Sixteen year old Jules Blaze, heir of a Keeper, suspects his family hides a forgotten secret. It's 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 Books, penned with the Majesty's own blood, did not help ward off this 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.

My Review(Provided and Written by Amber McCallister)
Keeper of Reign is a fast-paced journey of self-discovery and great adventure. We watch with bated breath as a long forgotten legacy is slowly unraveled before our eyes. Legend is finally brought to light and destiny is slowing being fulfilled. The despised and neglected are standing up to claim their heritage and their birthright, and the plans of evil are being undone. Keeper of the Reign is a brilliant start to a very promising story.
The strong relationships that are forged throughout this story really spoke to my heart about the strength and courage that we draw from our friends and family whether we realize it or not. Throughout the good times and the bad times, we tend to glean the best from each other. This speaks volumes about how important it is that we do our best to cherish the time that we have with each other. We are not guaranteed a long life. We are not even guaranteed tomorrow or even the next second, so we need to never waste our words fussing or fighting. Instead, we should concentrate on loving each other. We need to see past the bad and forgive the pain brought upon us by those we love, so that we can continue to grow and become all that we are meant to be.
Emma Right has penned a beautiful story of devastating loss, unwavering faith, and promising hope. I am anxious to see how this story unfolds and find out what Right has in store for us. This story will warm your heart and keep you guessing. I would heartily recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy story with solid, well-developed characters.
