Blog Tour Review- The Keeper- Awakening

Title: The Keeper: Awakening
Author: O.L. Ramos
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Tour Host: Lady Amber's Tours
Series: Keeper book 1
Rating: 4/5

Elizabeth is a brilliant loner with a troubling secret she doesn't even know. As if the trauma of her mother being abducted before her eyes as a young girl wasn't enough, the small town she lives in thinks she’s crazy. That all changed when she met Michael, a mysterious and handsome man who identified with her like no one else before.

Michael’s long time friend Vincent visits and drops the bombshell of a lifetime on Elizabeth and her world becomes completely unraveled. Vincent’s information has revealed the world for what it is; a place where the impossible is real, and myths and legends walk slyly in shadow. A world that Elizabeth will learn she too is a member.

Now, the three are caught up in a thousand year long conspiracy they never could have imagined. The three must rely on one another and the secret connection they all share if they have a chance to survive.

My Review

 Received this book from author in exchange for an honest review!!
I don't know about any one else but this was a new concept for me. I must admit at first I thought oh great another love triangle of the twilight verity,I am not a fan of love triangles and this one was okay for me not great but okay, but this was so much more the love triangle was there sure but the most prominent part of the story was about balance and the idea that everything happens for a reason. I also really liked that the story was a lot more complex then I thought I could be and I was also surprised about how her mothers story was a part of it all.
  I really enjoyed how it was spiritual in a nature sort of way, it was good vs evil the nature edition, I was pleased with that so much of the good vs evil is angels and daemons or heaven and hell making it all a bit to spiritual for me in a religious way, this story gave the balance of nature the spiritual aspect and I found it refreshing. Elizabeth was like the glue of this group keeping them grounded and centered and I enjoyed the balance between them and I also like the contrast that Michel and Vincint created they were like opposite sides of the same coin whether they would admit it or not.
There is so much to be discovered and I want every one to discover it for them selves so I will not spoil anything but what I will say is this is an awesome new idea and I think this book was a great first to what I am sure will be a very adventurous and fun series.
