Mixing science, magic, and metaphysics, The Keepers follows Horace Andrews and his friends, who gain unique powers after discovering and bonding to a variety of mysterious artifacts called Tan’ji. In Book 1, The Box and the Dragonfly, Horace finds a box that opens surprising new doors and grants him unimagined abilities. Soon after, he joins forces with Chloe, another young Keeper, and together the two of them are drawn into a secret, centuries-old conflict that connects to both the roots and fate of humankind.

Stay tuned here for more news, and be on the look out for The Keepers when it launches in March 2015 from HarperCollins Children’s Books (US) and Hot Key Books (UK).
