The Lovereading4Kids comment
A richly-conceived fantasy, this is a gripping story of secrets and special powers. Charlie Keeper, born with the genetic talent, the Will and the Way, and the gift to open doors that others cannot, is imprisoned in the mythical world of Bellania. Her captor is Lord Bane but, is he her greatest enemy? Will teaming up with the terrifying Edge Darkmount be the best way of saving herself and using her special powers to save the realm? Charlie’s story is a roller coaster ride.
And a view from a 9 year old:
This is better than all the Harry Potter books put together. This is by far the best fantasy novel that has been published since Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. This book's awesome characters, gripping plot and emotion use make this a true must-read! -- James, Year 9, Chigwell School [on Crow's Revenge]
Keeper of the Realms: The Dark Army by Marcus Alexander
'Your abilities as a Keeper allow you to open doors that others can not.' Imprisoned in the mythical world of Bellania, Charlie Keeper is at the mercy of Lord Bane's guards while her loyal friends have been sold into slavery. When the Terrifying Edge Darkmount breaks into her cell, he promises to decipher the meaning of her mysterious pendant - and unlock the secrets of Bellania - if she will help him get revenge on Bane. But can she Trust him? The future of the realm relies on Charlie's special powers. Even if she escapes it may take more than she can summon to overthrow the evil lord - it may take an entire army...
There's a surprise around every corner. Marcus Alexander has done a brilliant job. I would rather read Crow's Revenge than read Harry Potter! -- Michael B, Year 7
The story and artwork are excellent and they complement each other in the same way as Chris Riddell's artwork and Paul Stewart's storytelling do on their wonderful Edge Chronicles Fantasy Book Review
... a classic children's fantasy SFX
He was so enthusiastic - he was a performer as well as an author -- Rosie Dudgeon, School Librarian
The nature of the magic in Bellania felt particularly fresh, and will appeal to the imaginations of young readers. For me though, the most enjoyable part of the book was its villains [On Crow's Revenge] The Book Zone
