The Keepers: Archer (The Keepers #1) by Rae Rivers

The Keepers: Archer
 
Summary:
 
‘Don’t ever look for me again, Archer.’
His mouth curled into a smile. ‘Game on.’

Central Park. Sienna Beckham is out jogging in the autumn sun, feeling almost ordinary. Trouble is, she'll never be. She's on the run from her life as a powerful witch and the three Keepers blood-bound to protect her.

Evil is hot on Sienna's tail and Archer Bennett is searching for her, desperate to find her before they do. As one of her Keepers, he will fight to his death to defend her.

Sienna must return and defend her hometown, Rapid Falls – but she has to face the past and master her powers. And as forbidden feelings blossom between Sienna and Archer, will their love survive the ultimate war?

The Keepers: three strong and handsome warrior brothers, born to protect.

Back in the latter bit of 2013 I had the pleasure to read both The Keepers: Sienna and The Keepers: Archer. The first one was a Kindle freebie and the second, The Keepers: Archer was curtesy of Rae Rivers passing along my request to her publisher which got me approved for the ARC.
 
I was so impressed with the first novella in the series that when I got to Archer's book I was so excited to see where things were going to go since the first book was a prequel novella I had a lot of unanswered questions about Sienna, Archer the rest of the Bennetts and their enemies.
 
Right from the get go the story caught me. While some books can seem too busy if there's a lot of action, River's was able to utilize all the action in the book to give context to the emotions of the various characters and let me tell you this right now, there was a lot of emotion.

I liked that Sienna struggled with her powers and her love for Archer and I think that the fact that while the book is centered around Sienna I thought we got to know her cohorts (keepers) quite well in the first (full length) book in the series though I do have many questions left unanswered that I hope to have resolved in the next book. Aside from Archer and Sienna, I liked Archer's brothers Declan and Ethan a lot. I thought they added much to the story and I liked how they weren't afraid to speak their minds. I'd actually say that the whole cast of characters are extremely head strong and I loved it.

Overall, I'd say this was a spectacular first book in a series and I'm so very glad that I had the opportunity to read and review it. The writing was amazing and I loved how the author handled and wrote the different characters so well as well as the plot twists. The only complaint I have was that a couple parts in the book were a little rushed (for me) and I wish the book was maybe 15 pages longer. Other than that it was wonderful and I cannot wait to read book two.

I would recommend this to all fans of anything with witches, romance and lots of action!
