Book two in the Alchemy series picks up with Jo and Cormac where book one left off. It transitions well with Jo playing poker at the Lecard Casino. Cormac has moved Jo’s trailer haven into his garage, which she isn’t very happy about. There are a few new characters added to the mix in Keepers and Killers that where interesting and integral to the plot. Remember that Jo’s a Keeper and only part Alchemist which gives her a slightly different skill set than the others. She’s good at opening wormholes for the Fae and Werewolves to move in and out of, to and from different universes.
While Jo and Buzz are on one of her shopping trips, she runs into Rick. A grown up version of the boy who grew up in the same foster home as she did. He was her childhood protector and he called her by her real name, Caitlin. The only thing is, he’s an Aid to the evil Senator Core. When they meet again to catch up, Senator Core sends her a gruesome message using Rick to deliver it for him.
Nobody knows who or what Senator Core is. They only know he isn’t human. After leaving Vitor’s house, Cormac and Jo stop at a club named The Cave where Fae and Werewolves go to hang out away from humans where they meet Mr. Burrom to try to learn more about the Senator. Jo has some silvery shimmering strands that appear a couple of times and seem to be helping her. I can’t wait to see what they turn out to be.
Jo seems to be a little more snarky this time and thinks that everyone looks at her as if she’s a high paid call girl. There’s definite angst between Cormac and Jo and they’re getting closer to something. This book had a bit of a lull in it, however the ending was pretty exciting with a bit of a cliffhanger. Overall I liked it. I like the series and look forward to seeing what happens next, especially with the Senator AND Jo and Cormac.
About the narrator: Again Laurel Schroeder delivers a powerful performance. She’s a wonderful voice actor and I really like her as Jo. She does a great job with the characters giving them all distinct voices. I look forward to book three in the series.
I received this audiobook foc inx for an unbiased review.

The adventure contines!
What made the experience of listening to Keepers & Killers the most enjoyable?
The narrator in this book is awesome! The story-telling & the emotions were so believable.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes, as the world started to fall apart I could actually imagine it from the story! Earthquakes, tornado's, a Tsunami & more & more creatures!
What about Laurel Schroeder’s performance did you like?
She is awesome in reading this book. The narrator breathes life into the story. Honestly, I don't think I would get as much out of the story had I read it myself!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It kept me at the edge of my seat. What a creative imagination the author has!!! I kept waiting for the happy ending.
Any additional comments?
I look forward to the next book. This is such a good series, I hope it never ends. This book has it all... action, adventure, suspense, thriller, paranormal even a touch of romance! I highly recommend the whole series!
