“…the whole book felt luke warm”
~ Under the Covers

I love a book with a misunderstood, overlooked or unusual heroine. So, when I saw that the heroine in this was probably all of those things I jumped on the change to read. The fact that it was a paranormal romance was just the cherry on top, I’m always of the opinion that magic in a book can only make it better! However, this wasn’t quite the case with The Magician’s Keeper. I desperately wanted to like it, instead I found myself bored.

Was it the characters? Maybe. Although I liked them all well enough, I wasn’t swooning over the hero or cheering on the heroine. And the romance between them, although it was supposed to an instant attraction never seemed that passionate to me. Even if they did that thing which equally amuses and frustrates me when, halfway through being chased by enemies they decide to stop for some hanky panky.

Much like the romance, the whole book felt luke warm. The story was okay, but nothing that made me want to read without stopping, once again I found myself reading just to get to the end rather than out of sheer enjoyment. I didn’t mind the world, where being magical meant that you were persecuted, but I don’t think this aspect of the story was really capitalised or explored. Instead, the book focused more on the romance, which I wouldn’t mind if the romance was more interesting, more explosive, more emotionally charged, just more.

Unfortunately, although from the blurb this had elements that I know I normally enjoy, it didn’t hit the spot for me.
