Welcome to my post for the Paranormal Keepers book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for a copy of Paranormal Keepers and a custom bookmark. But, first, allow me to introduce the book:

Paranormal Keepers
Release date: March 11, 2014
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Series: Paranormal Keepers #1

Everyone thinks Harper Young killed her boyfriend. No one will say it to her face, but the signs are everywhere.

It’s almost been a year since Gavin was torn from Harper’s arms and brutally murdered. The police wrote it off as a freak accident, deciding Harper’s strange testimony was given under duress. But she knows something unnatural was involved and refuses to stop looking until she finds his killer, even if it means her reputation as a senior is ruined. Even if it means there really are monsters living among us.

With the discovery of the mothmen, witches, vampires and all the creatures she always suspected were out there, Harper finds herself amidst a complex bundle of unseen heroes who call themselves “Keepers”, sworn to keep the secret of the paranormal creatures that walk this earth. As she tries to understand what’s so special about her that she’s able to break an old Keeper law, Harper has a baffling vision of kissing a mysterious guy before a blade is brought down on him. Before she can get a handle on her future, she becomes central to a battle between the questionable “heroes” and the evil she’s been training to fight, leaving her to wonder if there’s any way to change the fate that has been foretold before it’s too late.

My Rating: 4 Roses

Paranormal Keepers was a wonderful YA paranormal read. It reminded me a lot of the show Supernatural (which is a good thing because I love that show), with its mythology and terminology. It had thrills, secrets, and a few unexpected twists along the way and I enjoyed it all.

Harper was a great heroine. She was thrown into an entirely new situation and kept both her head and her sense of humor. She was tough, clever, and a truly likable character.

Dexter was the love interest in this book and he was wonderful. He stood by Harper no matter what and he was very sweet with how he treated her. I thought he was a delight.

The romance was light but well done. I liked the progression of Harper and Dexter's relationship, going from infatuated friends to a devoted couple. After the events of this book, I'm hoping that they manage to hold on to a happy ending.

The plot moved quickly and kept me interested the entire way through. There were twists along the way, as well as an unexpected secret that really took me by surprise. I enjoyed the story and the ending has me curious about what will come next.

I really liked Paranormal Keepers. It was an enjoyed YA paranormal romance that had a few surprises along the way. YA lovers, this is a book worth checking out.
