Book Description: The complete Keeper Chronicles. Claire Hansen was a Keeper, a member of Earth's Guardians charged with keeping the universe in one piece, going where she was Summoned--to places where anomalies existed or rifts had opened--to seal up the world's danger spots before all the minions of Hell could break through.
Summon the Keeper: When Claire and Austin the cat (who would assure those he was willing to talk to that he was really Claire's keeper) found themselves Summonded to the Elysian Fields Guest House, they had no way of knwing what lay in store for them. The body in room six, or, more precisely, a woman who'd obviously been locked in a spell for years, was bad enough. But that was nothing compared to what waited in the basement--a barely contained portal into Hell itself....
The Second Summoning: Claire and Austin had acquired a new companion--Dean. Claire knew she should make Dean forget she existed. But wihtou him around she could easily become a danger to herself and the very fabric of space and time. Yet with Dean around--and her sister Diana's meddling thrown in--the world was headed strait for Chaos. And Claire was about to face a catastrophe created by the power of love--when an angel and a devil each manifested in the mortal world as fully endowed teenagers, who didn't have a clue how to handle their all-too-human bodies, raging hormones, and opposing needs to do good and evil.
Long Hot Summoning: Diana, like her sister Claire, was a Keeper. What neither Diana nor Sam--Diana's talking cat--could have anticipated was that her first Summons as an active Keeper would be to a shopping mall. But a quick trip to the Erlking's Emporium mall in Kingston confirmed Diana's worst suspicions. Not only was Darkness trying to stage a takeover from the Otherside, but if Diana didn't bring in reinforcements, her first Summons might well be her last.
