Another fun paranormal romance that draws on lesser known mythology. If you are after something different I recommend it :)

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.

Admittedly, not what I expected - which is neither good nor bad, per se.

Dora is a half-giantess, who lives with her human father and longs to find love and understanding. She finds both in the form of a magician prisoner she's tasked to guard, Evander "Bear" Gordon. When extremists who despise magical beings - and who may have been responsible for her mother's death, as well - try to kill Bear and her on a prison transfer, Dora helps the man escape. Together, they discover what has been denied

This is a different kind of read for me in that it didn't include the usual group of paranormal beings. I'm also not used to giants playing an intelligent character. They are normally stereotyped as being a little slow or even dumb. So it was fun to read about Dora, a half-giant because she was very real. She had all kinds of emotions and ideas. She was also pretty tough and held her own in every fight she had. She was the one who rode in and saved the day. (I always like when the female charact ...more

The Magician's Keeper takes place in a world where humans and magical beings find themselves at odds and there are extremists on both sides. I liked our heroine, half giant, Eudora Splat although I found it odd that she could be so strong sometimes and so wishy washy at others. The magician Evander “Bear” Gordon was okay but could really have used a better sense of humor. All in all I enjoyed the book but must admit it took a bit to finish. Fans of UF romance might want to give it a try.

This was a different read it was interesting, it just wasn't exciting kind of boring unfortunately. Dora is part giant strong but very naive she falls for Bear who has some magical ability. She finds her place with him after being ostracized by humans. I was expecting more from Bear's character he was in prison I was expecting him to be Alpha and a bad ass, I was wrong. His magic served no purpose he didn't even heal her when she was injured. She was the bad ass sort of, rescuing him always. I w ...more

I received a free copy via Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.
This was a nice easy read.
The let down being the story line was very obvious.
Nothing to dislike though.

I wanted to like The Magician's Keeper more than I did in the end.

It started out well. The beginning establishes just how lonely Dora is and gives a really clear picture of the prejudice she faces as a half-giant. She chooses to remain isolated at work, rather than face the microaggressions (and sometimes just aggressions) of her colleagues. This microcosm also shows what things are like in this alternate Australia.

I also enjoyed the setting. The action takes place in and around Perth. When we s
