The Longlight Legacy continues, and so does Roan’s journey in the ‘The Keeper’s Shadow. Roan is pulled further into his life story, along with many friends at his side, and enemies at his back. He wavers between the Dream Field and reality. His quest to save his sister turns into a war, not only to save her, but also, to save all of humanity.

This book has an incredible way of bringing the characters off the pages. If you were to pick up the book, you would feel as if the characters were at your side, you’d feel their fingers brush along cold metal, or you’d see the horrific war scenes. It was all so real, that I felt as if I was living there myself. The many different traits of each person were interesting as well. They all had their own fears, and their own joys. The picture of death and happiness were so well described that I could see everything as if it was right in front of me.

You will be biting your fingernails right off at each new turn in the plot, and each new cliffhanger. The story had exquisite quality, and it was a pleasure to read. I would recommend this book for people ages thirteen and up.

Five out of five stars for this novel by far. This novel was awesome, and defiantly lived up to the excellence of the past two books in the series.
