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.
Miranda pulled her arm free from Saul’s grip. “Why do you enjoy humiliating me?”
“Why do you insist on leaving the house without my permission?” Saul paced his breathing and placed a hand to his chest.
“I’m not a piece of furniture you can set in the corner and expect to stay put.”
“I will not let history repeat itself. You know our situation. We must take extra precautions.” “You must take extra precaution. Me? I have a nor-mal life.”
“There’s nothing normal about what you’re doing, Miranda.” Saul’s eyes locked with his granddaughter’s. Blue like the seamless sky. How similar her eyes were to Chrystle’s. It was as if his daughter had returned, been brought back to life, after all these years.
“What—what are you talking about?” Miranda stumbled over her words.
But Saul just turned and walked away, his head bowed low, shoulders drooped.
“Grandpa! Wait.” Miranda kept pace with Saul’s brisk steps. “You think Mrs. Blaze is at the Laceworks’?” She wrung her hands and looked at the branches.
“If she wasn’t captured.”
“We have to get there quickly.”
“Why so nervous?”
