An open book with rays and orbs of light shooting from the pages

Welcome to the first of two Book Spotlights for Sunbury Press authors during the month of May. Today, I’m welcoming Natalie Pinter with her novel The Fragile Keepers. As always, I hope you’ll make her feel welcome. This sounds like a complex and entertaining read. If you’re a fan of fairy tales and/or dark fantasy, I think you’re going to love this one!

Book Description:

When a pair of siblings discover a mythical creature, she grants them both sublime gifts and horrific curses.

Following a lightning storm, Andre and her brother Ben discover a winged girl cowering in their backyard shed. The millennials are thrilled by the appearance of a mythical being, but they are wary too, particularly when she warns them that a dangerous monster has followed her from “Elsewhere.”

The girl, (Shae) is desperate to return to a world she can now only scarcely recall. Exquisite and beguiling, Shae evokes a protectiveness on their part—especially when she grants them gifts of extraordinary new talent. Andre and Ben want to help her however they can.

But the siblings soon find out that these gifts carry ghastly side effects. Andre is enchanted by prophetic dreams, but they wither her grip on reality; Ben creates sublime music, but his health deteriorates. And then, to their horror, they discover that Shae must complete a terrible task before she can return home and that everyone they know and love is in danger. Andre and Ben must now figure out how to thwart a being they’ve grown to care for.

What they don’t realize is that Shae is changing—she’s beginning to develop a conscience, and an affinity for her human hosts. And as her time runs out, she must make a terrible choice before all their lives spiral into a grisly climax of cruel irony and heartbreaking sacrifice.

  1. I’m playing catch-up today after our first real trip since Covid, Mae. I’m putting this on my “maybe list” for now. It sounds exactly like the kind of book that I’d enjoy, but I am so far behind with my reviews that I’m going to make a concerted effort to start getting caught up before I add others to the neverending Kindle.

    • Pete, I had no idea you had been down with COVID. I’m so sorry, but so glad you are back on the mend. I’ve had family members and friends who were struck with this awful virus.
      I’m sure Natalie will be glad to hear her book has hit your potential read list.
      And I understand. I know how hard it is playing catch-up under normal circumstances, but can’t imagine after COVID. Thank you for visiting. Sending you lots of healing energy!

      • Oops! I didn’t mean to make it sound like I had experienced Covid. It was meant to be a comment on trying to get caught up with blogging after traveling. My wife and I have both been lucky. It was just this was our first travels since the pandemic began.
