Keeper of Reign Book Review & Giveaway

Keeper of Reign copy

Keeper of Reign Books written in blood. Most are lost, their Keepers with them. A curse that befell a people. A Kingdom with no King. Life couldn’t get more harrowing for the Elfies, a blend of Elves and Fairies. Or for sixteen-year-old Jules Blaze. Or could it? For Jules, the heir of a Keeper, no less, suspects his family hides a forgotten secret. It was bad enough that his people, the Elfies of Reign, triggered a curse which reduced the entire inhabitants to a mere inch centuries ago. All because of one Keeper who failed his purpose. Even the King’s Ancient Books, did not help ward off that anathema. Now, Gehzurolle, the evil lord, and his armies of Scorpents, seem bent on destroying Jules and his family. Why? Gehzurolle’s agents hunt for Jules as he journeys into enemy land to find the truth. Truth that could save him and his family, and possibly even reverse the age-long curse. Provided Jules doesn't get himself killed first.

This book had me within the first chapter - I loved the characters and the fact that they were (for the most part) Elfies (a cross between elves and fairies)  made it better.  Magical and mystical creatures have always been my favourite part of the fantasy genre.  I found myself worrying about Jules, Holden, Miranda, Ralston, Bitha, Tst Tst (my favourite!), and Topee.  I couldn't put the book down until I found out what happened.  Except I didn't.  Well I didn't find out everything - the big secrets are revealed in the next installment due in 2014.  I'm not generally a patient reader - I usually like to read whole series at a time - but this one is worth reading right away and waiting for the next installment. This book would be ideal to read out loud to the whole family.  The action is fast-paced, the twists and turns are novel, and you truly never know where the friends will end up next.  One of the best things about the book is that it's a "safe" read for a young teen - it's not inappropriate for younger readers but they may not understand parts of the romantic subplot - it's a grown up adventure without being sexual or using foul language. There is a character that every kid (and adult) can relate to, though a dictionary or thesaurus may be necessary for younger readers to understand some of what Tst Tst says.  Having been a loquacious child myself, I was drawn to Tst Tst.  Jules is the adventurous one but Tst Tst just grabbed my hand and led me through the adventure. Even with a partial cliffhanger ending, I was still satisfied when I finished the book.  The main plot may not have come to an end but several of the sub plots did and it felt right.  If you enjoyed the magic and mystery of The Hobbit or Harry Potter, Keeper of Reign is another must read.
