THE KEEPER’S CURSE

Current Stage: Beta-reader feedback received; Draft #4 on hold

Genre: YA Epic / High Fantasy novel

Current Word Count: 98,000 words

Seventeen-year-old Eva wants to kill Mountain Folk. Ever since a clan of them killed her parents and injured her wing years ago, the Fei girl has hated that race of rugged warriors and gem-healers. Yet Eva’s desire clashes with her diplomatic duties for her people’s Council of Selanaan. And so she keeps it secret, hoping her chance will come one day.

Everything changes when a band of Mountain Folk enters the Fei’s forest. Their mission is to retrieve lost artifacts in the faraway Cavern of the Keeper. But first, they need the Fei to destroy an ancient curse that plagues the cavern. To Eva’s horror, her Council is tasked to join the Mountain Folk for this purpose – and she, as the Chief Navigator, must lead the way.

Now, Eva will have no choice but to suppress her desire again. She’ll need to guide the Mountain Folk across the Great Isle, slip past mind-leeching shadow demons, and survive the tensions within her travel party. And as she grows closer to her companions, she’ll have to confront her own darkness. Can she let go of her past for the mission’s sake? Or will she risk everything – even her life – for the sake of revenge?

  3. I’m so sorry Sara – I’ve somehow missed out on a tranche of your blogs:((. I really like the title The Keeper’s Curse is catchy, alliterative and lodges in the head – I’d go for it if I were you! The summary is okay – but you’re right, it needs tightening. It often takes me several editing passes before I’ve really drilled down to the core of what my book is ABOUT. Which I know sounds random, but happens to be the case…
