Keeper of Reign
by Emma Right
Sixteen-year-old Jules Blaze is an Elfie - half elf, half fairy, living in a cursed Kingdom. The Keepers, entrusted to protect sacred Books written in blood, have long forgotten their purpose and struggle with the effects of the curse.
Jules finds himself in the crosshairs of an evil lord bent on destroying Keepers and their Books. His mother is a Keeper and she has disappeared, along with his grandparents. His father is nowhere to be found, and Jules now finds himself alone with four siblings to protect and a house ravaged by the enemies.
War rages on all sides of his homeland. Agents and assassins sent by the evil Gehzurolle are determined to kill him. Jules must find an ancient book whose secrets are the only thing that could give him answers and save him, his family and his homeland.
Read an exclusive excerpt:
The others stood by the doorway and gaped.
“Why didn’t Grandpa tell us of this—this library?” Tst Tst’s eyes stared accusingly at Jules.
He shrugged. “Maybe you were too young—I don’t know. We shouldn’t argue about this, we don’t even know where Mom is.”
On hearing this, Tst Tst and Bitha cried, “They took her!” Tst Tst whimpered between sobs.
“Do you think the intruders are inside our living room, now?”
Ralston’s voice quaked.
Miranda said, “These books are made for giants! There’s no way a normal Elfie can handle them.”
Jules had never heard her so surprised. “They were for normal people.
Once. Elfies were normal, once.” She took the lantern from Bitha and moved toward the nearest book-case. “Where did your grandpa get all these books?”
“It’s a family thing. An inheritance. You wouldn’t find it interesting.”
“Like jipsy I wouldn’t? How’d they even bring these giant books through your tiny doors?” She faced Jules squarely, her blue eyes burning like emeralds. “Tell me your secrets.”
