My Review:

Rating 4 out of 5 

I rated this a 4 because it is very well written and has very well rounded characters. I loved the action and the clues the author blended into the story along the way. The book kept me enthralled through most of the book. I did however have a few issues. This book is being sold as a Paranormal Romance when in actuality it belongs in Christian Paranormal Romance. It has several references to the bible and often, especially towards the end, tries to sway the audience to "get their Jesus on" as my daughter would say.  This was the only reason why I marked it off, other wise I could have put aside my personal feelings about the book and moved on. 

I had some issues with the content that I could not take off for because they were personal. The author puts witches, alchemists and even ghosts in the story in a way that makes them on the side of evil. I could go on a whole tangent about this, but since this is a book review and not a debate, I will just say I disagree and move on. 

The book is one I would recommend to those that are deeply Christian or are wanting to get saved with Christianity. I fell in love with the book early on and pulled through the story despite my dislike of the preachy quality at the end. 

Synopsis:

A year after her parents’ death, seventeen-year-old, Meadow Parker is close to having a grave of her own

Beyond her shrink’s false diagnosis of PTSD, there’s no medical reason for her failing health. Only she knows the cause. But if Meadow told the truth—told them what comes for her at night—they’d lock her in a padded cell.

Grasping to help her find closure, Meadow’s best friend, Casey Somner, drags her to the place her parents were obsessed with—the historical landmark that fuels Meadow’s fears and nightmares.

Once Meadow steps foot on the hallowed ground, she has a supernatural encounter that leaves her stricken with terror, but charged with power, fulfilling the legendary prophesy about the coming of The Keeper.

Both the holy and the unholy have waited over a hundred years for a new Keeper to resurface. Like it or not, Meadow’s destiny as Keeper is sealed, and the battle for her soul begins. A sharp double-edged sword, she will either save the world from Armageddon or fast track its annihilation.
