    This is a hard book to describe It starts off almost fantasy like on a medieval type world without technology where the greatest fear is dark magic Into this scenario is introduced a woman who clearly does not belong uin is a traveler from far away really far away searching for the fabled Blue Demon but what she discovers is a broken male who is anything but demonic Keir is waiting to die but the red haired female just won't give up Breaking him out of a cell is just the beginning as Keir is transported from all that he knows to a life that he could never contemplate but uin saving Keir is uite literally just the beginning of this wildly twisting storyExplanations and world building are clearly not part of the authors plan There is no great information drop to ease the reader in and indeed we only seem to learn exactly what Keir does I fear that might frustrate some readers initially but implore you to keep going as the pay off is so worth it This is a complicated story that develops and it literally zips from place to place introducing characters and alien life forms that boggle the readers mindI started reading unsure really of just who and what Keir and uin are and I'm still wading through those muddy waters Yet when it became of a sci fi adventure it really allowed the couple to grow Romance? It would be easy to just say yes but of a connection that felt soul deep Keir's journey into the light is one that had this reader cheering him on Also his personal growth to become a man ready to fight for the woman he loves takes some beating I won't lie it is very complicated and not a story to dip into hoping to get saucy entertainment However if you want sci fi that engages your emotions unusual aliens and to finish a book smiling then I'd happily recommend this book Just a uick word of caution though as the final few pages are hard to read and you might need tissues handyI was gifted a copy of this in exchange for an honest reviewFour and a half from me

    I Loved This Loved it It's some of the best science fiction I've read in a while with two incredibly different main characters who discover that they're not so different after allYes there are alien races yes there are other planets but deep down what I love most about this book is that it's a book about peopleKeir has been ostracized his entire life because of his blue skin Otherwise seemingly normal Keir has been forced to hide in the shadows scavenge for food and fend off attackers since a young age As a result he's incredibly distrusting When he first meets uin he's being held in a storage room a beaten and battered prisoner The pair manages to escape leading them down a road where Keir finds not only acceptance but a deep abiding loveOf course that's not all and you're gonna have to read the book to find out The worlds Pippa creates are wonderfully done each having its own customs lore and geology Nothing feltcontrived or too difficult to understand if that makes any sense Each world the characters travel to feels like it could exist somewhere and the different alien races are fleshed out with their own political issues customs etc At its heart Keir is a story of love and redemption for both Keir and uin two incredibly broken people who find healing with one another Though Keir has suffered the most physically and mentally uin has suffered emotionally Immortal after the destruction of her world uin has traveled the stars searching for the being responsible for destroying everything and everyone she loved She's loved and lost along the way and each loss has left its scar Once she starts falling for her Smurfin companion she wonders if he could ever love her but buries her feelings The middle of the book is when their love story truly starts and it's pretty amazing to read I laughed and cried with both as they found their ways to each other And just FYI the last 20 pages or so nearly scarred me I was almost bawlingPippa Jay's Keir is most definitely a fantastic science fiction read admittedly I read it all in one day It's also a fantastic read that happens to be science fiction I would recommend this heavily

    From the first scene I was hooked I found myself rooting for Keir before I knew his story The author weaves a sympathetic tale following tortured souls through a life changing adventure Her light touch keeps the characters easily relatable without ever dissolving into schmaltz uin is an engaging heroine whose self assurance ingenuity and desire to help others immediately establishes her as a heroine of epic proportions Keir is almost an anti hero whose journey of self discovery takes him to the darkest reaches of his own nature and eventually leads him to the hero within himself Together they travel through time and space and save each other This is a sweet love story woven through an epic adventureWith shades of Doctor Who Time Bandits and LadyHawke Keir is a different kind of SF romance that will leave you sighing long after you've closed the book

    I read the original version of this story three years ago and loved it Then I had the chance to read the seuel which captivated me as much as the first book I had no idea there had been a revision but was graciously offered an opportunity to read the newer version Of course I snatched that upThe story opens on a world where there is a human society that is still medieval in technology and in thinking A world where a man who is different is thought to be demon spawn and treated as such Keir has been abused his whole life simply for existing and he is tired and ready to die when a feisty and fiery woman accused of being a witch for the red color of her hair is dumped into his cell under the castle After Keir saves uin's life and then their escape uin won't leave him to die and performs her own life saving rescue She is disappointed that the trail that led her to Keir's world and Keir might be wrong Keir isn't the monster of legend that she was seeking Or is he?uin's psy ability can open gateways to other places and times and she lives on a world where different is okay Slowly Keir heals after uin used her ability to bring him back from near death and created a permanent bond between them The much abused Keir and the fragile but tough galaxy drifter uin slowly trust and open up to each other Keir agrees to help uin on her uest to find a long lost friend uin's uest becomes personal when it involves Keir's past And while the new pair are learning to work together and survive a shadow from uin's past is making plans of his own I thought it would be fun and interesting to see how things were changed while enjoying a re read of a story I already loved But alasmy memory couldn't latch onto any certain differences I only have the overall impression of tighter and smoother writing and maybe that things are described differently? Yeah I'm no help for those who would be interested in a comparisonBut what I do know is that it was as engaging original complex and emotional as the first time through Keir is a hero that is worth rooting for He grows and comes into his own while adventuring and finding the love of his life And uin discovers she has room left in her bruised and lonely heart for one shot at love and a man who helps her put the past guilt and mistakes in perspective while standing by her and letting her be herI like that this involves several alien races and worlds that are truly alien and see things differently uin is a form of drifter She is human but because of what has happened to her she is far from her human roots as the blue skinned Keir who is also human As they work to stay alive and fulfill uin's need to find her lost friend they encounter different worlds and beings It was fun for Keir to finally start to realize that he may be uniue but he isn't the only uniue being and acceptance is finally availableThe plot had exciting moments as Keir and uin are in deadly danger uite often There is also mystery and intrigue going on Keir's past is a mystery but there is also brief glimpses of a shadowy figure from uin's past working against her I might have noticed it the first time but I definitely did this go around that there are a few minor details that don't uite get explained or are left open ended A couple of those can definitely figure into future segments of the story Or to be honest they can be left dangling as they are curiosity points than stuff that affects the main plotThe romance is a friends to lovers and goes slow by necessity Keir was so abused that he struggles with basic kindness touch and motives including his own He doesn't realize he is attracted to uin and mistakes it for gratitude for the longest time When he does figure it out he is ashamed because he believes that while uin is his friend she would never welcome anything and would be disgusted by even his touch in that way And uin she knows what it is to love and be loved but she has lost her first and betrayed by her second so she shies away from trying again especially with one who is unstable in power and shaky in recovering from abuse as Keir I liked that though Keir is in the process of coming into his own uin isn't perfect and made her own mistakes to balance them as a team and pair of lovers It was a sweet romance that timed it well down to the intense heartbreaking events of the endSo it happened to me again fell deeply in love with Keir the Blue Demon and his uin and wanted to keep adventuring with them indefinitely Lovers of sweet and exciting sci fi romance need to give this one a goI was gifted a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review

    Originally published at Reading RealityKeir is an absolutely stunning work of science fiction romance when I say stunning I mean that in the best possible sense of the word When I finished I just sat staring for several minutes because I couldn't uite pull myself away from the story's spellTaruin Secker comes to Adalucien pursuing the legend of the Blue Demon In the bowels of the royal prison she finds an emaciated young man on the brink of death with tattoos and rags covering his blue skinKeirlan de Corizi is not the demon she came for But uin wouldn't leave any sentient being in those inhumane conditions So she blows up the prison just like she planned Except it's not uite like she planned The prison very nearly crushes her to deathInstead of her rescuing Keir he saves her life Then she saves his And then of course things get seriously messyKeir is not exactly the Blue Demon she was looking for But he's not exactly not either Which isn't to say that his entire planet doesn't firmly believe that he IS the legendary Blue Demon Who really did exist Who has to have existed because she's Keir's direct ancestorShe was also the person who destroyed uin's homeworld and uin has been searching for her ever since Because in the process she accidentally gave uin a whole lot of interesting and dangerous powers And sent her best friend wandering among the many worldsuin is on a uest to find the original Demon the Sentiac At first she saves Keir because he needs saving Because she feels a kinship His ancestry gives him a touch of the same power that she hasBut as he heals from all the damage that has been done to him she discovers that Keir may be what she has been waiting for all the long centuries that she has been on her search He may be a companion for the long years she has aheadIf he can heal from everything that has happened to him If he can learn to control the power that he now knows he has If most important of all they can learn to trust each other with their many and in uin's case many times many secretsVerdict Keir was one of the winners of the SFR Galaxy Awards for 2012 Full disclosure I was one of the judges The uestion among the other judges wasn't whether Keir was going to get an award the uestion was who would get to give it one This was a favorite but I hadn't read itNow I know why everyone loved it so muchThe opening absolutely grabs the reader by the throat Keir is in chains and you can feel the dungeon closing in around him uin sudden drop into his grey world is a jolt to him and the reader Her disappointment that he isn't who she expected and her complete unwillingness to let him die pull you into her point of viewTheir relationship builds slowly and realistically Keir has no idea what it's like to love and be loved He is literally his world's pariah He can't imagine that anyone could ever love him uin has loved and lost profondly in ways that are beyond Keir's experience She is three centuries old and he is barely twenty Not just May and December but April and Methuselah no matter that uin appears to be in her late twentiesThe book has an element of two stories combined into one The first part is Keir's rescue and training and the first mission to find the original Blue Demon It's Keir's discovery of who he really is and where and what he came from His search for identityThe second part is uin's mission to train Keir to use his power because he is a danger to everyone around him This mission takes the form of exile from uin's homebase While visiting one of uin's old friends she runs headlong into one of her old enemies And it's there that her relationship with Keir finally flowersBe prepared for the ending It will absolutely blow you awayI give Keir by Pippa Jay 5 glorious stars

    Loved this book Keir was a fantastic read The hero Keir and the heroine uin had so much rich character development Both of them were riddled with emotional and physical scarring; however it was beautifully woven into the storyline to make them stronger people Together they were able to overcome their insecuritiesKeir is packed with action adventure intrigue and spicy love scenesbut one of my favorite things was the role reversal Keir was the inexperienced one and I loved that uin taught him not just how to make love because that was hot but how to experience life and to open himself up to forgiveness Keir suffered a great many things but uin was there to support encourage and bring him back to lifeA few of my favorite lines from the book“I am not friendly I am dangerous”He felt her presence in his mind still like cool hands soothing his fevered thoughts It both disturbed and comforted him Was she an angel in human guise? Or some demon sent to torment him before delivering him to his final hell?His words filled her with a sadness so sharp she had to fight down tearsHe screamed for help as they took him through shadowy streets to an unknown place but no one cameWhy am I such a sucker for tortured souls?“We weren’t meant to have these powers Keir but it’s how we use them that defines who and what we are”“Friends may easily become enemies Prosperity attracts envy We must always be wary of complacency and misplaced trust”Would learning the truth justify the risk?For the first time in remembrance he wanted to touch and be touched in return To hold her and have her return his embrace freely with than a friend’s affection To feel her white skin under his fingertips To brush the hair from her face as the breeze did now and run his fingers through itHe leaned close to her and the darkness of his eyes seemed to swallow her soul “Your fears will come to pass”I have but pretty soon I'll be uoting the entire book So go buy it Keir is a must read

    I've just finished reading this one I have never read a lot of science Fiction Honestly though I love watching Sci Fi I was never moved to pick up a book and read it This was an amazing book Pippa has done an amazing job of developing characters and the worlds they travel to I could see clearly the places and people she described Rarely have I read a book that made me laugh cry my heart race etc This book was beautifully written and a wonderful story If this is where Pippa is starting out clearly we can expect many wonderful tales as she grows and develops as a writer Personally I can't wait for the next tales of Keir and uin They both feel like dear friends to me now and I can't wait to experience their next adventures with them Well Done Pippa

    I'm not usually a sci fi fan but Keir may have changed all that Thankfully it's not too heavy on the techie side and there was chemistry from the off from the 'Blue Demon' and the 'Red Witch' lol I loved uinn she was absolutely brilliant and is now one of my fave kick a heroinesThis is an epic adventure story with space travel and magic heart break and pain There is real character growth too The writing is just beautiful and made everything very visual It was a thoroughly entertaining read and I can't wait for the seuel
