Overview


My name is Jenna Solitaire—and I am the Keeper of the Boards. I have the Board of Air. And every day, I hear the voice of the Board of Water calling to me. Somehow, I must find it and master its powers--before someone else does...

Having mastered the power of the Board of Air, Jenna travels to Jerusalem to find the Board of Water. She is accompanied by Simon Monk, who seeks the Boards on behalf of the Vatican. Jenna doesn’t trust Simon, but he’s her only source of information about the Boards. In Jerusalem, Jenna meets Saduj, a local guide who claims to be able to help them find the Board they seek. Simon is suspicious, but Jenna finds herself strangely attracted to Saduj. Jenna must find the Board before it awakens and causes unimaginable destruction. But will she lose her heart—and possibly her life—in the process?

EBOOK COMMENTARY

"Jenna Solitaire is an exciting new presence...Bring it on, Jenna!"--Nancy Holder, author of Queen of the Slayers and Pretty Little Devils, on Keeper of the Winds

"Jenna Solitaire's writing is creepy and fun!"--Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times best-selling author of the Seven Suns series and co-author of the Dune prequels, on Keeper of the Winds
VOYA
Jenna Solitaire is Keeper of the Boards, the unwilling heir of the long-ago enchantress Shalizander. Having in the first book of the Daughter of Destiny series, Keeper of the Winds (Tor Teen, 2005/VOYA review above), retrieved the Board of Air with considerable mayhem and danger to her small town and her friends, Jenna flies to the Holy Land in search of the Board of Water. She must collect and master the Boards-each controlling a force of nature-before the bad guys, represented by evil sorcerer Peraud, can find them and wreak unspecified havoc. Her guide in Jerusalem is handsome, seductive Saduj, supposedly a Templar Knight. Jenna's companion Simon, a Catholic priest, doesn't trust Saduj but Jenna knows he is literally the man of her dreams, whom she sees in her sleeping visions of a past existence. Saduj leads her to the ruins of the ancient city of Petra, where Jenna must fight for control of the Board of Water as Simon and Saduj square off in a contest of faith vs. magic. Jenna Solitaire, character and author, needs to get a grip. Every clichT of fantasy literature is here: flawed mentor, nanve girl, unmastered magical object, unsought but vital mission, evil powers, and yes, even demons. The quest is vague -- what does the Keeper do with all these Boards, anyway? -- and the fantasy elements clash with one another. Adding insult to injury, Saduj quotes bad poetry. With so many excellent fantasies available, readers can pass on this one. VOYA CODES: 2Q 2P J S (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q; For the YA with a special interest in the subject; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2006, Tor Teen/Tor, 225p.,Trade pb. Ages 12 to 18.
—Kathleen Beck
Children's Literature - Ann Sanger
In this magical mystery, Jenna Solitaire not only is the author but the main character of the series. She has her own blog site and communicates with teens online. Jenna, the Keeper of the Boards, has in her possession the Board of the Air. Now she and Simon Monk, a priest acting on behalf of the Vatican, search for the Board of the Waters. Jenna, who was orphaned at an early age, discovered the Board of the Air hidden in the attic after her grandfather's death. At nineteen she finds that she is from a long line of Keepers, descendants of Shalizander, the first Keeper of the Boards. Although the Keeper controls the boards, each possesses a strong personality and whispers constantly to the mind of the Keeper. The boards must be mastered or they could eventually take control and drive the Keeper mad. Suspense, intrigue, and unexpected twists in the plot make this book hard to put down. Nevertheless, this teen novel should have a PG-13 rating for sexual content. Although tastefully done for an adult reader, I would not be comfortable sharing the book with my 14-year-old niece. From the "Guardian of the Boards" series.

    Awesome

    I really liked this book. I bought the first one a few years back and desided to re-read it and then after reading it again, I had to buy the other three. I wish the sales were up on all of them so she could publish more books

    Even better then the first

    This book is very cleverly written. I enjoyed the first book Keeper of the Winds, but this one had much more action. it startes with Jenna getting and unexpected illness in the holy land as she and Simon search for the second board. There she meets a local guide who intrigues her but Simon doesn't trust him. Tom and Kristen pop up via blackberry. I reccomend it to anyone who wants a series they can sink there teeth into. tension rise in this book and we find out important things about the ever mysterious Simon!!!

    Amazing

    A great next part to a very interesting first part. Each little historical fact mixed with fantasy and otherworldly creatures was amazing! I wanted more and couldn't believe when I finished it!

    I absoluetly loved it!

    This book was so interesting! I love the way that the author brings history into the story! Jenna has mastered the Board of the Winds and is now heading after the Board of the Waters! She is heading to Jerusalem! When she gets off the plane she sees a man that she just can't take her eyes off of! His name is Sanduj. Simon acts extremely jealous! Jenna uses the Chronicle and finds out about a Holder who kept the Board of the Waters and she realises that it happened near the Dead Sea! So she was right to guess Jerusalem! Simon becomes incresingly sucspicious of Sanduj and he seems to have a reason why.....
