Review: His Witch to Keep (Keepers of the Veil, #2) by Zoe Forward

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Publication Date: November 09 2015


A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint...

Wanting her was one thing. Keeping her was another...

Serenity Danssaert was already in way over her head. Not even her MI6 training or her powers as one of the seven Pleiades witches is going to save her sister. Then Alexi Jovec shows up. A secret operative working for unknown forces, he's impossibly sexy and dangerous...and the guy who bailed on Serenity after a red-hot, racy night.

So bonding to him as her destined—the One—is so very wrong.

While Alexi’s need to own Serenity—body, soul, and beyond—is nearly unbearable, it's also forbidden. He's the last man who could ever be her destined. Besides, Hades's right-hand man cannot bond with a chosen Pleiades witch. He may be the one man who can protect her, but she can never be his to keep. 


If you are reading this review I am going to assume that you have read the first book and I will write about things that happened in book one (though not much since this story can be read as stand alone).

We met Alexi and Serenity in the previous book called Protecting His Witch. Alexi is the man who saved the Pleiades close to the end of book #1 and is known that he has some kind of super power and a past with Serenity. Now we know that he works for Hades and that's the reason they can't be together. The thing is that the chemistry is very strong and Serenity needs protection in her mission of saving her sister.

I wanted to see a little more of Kat and Matt in this book. I ended Protecting his witch with the hope that I would see them appear frequently considering that Kat is a plaid like Serenity and Matt is the new chief for the lack of a better word. Maybe if a future book is Eli's I will see them, but who knows. I want Eli to get a book, but I am guessing that Nikolai is next. You have to keep the best for last, right? The poor guy is alone and he went through a lot in this book and I am rooting for his happy ending.

I liked the identity of the person who is threatening Liz (Serenity's sister). It was very unexpected and it gave a lot of points to the book.

The pace is good and fast without being abrupt, there is some angst and a lot of the I-want-you-but-I-can't-have-you thing. It was a good book to read when you are trying to relax or want something a little angst without the over the top drama. There is a kiss in the end, which normally would have made me go crazy, but I understood it and I don't think that it reflected negatively on my view of this book.
