The Keeper and the Rune Stone, Book One

An unholy ritual, a ticking clock. Four children discover there are things that go bump in the night …

Centuries ago a group of Elves committed an unholy ritual. But the ritual was a spectacular failure. It transformed the Elves into the Noctivagi – the beings we know as vampires.

Striving to maintain a fragile peace, the ancient Elves and Dwarves negotiated an Accord, which they’ve renewed every year on the Summer Solstice. The ceremony depends on the magical Rune Stone, but it’s missing. If it is not found—and quickly—the consequences could be dire, and not just for Elves and Dwarves.

Four children, Rob, Jack, Eleanor, and Flora, stumble into a world of magic and mayhem when they move into Black Ledge, the old estate on the Maine coast, and discover they aren’t the only ones who live there.

In an adventure reminiscent of Susan Cooper’s The Dark is Rising, children’s book readers everywhere will enjoy this fulfilling romp through a gothic style manor, rolling countryside and dark underground. Like many fantasy stories, The Keeper and the Rune Stone centers around children whose innocent faith allow them to see, hear, and believe that which would be disbelieved by a willfully ignorant adult. This troupe makes any child reader believe that he/she is special and this could happen to them too. I love that in a book. It expands the reader’s sights and keeps their imagination active. As a homeschooling mother, I will pass this one on to my twelve year old son, and highly recommend it for even the most reluctant of readers.
