Mallon the Undying’s reign of terror ended eight years ago when he entered the elven wood and never returned. The country of Queensland has shakily returned to normal, and the Keepers who helped defend her have returned to their own pursuits as historians, storytellers, and studiers of magic. But Mallon’s moniker was truer than anyone knew. His followers still work to keep his ruthless ideas alive by abducting powerful children, sowing discord among the people, and nibbling away at Queensland’s borders. Unfortunately, the Keepers left between Queensland and destruction are: -Alaric, who betrayed everything he believed to save his wife — and still failed. -Will, a storyteller who’s convinced his weak magic makes him useless. -And Sini, a former slave girl with unimagined power but no way to wield it. With the help of unsettling elves, gruff dwarves, sentient stones, and magical swords, Alaric, Will, and Sini will have to find a way to overcome their own weaknesses and face the growing shadows.

    “I am on the side of truth and right and goodness.” “Everything is light. Everything that lives glows with it.It is the source of all vitae, life.” There’s a layer of complexity to the story line that not only keeps readers guessing, but lends to a closer examination of the emotional and spiritual stakes in life choices. It’s about how far you might push yourself, and how much of your own humanity you might have to sacrifice to save those you love. This story is more like people in real life than “I am on the side of truth and right and goodness.” “Everything is light. Everything that lives glows with it.It is the source of all vitae, life.” There’s a layer of complexity to the story line that not only keeps readers guessing, but lends to a closer examination of the emotional and spiritual stakes in life choices. It’s about how far you might push yourself, and how much of your own humanity you might have to sacrifice to save those you love. This story is more like people in real life than typical fictional characters. As the story comes to it’s conclusion, we find ourselves questioning our earlier judgements. Are the good guys really that good? Are the bad guys really that bad? Or is everyone really more alike than different, separated only by matters of degree, on the same scale of good versus bad. I found myself wanting to slow down, almost saddened by the impending end. This is where everything comes to its final, spectacular conslusion. I couldn’t conciliate sleep after finishing the book! It left me with a warm feeling, albeit the loss and sacrifices. It has been an overwhelming experience of hope, resilience, determination, faith in oneself to overcome the fears residing deep within. A thoughtful, captivating and fascinating read! My congratulations to JA Andrews for a magnificent trilogy!

But what is a book if it does not pull on the heart strings eh? Book 2 is just as good. Follow the Keeper Will, as he searches for his long-lost sister Ilisa. A Ranger Sora who doesn’t know if she should trust Will. A slave girl Rass who has an unhealthy obsession with Grass, but is there more to her what it seems? We see old friends from the first book, too, I couldn’t put it down, although a slow start once the pace picked up a bit I was enthralled with the book. I almost don’t want to read book three because it will end…. Book three, Sini who we met in book two, becomes a keeper though she feels as though she does not belong. I absolutely love sin, I love her unusual gift. She breathes life in to the old keepers and hope to a better future, I didn’t just read it, I felt it, saw it, smelt it, everything was written as if I was standing next to Sin. I cried, I laughed, my only regret is finishing this book, I didn’t want it to end. I urge anyone who hasn’t read it yet to read it you will not regret it.

    This series is quite readable and has a whimsical quality to it which I enjoyed. The writer is talented and managed to transport me well to the world. Some points bother me though, primarily to do with pacing: 1. The magic system is inconsistent and the costs of doing magic aren't high enough considering the abundance. 2. Things move too quickly: the big reveal in book one, the resolution of the second and third book and so on. 3. People have far too rapid changes of heart. 4. There isn't enough This series is quite readable and has a whimsical quality to it which I enjoyed. The writer is talented and managed to transport me well to the world. Some points bother me though, primarily to do with pacing: 1. The magic system is inconsistent and the costs of doing magic aren't high enough considering the abundance. 2. Things move too quickly: the big reveal in book one, the resolution of the second and third book and so on. 3. People have far too rapid changes of heart. 4. There isn't enough sacrifice and impact of loss. The protagonists don't suffer enough agony to make us sympathize with them. All the elements are in the story but they are rushed through. 5. Due to all of these I don't buy Queensland as a country, it feels hollow, more like a stage in a play. The attitude toward the keepers felt consistently off throughout the series. Nonetheless, this author has a lot of potential and if they revise or learn from the mistakes in this series for their next project it could be great. I saw a promo for a series set far before this one and I'll say that it didn't attract me, I dislike prequels unless there is a compelling reason to go back to examine them, and I didn't find one here.

    I would consider myself an old school fantasy lover and spent much of my youth reading Tolkien, McKiernan, McCaffrey, Tad Williams and pretty much anyone else I could get my hands on. Recently I have dove into indie fantasy and let me tell you, JA Andrews is leaps and bounds ahead of the field, her story telling is phenomenal and you can't help but get sucked in and feel fully immersed while reading.

Once you hit that 30% point of each book you can't help but get swept up in the story, you have to pick up the book every free minute you have until you finish it. Getting a little fatigued by all the grimdark books? Looking for something to rekindle that same passion you had as a kid the first time you read about dragons? This is it, this is the story. She will make you laugh, she will make you cheer, she will make you send her messages about how your wife asks what's going on in the story because you are crying into your coffee mug while reading! Her side story (and bonus story) fit in so well with the main trilogy that I have tremendously high hopes for future novels.

    "Wildly entertaining fantasy" First I would like to say that I have already read and reviewed the first two books, A Threat of Shadows and Pursuit of Shadows, both fantastic books. So I will focus this review on Siege of Shadows, book #3. This book was heartpounding, emotional and very satisfying. Good vs Evil is an old theme, however, this storyline is totally unique and awesome! We get to follow Sini, the first female keeper in two hundred years to use Sunfire.

The Book is full of beautiful and rich characters, fantastic world building, magic and dragons. It is fast paced and exciting. A real page turner from beginning to end for me. An epic journey of magic and adventure. I give this book two thumbs up for a perfect fantasy read! The writing is incredible! I give this the highest recommendation possible! A Must Read!.... Thank you miss Andrews for some fantastic storytelling!

    Andrews is crazy. She asked for honest reviews so that's what I'll give. I've always been an avid reader and have read many stand alones and series. A lot of series I have gotten irritated with for different reasons. Some could have been better served in single novel, some could have been a set of two, some a trilogy, and some work as an extended series but are best read in order or the reader will be confused or each will end as a cliffhanger or something.

These books are all great stand alone books, and for somebody who can write these kind of stories there are way too many interesting characters to stop at three books! (And a side story) I guess we can only hope the crazy lady will come to her senses and realize her readers shouldn't be cheated and will continue to chronicle the Keepers

    Really in-depth emotional content. It’s heavy but so entertaining and well written you can’t help but keep reading it. I really got invested in the characters and there were definitely tears and a great urge to know more to the point of being frustrated at distractions. I ADORED Will, the idea of him of being able to remember every story ever read or heard. I’m so envious of him even though he feels like less of a Keeper for other reasons. We follow one Keeper through each book Alaric - Will - Really in-depth emotional content. It’s heavy but so entertaining and well written you can’t help but keep reading it.

We follow one Keeper through each book Alaric - Will - Sini. Will was undoubtedly my favorite to the point that I had trouble getting into Sini’s story afterword. Nevertheless, there is an inevitable epic quest for each of them to tackle as they are struggling with their own personal issues. I feel Andrews works the epic tale well around the fears and challenges in the personal life of the Keeper.

    I absolutely adored these books! I demolished them. I am not always one for a series but as this was only three (usually my limit) I gave it a chance and I'm so glad I did.

    Great box set. Wonderful fantasy read, with that become so real. Each story could be read as a stand alone because the author does a good job of explaining each of the main characters in all the books, and giving a brief explanation of their back story.

    Excellent series There are very few things more satisfying in life than well written books and this is one of them. There are three books with three very different protagonist, their lives, friendships and magic. Each character is unique and well thought of and there is no redundancy. There are almost no loopholes in the stories (or if there are, they’re insignificant). The heroes are people with flaws and villains have redeemable qualities. The writing flows as if someone is telling a story and Excellent series There are very few things more satisfying in life than well written books and this is one of them.

    Great Fantasy 5 stars all the way. Great character development and story telling are crucial to this genre and this is very well done. The world is built beautifully with all the different locations, people's and others as well as differing locations back and forth. The world is undoubtedly large but feels familiar, particularly in Queensland with its Monarchical and Court feel. Great job and look forward to more from this author.

    An amazing trilogy Seriously. Few writers can actually make you truly love a character. This series is fantastic. I am very interested in seeing what else this wonderful author has to offer. Her characters are easily relatable and her ability to write new ideas into old fantasy ideas is very cool. A very good series to read thru. I put this series in the same category as Wheel of Time, and the Sword of Shannara at the very least. Thank you Mrs. Andrews for sharing.

    Great series - Everyone is looking for something In each of these three stories about magical wise people, called the keepers, the main figure is looking for something or someone. Who and what each of them find is the story. All three stories are highly entertaining and the last book nicely wraps it all up, but still leaves room for a fourth in the series, which I’m hoping happens some day.

    I read the entire trilogy before writing this review. I liked the various types of magic and how they were used. The books were well written and the stories compelling. I will be looking forward to more from this author as other stories and adventures of the Keepers comes out. The books were written well enough so I could "see" myself right there with the characters. I could almost feel their pain. Nicely done.

    A stunning journey! I loved the whole series! Each book is a delight! Fast and fun paced! Full of twists and turns that just keep you wanting for more and more! I love how everything evolved and developed! World building, characters and plot are so well weaved into one another that I can only describe this books as an amazing journey! Looking forward to reading more about Douglon and Avina and all of the Keepers.

    Fantastic Fantasy I love these books and the thought the author has put into the world building makes them a joy to read as your transported along. There is a bit of everything with friendship building, flawed heroes, magic and dragons forming the base for the storyline which is well paced and well developed. Some tears appeared along the way but I was most sad to finish this epic bundle as its such an enjoyable read

    Hungry for more I am an avid reader of fantasy fiction. This is the first i have read from ja Andrews but I'm looking forward to more from her. This trilogy moved seamlessly from the original characters and enveloped the stories of all the characters to a flawless end. The writing was captivating and thankfully didn't have distracting grammatical errors of other authors. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good story.

    AAA Trilogy It has been a long time since I have read a fantasy trilogy that consistently kept me engaged and reluctant to set it down even when I Really needed to. There are plenty of plot twists and the characters were interesting. The ending was satisfying yet left me wishing I knew more about this world and the people I had come to love. Thank you for your wonderful book!!

    Thoroughly entertaining I purchased this book at a bargain for $.99. This is a truly wonderful and entertaining trilogy. Every word meant something. I felt like I was more moving with each word. It is hard for me to express how the story snuck up on me and took me on this journey. Take a chance and read and have your own journey.

    Oh so good! If only there could be more stories about all of these Keepers! I need to know what the future holds for Sini, Roan and Madeline. I think this was my favorite book about the Keepers.

    Enter the world of the Keepers I recommend this trilogy to anyone who enjoys reading a good epic fantasy tale. I would like to know more about the keepers.. more about their abilities, about how they are trained in the stronghold, perhaps from the viewpoint of a newly discovered keeper who arrives for training?????

    Captivating compulsive I 've enjoyed your trilogy and though some areas seemed rushed you have said that your going to give them their own stories makes that feel better. Dislikes. The way you kept constantly referring to the keepers by their names every sentence was a little tedious. Especially in the first book. I look forward to hearing more and more good reading. Thank you

    I rarely give 5 stars. However, this is is a trilogy that I intend to read again—in spite of the parts where it made me cry. I hate to cry, but it is a wonderful fantasy tale with soul, and characters I couldn’t help but love. Even most of the baddies were not unredeemable. There was a great ending, too. This all made it an adventure worth reliving.

    Great Story This was a very fun story to read. The hero's are truly trying to do the right thing while struggling with the vulnibilities we all struggle with. If you like fast paced stories with interesting characters who have magical cabilities and great responsibility you should enjoy these stories. I only wish that the story continued so I could still be reading.

    Love this trilogy! I've been reading a lot of fantasy lately, and this is one I've liked so much. Too many fantasy/world building books don't focus enough on making their characters understandable. The characters in this book are interesting, likable, imperfect and a joy to spend time with. Have a good time with them, and I can't wait to read more!
