Overview

CAN THEY ALL SURVIVE?

Princess Arenelle has done what no other girl in the history of Eldearth has done! She has completed the Quest to become the next Imperial Wizard, Keeper of the Light that protects Eldearth from Evil. Soon she will be apprenticed to the current Keeper, and her training will begin.

Or will it? When Arenelle's father, King Einar, discovers that he has a long lost son, the King has a change of heart, forbidding Nell to proceed. The boy must be the Chosen One, the King decrees. It is he who should become Apprentice. Nell is in turn outraged and bewildered by this turn of events, all the more so when she discovers that her long lost brother is Owen, the very same street urchin she discovered in the Lanes and sent off to Witch Academy to pose as herself.

In this continuation of The Keeper's saga, Nell defies the King and decides to pursue the Wizardry anyway, but when her brother falls into the hands of the Dark Forces and her father sets off on a dangerous rescue mission, all else is forgotten and Nell embarks on a rescue mission of her own. Can Nell unravel the puzzle of the dark, mysterious forces that seek to prevent her -- or her brother -- from becoming the next Keeper?

In the second installment of the Keepers trilogy, Nell, a promising young witch, continues her difficult quest to become Apprentice Keeper.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Jackie French Koller creates a fantastical story filled with dragons, deceit and love. Princess Arenelle is about to receive the Mantle of Trust from her father to begin her journey to become the next Imperial Wizard. In a twist of fate, however, her long-lost twin brother, Owen, is discovered, and her father feels conflicted about which of his children will take on the role. An untrustworthy subject in cahoots with the Dark Forces of Eldearth takes Owen prisoner, and Arenelle and her gang of misfit friends embark on an adventure to save her brother from the evil Lord Graieconn. Along the way, Arenelle learns the horrible truth about her kingdom and sets out on her own mission to change it for the better. The second book in Koller's "The Keepers" series, this novel continues to follow the journey of Princess Arenelle as her wild adventures unfold. Full of surprising twists and turns, this humorous and entertaining novel with witty banter and amusing episodes will keep the reader captivated and begging for more. 2003, Aladdin Paperbacks, Ages 8 to 12.
