Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway! -- Keeper by Ingrid Seymour

About the Book

Keeper by Ingrid Seymour
The Morphid Chronicles (Omnibus Edition)
400 pages/ Young Adult

For them, free will is a luxury . . .

Greg Papilio both wants and dreads his impending metamorphosis. He's tired of being an ugly runt--always picked last on the basketball court--when he could be strong and what girls call "drop dead gorgeous." But as much as he looks forward to the transformation, he also fears the caste it will inevitably assign to him. He doesn't want a common caste. He wants a powerful one, a cool one.

Samantha Gibson is average. She's short and a little full around the hips--a terribly cute look for a future chef. She's two years away from culinary school, from her uncaring parents, and from carving a perfectly Human future. She wants independence, a career and a quiet life of her own.

Except fate couldn't care less about what Greg and Samantha want and gives them exactly the opposite. Greg's metamorphosis assigns him a caste that enslaves him, while Samantha's chance to attend Le Cordon Bleu is taken away. But things are never as interesting as when Ashby--an intriguing blonde with a hidden identity--enters her life with a splash.

Greg's fate is to be Samantha's Keeper, to protect her at a time when someone wants her dead. He will stop at nothing to ensure her safety, even if her secret past proves deadly, even if he's keeping her safe for someone else.

Wow, this was a spectacular read. I flew through it, not wanting to stop for anything... I was hooked to these characters. Keeper follows a bunch of characters and they are all interesting and easy to read about/ in their point of view. There is Sam, Greg, and Ashby but most of what you read is in the POVs of Sam and Greg. The book follows these characters as they learn who they are in a complex world of lies, ignorance, and deceit. It was SO good!

It is hard to write a review that would give this book justice without giving away all the good parts -- I guess what you need to know is that Sam is a girl who is struggling with many realizations about herself including the fact that she has a guardian and there are strange hot guys suddenly taking interest in her. There is Greg, who is a recently-morphed Morphid, whose caste is not a normal one at all and he has no idea what to do except help Sam. And then finally there is Ashby, who is a prince so to speak and he is trying to figure out his place in the regency without treading too much on his mother's scary toes. 

These characters and more clash in a story that is overwhelmingly fun to read. The characters are all interesting and I loved reading more from each of them, then on top of all of this the plot was wonderfully put together. I was on the edge of my seat (literally while reading at my computer at work during lunch break) the whole time. Even the day to day troubles of 'normal' Sam where complex and captivating.

I highly recommend this book to Young Adult Fantasy lovers.
