Brenna Kennedy is the youngest in her family and as such she is the Warden to the Sorhineth. For her whole life she has been told stories of the Keepers of the Earth, a group of Terrans, beings who keep the world in balance. She has thought that the stories were just fantasy until she arrives home one day to find her house searched and destroyed and she knows what the intruder was looking for, the Sorhineth. While still in shock from the discovery that Terrans are real and the discovery that the Destroyers have located her, a Terran shows up saying he wants the Sorhineth.
Something has happened to the Terrans, they have become complacent and jaded until they no longer care to keep the world in balance, until finally one of their own decides that enough is enough and he sets out to find the Sorhineth. Donovan Callahan is a special Terran, part Earth Keeper and part Protector. He has seen horrible things happen in his decades of life and he knows the Terrans have to start taking care of the earth again or more disasters will follow. Brenna and Donovan must now team up and find the secrets in the Sorhineth. Enemies known as destroyers are out to get the Sorhineth and to kill both Brenna and Donovan. As they elude enemies they come to realize that they are mated.
The author did a very good job writing a detailed world and the steamy scenes. Once I started this book it was hard to put down. I enjoyed this book and would like to see more from this author. There are three other books in the Terran Realm series, they are: Measure of a Man by Bonnie Dee; Troubled Waters by Tiffany Aaron; and, Fruits of Betrayal by Bonnie Dee.
Brenna Kennedy has spent most of her life guarding a book of lore she's pretty sure is a family joke, for a species she's been raised to loathe. Corporate bodyguard Donovan Callahan has seen it all-and done it twice. He's tired, jaded and really doesn't give a damn. It takes four horrific events-Hurricane Hugo, Tiananmen Square, the Exxon Valdez and the Loma Prieta earthquake-to make Donovan realize someone needs to do something, and that someone just might be him. As a Terran-a preternatural being entrusted with keeping the world in balance-it's up to him to try and save the world-or watch it all come tumbling down. When he teams up with Brenna, the earth moves-and it ain't an earthquake! San Francisco will never be the same-and neither will Donovan and Brenna.
In 1989, America has been taken over by materialistic yuppies, the world stands on the brink of ecological disaster . and no one cares. Not even the Keepers of the Environment (KOTE), a clandestine sect of Terrans headquartered in San Francisco. For centuries they worked in concert with Mother Earth, sparing humankind from unthinkable disaster. But now the Terrans have become complacent, perfectly happy to revel in the hedonistic ways of 1980s San Francisco. In doing so, they've allowed their power-and their oneness with the Goddess-to deteriorate to the verge of the point of no return.
