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).

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.Read more ›
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.
