#Review: THE KEEPER AND THE RUNE STONE by Paige Pendleton



4 of 5 stars

Set in Maine, "The Keeper and the Rune Stone" is a delightful read. I would suggest middle grade through YA for the target group of the book. The story is well-written as we follow the 4 Driscoll children and their discovery of The Realm. Magical creatures and talking animals are only two of things the children discover. 

Ms. Pendleton draws the reader in with her wonderful descriptions, but not all is wonderful within The Realm. Danger and mayhem are stalking the children and evil has been loosed upon the world. The clock is ticking down to set the world right again or the consequences will be dire. Without giving away any spoilers, I was anxiously turning the pages to find out how things turn out. While this is not the usual kind of book I read, I enjoyed it immensely and have no problem recommending it as a wonderful read for both adults and children to enjoy together.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
