#BookReview: Keeper (Keeper Duology #1) by Kim Chance

Synopsis: When a 200-year-old witch attacks her, sixteen-year-old bookworm Lainey Styles is determined to find a logical explanation.

 Even with the impossible staring her in the face, Lainey refuses to believe it—until she finds a photograph linking the witch to her dead mother.

After consulting a psychic, Lainey discovers that she, like her mother, is a Keeper: a witch with the exclusive ability to unlock and wield the Grimoire, a dangerous but powerful spell book. But there’s a problem. 

The Grimoire has been stolen by a malevolent warlock who is desperate for a spell locked inside it—a spell that would allow him to siphon away the world’s magic.

With the help of her comic-book-loving best friend and an enigmatic but admittedly handsome street fighter, Lainey must leave her life of college prep and studying behind to prepare for the biggest test of all: stealing back the book.

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟
My Review: Well I tried to love this one but unfortunately I think I might be a little to old for this one.  It reads at times like a young adult title but then at others it feels more middle grade.  It started out with just the right amount of snark and a mystery man saving our heroine.  And I fell in love!! But as the pages kept turning I found myself just wanting something to happen.  I really felt like something was missing from this story I am not sure what it was but something was just a little off.  The setting of the book did not match the cover at all.  And although I loved the cover I think something else would have been a better choice.  

Overall, I think this one just lacked that spark that I was looking for and it lacked something to keep my attention.

"Senior girls hooked on soap operas and the supernatural will be big Lainey fans." --VOYA
