AFM Summer Reading List
If you are fan of Harry Potter or Percy Jackson then you will want to read The Keeper and The Rune Stone by Paige W. Pendleton.
Here is a brief summary of the book.
The Black Ledge Series
The secrets of the Red Paint People have haunted Maine for 7000 years. From the vast fjords of Norway to the shores of New England, ancient standing stones mark a trail of betrayal, greed, and murder…
The Keeper and the Rune Stone, Book One  An unholy ritual, a ticking clock. Four children discover there are things that go bump in the night …Centuries ago a group of Elves committed an unholy ritual. But the ritual was a spectacular failure. It transformed the Elves into the Noctivagi – the beings we know as vampires. Striving to maintain a fragile peace, the ancient Elves and Dwarves negotiated an Accord, which they’ve renewed every year on the Summer Solstice. The ceremony depends on the magical Rune Stone, but it’s missing. If it is not found—and quickly—the consequences could be dire, and not just for Elves and Dwarves. Four children, Rob, Jack, Eleanor, and Flora, stumble into a world of magic and mayhem when they move into Black Ledge, the old estate on the Maine coast, and discover they aren’t the only ones who live there.
First let me say that I am so happy that this book is part of the series. I so  wish that I lived in a mansion like the children get to live in. There is something about older homes that are just so elegant and classic. And plus there are better chances for them to be haunted. I loved that Pendleton, chooses as her main characters 4 siblings, who are unique in their own right. The youngest Flora reminded me a lot of  my youngest, Gracie, with stuffed bunny that she carries everywhere. Remember Gracie and her Beary. Eleanor reminds me a lot of my oldest, Maddie, in that she is  sympathetic and cares for everything . The characters of Jack and Rob, I felt were a combination of  my middle daughter, Mikaela.
I love how we are introduced into a fantasy world of elves, fairies and dwarves. Pendleton makes such a great point in this book saying that children have the unique quality of seeing what adults cannot see. How cool is that? I have often found myself trying to look through the eyes of my children and I am surprised at what I see when I get on their level. I realized they are wise beyond through years. They have actually taught me a thing or too,
So if you a fan of novels with a fantasy realm setting than this book is for you. Check out what others are saying about this book by following the tour.
