    1. When REUTS sent me an ARC copy of this book, I wasn t really sure what to expect I ll be honest I wasn t expecting this.When I first started reading THE KEEPERS, I was immediately drawn into the rich details of the story A few hours later, when I finally resurfaced, I was disappointed that it ended Not only did Anoosha create a world that I felt like I was a part of, but she also was able to fill this world with characters that felt real.Of course, it was her writing that drew me in first While [...]

    2. Recieved an ecopy in exchange for an honest reviewIsra and her family live into the hard world of Pakistan, where poverty rules and children disappear all the time After a series of events Isra s hands become full with an ancient amulet, her friends problems as also the enigmatic presence of a boy.Anoosha manages to combine the struggles of the sister and their friends with the supernatural and mythological world The balance between good and evil is also the central point of the story and even t [...]

    3. Anoosha got in touch with us and asked if we would like an e copy of her book, The Keepers She described it as a YA novel that blends the biblical tale of Adam and Eve with the contemporary life of a child living in the slums in Islamabad, Pakistan and it really intrigued me especially as it was an opportunity for me to read a diverse YA novel.Most of us know the basic lore of the story Adam and Eve, angels etc but Anoosha takes it so much further and it was great she has really woven the story [...]

    4. Possible spoilers Read with caution I received an eARC of The Keepers from REUTS Publications, in exchange for an honest review The setting of Islamabad, Pakistan was definitely a change for me I liked being able to get a glimpse at the poverty stricken city that Isra and her family lived in That s all it was to me though, just a glimpse I would have liked to see of this come into play As magnificent as Zarcane was, of Pakistan would have pushed this book to at least a 4 star book for me Despi [...]

    5. Everything about this book s premise intrigued me Set in Islamabad, with a Pakistani girl taking on threats from a world from Biblical mythology The blurb hints only vague if at all of potential romance The two Keepers spoilers , a boy and a girl, end up as best friends, and in a genre inundated with romance, I absolutely love that Otherwise, There were a lot of characters and plot elements that did a great job of adding interest throughout the book too, like the Snatchers, and Calliel, whose na [...]

    6. I think the story started off good, with a pivotal event that left you intrigued One that would affect the main character, Isra, in a huge way During the start, there was a moment of flashbacks which I thought was a little confusing I couldn t help but feel like that part was a little awkward than I would have liked but it quickly smoothed out in the end since there were no flashbacks after that The pacing is decent and leaves you with cliffhangers at the end of most of the chapters, especiall [...]
