Review: Keeper Of Crows by Casey L. Bond

Standard

Carmen Kennedy is a spoiled brat from Beverly Hills with a chip on her shoulder and a cocaine addiction to match. Using drugs to suppress reality, her life is more than she can stomach most days. All she wants is to disappear, and on one fateful night, her wish is granted.

There is a world that exists just beyond the fabric of our own. When Carmen is dragged there against her will, her hopelessness seems to disappear, replaced by a determination to survive. The Keeper of Crows is charged with guarding Carmen, but is safety a possibility in a world so desolate? Can love blossom when danger lies in wait? Together, they fight like hell, seeming to lose more ground than they gain with each battle against the dark enemy threatening to tear them apart. Can love keep her safe? Can it give her the strength she needs?

When the lines between life and death, reality and dream become blurred, who will save the souls trapped in the spaces between Heaven and Hell? Who will save Carmen’s only love, The Keeper of Crows?

Keeper of Crows is a new paranormal romance duology from the author of The Frenzy Series. The book does contain adult material such as profanity, illicit drug use and sexual situations.

Keeper of Crows is a dark and gritty Paranormal Romance by Casey L. Bond.  Her main character has a chip on her shoulder that may be more accurately described as the Grand Canyon.  She’s hard to like, but eventually, you get there.  Carmen goes through an epic journey that leads her to do some soul searching (literally haha) and Michael is the paranormal guy who helps guide her through it.  But he’s not just ANY hot paranormal guy…he’s the Keeper of Crows

So this book is unlike any PNR that I’ve read.  The heroine is a spoiled rich girl who ends giphyup in a bad way (okay that’s kind of like some stuff I’ve read before 😉 ). Carmen finds herself on a journey through both our world and the Other Side and she has to grow up quick.  I really enjoyed reading this book and I’m eager to see how the story plays out. I was surprised with how much I ended up rooting for Carmen and Michael towards the end.  The writing is phenomenal and the situations are very real in some circumstances. It also deals with some heavy subject matter (if you look deeper into the text).  I would recommend this book to just about everyone! It’s YA PNR, but it has some dark moments, drug use, and sex scenes, so reader beware; probably not recommended for middle graders. I’m giving it a

Carmen finds herself on a journey through both our world and the Other Side and she has to grow up quick.  I really enjoyed reading this book and I’m eager to see how the story plays out. I was surprised with how much I ended up rooting for Carmen and Michael (The Keeper of Crows) towards the end.  The writing is phenomenal and the situations are very real in some circumstances. It also deals with some heavy subject matter like human trafficking, drug addiction, depression, suicide, and emotional abuse (that’s what I took from it, you may see something different). I would recommend this book to just about everyone! It’s YA PNR, but it has some dark moments, drug use, and sex scenes, so reader beware; probably not recommended for middle graders. I’m giving it a 5 out of 5 Stars and keeping it in my “permanent” folder for future rereads.
