Death is her destiny.
Half British Reaper, half Japanese Shinigami, Ren Scarborough has been collecting souls in the London streets for centuries. Expected to obey the harsh hierarchy of the Reapers who despise her, Ren conceals her emotions and avoids her tormentors as best she can.
When her failure to control her Shinigami abilities drives Ren out of London, she flees to Japan to seek the acceptance she’s never gotten from her fellow Reapers. Accompanied by her younger brother, the only being on earth to care for her, Ren enters the Japanese underworld to serve the Goddess of Death… only to learn that here, too, she must prove herself worthy. Determined to earn respect, Ren accepts an impossible task—find and eliminate three dangerous Yokai demons—and learns how far she’ll go to claim her place at Death’s side.
The Keeper of Night was such magical book. I love the storyline of half Reapers/Shinigami. Also did love Japanese culture and anime. Also the cover is awesome looking. The main character on it looks bad ass. At times your not even sure if she is evil or good.
Ren has grown up being a reaper with her brother. She is an outcast bc she is half Shinigami. When she accidentally uses her Shinigami magic on the higher up Reapers, she is on the run. Now it’s time for her to find her mother and have a place she can call home.
This book was very action pack. I love learning the history of Reapers and Shinigami. It was a very detailed story. I like how in the book Ren might not be a hero, but someone looking for a place to belong. People will do anything to survive. So many crazy twists throughout the book. I’m so looking forward to book two, hopefully soon.
