The Keeper's Vow

The Keeper's Vow review ✓ 3 They find themselves connected in ways than she can believe But is honesty worth than the peace blissful ignorance brings Especially if it sparks a chain of events that will end the lives of millions Can she live with the truth that begins with her dead mother and ends with The Keeper’s VowThe Keeper’s Vow is a YA Epic Urban Fantasy brimming with Magic and Moral Ambiguit. updated 9192016VERY SPOILERYGreat story awesome characters I loved how messed up the main characters were made them so much enjoyable to read even when I hated their attitudesUnlike most people who s opinion I ve read in other reviews I actually really like Katie Not because I think what she s doing is acceptable but because there s something awesome in someone who is so deprecatingly flawed and in being that becomes real Of course the only reason this works is because she eventually becomes someone who realizes and accepts those flaws and tries to do something about them Sure Katie is bull headed impulsive and selfish but that s what makes her character arc so much interesting in the end Who wants to read about an average tempered person who becomes betterI guess I have a soft spot for Katie because she reminds me of me at that age maybe I m still like that Suborn could come off as rude and uncaring sometimes and could become emotional if pushed I guess I just described most teenagers I also understand her refusal to allow herself to shine because I know what it was like to allow yourself to be mediocre just so no one ever expects anything from you Its the crumbling fear of disappointing someone you care about If people expect nothing then they can t be disappointed when you fail Eventually she comes to the realization that her attitude is mostly hurting her This is when Katie finally grows up she takes full responsibility for her life for her selfishness and for the pain she s caused Tristan and the other people in her lifeI also kind of like that Katie starts out by being mediocre at almost everything she does Schoolwork sports relationships and eventually her Guardian training Unlike other stories where the hero is naturally really good at the new weapons andor fighting or they get really good with just like two days of training it takes Katie months full of lots of pain and hard work for her to get better at her fighting and knife throwing It also takes her giving into her vampire side by finally drinking blood to reach her full potentialI like characters that have to work hard to become better versions of themselves Especially with things that have nothing to do with luck like good grades and athletic ability Sure you can naturally be good at soccer or basketball but if you don t train hard you ll get nowhereWhen it comes to Tristan what most reviewers ignore when they hate on Katie and slobber all over Tristan is that he can also be a bully He s frustratingly ambiguous and as impulsive as Katie Not to mention he can be uite cruel and mean when he wants toTristan blames Katie for having to take the blood oath but seems to forget that she too was an innocent child when it happened When he feels he s been hurt he hits bellow the belt Tristan aims to maim not just hurt Don t get me wrong I love Tristan He s one of the few people who know how to make Katie feel truly good about herself pushes her to reach her full potential which is something Katie has struggled with for most of her life He s a little snarky and rude in an endearing way but all in all he s a good guy that s as long as he doesn t feel he s being attacked Because Tristan is severely insecure about being unloved any remark or attack on the subject will have him flying off the hinges Sure he s gone through a lot and has real reasons to be angry and act out but his behavior is still unacceptable and self destructive eg staying drunk for days and getting beat into a pulp every night just so he wouldn t have to feel the pain of what Katie told him Knowing Tristan though he wouldn t have done it if he knew Katie felt all the pain no matter how much he said he hated her he wouldn t allow her to be in such painTristan has believed most of his life that he got the shit end of the stick while Katie got ice cream family and bubble gum dreams Yeah okay Tristan saw his family being murdered then he was taken away from his best and only friend and then he was confined to the big empty house to live on his own for years That would make anyone hateful and resentful but let s be honest Katie didn t have it all that better She was essentially forced to take the blood oath as a child as he was She was also pretty much given no other choice but to join the very dangerous Guardian program either that or choose the path that might have turned her into a slobbering moron who can barely remember her own name She was neglected by her father for years Left alone at home as a small child scared having to call a family friend to come and get her because dad never came home Being fed Doritos for dinner Being left with a family friend for weeks months sometimes because her dad went on drinking benders She suffered as much as Tristan did which is why I also understand yet don t approve of her attitude and behavior Not to mention the only reason she got free ice cream was because the ice cream man was her real father one who couldn t get over his own guilt and basically ruined both Katie s and Tristan s lives So they both got the raw end of the dealTalking about Larry the ice cream man Unlike most characters Lawrence aka Larry was unable to get over his own guilt and it cost him his best friend Tristan s father the love of his life Katie s mother and it almost also cause him his only child Katie all of whom he seemed loved dearly all for his feelings of guilt towards his brother Strangely I don t really think Lawrence really ever loved his brother if he had I really don t think the guilt would have destroyed him the way it did because at the end the guilt was all about Lawrence himself Being that self involved in your own pain you can t see who you re hurting around you Lawrence didn t seem to ever learn from his mistakes and so he paid with his life He died still unwilling to realize that he was only partially responsible for the way his brother turned out because at the end we are the masters of our own destinies Eshmael was always going to turn into a version of who he ended up being They were selfish They never looked passed themselves to truly see the other person for who they were They couldn t do what we did What we ve done Katie to Tristan talking about Lawrence and Eshmael Chapter 17What s interesting is that a lot of characters suffer from a lot of guilt brought on by their acts of selfishness Not to mention feeling responsible for others suffering Take Katie for example She felt guilty over the way she treated Tristan which was pretty horrible actually considering what she knew about him At first she took that guilt and drowned in it allowing herself to join in on Tristan s suffering which she believed she was fully responsible for Of course that didn t really help anything The only thing that this created was suffering for Katie and for those that had to watch her suffer like her dad and Lucinda Katie didn t understand that while drowning in her own guilt and shame she was actually not helping Tristan and to make things worse she was neglecting and hurting other people in her life in the process At the end Katie realizes all this and instead of just suffering and feeling guilty she does something about it She re connects with her friends she asks for forgiveness she started working hard at school and ultimately she goes to Tristan s rescue this time with help of others not just impulsively jumping into the fray as she d done in the pastSelfishness and guilt those are the two main catalysts that drive this storyI also love how other characters don t let the main characters get away with their shit and their abuse A story that is pretty bad at this is Twilight Now before you roll your eyes I don t actually hate Twilight I just have a lot of opinions about the way it reads Take Edward for example our hero and main love interest of the blandest teenage girl in literary existence Edward is creepy and obsessive and controlling and sneaks into Bella s room to watch her sleep at night even before they start dating not that them being a couple would have made that less creepy but I digress The way that s accepted with the story makes it seem like that s fine in the real world It s as if people should be okay with having some dude creeping in your room because he s handsome If he d been a nice but scrawny carrot haired pimply bucktoothed dude Bella would have called the cops on him I guess being white and handsome means you get to creep into girl s rooms and not go to jailI understand that its first person narrative and that Bella is an unreliable narrator like Humbert Humbert who actually is so well written that he manages to convince the reader that he s not actually just a pedophile Although in Humbert s case the other people in the story don t think its cool for him to form romances with pre teen girls But it seems to me like everyone in the world of Twilight thinks and accepts that Edward s behavior is an acceptable one No one calls Edward out on his creepiness No one that s not biased Jacob and Bella s dad Everyone else is just like oh he just loves you To me that means that in that world that is acceptable which means that Mayer thinks that s acceptable which makes it bad writingSimone did a much better job at having the characters think their behavior is completely warranted and acceptable and everyone else around them is like No no it s not who the hell do you think you are A good example is the uote bellow He hates that you re a selfish ass That you don t see how much you mean to him Anyone would hate that Allison to Katie Chapter 21I m also a sucker for funny characters Simon from the Mortal Instruments Harry s internal narrative in the Harry Potter books he isn t really all that funny in the movies And in the Keeper s Vow Katie She was really funny when she wasn t being a douche Here are some funny parts I highlighted 1 Something about collecting an original made her feel like a distinguished hoarder Katie2 Her bookbag was full to the brim with toiletries and knickknacks and her duffle bag full of resentment guilt and playdough Katie3 She can t ground me he said looking over his shoulder She can t even ground you You re homeless Tristan to KatieI also think its funny when Katie runs away from home and she packs like an eight year old She has like clothes that don t fit a kitten poster and playdough That made me laugh so hardNow of course the book had its issues Some of which I think I ll discuss below1 Sudden beginning I feel as if the beginning was kind of sudden We are introduced to Katie s world starting at school that s fine but then suddenly we are introduced to a stranger Tristan like maybe a page in I read the ebook so I m not sure the exact page To me honestly it would have made sense if she met him at her porch Introduce the main character a bit and her normal world and then introduce the catalyst for the changes the unknown that is here to change everything for her in this case Tristan To me it s as if Harry Potter starter with Hagrid giving Harry the cake at the lighthouse We d all be like who the hell is that guy Do these people live in a lighthouse Why does the kid s uncle have a rifle Or if Han Solo showed up within the first five minutes of Last Hope without us meeting Luke and his world first2 Spelling errors Now I m no grammar or spelling expert in fact I can be downright awful but there were some obvious flaws in the spelling that completely took me out of the narrative The word through was spelled as threw twice which threw me for a loop pun intended3 Brian shooting Katie Okay so Katie got shot twice once by the Vampire A graze I presume by its description and second by Brian s bad aim When Tristan asks Katie were she s been shot she answers rib cage he answers No I took care of that one or something along the lines My head just turned and I went whaaaaaaahhh How the hell did Tristan take care of her bullet wound As far as I know or maybe I missed it and I m an idiot Tristan does not have any healing abilities Lawrence had and possibly Katie if she s inherited it from Lawrence That bugged me to no end and I kept having to go back and read the same section to make sure I read it right Once again it pulled me out of the narrative Not to mention the fact that everyone but Tristan seemed cool with Brian shooting Katie It s like he s just a bad boy No he s an idiot boy4 Brian Okay let s talk about Brian I mean I don t really think he meant to shoot Katie but still there should be conseuences to almost killing your oldest friend If there s a second book I really hope Brian makes amends for what he s done That there are family and social conseuences to the way he treated people that obviously loved andor cared him If nothing happens it just seems like he got off scot free after breaking his best friend s heart being shitty with his parents becoming a big ass and a bully ignoring his schooling and training outing his cousin in such a petty way and in the process possibly destroying his parents careers but worst of all shooting his friend shooting anyone really should have conseuences I don t mean like he needs to go to jail because let s be fair they are supernatural warriors and stand by different laws Still it needs to be acknowledged as something stupid that he did5 Untouchable Also this untouchable thing or whatever it s called the whole thing with the core that Katie spent so much time training and worrying herself sick over she never used it Tristan kind of used it for like a second but it didn t help with anything but burning some guy a little I think he used it at the club when he was fighting those dudes but really it was just like ow you re an untouchable and then they tazed him I think before taking him and Katie up to see Larry so Simone might as well have left it out unless it s going to become some great big thing in book two which still would have made no sense since I watched a video where she says she had no intentions of writing a seuel when she finished this book6 Mortal Instruments Okay let s be honest here The Keeper s Vow is a great book but can we talk about the elephant in the room and admit its a lot like the Mortal Instruments At least the rules and backstoriesA The Guardians are essentially Shadowhunters They are born from bloodlines of Guardians that go back centuries There are older respectable Guardian families Shadowhunters follow those same rulesB Katie was kept from her truth and her training because of her father an ex guardian who left the guardian society after a great tragedy Clary is kept from Shadowhunter world and her training by her mother an ex shadowhunter who left the shadowhunter world after a great tragedyC Both Clary and Katie are daughters of prominent figures andor bloodlines in their world and so are Jace and TristanD Both Jace and Tristan start out being douche bags then turn into lovable douchebags then just lovableE Jace and Clary are basically being hunted by Valentine Clary s father who didn t learn about her until the last minute and decided to include her in his plans Tristan and Katie are being hunted by Katie s uncle Eshmael who doesn t learn about Katie until the last minute and decides to use her for his plansF Clary has a father figure Luke that is not related to her but has been there her whole life Katie has a mother figure Lucinda that is not related to her but has been there her whole lifeG Both Clary and Katie have funny best friends Simon and Allison one thing I must say Katie is a lot funnier and a lot complex internally than ClaryAll in all however I really really enjoyed this book and read it in one sitting The characters were well thought out and three dimensional They were funny and uirky The story was interesting and at times overwhelmingly heartbreaking The imagery is amazing The way Simone describes the feelings smells and looks of things made me feel as the character did at that moment Like at the beginning when Katie is covered in Tristan s blood Her emotional reaction was very realistic considering the situation She freaked the shit out which is what would have happened to someone who has never before been covered in someone else s bloodThe book was not perfect but its very much worth the read and worth waiting for a seuel if the author writes one which is not necessary for the enjoyment of this one but wouldn t hurt eitherI give this 4 out of 5 because blood lickers Tuf Voyaging read even when I hated their attitudesUnlike most people who s opinion I ve A field guide to the birds of Galapagos A Taplinger worldwide field guide read in other The Ghost of Buxton Manor reviews I actually Derailed really like Katie Not because I think what she s doing is acceptable but because there s something awesome in someone who is so deprecatingly flawed and in being that becomes Dirty Harry #9 The Killing Connection real Of course the only Dirty Harry #5 Family Skeletons reason this works is because she eventually becomes someone who Willow De Beers #1 realizes and accepts those flaws and tries to do something about them Sure Katie is bull headed impulsive and selfish but that s what makes her character arc so much interesting in the end Who wants to All That Glitters Landry #3 read about an average tempered person who becomes betterI guess I have a soft spot for Katie because she Encyclopedia of World History Primary Documents Master Index Volume 7 reminds me of me at that age maybe I m still like that Suborn could come off as abala Trilogy rude and uncaring sometimes and could become emotional if pushed I guess I just described most teenagers I also understand her A View from the Eagle’s Nest refusal to allow herself to shine because I know what it was like to allow yourself to be mediocre just so no one ever expects anything from you Its the crumbling fear of disappointing someone you care about If people expect nothing then they can t be disappointed when you fail Eventually she comes to the Two for the Show realization that her attitude is mostly hurting her This is when Katie finally grows up she takes full The Emerald Peacock responsibility for her life for her selfishness and for the pain she s caused Tristan and the other people in her lifeI also kind of like that Katie starts out by being

Not Related really good at the new weapons andor fighting or they get Building Dynamic Web Sites with Macromedia Studio MX 2004 VOICES really good with just like two days of training it takes Katie months full of lots of pain and hard work for her to get better at her fighting and knife throwing It also takes her giving into her vampire side by finally drinking blood to Where Does the Brown Bear Go? reach her full potentialI like characters that have to work hard to become better versions of themselves Especially with things that have nothing to do with luck like good grades and athletic

tragedy Clary is kept from Shadowhunter world and her training by her mother an ex shadowhunter who left the shadowhunter world after a great tragedyC Both Clary and Katie are daughters of prominent figures andor bloodlines in their world and so are Jace and TristanD Both Jace and Tristan start out being douche bags then turn into lovable douchebags then just lovableE Jace and Clary are basically being hunted by Valentine Clary s father who didn t learn about her until the last minute and decided to include her in his plans Tristan and Katie are being hunted by Katie s uncle Eshmael who doesn t learn about Katie until the last minute and decides to use her for his plansF Clary has a father figure Luke that is not King's Wrath Sydney Storm MC #5 related to her but has been there her whole life Katie has a mother figure Lucinda that is not The Leangains Method: The Art of Getting Ripped. Researched, Practiced, Perfected. (English Edition) related to her but has been there her whole lifeG Both Clary and Katie have funny best friends Simon and Allison one thing I must say Katie is a lot funnier and a lot complex internally than ClaryAll in all however I Balmoral Bad Reputation #2 really The Enforcer's Revenge really enjoyed this book and The World Series read it in one sitting The characters were well thought out and three dimensional They were funny and uirky The story was interesting and at times overwhelmingly heartbreaking The imagery is amazing The way Simone describes the feelings smells and looks of things made me feel as the character did at that moment Like at the beginning when Katie is covered in Tristan s blood Her emotional In Still Darkness Immortal Guardians #35 realistic considering the situation She freaked the shit out which is what would have happened to someone who has never before been covered in someone else s bloodThe book was not perfect but its very much worth the Masuerade read and worth waiting for a seuel if the author writes one which is not necessary for the enjoyment of this one but wouldn t hurt eitherI give this 4 out of 5 because blood lickers
