I voluntarily reviewed an early copy of this book :) I feel like before I can truly get into all my thoughts and feelings about this amazing book, and make no mistakes, I loved it to pieces :) but before all that I need to give you a bit of an explanation, because this is book #2 in a series that is actually a spin-off of a different series and you need to be warned about possible spoilers :) so here goes ;)

The original series is called The chosen and consists of four books (Mother of shadows, R

Also Kieran, two seconds later: I will create problems on purpose.

I'M SO MAD AT HIM. KIERAN YOU IDIOT, THAT'S NOT HOW YOU WIN SOMEONE'S HEART! Although at this point it's definitely Lucian's, your train has passed my friend.

You'd think he was locked up in the dungeon for years with the way he's acting. Or that his brain got scrambled while travelling through the that I think about it...

Honestly, after reading other books by my friend Meg, I don’t know how I wasn’t prepared to be fully obsessed with this series like her others. She is an incredible writer. Her world building, sexual tension, and character development are phenomenal.

Holy biscuits and gravy! I just can’t. No... No... No! I finally get some steamy scenes I’ve been waiting for and then you freaking do this! You monster! I’m so baffled, upset and thrilled. I can’t wait for the next book and to see how this grows and develops! Kieran is a mega jerk that deserves death by Effie as she is now at the end of the book. I still have some theories from the first book that are still not answered... cough,cough. The suspense is continuing to build and I am about to combu ...more

This book was absolutely fantastic! I've never felt such disdain for a character as I do for Kiernan. Meg really knows how to bring her characters to life and get the reader involved. The love and protection that Lucian has for Effie is amazing. And of course there is one hell of a cliffhanger. I cant wait for the next book!

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Holy Mother! I think I died from all of the awesomeness that is this book! I've been a die hard fan of the Chosen series since day one and with every book I fall more and more in love with the story! If you're looking for swoon-worthy warriors, and fiery women, a fantasy world full of intrigue and duplicity, and edge of your seat suspense then THIS is the series for you! This book absolutely deserves 10 stars! ...more

What just happened? How can you end a book with that massive of a cliffhanger? This story is unreal. So good.

The Keepers Retribution by Meg Anne
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 Stars!!!

Wow! Just wow! I don’t even know where to start…Effie & Lucian’s relationship progresses and gets steamier. Effie gets stronger, but the girl can’t catch a break! But something is happening to Effie and no one knows until it’s too late!

Kieran’s jealousy causes him to make terrible choices, costing the lives of keepers he basically lays everything on a silver platter for the Shadows to come and wreak Havoc at the Citadel. He was a lover s

Well holy hell I did not see that ending coming. While I had wondered about the bite from the minute that it happened I truly didn't make the connection. This book is steamy and full of action. It is literally non-stop from one horrific situation to the next and having the circle back and helping in the beginning was awesome. I just hope that Helena and Von can eventually make an appearance and help with correcting this plague to the land. ...more

This second installment in the series is even better than the first. I’m excited and sad where things have gone but such is book life. The stakes are even higher in book two and the action is even better as well. The devastation and emotional toll is a heavy burden but Effie is strong. I don’t want to give it away but.... you learn a LOT in this book! Super excited to read book three!

Jealousy and consequences

The relationships between Effie and her friends changes as markers come to pass. The corruption continues to spread and the stakes are higher. The losses start to mount.

The hits keep coming

And you don't even see them. Blind to the truth. Pain flay's you alive.
I knew this was a trilogy with this being the second book, but boy what a cliffhanger!
Thank goodness the next one is already out or I might be as mad as Effie!

I highly suggest reading The Keeper's Legacy (The Keepers Book 1) before starting this book, as the story picks up from where it left off and also for better knowledge of all the characters (good and evil).

Ms. Anne has done it once again! She just continues to blow my mind with her words and characters. Once I started this book, I could not put it down. Was an awesome read start off the new year.

Effie, Reyna, Lucian, Ronan and yes, even Kieran, are in the fight of their lives. The Shadows are ga

I was excited to carry on reading this series by Meg Anne because I have enjoyed the first two books and I know that Meg is the queen at when it comes to throwing massive surprises at you. After a slow start in the first chapter (it took me a little while to get used and back into the story as it had been a while since I had read this series), I finally got caught back up and was fully engaged with the book. You may remember Kieran and how at first he seemed like an okay guy, I even actually fel ...more

Just didn’t grab me

I really liked the first book, but this book was incredibly boring to me. And I don’t know why. I barely made it to 40% before I gave up and moved on. I hope I’ll come back in the future, but it just didn’t so it for me right now

Carla's Five Star Review

The Keeper's Retribution is book two in the Keeper's series, and, in order to avoid confusion, you must read book one which is The Keeper's Legacy.

Holy mother of all Cliffhangers! I need November to hurry up and arrive because I am dying to discover what will happen next. I fell in love with Effie in Meg Anne's Chosen series, and the more I read about her, the more I love her. She is tough as nails and has the tenacity of a pit bull. I love watching her discover her newfo

You do need to read The Keeper's Legacy before reading this book.

It was great to see Effie grow and learn to accept and use her visions. She also is a bad @$$ women. She fights right along with the guys. In this book she finally comes to terms with her feeling for one man (and she choose the right one) and starts to accept his feelings for her.

This read was full of angst and action. Ms. Anne brings all of the character to life and makes you feel their emotions. This read took a twist that I di

I don't know where to start or what to say. This time this author has gone to freaking far. I can't believe what she has done and that she as the absolute freaking nerve to make us wait again. This is the reason I read her though so I guess I should stop complaining. Trust me you will feel the same way when you find out what she's done. She has twisted this love into something so twisted and unimaginable that you will feel the same way I do, freaking floored. The wind has been knocked out of me ...more

The Keepers Retribution is the 2nd part of a series of books. If you have not read the first part (like me) then it is difficult to get into the story. There are references to what happened in the first part, but this is too superficial to get a good picture of the story (for me). I found it difficult to get into the book. Only halfway through the story it came to life for me and then from that moment on I thought it was an exciting story.
I think the Guardian has a strong personality that shows

This series just gets better and better! This book has so much action and suspense. Effie has definitely become a little warrior. He relationship with Lucian is evolving and it's fun to read about. Kieran is still on my love to hate list and I think it may lean more towards hate then love at this point. (no spoilers here lol) This book brings more of the horrors of the "Shadow-Touched" out into the open of what that actually means for people and things. You root for the hero's and boo the villai ...more

This book is sooo addictive it should come with a warning label!
What a book! 6 out of 5 stars. The beautiful descriptions within the book takes you on an imaginative journey, a holiday into the unknown. Your imagination is set free in this fantastical book.This is the 2nd book in the series and Effie continues on a journey as a Keeper. It’s an adventure that not only has action but also so heart-warming. Effie has such a big heart that you as the reader just want to reach out and become besties

I already loved Effie from the Chose series but her character development through the Keepers series is absolutely fantastic!! Lucian the lovable cranky pants gets even better in this book if that is possible! Kieran the vengeful sorta villain maybe learns a lesson. But I really have to say holy Smoke, did you silently weave your way into my heart!! And of course in true Meg Anne fashion, you get to the end and fall right off the cliff. Keepers Retribution will leave you drooling and impatiently ...more

Learning, training, Seeing, surviving. It seems that the Chosen,s Prophecy is not yet done; Effie's visions reveal more danger for the Chosen and ALL of the Lost Tribes. Effie is drawn to her Guardian, Lucian, and Keiran tries to convince Effie that she belongs with him. Traveling the realms of Eatos, the Keeper's discover the ruin occurring in the lands of the Foresaken. In typical Meg Anne fashion, there is a MOTHER of a cliffhanger but it will leave you begging for Book Three........

I'm really enjoying this series so far! You do need to read The Keeper's Legacy before reading this book, and I recommend reading the prequel novella too. Such an interesting plot-line in these books! I know I've said this in my review for the first book but Meg Anne has such an amazing imagination to come up with the stuff in these books. I don't want to give anything away in this book or series so that's why I'm not saying much, but just now that this is a fantastic read! However, be prepared ...more

Love the Keepers!

Oh I am loving Lucian!! I thought I liked him before. I love him now. I really enjoyed Effie's growth as a Keeper and as a character. I really loved getting to revisit some of my favorite characters from the Chosen series. The pace was great. Intrigue, secrets, lust, love, betrayal. It's all awesome. And then the bad stuff.... that flipping CLIFFHANGER!!! I really should have expected it from Meg Anne. I dont know why I was surprised. And now I'm chomping at the bit for the last

So good!

I honestly was not expecting the turn of events that happened in regards to Kierans character. But as far as the antagonist goes, he is a very dynamic character.

I also LOVE Effie and Lucian they are such strong characters. The only thing I wish I would've seen in this series is the mate bond where they can communicate in ways that Helena could. Alas, with Smoke and Mirrors I can see how that could be too many voices in your head.

Great second book the series. Is it November yet?

Once again Meg Anne has continued a captivating series on with action, steam, emotion, suspense and a killer of a cliffhanger as an ending!! Meg really know how to drag the reader into get story and make you completely invested in the read while rooting for the good guys and hoping Kieran gets what he deserves! There is so much to take in during this book and I am so excited to see what happens next! Cannot wait for more Effie and Lucian...bring on book three!
