From the Award-Winning Author of THE RAINBOW WEAVER'S APPRENTICE:
"Our family is not like everyone else, Maia.
People wouldn't believe us if they knew who we really are."
Spending the summer in a spooky mansion with her mean aunt isn't Maia's idea of fun. Especially when strange and dangerous incidents follow her from day one.
Something eerie is happening in this small town: a giant hound with glowing eyes stalks her, and a ghost girl shows up to warn her of danger. When Maia stumbles into a Fairy Tunnel and narrowly escapes becoming prisoner of the Fairies, she learns the townspeople are in grave danger and uncovering her family's secret past is key to saving them.
Allies come forth to help with her quest, but can she trust her new friends when she suspects none of them are what they appear?
The Last Gatekeeper is a fantasy book for kids ages 9-12. It is book two in The Fairy Tunnels series and can be read as a standalone novel. Filled with magic and adventure, it will delight middle-grade readers at every turn of the page.
