This book was really good. I would like to thank David for giving me a copy for a review. This book is really fabulous.

I really like the characters.

Nathaniel is okay and nice. He tried to save Orah from being teach about the darkness after what happen to Thomas.

Orah is very smart and figure out the clues about the keep. She's a weaver and really care about Nathaniel and Thomas her best friends.

Thomas was the first one out of his friends taken for teaching and came back changed. But follow Nathaniel and Orah in their journey.


". . . with olive skin and delicate but unremarkable features, more than made up by flaring dark eyes."

". . . Temple City, the light's eternal fortress against the darkness."

"His lips curled upward into his hollow cheeks, until his teeth showed and his face displayed a raely-used, but perfectly genuine smile."

"Come forward, Thomas Bradford of Little Pond."

". . . three days to Temple City and three days back. . . "

"They wanted him to betray his friends."

". . . the vicar with their rules and ceremonies."

". . . he's no longer our Thomas"

"His skin was pale, his cheeks so hollwed that his face showed no sentiment. . . "

". . . we hate the vicars as well."

"Orah has been taken."

"I'd be a seeker if I could."

"The scroll of the first keeper. The first clue in the chain."

"We are now three seekers."

". . . the gruff sound of men cursing and laughing."

"Our second keeper, if her xists, is a spinner."

"The keepers were real."


"I may be a vicar, but I'm a keeper first."

"The seekers were the bridge to a new world."

"Lizbeth was the final keeper."

". . . elbowed him in the ribs so hard the air in his lungs was expelled with a grunt."

". . . grabbed a handful of dirt and flung it at the trees."

This is all the quotes that I found that were interesting.

That's all for this review.
