This is Book one in a great new fantasy adventure series that was picked up by Puffin after it became a self publishing sensation. For Keeper of the Realms, think Lemony Snicket meets The Wizard of Oz!

Charlie Keeper has been forced from her home by a bloodthirsty and terrifying stranger. But in escaping she discovers her house holds the gateway to the Realm of Bellania - a place of myth, magic ...and an evil Lord with a very bad attitude. Now its fate rests squarely upon Charlie's shoulders. Game on!

Reviews

"This book is a must read, the perfect mixture of a cracking story and beautiful illustrations. The best news of all is that it is only the first book in a proposed trilogy..." - Fantasy Book Review

“…Sheer imagination alone does not make this a great book – but the author’s ability to write in such a far-reaching, provocative and enthralling manner does. Charlie is a fantastic heroine. Bellania is a wonderfully dense and mysterious place, and Alexander can give himself a pat on the back for a job magnificently well done. Better than Rowling…” The Truth About Books

'..ticks all the right boxes: a feisty heroine, an evil powerful enemy and a new world to explore with its own races, sports and dragons.. This is a fast paced fantasy novel which will appeal to girls and boys alike.' Families South West

"..you can definitely compare the author to the likes of J K Rowling, Tolkien and Prachett - it really does have that much potential. The lead character..must be the coolest lead character the team at Doodled Books has ever come across..." - Doodled Books

About the Author

Marcus Alexander

After several incident-filled years of travelling the world Marcus Alexander decided to pack in all serious attempts at reaching maturity and instead embraced the much more suitable world of parchment scribbling for a living. Marcus has a fondness for causing mischief, knows how to run really, really fast when he's in trouble and knows how to duck out of sight when someone points the long, bony finger of blame. Find out more about him and Charlie's adventures at whoischarliekeeper.com.

In Keeper of the Realms, Charlie Keeper plays K'Changa. In this video, you can see Marcus and gymnasts giving a demonstration:
