    Welcome to a world where Werewolves Vampires Shapeshifters and Elven live among us Very few Humans know of their existence that is because the story takes place in LA LA Land also known as Hollywood The city where everyone wants their 'big break' and where the 'Others' are able to blend in without anyone suspecting a thingThe Keepers are individuals who are born into their position and are destined to enforce the Laws of 'The Others' and to ensure peace between the races and the HumansRhiannon Gryffald is the new Keeper of the Canyon Vampires and has to learn fast as well as establish her role as Keeper uickly in order to fulfill her duty to her charges When Rhianna hears about a string of murders that appear to be committed by a Vampire she has to use all of her wits to find the perpetrator and prevent any murders from being committedRhianna teams up with Elven detective Brodie Mckay who has been working undercover trying to solve these murders The chemistry between Rhianna and Brody is sizzling and soon they find themselves in the situation of trying to separate business from pleasureAs their investigation continues Rhianna and Brodie soon realize that the murderers are closer to them than they thoughtI really enjoyed reading this story This is the first book I've read written by Heather Graham and I won't be the last The story and writing was really good but I found the characters a little shallow I would have liked for them to had a little bit depth and character buildingIf your looking for a new light paranormal romance then I recommend this series to you ARC provided by Harleuin Nocturne via Netgalley

    This was fun and an enjoyable way to spend a few hoursRhiannon and her cousins are the new Keepers of OTHERS in LA Rhiannon is the Keeper of the Vampires and her cousins Keepers of the Elven and the Shapeshifters Each of the women although human can take on some of the skills and gifts of their charges This was a new way to look at vampires and the supernatural The cousins have been thrown into their jobs as Keepers as their fathers have been promoted to the ruling council Lots of info was put into this book but it seemed necessary to meI don't think anyone will blame me if I picture a LotR Elf for Detective Brodie McKay Elven undercover cop and actor I loved him all golden tall and sexy Bodies have shown up that appear to have been killed by a vampire but is that just what the killer wants the Keepers and the Police to think?The mystery was fun to read and the side of romance was sweetly steamy I think the best part is that this sets up a couple books to follow Is Sailor as vapid as she appears on the surface? Is Barrie going to notice that guy who is so very into her? Yes I want to find out the answers to these uestions And I'd love to see Rhiannon and Brodie tooThanks NetGalley and Harleuin for the opportunity to read this fast paced romp

    Traditional Heather Graham As we know from the synopsis this book is about Rhiannon who is keeper of the vampires It’s her job to keep everyone on the straight and narrow Easier said than done especially in LA Plus she is new to the job and is being tested to see if she can handle her new responsibilities There are two cousins who are also keepers Barrie Keeper of the Shapeshifters and Sailor Keeper of the Elven It’s nice to have a go to author for when I want to read some thing I know will be light and fun This book did not disappoint It was fast paced a mystery with some romance on the side In the hands of Ms Graham this story line is always entertainingHere’s what is really cool Ms Graham has joined with Harley Jane Kozak and Alexandra Sokoloff to write what is to be a four book series What I do know is the next book is called Keeper of the Moon by Ms Kozak an author I have never read so I am looking forward to this bookIf Keeper of the Night as any indication of what is to come I think this series is going to be a blastThank you to Harleuin and Netgalley for allowing me to read this in exchange for an unbiased reviewPublish date December 18 201235 of 5

    This was a first for me with this author I did not like this book The writing style was very different for me and the world they lived in was just as confusing since nothing was very descriptive I have not read her other Keeper series so maybe that is why I didn't uite understand what was going on It was like the author just expected you to know I think it would of been nice if she had recapped their world a little bit for those of us new to the series I felt lost and could not connect to the characters due to this I found myself skimming through pages until about half way through the book when I realized I wasn't really getting anything out of it or the pleasure you are suppose to find while reading I don't know maybe paranormal is no longer my thing but the synopsis of the book was very exciting to me I was actually looking forward to this read Was a bit disappointed it was a fail for meSeems my DNF shelf is stacking up latelyI was provided with this book from the publisher for free via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review thank you

    The big thing that makes this book and series much different from the original Keeper series featuring the three MacDonald sisters as keepers Vampire Shapeshifter and Wolven in New Orleans is that paranormal speciesraces come into play as characters In the original series we saw things such as demons as they inhabited mostly human bodies but there were no Elven gnomes fairies or anything else I really enjoyed the addition of these other species Right away in this book we get an introduction to the Elven with Brodie The Elven are imbued with charm and easily get what they want They are typically tall and immensely beautiful making Hollywood and the acting career perfect for them They also have superior strength and the ability to read minds Similar to Fiona in The Keepers Rhiannon is thrust into her position as the Vampire Keeper well ahead of schedule due to unforeseen events Because of this both the MacDonald sisters and the Gryffald cousins are forced to learn as they go without much for guidance from those who should've been there to teach them the ropes Like Fiona Rhiannon's effectiveness is doubted by those in the Canyon She is in a position where she needs to prove herself a tall order considering the greatness of her father as the Canyon Vampire KeeperI really enjoyed seeing the similarities and differences between the two series The sisters and cousins found themselves in similar situations but not identical by any means In the original the sisters all live in separate wings of one house In this series the cousins all live on the same compound but in different houses The MacDonald sisters own and run a shop in New Orleans while the Gryffald cousins are all making a living separately Rhiannon as a singermusician Sailor as an actress and Barrie as an investigative reporter Something else I've noticed and found interesting about the the two series is that the first book in both is that of the Vampire Keeper who also happens to be the oldest of the family members Both of said books are written by Heather Graham The Shapeshifter Keeper in both series is in the middle as far as age is concerned and the books are written by Alexandra Sokoloff The divergence comes with the youngest of the trios The youngest in the two series are Keepers of two different species and written by two different authors It makes me wonder if there would be further Elven or Wolven Keeper books would they be written by Harley Jane Kozak and Deborah Leblanc respectively?This book is HEA with no cliffhanger I am very excited to see what this series has to offer in future books

    This is the problem with veing the new paranormal keeper on the block So many people want to take you out in frivolous methods and sometimes on the behalf of the stupidity of otherI am curious enough to want to know what other things could actually happen in this crossbreed both humans and others novel of epic portion

    None of the characters were appealing; they were all neurotic and self centered The three women were supposed to rein in the supernatural species in their specific areas and if they weren't whining about being tossed into the role too soon they were flirting with various males or dashing about like chickens with no heads

    KEEPER OF THE NIGHT The Keepers LA #1 by Heather GrahamABOUT THE BOOK Released December 2012In their new Keeper roles these extraordinary women must balance the fate of the world with their desiresNew 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 relationsREVIEW Heather Graham Alexandra Sokoloff and Deborah Leblanc had previous written a trio of books known as The Keeper Trilogy The Keeper The Shifters The Wolven KEEPER OF THE NIGHT The Keepers LA #1 is the first storyline written by Heather Graham in their new spinoff trilogy focusing on the daughters all cousins of the original Keepers who have been called to take their seats at the Council of the Others Although this particular series is a spin off the first storyline can be read as a stand alone without too much trouble But there is a caveat at the end of my reviewThe Keepers are in essence –the Law they reside over the different paranormal and supernatural species Elven Vampire Wolven Shifter etc known as the ‘Others’ Keepers are born and it is their destiny to oversee and enforce the law Keeper of the Night focuses on Vampire Keeper Rhiannon Gryffald and Elven detective Brodie McKay Although the Keepers are NOT vampire wolven etc they do bare some of the powers and abilities of their brethren Keeper of the Night finds new Keeper Rhiannon Gryffald as she embarks on her first official investigation that places her into a world of rotting corpses hidden secrets and an ensemble of actors who want nothing than to make it big in Hollywood But when the dead and missing are somehow connected to the local theatre group Rhiannon finds herself with an unlikely partner Elven Detective Brodie McKay But Brodie is undercover as a member of the acting community and to keep his guise a secret Rhiannon and Brodie must act like a couple to keep the cast from discovering Brodie’s true identity But play acting as lovers soon leads to the real thing and it will be Brodie who finds himself guardian and protector of the Keeper of the NightKeeper of the Night is difficult to rate Although I said that this storyline could be read as a stand alone some background information regarding Keepers and their destiny would have been helpful to start a new series especially a spin off where there are already established characters and storylines a little background data would have been appreciated I kept thinking What IS a Keeper? How did they come to be? What is the history between Keepers and the Others? I am a big fan of authors who include the pertinent background information in each successive storyline It keeps the series and premise coherent I hope the next author will think to include some of the Keeper historyThere is a preuel novella available for FREE from The Gatekeeper I had hope that the Gatekeeper would have revealed background information but it was only an introduction to this particular series and the main characters are not involved in Keeper of the Night in fact they have nothing to do with the first novel at allOverall this storyline was okay It won’t top my list of re reads and I will probably not read it again I was disappointed Even the relationship and romance between Rhiannon and Brodie seemed forced I did not feel the chemistry or even the tension between the couple and it was about 23 of the way through before any one on one time was had And in that I did not feel the connectionCopy supplied by Netgalley

    BOOK SYNOPSIS 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 My Thoughts When I first discovered Heather Graham years ago it was under her alias of Shannon Drake her paranormal romance suspense thrillers were a breath of fresh air and I read as many of them as possible In the intervening years since the author has kept me as a fan as she kept penning book after book that spanned the genres of mystery thriller to paranormal romance to contemporary suspense and once again in returning to her Keeper series her work still provides me with enjoymentThis time the setting is Los Angeles the City of Angels and importantly revolves around the Hollywood players that are made up off all types of supernatural beings as well as human The story is intense and there are going to be times when the descriptions of the murder victims may make the reader sueamish as it can get pretty graphic but to truly get a feel for how hard it is to solve the crimes that part of the story is necessary to emphasize the challenge faced by both the Keeper's and the policeRhiannon and her cousins Barrie and Sailor are the newest LA Keepers since they replaced their fathers Rhiannon is the Keeper of the Vampires Barrie is the Keeper for the Shifters and Sailor is the Keeper for the Elven and all three women are untried as they were not really ready to assume a role they each thought would not be something they had to deal with until later on in their lives not in their early 20'sYoung though the cousins may be they step up to the plate to fulfill their duties admirably and the ensuing action that this story revolves around is very thought provoking very excitingly set up and kept me totally engrossed in the book from start to finish As a romantic suspenseurban fantasy read I thought that it was one of the better stories that has come out in this series so far As we follow the series we will find out what kind of trials and tribulations as well as romantic entanglements are in store for Barrie and Sailor in the next books releasing in March and May Keepers of The Moon The Keeper's LA #2 and Keeper Of The Shadows Keeper's LA #3I really enjoyed this one Hollywood crazies and a murder mystery together was very well matched EArc from Netgalley in exchange for honest review
