Review # 107: The Twelfth Keeper- Belle Malory

Summary: When sixteen-year-old Kennedy Mitchell is proclaimed the world’s last keeper, she thinks it’s a cruel joke. Come on- her? Impossible. She’s no warrior. She isn’t wise beyond her years, or more importantly, capable of keeping Earth safe.

Except...no one will listen. And since all evidence says otherwise, the job is hers whether she likes it or not.

During the highly demanding training regime that follows, Kennedy struggles to fit in with Earth’s renowned protectors. Especially Phoenix Jorgensen, who openly despises her. Problem is, he may be the only one she can trust. The keepers have big secrets surrounding them. Secrets Kennedy isn’t comfortable knowing, much less being apart of. With Phoenix’s help, she’ll have to find a way out.

Either that, or die trying.

Rating: 4/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. 

This was a great read by Belle Malory. I found it hard to classify it into just one genre. It was sci- fi, dystopian and even a little bit paranormal and I loved every bit of it. I liked the whole idea of the charcters living in a space station, it was fresh scenery for me lol. I felt like the author did a great job to describe the location and the events that take place in the novel but there are also a lot of unanswered questions. I would have liked to learn more about each of the twelve keepers, I felt like we only get to know Kennedy and a little about Pheinix and even less about the others. I think this series will be epic because there are so many more areas for the author to touch on.
Kennedy is a brave and selfless character. She did something she was uncomfortable doing to help out her family, in other words she took one for the team. She also believes in doing what is right even if it almost gets you killed.i can't wait to continue the series to watch Kennedy grow. Phoenix is a mysterious character, but over the course of the novel slowly begins to let down his walls. And I am falling for him ;) I want desperately to know where their relationship goes from here and to see if a have a shot with Phoenix lol. 
I will of course be carrying on this series. I need to know all of the answers to the questions asked, I would recommend this book to all YA readers and fans of YA books. Also I would recommend this book to sci-fi lovers and those who enjoy a good dystopian or paranormal read.

About this author

I don't consider myself a writer. I'm a storyteller.

My two great loves are books and coffee. If it weren't for books, my heart wouldn't feel as full. And if it weren't for coffee, I wouldn't know what mornings are. That being said, the guy at Starbucks knows me well. He sings to me sometimes.

I live in Orlando, Florida with my family and two rescue mutts. Their personalities are like night and day. One is gold. The other is black. The gold one doesn't like to sleep in. Before I've had my coffee, we are enemies.
