Summon the Keeper by Tanya Huff

Book 1 of Keeper Chronicles

This first book of the Keeper series introduces us to Claire - a Keeper - who is called to were she is needed.  She finds herself at a run down bed and breakfast where a hole to hell has been left open and an evil Keeper has been trapped in one of the rooms for years.  There is a lot of humour included, and I found the cat character became my favourite.  The magic used throughout the story was entertaining, and not always predicatable too.  I enjoyed how the author approached familiar creatures (vampires and werewolves) and the Olympus Gods were a nice touch.  Despite the good humour in the plot, the tense scenes were well written and strenghtened a readers connection to the characters.  Dean and Claire's relationship developes throughout the book, however, they are still orbiting around each other by the end of this book.
