The kids (6yo and 8yo) have been listening to this series in the car. All three of us agree, Nell rocks and JFK (the author) is the real wizard. In addition to taking the kids and I on a great adventure, this series has prompted the kids to evaluate long held traditions (in the book) that are called into question in the series. Things like gender inequality, socio-inequality, racial and ethnic bias/prejudice and cultural ignorance are all woven through the story with the main characters question ...more

I love this book so much I could go as wild as a buffalo! I love this book way more then I like all my other ones.

In this story lord Tammon puts Nell and Owen into jail. They are confused because usually lord Tammon is really nice but right now he is sort of mean to them.
To find out if lord Tammon is bad to them in the whole story you can just read the book.

At the palce of light Nell's little dragon Minna is really hurt and Nell is so worried that she might die. Nell's other dragon Beauty is hu

Nell is a princess who longs to be the imperial wizard and seems to have everything it takes...accept for the fact that she's a girl and doesn't carry "the mark". She's even completed the impossible quest (book 1) that no one else has ever managed to finish. So just when they are about to give in and have the King lay his mantle upon her, giving her permission to pursue the apprenticeship, of course they'd find out she has a twin brother! When they discover he's been kidnapped Nell takes it upon ...more

It's difficult to decide how to rate this book, but I did like the first one more—maybe because it had more magic in it. I know that's a simple reason, but magic adds color to a book, and that's something I value highly (maybe it has something to do with being colorblind)—probably because it's easier to have some expression on my face at the end of the day than if I had read something mundane or colorless. It's not that I don't appreciate the normal things—it's just that I'm particularly fond of ...more

Book 2 of The Keepers series. Princess Nell of Eldearth has completed the quest to become the next apprentice to the Imperial Wizard, but she's still a girl and she has to convince her father that she's worthy. Just about as that is to happen, King Einar finds out he has a long-hidden son, Nell's twin, and that changes everything. The boy disappears, the evil Lord Graieconn's forces attack the king's army, and Nell goes to the rescue. Along the way she meets imps, flying humanoids, and not-quite ...more

Eleven-year-old Nell has done the unthinkable -- she has completed the quest to meet the Imperial Wizard, something no girl in her land of Eldearth has ever accomplished. Now, she may be able to become the next Imperial Wizard. But there is still much standing in her way. She has always thought that she was the only child and heir of her father, the King of Xandria, one of the kingdoms of Eldearth. But she learns she has a twin brother, Owen, who was hidden away at birth. Now her father refuses ...more

The narration was very good. The descriptions of the places in the story were very vivid. The books are fairly short. I have listened to two out of three of the books, and the library doesn't have the third book.
