I did promise I would try to do more than one review a day, since I’m way behind on the posts and I have a goal in mind, which means I’m trying my best to accomplish it.
“Keepers” written by Sacha de Black is a YA Fantasy book, the first book in The Eden East series, published on November 4th 2017, and the second book in the series is called Victor and was published July 1st 2018.
First of all I want to thank Sacha for the opportunity to read her wonderful book and start this a journey in this new world with the first book in her series. Plus, I wanted to apologize for taking so long to get the review done.
Saving the world is easy: all Eden has to do is die.
Seventeen-year-old Eden East’s life is perfect… until her soul is bound to her worst nightmare. Then her parents are brutally murdered, and everyone’s a suspect, including her best friend.
As her world spirals out of control, a charismatic Siren, from a past she can’t remember, returns offering help, hope, and a heap of distractions.
Eden must put aside her grief to solve the mystery of her parents’ murder. In a race against time, can she break the binding to her enemy before he destroys her and her world?
Two murdered parents.
One deadly choice.

Don’t forget to add this book to your TBR list on Goodreads.
Sacha writes books about people with magical powers and other books about the art of writing. She lives in Hertfordshire, England, with her wife and genius, giant of a son.
When she’s not writing, she can be found laughing inappropriately loud, blogging, sniffing musty old books, fangirling film and TV soundtracks, or thinking up new ways to break the rules.
First of all let me tell you guys that I loved this book, I want that opinion to be out there before I go it to more details of the things I loved about this book. It’s the first book in the series and I hope I get to read Victor next year.
Sacha de Black created and amazingly complex and well crafted world, Trutinor, and I could try to explain it, but that would take out the fun for all of those that haven’t read it, so I recommend you guys to read the book and understand all the rules of Trutinor page after page. And the fact that it’s a complex and well built world show how much work the author putted in her book and that makes me appreciate it even more because it was absolutely amazing.
Now the characters… We follow Eden East, epic name by the way, and she the main character of this book a strong but also vulnerable character, that was just relatable and intriguing. Eden, like all the characters in this book, isn’t black and white. They all have flaws and you can see their development and every chance, which makes them feel real.
There are a lot of characters, from Keepers to Fallons… Every single one serves a role in this world and were dynamic characters, and it all played well with the plot, the world, the action and the pace. It may be a fantasy novel, but that doesn’t mean it’s not as real as any other book, that’s because of Sacha’s ability to create a reality in a fictional, new world, book.
That been said, the novel has a lot of elements that turned a great recipe into an even greater final product. From the world building and the characters to the exciting, fun and action-packed plot. Every twist and turn, every new information I uncover, every little element about the world and the storyline I understood better, and every action scene made the novel flow smoothly.
And in the end, it made me get focus and feel I was in that journey with the characters. That happened because of the author’s writing style and awesome descriptions. A good action scene could be exciting and epic, but it would really grab my attention hundred percent if it didn’t made my mind fill up with all the images, sounds, smells, sensations, adrenaline and emotion. And Sacha de Black did that in her book, she gave us visuals to her book in the form of well thought out word combinations.
Overall, I just want to say that I loved the book and that I can’t wait to be able to read the next one and to keep going into the depth of this world and series.
