In the third book of Ted Sanders’ Keepers series, Horace and his friends discover their talismans of power may be dying out. Now the race is on to save their way of life—and the world as we know it.
Horace F. Andrews and his friends are fighting the battle of their lives, a battle that will decide the fate of everyone and everything they love. As Wardens and Keepers of Tan’ji, the fabled talismans of power, it is their duty to keep the world safe from those who would destroy it. But all is not as it seems. Sometimes there are too many secrets, and too many places to stumble in the dark. When one powerful Keeper and his Tan’ji are kidnapped, the Wardens have to ask who could have betrayed them. Who could have let the enemy into their stronghold?
This third book in Ted Sanders’ gripping series leads the reader onto new paths, new revelations, and new mysteries in the Keepers saga, where answers only bring more questions and the secrets behind the true nature of good and evil are revealed.
