In their new Keeper roles, these extraordinary women must balance the fate of the world with their desires…

New Keeper Rhiannon Gryffald has her peacekeeping duties cut out for her—because in Hollywood, it’s hard to tell the actors from the werewolves, bloodsuckers and shape-shifters. Then Rhiannon hears about a string of murders that bear all the hallmarks of a vampire serial killer, and she must confront her greatest challenge yet. Together with Elven detective Brodie McKay, they head to Laurel Canyon, epicenter of the danger, where they uncover a plot that may forever alter the face of human-paranormal relations.
(Goodreads Synopsis)

On the whole, I enjoyed this book more than the prequel, The Gatekeeper. As a longer novel, it had a little more grunt and there was more time for Ms Graham to develop the plot and the characters.

The storyline kept my interest even though it didn't feel like anything I hadn't read before. The characters were okay; although, I would have liked a little more depth in their personalities as at times they came across a little stereotypical and bland.

Still, this is a good general paranormal romance for those who like the genre and aren't looking for anything overly inspired. If you come to this book expecting nothing more than a bit of fun and some romance, then you won't be disappointed. If you're looking for something to redefine the genre, this probably isn't the book for you.
