Warning: This book has some mind blowing twists, turns and unexpected revelations.

Barrymore (Barrie) Gryffald is the Keeper for Shapeshifters in LA. When one of her teenage charges, a street kid named Tiger, is found murdered Barry pulls out all the stops to find his killer. The same night Tiger is killed by an OD, another famous movie mogul is killed by the same drug found in Tiger system. The connection, the tragic murder of Tiger is surprisingly similar to a 15 yr old death of an famous teen
3.5 stars = I liked it - Barrie uses her position as Hollywood beat reporter to keep an eye out for supernaturals misbehaving, because her day job is Keeper to the Shifters of Los Angeles. When a young shifter is found dead, Barrie connects the dots to another high profile murder, and while she's trying to keep her investigation on the down low, fellow journalist Mick ends up just one step ahead of her every time she tries to pursue a lead. But Mick's more than willing to team up, even though Ba ...more

My Thoughts

This one was just as much fun as the previous two. Barrie really kicks butt and doesn’t hesitate to jump right into the middle of the action. She’s feisty and takes her role as Keeper of the Shapeshifters seriously. And then there is Mick - ooh-la-la (need I say more?)

I just love how this trilogy was written. Keeper of the Shadows is the final book, each written by a different author. I thought the author did a great job closing this second trilogy in the Keeper series.

Keeper of the Shadows is the third book on a series focused on three cousins that have inherited from their respective fathers the role of keepers of the supernatural creatures that live incognito in our society. This time, the protagonist is Barrie Gryffald, the Canyon shapeshifter keeper, and the last cousin to have her story told. Besides being a keeper, Barrie is also a journalist and she unites both activities in the inve

I found this series a little late having missed the first book but I have been rather impressed by how each book stands so nicely on its own. It was great checking back in with Sailor and Declan, the stars of the second book, yet I wouldn't have felt the lack of not reading their book in the least.

I just loved Barrie and I really wish that I had her sense of fashion. She is spunky and never gives up though she would probably stay out of trouble if she listened more to the people around her. Mick
This is one series that I can honestly say got better with each installment. Each book, starting with the Prequel (The Gatekeeper) got more intense, more cohesive and the characters gained more depth. I started out reading it just to find out where the story was going. By the time I got to Keeper of the Shadows I not only wanted to know more, I was so invested in the characters I need to know more.

I’ve liked Barrie from the beginning. She always seemed to be the most grounded of the cousins. Not

I found the third book of The Keepers: L.A. series to be an exciting and intriguing read. It was a faced paced story full of mystery and romance.

Mick, the hero of the book was mysterious, with secrets being revealed throughout the book about him and his past. The heroine, Barrie, took her job seriously, and was a character that was easily related too. There was plenty of romance between the Keeper and hero which evolved throughout the book with lots of hot & steamy looks between them. The ro

Rosalind Barrymore “Barrie” Gryffald is a Keeper that works at the Courier in Los Angeles. She works on stories that deal with Other world deaths trying to help keep the Other world a secret from the humans that she works with.

After the death of Saul Mayo, Barrie finds out there is a death of a young shifter named Tiger, who she has been trying to help get off the streets. Barrie realizes that the death of Saul and Tiger is somehow related but she’s not the only one.

Keeper of the Shadows is my 1st Nocturne book, as well as my first win on Goodreads. Read it in 24 hours. Yep, it was that fun. Even with it being the 3rd in L.A. Keepers series, I had no trouble following the story.

Barrie is a journalist, but more importantly a Keeper. She helps keep the peace and the secrets of the Others; those who are vampire, shapeshifter, or elven, among other things. Herein lies the one confusion I had that may have been answered in the previous two stories: How does she

I always find it fascinating how different books in a series can be when they're written by different people. I mean, I read book two not that long ago, and while they feature some of the same characters, the feel was totally different.

Which works, since it's told from a different cousin's perspective.

And just her perspective... which threw me since the last book had the male lead's perspective so I kept flipping pages desperate for some kind of justification for his actions that were clear to m

The Keepers: LA series is a terrific collaboration between authors Heather Graham, Harley Jane Kozak and Alexandra Sokoloff. Each author takes a turn writing about the Gryffald cousins, Rhiannon, Sailor, and Barrie as they settle into their new duties as Keepers of various Others in LA.

Barrie uses her job as a crime beat reporter to keep an eye out for anything that might reveal the existence of the Otherworld. When a young shifter is found dead, she quickly realizes that there's more to his dea

I received this book for free from GoodReads First Reads. This romance follows Barrie who is a crime journalist. But she is also the Keeper of Shapeshifters in LA - she investigates crimes against them, punishes them if they've committed a crime, and keeps the mortals from finding out about them. A new case pops up with the death of Tiger - a young shapeshifter who worked as a prostitute that she had taken to a shelter a few days beforehand. His death seems to be connected to that of a mortal wh ...more
Another really good book for the keepers of Los Angeles, the three cousins are really grown on me and even this last book was as good as the second. In this book we have the shifters keeper and a ver very good and long forgotten shifters, a strange, very strange actor that is a vampire ad a cursed movie. The plot is intriguing and the characters also, could I ask for more as a reader?

Just finished this installment to The Keepers: L.A. I loved this story.
Shifter Keeper Barrie Gryffald has fallen upon the story of a lifetime. Being a journalist, she has discovered that the death of Saul Mayo may be directly related to teen actor Johnny Love. Barrie's problem is keeping Mick Townsend, a cowoker, from discovering the story before she can get all her facts in order to break the story.

One thing I really like about reading a series that has a different author for each book is seeing how each one tells the story because for the most part the plot line of each book is the same but depending on how the story is told we love it, hate it or are somewhat indifferent.

I really liked Barrie I found her to be pretty straight forward and grounded and in general I liked this book much more than the first one.
I did find the story to be pretty predictable, while initially I did not know "wh
One of the best genre romances I've read in ages. She's a brilliant writer. Yes, I did guess who Mick was rather early on, but, the plot twists were so bizarre that they kept me intrigued right to the end. Fantastic. And the romance was hot, too.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have not read any of the other books in this series, but it didn't seem to hinder my enjoyment of this installment.

This book is more a crime/mystery than a paranormal romance. Barrie is a very sympathetic Keeper and reporter. Mick is a man with about a million secrets and mysteriously seductive good looks. The mystery in this case was relatively easy to solve, but it still kept the pages turning.

The love story was hot and filled

Well, I think I liked this book best out of the series. The story was interesting and kept me guessing until the end. Every time I thought I knew who the killer was it turned out not to be them and then I'd try to guess a new person only to be wrong again. I actually never guessed who the killer was so that was a huge surprise when they were revealed. I also liked that for once people actually helped Barrie out and didn't talk down to her because she was a new Keeper, which in previous books tha ...more

got this from net galley- I am with the other people that says each book is a little diffrent from each other because they are written about by deffrint authors. I have read the other books and I really liked this book, Lots of twist and turns-but perfectly written and woven back into the other books
I love this series! This is the first time I've ever read any of Alexandra Sokoloff's books and I was a Fan just a few pages in. I cant wait to read her other books, right after I Finish Heather Grahams The Keeper of the Dawn.

A fun read by Alexandra Sokoloff, set amidst the movie industry in LA. I loved the characters, the story, the "other" worldliness of it. Very well done. Can't wait for the next book!
