage he could potentially cause…. What she doesn’t know is that he has secrets and they could directly oppose Demi’s heritage – will she trust him? Just how far will she go to keep her charge alive? Would she risk her heart?
So, as I said, I really enjoyed this I like the idea of the Keeper Witches and it’s a great idea to show a different side to the witch genre, plus there are even different charges for each witch – in book one we had a Keeper witch who helped spirits stuck on earth and here we have a Keeper witch who looks after children who are destined to become something important – I found it interesting that they have this difference and wonder what else is out there for them. They were both really likable characters, Demi had a great attitude towards her ‘job’ which is admirable for someone her age and you could really feel the connection to Rhyzel from the start. I loved the connection Demi had to Rhyzel, I liked that it made her challenge what she knew about demons, that it challenged her prejudice because she was very against him and that he broke through her defences to give her some love – to be honest, they worked well together in everything and made a great team even as friends.
The storyline is very much about Demi coming into her own as a Keeper of the Innocents and also about the lessons she learns through Rhyzel. There is a lot focussed on the relationship aspect but action comes in the way of an emergency charge and shows us just what Demi is up against and it also shows Demi who she can rely on. It’s all very straightforward until towards the ending when the inevitable happens and her charge is put in danger, there are a few twists and turns that will keep you on your toes and I totally did not see what happened coming – which is definitely a bonus for me. The pacing was a tad on the slow side for me but not in a way that would spoil my reading experience and it held my interest all of the way through. I enjoyed it a lot and I will be looking out for third book.
Keeper of the Innocents is the second book in The Keeper Witch Series. Even though it is the second book, it can totally be read as a standalone.
Keeper of the Innocents follows the story of Demi and Rhyzel. Demi has been using her powers to vanquish demons for years. As keeper of the innocents, she never expected to be living next door to one. Soon Demi will be forced to look past what her instincts are telling her, that maybe her new neighbor might just be the exception to the rule. She will find herself questioning everything. It doesn't help that the boy next door knows way too much about her either..
Rhyzel is definitley not your typical boy next door. His looks alone set him apart and the fact that he's a demon, well that certainly makes things complicated. He can't help who he is and that alone may end up getting him killed. Will he be able to keep his secrets safe and complete his mission before it's too late?
Overall, I found this story to be enjoyable. The theme of this story is kinda similar to the first book. However, I thought that the characters were well written and easy to connect with. I enjoyed Demi's character a lot. She's tough and you definitely don't want to mess with anyone that she loves or cares about. But, she also has a real sweet side. Demi and Rhyzel were very entertaining to watch and I loved their banter. Rhyzel was charming, swoon worthy at times and brave.
I think Keeper of the Innocents is a good addition this series. I feel that the pacing of this story worked out better for me. If you're looking for a unique YA paranormal romance, you won't be disappointed.
