“The world building is superb, the writing is not overly simplistic . . . , the pace is never slow and not so fast as to feel rushed. . . . Dwarfs, magical assassins, light-wielding winged people, talking kick-a$$ animals, evil magical princes, and more.” —Amazon reviewer

Scarlet Hopewell keeps dreaming about a magical world, a world where winged creatures sculpt with light, where dogs talk, and where Scarlet is the guest of honor in an enchanted castle under the roots of a mighty oak tree.

One day her father brings home a stray puppy with eerie blue eyes. Dakota is fun and loving and smart—maybe too smart. And he's growing a lot too big. News shows start to take an interest, and the Hopewells' lives keep getting a little stranger.

As the beginning of the school year approaches, ominous storms have everyone on edge, and Scarlet’s dream world is becoming darker and more vivid.

When the front door is blown off its hinges one night by three beautiful, sinister, silver-voiced men, Dakota leads the Hopewells in their escape—right into the world of Scarlet’s dreams.

Scarlet and the Keepers of Light, the first in a five-book epic fantasy series, has enough complexity and character to entertain an adult but is the kind of classic tale that could be read to a child. It's a story about the power of the word, and the adventure of finding the magic within.
