Sienna Beckham is a powerful witch, and along with her four fiercely protective Keepers, it is her destiny to maintain the balance of nature in this world.
Tonight, it’s the town carnival and everyone will be there: Sienna’s family; her friends; her protectors. Archer.
Laughter and flirtation await.
But in a few hours, Sienna’s life will have changed forever and her powers stretched to their very limits.For something is lurking in the forest…
Murder. Sorcery. Revenge.
And no one sees it coming.

Rae contacted me as part of Harper Impulse Fortnight to see if I would be interested in reviewing The Keepers: Declan, so I looked up the book and while I was dying to read it, I had a little issue. Declan was not the first book in the series and I am a bit of a stickler for reading books in the order they should be in. So I logged on to Amazon to find that Sienna (book 0.5) was free. I instantly downloaded it. I was almost halfway through Sienna when I knew I had to read the rest of the series. Rae has kindly emailed me copies which I will be reviewing shortly.

So back to the story. Sienna is a witch who has just inherited her grandmothers powers. (Side note: Now I am not sure how the powers were passed to Sienna and I am hoping this is something we discover as the series continues.) Sienna has 4 Keepers Archer, Sarah, Ethan and Declan. These four are sworn to keep Sienna safe at all times.

Now I am not going to go into too much detail on the story as this is only a prequel and under 100 pages. I will however say that it is fast paced, explosive and exciting.
I raced through page after page and couldn’t put it down. I was not prepared for so much to happen in such a short book. Rae makes the best use of every single word. There is nothing on the page for filler. There is nothing that wastes your time.
I have to say that this had an interesting ending and I am very much looking forward to reading Archer and Declan.
