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.Read more ›
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.
I can't wait for the next book to read! :-)
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.

The Twelfth Keeper was strangely compelling. It ran between the line of futuristic and fantasy. Space, elements, robots, thrown together can made a pretty decent book.Published 12 months ago by Amazon Customer

This book was an absolutely wonderful as read. It pushes upon the borders of the mind to comprehend the abilities that we only wish we had today.Published on November 18, 2013 by elijah olivera
I adore blurred lines. Magical powers in space is what I'm talking about. I think many can relate to the character not wanting to accept that she is anything but normal. Read morePublished on August 20, 2013 by TNT Keller
