So shortly after finishing this book I found my 11 year old was online looking up books from this author. She was thrilled to find out that I already had book two in this series. I haven't seen her this happy about a book in a while. So off she went and disappeared for the rest of the day with this book.
I really love how these books pull in the reader. This one throws you into the mix right off the bat and is a little darker than book one. My daughter said that she loved this one even more than book one and can't wait to get more from this author. The world building in this is breathtaking and the story is very fast paced as it putts down the road very nicely.
This is high fantasy for kids and will keep the reader reading until the early morning. We get more awesome characters in this book with a new set of powers. And of course were still along for the ride with Horace (still love that name) and Chloe as they find out just how much nothing is impossible!
Note: Give this to your kids on a Friday night
IN THE WORLD OF THE KEEPERS, IT'S BEST NOT TO SPEAK IN TERMS OF THE IMPOSSIBLE.
Horace F. Andrews, Keeper of the fabled Box of Promises, knows that nothing is impossible. After all, he has the ability to see into the future, and his friend Chloe can walk through walls. But before either of them can master their Tan'ji--their talismans of power--a new threat looms over all Keepers, and they must prepare to battle their eternal enemies--the Riven.
Far away, drawn by an irresistible summons, a mysterious girl is making her way to the Warren, the Keeper stronghold. She wears the Ravenvine and is learning to wield its fascinating power; but this Tan'ji is damaged. There's no telling what will happen to the instrument or its Keeper if it cannot be made whole again. April's journey is long and dangerous, with strange new companions at her side and a pack of sinister hunters tracking her. Will she reach the Warren in time, and is it a safe haven, or will it offer only more danger?
Ted Sanders's magical series began with The Box and the Dragonfly and continues with this powerful sequel that expands the extraordinary world of the Keepers, where nothing is ever ordinary and three words rule: Curiosity. Discovery. Possibility.
