The first in the lyrical, exciting Keepers of Life trilogy by new talent Shea Berkley. Seventeen-year-old Dylan Kennedy always knew something was different about him.
When Dylan sees a girl in white in the woods behind his grandparents’ farm, he knows he’s seen her before in his dreams. He’s felt her fear and heard her insistence that only he can save her world from an evil lord who uses magic and fear to feed his greed for power.
There is a magical realm that exists alongside the human realm, but it wasn’t always so. The firsts are beings who were created to nurture the land. The world was split into two realms, and the firsts were allowed to redeem themselves.
Sadly, the majority continued with their self-indulgent behavior to the point where one of their own, a king, became so obsessed with power, he was secretly banished by the court in hopes his absence would calm the masses. But a spark of madness was ignited and not even the lost king’s absence could curtail what he set in motion.
Shea Berkley has a fondness for characters, whether in real life or those she makes up in her head while tending to the multitude of mundane tasks she’s forced to do in order to survive.
Writing gives her purpose (okay it keeps her out of trouble…mostly), and she can’t imagine herself doing anything else. (well maybe a zombie for the Walking Dead, but who doesn’t want to do that?). Since she leans toward the pubescent, she fits right in with the Young Adult book crowd.
