In their new Keeper roles, these extraordinary women must balance the fate of the world with their desires… Lust. Elven Keeper Sailor Gryffald’s body quivers with it, but is it a symptom of the deadly Scarlet Pathogen coursing through her bloodstream or the proximity of shifter Keeper Declan Wainwright?
Sailor and Declan have had an uneasy relationship ever since they met, and now things are about to get a lot more complicated. A killer is stalking Los Angeles, intentionally infecting Elven with the deadly virus, and now Sailor and Declan must work to keep the supernatural peace while bringing the murderer to justice. But, in doing so, these powerful denizens of the Otherworld find themselves straddling a fine line between lust…and love.
Out of all the Gryffald cousins, Sailor is the one who seems to take her job as a Keeper the least serious – on the surface. The truth is, none of these girls really know what they are doing or what exactly is expected of them. They’ve been thrown into extremely responsible roles years before they thought they would have to be with no warning or training. Denial is to be expected, but just like Rhiannon, when Sailor was faced with the challenge of stepping up to her role, she didn’t shy away from it. I liked that about her.
Declan was a true Alpha male. He was protective, driven and tried to stay in total denial over his feelings toward Sailor. The attraction between these two was fun. Their dialogue was witty and smart. Declan was older and had been a Keeper for a lot longer than Sailor. It was great seeing his respect for her grow the more he got to know her.
There were a lot of twists and turns in this one. It was hard to decide who you could and couldn’t trust and the bad guy totally took me by surprise. I love it when that happens.
Keeper of the Moon has definitely made me want to follow this series even more. The characters are gaining more depth and the story line is becoming more cohesive. I can’t wait to see what Alexandra Sokoloff has in store for us with Barrymore’s story in Keeper of the Shadows.
