The Keepers: Archer

For this blog post I decided to do things differently, so while I saw reading the book I kept a journal of my reactions after each day of reading. Now without further adieu prepare for the awesomeness of The Keepers: Archer.

Description Provided by Goodreads: ‘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?

Well, let's just say that these three gorgeous, six-packed abs, and lovable guys are definitely keepers, oh and did I mention that they wear black tailored suits (insert fangirl squeal). Although I love all three brothers, Declan, Archer, and Ethan, I have to admit that Archer is my favorite.

August.1.2013: For the first couple of pages I thought I was reading the second book in a series because they hinted at her running away from something and her already knowing she was a witch and other things such as her having a deep connection with Archer. This had me confused because I felt as if the character were saying inside jokes and I didn't know what was going on but I kept reading and as the story goes along we get more glimpses into her past and Archer's past. That's when things started to make sense and I could actually star enjoying the book without thinking I had missed a whole book before this one. Once I was able to enjoy it completely I fell in love with the characters. I don't think that's ever happened before, me falling in love with the characters so quickly. I love archer's protective qualities and his charm.

August.2.2013: One curveball after another in the middle of the story line and near the end was just so unexpected. I didn't think this would ever happen. What's going to happen next? Can it be taken back? I loved how Sienna grew into her powers because at the beginning she was afraid to use her powers, had run away because of all the power she had, and hadn't used her powers in two years. I especially love when she goes to Warrick's house the second time, she reminded me of Evie from Poison Princess. After the first and second twists in the plot, I thought I knew how the book was going to end and how the rest of the series would probably play out but boy was I wrong. There were more twists and turns and unexpected events. Lets just say that at no point in this book was I ever bored with it or did I want to put it down. And the secrecy. I can probably say that I will die of cursory just like the cat so not knowing what this big secret is, is killing me and it keeps me reading.

Overall: The book is high paced and in the first three chapters Rae Rivers drew me into this world of witches, forbidden love, and regrets. The way the story line is set made me more curious and it made me want to read the book more because I really wanted to know the details of Archer and Sienna's relationship, the full extent of what happened when Sarah was murdered, and the importance of Sienna and her powers to Warrick. The twists and turns, the action, the suspense!!! This books was amazing!!!

Ranking: I would rank this book a 9.
