Blog Tour / The Keeper: Revenge by OL Ramos

Title: The Keeper: Revenge
Series: The Keeper Series
Genre: NA Mystery/Thriller (no sex or cursing)
Author: OL Ramos
Tour Organizer: B3 Tours


Elizabeth is a brilliant loner with a troubling secret she doesn't even know. As if the trauma of her mother being abducted before her eyes as a young girl wasn't enough, the small town she lives in thinks she’s crazy. That all changed when she met Michael, a mysterious and handsome man who identified with her like no one else before. Michael’s long time friend Vincent visits and drops the bombshell of a lifetime on Elizabeth and her world becomes completely unraveled. 

Vincent’s information has revealed the world for what it is; a place where the impossible is real, and myths and legends walk slyly in shadow. A world that Elizabeth will learn she too is a member. Now, the three are caught up in a thousand year long conspiracy they never could have imagined. The three must rely on one another and the secret connection they all share if they have a chance to survive.


“So what am I, then?” I ask after gathering enough courage. 

“You’re a keeper,” Vincent says as he avoids my stare, instead choosing to look straight ahead. “A keeper, as in keeper of the blood. You are the rarest super there is, custos sanguinis. Your kind comes around once every few generations, if at all. And when your sort does show up, all hell breaks loose. Which is why I’m so thrilled you chose to know the truth. It will make protecting you that much easier.” 

“All hell breaks loose?” I ask as I near the point of hyperventilation. “Why? What do you mean? Does this have something to do with the ring?” 

“Something to do with it, yes,” Vincent says as he stares at the bottom of the glass bottle. “Your kind is one of the most unique supers there are, Izzy. You ever sleep with anyone?” 

Vincent turns to face me with a sly smile. I slap him in the face as hard as I can, especially now that I know I can’t physically hurt him. 

“You really should stop slapping me,” Vincent suggests with another smile. “I might start liking it.” 

Character Bios

Elizabeth McBeth a.k.a. Liz, Izzy, Lizzy 

Age: 19 
Height: 5’4” 
Weight: 120 lbs 
Eyes: Green 
Hair: Blonde 

Traits: Extremely perceptive and intelligent. Liz possesses a very strong conviction of what is right and wrong. It is this sense of ethics that has her constantly questioning what is right and wrong. A little insecure and a bit of a whiner, Liz is very brave. Always willing to put herself in danger in order to help out others. 

Elizabeth McBeth is just what you would expect from any girl next door. She’s sweet, caring, and honest. She’s even got one of the sharpest young minds in the country. But she also has a secret that she has to live with. The horrible truth about her mother’s disappearance ten years ago… the whole reason why she studies the paranormal and goes out at night. Her mother’s disappearance has gravely hurt her life. She has to take care of her father, constant trips to the shrink and everyone looking at her like she’s a kook. Her life was pretty much going status quo until she met Michael while working at Jack’s Place Bar and Grill. 

Michael Clark a.k.a Michael the Ironskin 

Age: Approximately 535 years old 
Height: 6’8” 
Weight: 308 lbs while in his human form 
Eyes: Jade green 
Hair: Black 

Traits: Michael is a man from a different era. As a man who was originally born in Italy, he maintains the values of his upbringing. Honesty, honor, fair play and an emphasis on strategy; all of these are held in the highest of regards for the decorated werewolf. His nature and the role he plays in conserving nature’s balance make him very careful in choosing his friends. Michael is truly one of the most selfless beings ever to walk the Earth, but his role forces him to keep his existence a secret. 

Michael is a mystery to Liz, who is just tugging away layers from his handsome facade, desperately trying to uncover his secret. But what Liz doesn’t know, what she couldn’t possibly even suspect is that Michael is a werewolf. But unlike fictional werewolves, Michael is responsible for the order and balance of nature. It is Michael’s sole responsibility to make sure that the world of man and the world behind the veil, where the true world lies, never cause chaos to one another. But chaos follows Michael’s closest friend, Vincenzo Della Rosa, wherever he goes… 

Vincenzo Della Rosa a.k.a. Vincent, The Traitor 

Age: Exact age is unknown, even to him. Approximately 1700 years old 
Height: 6’2” 
Weight: 205 lbs 
Eyes: Sapphire blue 
Hair: Golden blonde 

Traits: Loud, condescending, sarcastic, and sometimes even outright insulting, Vincent is a force to be reckoned with. His time alive has made him very distant, even a little cold. But his aloof nature is a stark opposite of what he is really like inside. He is a fiercely loyal man who always puts others ahead of himself. His great insecurity comes from a great failure in his life, one that he may never forgive himself for…. 

Vincenzo Della Rosa, Vincent to everyone but his friends, isn’t your everyday hero. He’s sarcastic, lazy, and a shameless alcoholic. But what Liz, and even Michael, will learn is that Vincent himself hides behind those traits to mask a very deep pain. A pain that Liz is inexplicably connected to. This truth will make Vincent’s other secrets, including the fact that he is a 1700 year old vampire, seem small in comparison. But even with all of that in mind, if Vincent is the most powerful of his kind, why doesn’t he rule all of vampire society? The world might not be able to handle the truth.

Author Bio

You would think that as an aspiring writer I could come up with something witty or interesting to say about myself. But the truth is, I mostly enjoy telling stories. It's through stories that we learn the world, learn about our history or traditions, and in doing that we learn about ourselves. 

Ever since I was a very young child, my only dream was to become an author one day. To touch people with my words. Hopefully entertain them, maybe even give them something to think about. I use my books to reach people I normally would never reach. The internet has given us a lot of tools to spread the written word now more than ever. 

In my life, I've done many things, from supervising sales for big, retail giants, to even being a deputy sheriff. You would think a person who had been shot at for a living would be brave enough to write a biography about themselves. Unfortunately no.

I might be a writer right now, but one day I hope to be able to share my stories and experiences with many people. To be able to expand my globe of knowledge and share ideas with others, that's the dream and goal.
