The 58th Keeper by R.G. Bullet: Book Spotlight & Review

I am excited to share this book with you today, it is one that I really enjoyed and because I liked it so much I wanted to share it with everyone! Big thanks to Pump Up Your Book for allowing me to share in this tour!

About the Book:

The 58th Keeper is the story of a boy called Archy Bass, who stumbles upon a mysterious and powerful relic. The moment he touches it, two warring forces race to find his whereabouts. One side thinks he’s simply too young and too inexperienced to keep it, and the other just want him dead. The 58th Keeper is a roaring trip that takes the reader on the most wonderful and hair-raising scenes imaginable. R. G. Bullet pulls out all stops in his Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00041] debut novel to deliver an incredible journey with unforgettable characters. This book will resonate with you for ages past the last line.

Read the Reviews:

    “Tension and suspense. Magic and mayhem. Mystical and wonderfully creative. Impressive and inventive. This is a  series kids will be adding to their list of must reads!“

My Thoughts:

I am a big cover person and I LOVED THIS COVER!  I think it is great and will really attract readers to it.

What a huge adventure, that is how I would describe this book!  Full of twists and turns, this is a book that I can see kids really getting into and a series that they would really follow.

I loved how the main character, Archy Bass, developed throughout the novel.  He is a great character and has a lot of the qualities that I look for when I read a book.  I can see kids really identifying with him and enjoying his situation and adventures.

I really did enjoy the setting too, which is something that really is key for me in a book.  Ending up in Turkey on an archaeological dig is quite unusual for kids but the author does a fantastic job tying it all in!

I handed this novel to a student of mine and am anxiously awaiting his reviews - which I will post to the blog when I have it.
