Book 2 in the Keeper series – I have to say I was disappointed with this one. Caitlyn is definitely full of prejudice we learned in the first book, it was wrong and annoying that she hated vampires so, but in this book, she is evolved to be disgusted with shifters (her charge to protect). Maybe her character could have become likable if she didn’t act so immature. Her older sister Fiona was the star in the first book. She can see potential in Caitlyn. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book, and probably Fiona’s positive vibe in this story helped me through it. I plan to read book 3 this week so I wanted to give book 2 the chance.
Aside from the character, I felt that this plot was a little overdone. It lacked the mystery and engagement of the first one. Ryder couldn’t hold my heart either, though I wanted greatly for him to hold a piece of my heart, I just couldn’t get myself wrapped around him. I wanted a bit more from him. With only a little heat in the book, I have to give it only 2 slices. On to book 3, The Wolven, written by Deborah LeBlanc.
