See my review for The Light of Asteria (Kailmeyra #1) HERE




Life for Nora couldn't be better; she has married the man of her dreams and loves living in the pristine land of Kailmeyra.

That is, until the darkness threatens her perfect world.

Now war is upon the land. She and Gavin must strengthen their clan and prepare to fight. But the enemy has an ally—one that not only wields power, but holds knowledge of the ancients' secrets. Secrets that could destroy creation itself.

As the darkness grows, doubt seeps in ... protectiveness hinders progress ... and the unthinkable comes to pass.

Bewildered and alone, Nora shoulders the responsibility of leading an entire race to war. As she struggles with decisions that seem impossible to make, she is haunted by one choice. 


I locked my knees trying to ignore the way he turned my bones to mush. “I love you.” I whispered, not knowing what else to say.

After finishing The Light of Asteria, I knew I had to get my hands on book two as soon as possible. I must say picking up The Secret of the Keepers I was a little nervous, The Light of Asteria was breathtaking! I was worried wondering how author Elizabeth was going to pull off book two being just as amazing…but of course being Elizabeth Isaacs she did just that! The Secret of the Keepers was AMAZING! After reading two of Elizabeth’s novels I can now easily say I will be a forever fan and read ANYTHING she writes in the future. Her knack of writing so beautifully and writing such amazing adventures is purely astonishing.

Book two of the Kailmeyra series starts out at Nora and Gavin’s honeymoon, the two couldn’t be happier after going through so much in book one The Light of Asteria they can now finally spend their lives together as one. Nora is still adjusting to her powers, but she grows stronger every day, everything seems to be going perfect.. But then a war comes to Kailmeyra, Gavin and Nora must prepare their men to fight..

What an astounding remarkable AMAZING sequel this turned out to be! Like I said before I was really nervous picking up The Secret of the Keepers, but now that I have finished it…I think I may have even liked it MORE than book one! It was at least a tie, but I must say I loved a lot of things about this new addition to the Kailmeyra series..

First off I love Gavin and Nora’s relationship in book two, everything went up a notch! They were more romantic, they were more physical, they were more understanding, and literally just everything went up a notch!! I already knew they loved each other in book one, but book two shows us even more in depth how much they care for one another.

After the romance, I must say my favorite was some of the new characters added in, such as Rune. I LOVED Rune! I believe he was a great addition to the story. And on top of having new amazing characters, there was also a lot of development in our existing characters, Gavin I believe grew the most. I felt in The Light of Asteria Gavin was almost harsh at times, but in The Secret of the Keepers he was completely different. I felt you could really tell Nora had rubbed off a lot on him, he seemed much more kind hearted.

The last thing I loved about The Secret of the Keepers was all of the new places in the land of Kailmeyra that we got to see and explore, I absolutely love Elizabeth’s writing especially when she is describing a place. She details everything so beautifully, if I could live in one authors words, it would be Elizabeth’s.

Overall the Kailmeyra series has one of the most magical romances I have ever read, it has amazing characters, beautiful scenery, and is just overall an astounding series. It is hands down a series that everyone should enjoy!




Up for grabs is one ebook copy of The Secret of the Keepers!
