Last week I shared with you what I was reading this monthKeeper of the Books by Asher Elliot was top of that list. I fully admit to loving young adult novels. Stories that transport me to another time and place are my favorite way of relaxing. 

There are some I can spend a few weeks to a month trying to get through, and there are some that pull me in so much, that I can’t put the book down. Keeper of the Books was one of the latter. Once I picked it up the story wouldn’t leave me. I turned into a kid again reading late into the night hoping that Mark wouldn’t be bothered by the light from my phone. 

There were a couple parts of this book that stuck out to me the most. The first I’ll just quote for you – “Every man is capable of crime“. I thought that was so intriguing a thought. Am I capable of crime? Perhaps under the right circumstances, I would be. Would you?

So what is it all about? 

Keeper of the Books Summary

Nathaniel Cole never thought things would end this way. This was supposed to be his last job as an outlaw. Now, he finds himself cornered by the most skilled bounty hunter in the West, Levi Thompson. Nate looks down at the mysterious book in his hands. The words scroll across the pages as if penned by some invisible author. It’s a magical book—a portal to another world. He knows he doesn’t have a choice. If he stays, he dies. When he finally takes the plunge, Nate finds himself in the land of Galamore—a place filled with outlaws worse than he, and dangers at every turn. But when he learns the bounty hunter has followed him there, Nate knows he either has to face Levi, or be the first to find his way back home. With the law on his trail, and an unfamiliar world before him, Nate must seek the help of wary strangers. On his journey through the mysterious land of Galamore, Nate discovers that getting back home won’t be so easy, and that he might be stuck in Galamore for a long time. Keeper of the Books blends a story of magical fantasy with the classic style of the Old West, creating a world that is both unique and full of adventure.
