A Dark Shadow hangs over Ancient Oldtown: A Forbidden Blood Magic Scroll
Trouble is brewing in the ancient city of Oldtown. A malevolent scroll filled with forbidden blood magic has surfaced, threatening to unleash chaos.
An unpaid debt forces Lachlan Quinn to leave his carefully ordered life behind. He soon finds himself entangled in a local civil war, threatened by an old enemy thirsting for revenge and watching out for an impetuous hex witch and her crew.
With the odds stacked against him, Lachlan must rely on the unlikeliest of allies: an orphaned goblin, a beautiful assassin and a motley gang of young cutpurses who call Oldtown home. Together, they embark on a perilous quest to locate the sinister scroll before its wielder uses it and plunges Oldtown into chaos.
Join Lachlan Quinn as he races against time, battling daemons and hexes in a quest to save Oldtown. Will he succeed, or will the shadows of his past finally consume him?
intricate story lines and relatable characters
Reviewed it on December 7, 2023Thoroughly enjoyable. I love the mixing of elements of faerie and, hell, not quite sure what. Somehow your characters are irredeemable hard and brutal yet sympathetic. wonderful
A great tale
Reviewed it on December 6, 2023Another great story . Easy to loose hours in my day reading. Looking forward to seeing the next tale in the series. 👍👍👍
Reviewed it on December 3, 2023Thank you for another great read and I'm looking forward to the next book.
Reviewed it on December 3, 2023Usually a second book is a let-down, but "Keeper and the Dragons" expands the amalgam of Fantasy world and our reality at a level of Tolkien's world-building, at the same time advancing the character development of the protagonists. Can't wait for the Third book.
Reviewed it on November 27, 2023Love this story looking forward to the next book and seeing what is instore for our flawed hero.
Solid second book
Reviewed it on November 21, 2023I really enjoyed the first book. The second book takes what works and moves the needle forward on the story. Waiting for the 3rd!
Another great read in the Keeper narrative.
Reviewed it on November 17, 2023Very much enjoyed this sequel. The juxtaposition of magical worlds with modern day society (Seattle and WA in this case) is much fun. The character development was quite good IMHO.

Excellent follow-up to the first book
Reviewed it on November 16, 2023The story flowed seamlessly from the first book and was well worth the wait! The detail rich story was entrancing; kind of wish it had been a lot longer.

More rollicking sword and sorcery
Reviewed it on November 15, 2023Another good read.
Couldn't put it down.
Reviewed it on November 15, 2023Great read. Many twists and turns and plenty of mysteries to puzzle out. Will probably read it over a few times for pure pleasure.
Fascinating Story and Worldbuilding
Reviewed it on November 15, 2023Peter's books remind me of reading Stephen King's early novels as a youth. I read this book in one sitting. I could not put it down. The author does an admirable job teasing a rich world, below the surface of what we are allowed see, in the best traditions of storytelling. The challenge is maintaining that satisfaction as more is revealed. About the worst thing I can say is the end of the book felt a little rushed. I look forward to purchasing Book III.
Good but short
Reviewed it on November 28, 2023It was good but for the price For almost 10$ USD I expected more than a half story
