Horace F. Andrews and his friend, Chloe, are Keepers of magical objects of extraordinary power. But as the presence of a new Keeper is made known, they are drawn into a struggle to find out who she is and where her loyalties lie. A gripping sequel to The Box and the Dragonfly, the first book in Ted Sanders' Keepers series, hailed by the New York Times Book Review as a "satisfying and original quest tale".
As Horace and Chloe adjust to their newfound talents - Horace can see the future, and Chloe can walk through walls - a girl called April is drawn toward the Keeper stronghold, the Warren. She comes with a Tan'ji of her own, though it is damaged, and there is no telling what will happen if it cannot be made whole again. Accompanied by a mysterious woman with a power of her own and the young boy leading them in the right direction, April is being pursued by a pack of sinister hunters. Will she reach the Warren in time, and will it offer safety or only more danger?

I had a hard time with this story. I didn't really care for the characters, too sullen & rather unlikeable. The plot is so thick it was hard to follow. Had to keep "rewinding" the audio. I lost interest but kept thinking it might get better. Finished with another cliff hanger that I'm not interested in finishing. Would not recommend this. I read or listen to all the books I give to my nieces & nephews between 10-15 years old. It's just OK.
I have to say that this has been one of the best series I've listened to in years. Great character development, story, and unexpected twist and turns. I give this book series 10 stars!!! I can wait for the next book!!!
