The fairytales have escaped, and seventeen-year-old Ayako Minase is to blame. Ayako has never wondered what would happen if Snow White was never kissed. She’s never thought about the huntsman failing to save Little Red Riding hood. But when Ayako comes across a magical book what ifs are all that is left.
Ayako has always wanted one thing: to be left alone. A concept alien to, Darryl, her mom’s soon to be fiancé. While he might bring happiness to her mom, Ayako’s done fine without a dad for thirteen years. Her life is boring, ordinary and perfect. But few things stay perfect forever, and Ayako’s time is up.
As magical books often do, once opened, it unleashes ancient magic into the world. And when blame falls on Ayako, she can’t help but wonder how she should have known that magical books were even a thing? Or That Mother Goose was real, let alone the owner?
By opening the book Ayako’s become a “keeper”, those tasked with protecting fairytales from changing their plots. It’s up to her to bind these stories before the morals they teach change. Anyone who finds out will have their memories erased. Keeping her role a secret would be easy if it weren’t for the constant cast of characters that begin to possess those around her. From the three Goldilocks bears to the Knights of the Round Table, Ayako’s life is thrown into chaos.
The good news? Ayako is determined to get her life back. The bad? Darryl’s found out, and he will keep Ayako safe. Now Ayako must decide if her mother’s happiness is worth the world’s safety.
Completed at 98,000 words, Keepers, is a young adult urban fantasy novel that will resonate with readers who enjoy reimaginings and retellings of classic fairy tales.
