A couple of weeks ago I participated in the cover reveal for Sienna, and when I saw that it was a Kindle freebie I knew I had to get it since I've had it on my to-read list since June. I was a little nervous like I always am when it comes to reading a novella but I got lucky and picked another winner folks.

Sienna was a quick, action packed adrenaline ride full of murder, deception with a hint of romance. Usually novellas are very one dimensional for me but this one wasn't at all. I thought Sienn

After falling in love with Rae Rivers, thanks to NetGalley and Harper Impulse for giving me a copy of The Keepers: Declan, I was very excited to begin the rest of the series. Sometimes starting a book from the middle of the series can lead to several questions and confusion, although Rivers comes across in her books with that being a case of wondering if the topic happened “off-screen” or in another book. Luckily, she articulates her stories in a way that without being redundant, you always know ...more

Sienna is a powerful witch. Her grandmother has passed on her powers to her, but they are too much for Sienna to handle. They overwhelm her and are a big responsibility. The Beckham witches have to make sure the balance between good and evil is right and they are making sure nobody knows they're witches. Unfortunately two evil warlock brothers don't mind if they are exposed. They commit the most horrible crimes and they are after Sienna. She has to beat them to restore the balance. Fortunately s ...more

Rae has done it again for me with this wonderful novella and prequel to The Keepers: Archer. I have read The Keepers: Archer first so my experience of this novella may be different to someone who reads Sienna first. I promise I won't give anything away.

I was so so so excited to hear that Rae was releasing a prequel to her Keepers series. I read The Keepers: Archer back in June and have been wanting desperately to immerse myself in that world again, and this novella did not disappoint. I already

I read the majority of this free novella in one evening and finished it the next day. I found myself thrown straight into the action with such vivid scene description, it was almost as if I was there and watching the story unfold like a film.

If you like supernatural romances then this is a must read. It’s a simply spectacular short story that more than sets the scene for the entire Keepers series in a way that will have you downloading the next installment before you’ve even turned the last page.

Rae Rivers introduces the reader to the main players, including Sienna and . . . wait for it . . . Archer. If ever there were a man you’d want protecting you, it’s Archer – and if you like alpha male type characters, you’ll want to eat him w

Having got the first in The Keepers series on my iPad (not read it yet!) I was excited to see a free prequel which I devoured in a couple of sittings. I am not a paranormal fan but when it is woven so well into a contemporary setting it gets my interest! Rae Rivers manages this brilliantly and you are introduced to Beckham witch, Sienna, her Keepers and one of the dark forces out to get her...Mason.
A nail-biting, intense ride that sets up the series perfectly! I can't wait to read more!

Lucky me! This is a free read that caught my attention and now I want more. So...yes...I immediately went on amazon and purchased The Keepers: Archer. The characters are captivating with a magically descriptive storyline. I am thrilled that this free read was available to draw me into another fantastic series with an author who has a way of pulling you in and offering up characters that can be described as addictive.

This prequel to the "Keepers" trilogy is an introduction to the world of witches where secrecy is required. Having the general public know of their existence could lead to disaster, therefore the balance between good and evil has to be maintained.

Sienna struggles with her new powers, but when her life and those of her Keepers are threatened, she loses control. Heartache follows. She is also faced with the forbidden love with one of her Keepers.

This introduction gives a taste of all the magic to

If you believe in magic, then The Keepers is a great book to read. The blurb had me intrigued and once I started I couldn't put it down. The Keepers: Sienna is the prequel to the Keepers Series by Rae Rivers and this one is a real gem of a novella. The characters are very lovable, it's entertaining and keeps you on your toes right until the very end. This novella draws you in to introduce you to the characters and give you a teaser into what hopefully comes next in the series, The Keepers: Arche ...more

This the free prequel to The Keepers : Archer read from author Rae Rivers.

It takes you into a deeper look at the lives of the characters from the first book Archer and Sienna. Not wanting to give anything away here as you simply need to read it for yourself , I will be summing this up in a short and sweet version.

We have the witch Sienna and one of her keepers Archer, the town carnival that brings it all into alignment, and leaves in it's wake the opening to a complete new world of sorcery, mur

This review was originally posted on Star Crossed Reviews Rae contacted me as part of Harper Impulse Fortnight to see if I would be interested in reviewing The Keepers: Declan, so I looked up the book and while I was dying to read it, I had a little issue. Declan was not the first book in the series and I am a bit of a stickler for reading books in the order they should be in. So I logged on to Amazon to find that Sienna (book 0.5) was free. I instantly downloaded it. I was almost halfway throug ...more

The Keepers: Sienna is a prequel novella for Rae Rivers' The Keepers series. It's just something to whet your appetite for the main story; it doesn't contain much backstory. We're plunged into the action and shown somethign important in the lives of Sienna and her Keepers.

Sienna Beckham is a young witch. She has just received from her grandmother Rose the power to evoke all the four elements. Sienna has four keepers: Archer, Sarah, Declan, and Ethan.

The Keepers: Sienna is a prequel to the trilogy. As a standalone read it is an interesting tale full of sensual tension, paranormal drama and vivid characters.
The paranormal elements of this novella are well thought out and the antagonist dark and evil. The atmosphere created by the author makes reading this story a sensual experience.

This is a really good book. It wasn't what I expected at first then it turned out to really good. The book was about this witch and her keepers who fight off mason and all his evil tricks. Mason is this bad guy who likes to terrorize the people but most of all he likes to scare Sienna and make Archer mad. Sienna got more powers from her grandmother Rose. Sienna is still learning how to use them. Archer one of her keepers that she was very close to helped her learn her new powers. Once carnival c ...more

Sienna is the prequel to The Keepers series by Rae Rivers. It is meant to draw readers in and introduce them to the characters.

Rae Rivers did a decent job introducing the characters but there really wasn’t a lot of background to gather from this book that the reader couldn’t get from reading the first book in the series. I expected to learn more about the characters and what made them who they are before I st

An interesting prequel that tease you to know more.

Witchcraft, villains, death and a forbidden love. A good mix that makes this preamble a good introduction to discover the characters before starting the volume one of this series.

In this short introduction, the characters retain much of mystery and many questions remain unanswered. The role of this text is to make you want to continue reading and in that sense, it's well done by the author.

There is also some confusion in the mind of the heroin,

Other books that I have read that only span a short period of time seem as if the characters and the story weren't developed well; however, this was not the case in this book. Rae Rivers's writing completely amazed me in this book due to the fact that, as mentioned before, the story takes place in about a day; yet, she was able to put so much emotion, context, and action that I was completely drawn into the lives of the charact

The world of a Beckham witch and her Keepers was interesting. I'd like to have more back story about each character than jumping into a story immediately. I'm odd that way, I guess. Sienna has not mastered her new powers of all 5 elements. Archer, is one of her Keepers. He's mysterious, gorgeous, fit, etc. Mason and Warrick are the villians in this story. Mason is in love with Sienna, but again, why, what, when, where, is important to character development. I'm not sure if I'll continue reading ...more
