Don’t let my rating sway you. I really did like this novella. It was packed with action, good writing and just enough romance to keep it interesting. I think my only issue was that there was SO much packed into this short read. There were also a lot of characters and paranormals introduced. The power and mythology of each was unique and The Gatekeeper did lay enough foundation to make me want to grab the first book in the series to see exactly where The Keepers: LA takes readers. Since that’s pretty much the purpose of a prequel novella, which is currently FREE no less, I can’t complain too much. I just wanted a little bit more to the story in some parts and a little less series set-up in others. I know, picky, picky, picky… *sigh* The first book in the series is Keeper of the Night and it is due to be released on December 18, 2012.
