    Fun filled story that will leave you wanting more!

    Jump into a world filled with magic in adventure in "The 58the Keeper" by R.G. Bullet.



    Archy lives a lonely life, but all of that will change once he is thrust into a mystery that will have him fighing to stay alive and prove his worth as the 58the keeper. The plot of this story is very imaginative and keeps readers on their toes every step of the way. The story also had a very good flow to it and didn't leave readers confused on exactly what was going on in each chapter.



    Archy was a very empathetic and relatable character and I believe that many of us could see ourselves in Archy. Many of us have felt lonely and wished for some adventure in our lives at one point or another. His character grew throughout the story as well and even when times got tough he stuck to it. This was a very fun story that I think also shows readers that no matter how bad things are we can always turn them around for the better.

    (Review by Cynthia Shepp for Word Vagabond) Welcome to a world

    (Review by Cynthia Shepp for Word Vagabond)

    Welcome to a world like no other. Welcome to Rushbury’s, a boarding school for boys. This is no place you would want to be, though. This place is more like a prison than a school. Meet the convicts- I mean, pupils- of the school: Archy Bass and his friend, Vincent Maynard-Bull. Archy is an orphan in Britain who lives with a foster mother who not only does not let him watch TV, but treats her dogs better than she does him. Vincent has a rich father, but gets to enjoy none of the perks, as his father is trying not to spoil him and so only gives him the bare essentials.

    While on holiday in Turkey, Archy finds himself swindled out of his possessions on the beach by a man, Alturus, who gives him only a rug in return. He tries to convince Archy that the rug is magic and that Archy is now the “58th Keeper”. Archy believes that the man is crazy, but finally receives a book from Alturus explaining how to use it. The rug makes whoever sits on it invisible, and it flies. But Alturus is not the best help when it comes to the rug and how to use it properly. Alturus tells Archy of a TimeQuest that he messed up, which he needs Archy to help him fix. Throw in goons chasing after Archy to steal the rug, Vincent’s twin sister, Georgia, joining the boys, and a discovery of the Sentinels, a whole organization that controls the Keepers, and you have the beginnings of a wild ride. Go a step farther and add in a journey back in time, which all three kids go on, in order to return something that never should have been taken, and you have a book that will have you guessing, and loving it, till the very end.

    Let me just say first that I absolutely loved this book. It is a ‘tween’ book and the characters are only about twelve, but I could see myself buying this book for my children, or even sitting down and reading it to them. I was hooked from the first page, and I literally held my breath in some spots right along with Archy. The author painted an extremely vivid world and no matter what city the kids where in, you felt like you were there, whether it was Turkey or ancient Rome. The characters were well thought out and developed and their escapades reminded me of being young. The storyline was awesome. It was funny, sweet and had you rooting for the kids to the very end. It takes a lot of imagination and ingenuity to come up with a book this unique, when the story of a flying carpet has been done so many times. I hope that this was just the first journey that Archy and friends went on, and that there will be many more to come. I give this book 5 stars!
