About the Author

I don't consider myself a writer. I'm a storyteller. My two great loves are books and coffee. If it weren't for books, my heart wouldn't feel as full. And if it weren't for coffee, I wouldn't know what mornings are. That being said, the guy at Starbucks knows me well. He sings to me sometimes. I live in Orlando, Florida with my family and two rescue mutts. Their personalities are like night and day. One is gold. The other is black. The gold one doesn't like to sleep in. Before I've had my coffee, we are enemies. You can visit me at http://www.bellemalory.blogspot.com. I love hearing from readers!

So many mixed feelings about this book. I loved the concept of this one. Kids who were born from the spirit of one of the 12 constellations and carry elemental powers to help keep the world safe. That's pretty awesome. With that said I have quite few problems with the book.

First is the setting. I had no idea what the hell was going on till about halfway through. They had cars that drove themselves, bracers and fancy hospitals. I had no clue what year it is, and still don't for that matter. I don't know if I'm supposed to be thinking that it's the same Earth only in the future or just a completely different world.

Then we have the 'conflict' cause it wasn't really a conflict till the end of the book. They just basically mentioned the warring alien race in like 2 scenes and that's it. The book was really about Kennedy coming to terms with who she is and who she is becoming. Which I don't have a problem with. My problem stems from the fact that they kept calling them Keepers and I didn't know what they were keeping till halfway through the book. I didn't even know there were aliens involved till they finally said that DOE was the Defense of Extraterrestrials. Then I was like OHHH. But yeah...

As I mentioned before this was really about Kennedy coming to terms with who she is and boy let me tell you that took foreverrr. They girl has the closest relationship with denial I have ever seen. Now usually this would have pissed me off enough that I would have stopped reading. What kept me reading was that even though she was in denial she still went through the motions and at least had an open mind when it came down to it. If she had just stuck her head in the sand I wouldn't have been bothered with the rest of the book.

First of all, i like most books of Belle Malory. She writes exactly what i like to read :-)

I really like this book because of the personalities and the storyline. The characters aren't brainless people who are being controlled by the writer, but they all have their own lives, worries, thoughts. This idea that we have 12 keepers who protect the earth, who are linked with the 4 elements. It's all written as if it could become real one time, like it's our future.

Who knows?

I can't wait for the next book to read! :-)

The space center,Olympus is the site of the training center for the 12 teen keepers or protectors of the planet.This is a wonderful story about self discovery. It is action packed with threatening alien races, teens with outstanding powers, a greedy commissioner with a sinister plot, a star gazer seer with future predictions and of course, the romantic love triangle. I love the colorful teen characters and the humorous dialogue of the android. The main character, Kennedy Mitchell goes through a myriad of emotions and comes through her experiences with admirable qualities. I can't wait for the next book.

It was a little annoying waiting for the main character to finally admit to herself that she was the twelfth. It literally took the entire book. Also, when Phoenix came out his shell he really came out. It was like he was a different person. Not in a bad way, but he definitely had a more dominating and possessive personality than it originally seemed. Overall tho, i enjoyed the story and will be reading the second book.

Belle Mallory has a talent for taking us on fantastical journeys, whether it be into the mysterious lives of gypsies or the near future. I loved this story for its heroine in all her sweetness and faults. It was refreshing to read a story where the lead isn't already a sassy confident hero. And even more rewarding when she comes into her own in the end. The mythology of earth keepers throughout the ages is original and intriguing. Looking forward to learning more in the sequel. Great cast of characters, especially swoon worthy and aptly named Phoenix. A must read for any science fiction or fantasy fan.

Kennedy to me in the beginning and halfway through the book was kind of annoying. I felt the book dragged on how she felt about being on Olympus. Thankfully we end the book with her getting a backbone....finally. I'm a bit confused with the insta love between Kennedy & Phoenix. I thought their connection would have a deeper meaning with what Calaya goes on and on about, but it doesn't.

The Twelfth Keeper is a new and interesting series. It proves to be promising but there are some things I did not like about the first book.

For one, it was too short. I basically read it in half a day. I also felt that there were storylines just left hanging. I don't see the connection between the world now and the future world in this book. I guess more will be explain but I still feel the author should have developed her dystopian world better.

I think a lot of the book was wasted on Kennedy's self esteem issues more than anything else. I was waiting for her to get with the program so long that by the time she did something it was not even impressive. In fact none of these keepers are wowing me. Maybe if there was more parts spent on really illustrating the uniqueness and power of each keeper I could see why they were important.

Either way, I do like the concept. I hope the next book will be better.
