The Keeper of Night | Kylie Lee Baker
17 posts | 6 read | 2 reading | 16 to read
Julie Kagawa meets Scythe in this captivating and evocative journey into Death's domain as one soul collector seeks her place in the underworld of 1890s Japan. Death is her destiny. Half British Reaper, half Japanese Shinigami, Ren Scarborough yearns for the acceptance she has never found among the Reapers who raised her. When the Shinigami powers she can no longer hide force her to flee for her life, Ren and her younger brother - the only being on earth to care for her - travel to Japan and the dark underworld of Yomi, where Ren hopes to claim her place among the Shinigami and finally belong. But the Goddess of Death is no more welcoming than the Reapers who raised her, and Ren finds herself set on an impossible task - find and kill three yokai demons, and maybe, just maybe, she can earn a place in Death's service. With only her brother and an untrustworthy new ally by her side, Ren will learn how far she'll go to win the acceptance she craves, and whether the cost of belonging is worth any sacrifice.

I did not particularly enjoy this book. The premise is interesting and should have been more compelling, but for me the book was too dry and boring from beginning to end. I finished it, but I‘m not too excited about another book in this duology. A lot of readers enjoyed it, but I found it a difficult read.

🎧📚 1st surprise of the year & it‘s book one. Read on 1/1/22.

Ren is half British Reaper & half Japanese Shinigami. She‘s been collecting souls for hundreds of years in London & she‘s running away with her younger brother to see if life is better for a halfling in Japan. It broke my heart a little. I liked the characters.

Generally not a book I‘d love but I did. #BOTM

This one started out slow but very quickly couldn‘t put it down! Quick read, gory and awesome folklore. My first time learning about Shinigami and all the different types of Yokai, now I‘m obsessed and want to learn more!!👹
Super happy the author is writing a sequel #BOTM

Not super thrilled with this month‘s selections (yet again), but decided on this one. #BOTM

Patchshank I chose the same one. I don't usually like YA, but it was definitely seemed to be the most interesting. 3mo

I loved TKON. I loved the concept of creatures of Death collecting souls for a living, and having different cultures while they're at it. I've always wanted to read a story like this. This book had an interesting main character whom I could immediately get behind even before the first chapter was over.

If you like Japanese mythology, and love yōkai anime/manga, I highly recommend that you pick up this book.

⭐: 4.5

I am posting one book per day from my to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new - don‘t judge me I have a lot of books.
Join the fun if you want. This is day 270.

Some books I'm pretty excited to read over the next few months. ✨😃

Heard some good things about The Atlas Six (first book in a series), and The Sword of Kaigen (a standalone). Vespertine, and The Keeper of Night will be released next month; The Excalibur Curse, in December.

Ohhh, this YA fantasy is deliciously dark, just as you might expect in a story about a young girl—part Reaper, part Shinigami—trying to earn her place in Death‘s ranks. At its core, it‘s a story about belonging, about finding your people when everyone around you says “You‘re not one of us,” & about the family you make. It‘s a story about just how far someone will go to feel a part of something & what they give up in the process. On sale 10/12/21.

I mean, no, no way did I pick my next book because the cover is so cool I couldn‘t look away when I saw it as I was going through my TBR stacks looking for my next read…I would nev—ok, yeah, I totally did. The good news is that three chapters in and so far, so good. It‘s very entertaining. Hopefully that continues.
