The Keeper of Portals
Martin and his mother are mourning the death of Martin's father and they move inot a gigantic stately home.
Within this stately home they have an encounter with a being who is described as the Keeper of Portals.
He claims that he is the keeper of every portal throughout the entire world. With the exception of one portal, a doorway at the end of Martin's bedroom. A doorway that has been sealed shut for 400 years.
However, when Martin awakes on one subsequent morning he discovers that the door has mysteriously become open and that the Keeper of Portals has vanished.
Marin decides that he will walk through the doorway and immediately meets up with Isabel who is a maid of the house, 400 years ago in the past!
The discover that everything on earth is under the control of a keeper.
They find two keepers who were imprisoned and they find that they now have the ability to travel between different doorways and change their time.
They inadvertently become involved in a fight between two very powerful adversaries, the Keeper of Questions and the master of the house.
But when things from the 21st century begin to intrude into the 17th century, they realise that something has gone wrong with time. And they must confront the Keeper of Questions. Can they defy the Keeper of Questions? Or, like everyone else, will they become prey to his control?
The book takes the reader headfirst into an exciting fantasy world that continues at a breakneck pace right through to the stunning conclusion.
It is published by Matador at £7.99 and although it is aimed at teenage fantasy fans, I feel it is probably going to be a bit of a hit with adults, too.
