After just missing getting Stowe back from the City, Roan sets out to find her again, because she bypassed the City’s security system by hiding in the back of an ice cream truck. It has been two years now since they have been together, and that was at Longlight, before they were attacked by the brothers.  Now, Roan must find his sister and enlist her help in the terrible war against the City, both on earth and in the dream field. Will Roan be able to find his sister and defeat the City?

Dennis Foon wrote The Keeper’s Shadow. Living with his family in Vancouver, BC, Foon has written four other books. They are: Double Or Nothing, Skud, and the first two books in the Longlight Legacy, which are The Dirt Eaters and Freewalker.  As well as writing fascinating books, Foon has also put together over 20 stage plays that have earned him the British Theatre Award, two Chalmers awards, as well as the International Arts for Young Audiences Award.

I would recommend this book for anyone who likes the kind of books that involve multiple worlds or interesting descriptions. I would not recommend this book for anyone who isn’t a very good reader because of both the words in this book and the thickness. Before anyone reads this however, it would be a very god idea to read the first two books in this series, The Dirt Eaters and Freewalker, just to get a good grasp of the storyline, although Dennis Foon has a really informative section in the beginning of the book that would tell you all about the storyline of the first and second books.

This reviewer gives The Keeper’s Shadow 5 fascinating stars.
