The 58th Keeper- R.G. Bullet


The 58th Keeper
R.G. Bullet

Archibald Bass, Archy for short is an orphan boy schooling in a boarding school in London. His friend Vincent convinces Archy's foster mom to let Archy go on vacation with Vincent's family, a dream come true for poor Archy. While in Turkey Archy is given a rug by a man named Alturus who is on the run from a group of people called the Kurul. Archy, totally unaware takes the rug, beginning his reign at the 58th Keeper.. if the SOTS will accept him.
The 58th Keeper of what? Of the magic rug that goes back to the time of Noah and the Ark. The SOTS are the official authority and Archy being a young boy may not be talented enough to be the Keeper.
This action packed novel has the typical boarding school headmaster who is heavy fisted and mean. The foster mom who is out for herself. The great friends as sidekicks. And a fun, smart boy Archy who is determined to make something of himself.
I typically skim book like this to get the gist of whether I think it is good for my children or not. With R.G.'s book, I read the entire book! It was very interesting and detailed. I loved the descriptions of the places Archy went and the SOTS headquarters. RG creates dynamic characters who grow and change and you are able to cheer for them throughout the story.
Fantastic time travel, treasure hunting, adventurous story for all ages!!
5 stars!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
