Prey, you should’ve been ready.
Whimsy meets wicked in this dark fairy tale: The Queen’s Keeper by JL Vampa.
What if I told you that everything you knew about your life was a lie and that you’re being hunted?
What if I told you that you were prey?
This is the reality for Luvenia Rousseau. Amidst the struggle to survive in a famished, war-torn country and the fight against the phantoms of her past, her family is brutally ripped apart by a tyrant queen’s venomous army. Just when all hope seems lost, she stumbles upon an enchanted realm while the queen hunts for the one who got away.
"If, like me, fantasy is one of your genres of choice, you'll be delighted by this novel. Highly magical, incredibly creative, and with a couple of deep messages that are particularly important in today's sometimes callous world: be kind to yourself--there is worth and purpose for every individual, and that we choose every day to either follow a path that is light, or to submit to the dark.The best compliment I can give a book is that I didn't want to put it down--and that is definitely true of this one. I wanted to know what happened to its main character. I spent time in lines and driving in the car wondering who the mysterious Liberator might be. I occupied my moments not reading (or working, toddler wrangling, sleeping and other necessary endeavors) thinking about the plot and what might come next."
"I couldn’t put the book down... She has done a beautiful job setting up an intricate and layered story line with characters from the fantasy genre that had me rooting for them, and left me with wanting to know more about their past and what would happen in their future (book 2 soon please!) True to the fantasy genre, this was a book that allowed me to escape to a world of the unknown.I am proud to say I have one of the first copies printed and will read and reread this story, excited for her during the unknown times of being a new author.If you like fantasy, or supporting new authors, buy The Queens Keeper!"
"I was hooked from the first page. I literally could not put it down. That doesn’t happen to me very often. The storyline is very compelling and I am anxiously waiting the next book!"
"I read a lot of fantasy books, so I figured I’d like this one - it sounded interesting enough, so I purchased it for a long plane trip. I ended up being so into it that I barely noticed the hours pass! I particularly loved Luvenia’s character development because she frustrated me often. Her growth over the course of the book was refreshingly normal (she didn’t all of a sudden become this perfect, strong, unwavering heroine) and I felt personally invested in her story. The ending was shocking, and I am so excited to read what happens next!"
