Soulkeepers: A Fantasy Adventure
(Bright Spirits Book 1)
On the paradise island of Huclan where souls are stolen at birth, two children and their primate friend stand ready to fight for the freedom of emotion.
The Brotherhood performs a magical rite to capture every newborn baby’s soul, making them placid, compliant, and incapable of dissent or violence.
However, sometimes the ritual goes wrong, turning the recipient into a mindless shell. Rarer still, it doesn’t work at all, leaving the child free to live as they choose.
Garen is one such child, living a carefree life. Garen, his father, and Sciel, an intelligent primate companion, live in a small village, acting like the other inhabitants when the soldiers make their regular patrols.
Kymar, on the other hand, leads a different story. When her mother dies in a trap set by the soldiers, Kymar vows to destroy the system of soul-stealers.
Fate brings the trio together as they set off for the Brotherhood’s stronghold to free the captured souls and allow their world another chance at life.
