The Keeper of Night by Kylie Lee Baker – Our Review
‘The Keeper of Night’ is a dark and thrilling, YA fantasy that is an indulgent and engaging escapist read.
Ren Scarborough has been skulking the streets at night in London for centuries, devouring countless souls. Intriguingly Ren, is half British Reaper and half Japanese Shinigami, and has always felt on the outer and as though she didn’t quite belong. In London, she has kept her Shinigami powers under control, until one night she loses control and injures some High Reapers.
The consequences are grave, and Ren flees to Japan with her half brother Neven. Here she hopes to be accepted for her Shinigami heritage, and is soon embarking on a quest to prove her worth to the Goddess of Death. As Ren serves the underworld, she must decide just how far she will go to claim her place in the hierarchy.
Exciting, adventurous and filled with brilliant mythology. Perfect for YA readers and adults who enjoy the fantasy genre. News suggests that a second book will be released to follow on, so fingers crossed we don’t have to wait too long for it to be released!
