The Last Protector
By Stephanie Keyes
Publisher: Inkspell Publishing | Release
Date: December 15, 2014
Stewart helped his best friend Kellen St. James save the world from The Scourge
in the Battle of Dublin. But before that? Gabe was just an ordinary guy who
kept having dreams about a little boy with black hair and green eyes—a boy he
hadn’t even met yet.
even weirder? Gabe’s mind kept replaying these images on loop of things he’d
never seen. He heard voices in his head when no one was around. And he actually
blew off hot Valerie Gibbons to chase after the black-haired kid in the park.
What was up with that?
Gabe searches for the truth, fate continually puts him in Kellen’s path, but
will he be able to stop the Children of Danu from stealing Kellen before the
battle begins? What will it take for Gabe to become The Last Protector?
*The Last Protector is a companion
novella--intended to be read after the other books in the series.
Ebook only: $0.99

I made sure no teachers were watching, and then gave her a quick kiss on the
lips. My gut turned to jelly when my mouth brushed against hers.

with the 'rents this afternoon. I'll call you later, okay?" I pushed down
my guilt and smiled, trying to amp up my charm to the super mega-watt Gabe
Val sounded grumpy about it, but the corners of her mouth turned up when she
spoke the word. "Bye." With a quick turn, she ran in the opposite
direction, leaving me alone.
waiting a few beats, I closed my locker with a click. Shouldering my backpack,
I ran out the side door and hopped on to my red 10-speed and started to pedal.

the park, go to the park...I tried to ignore it, but I couldn't. Maybe if I
followed the voice, as freaky as that sounded, it would stop. The thoughts and
dreams would end.
I wanted them to.

About the Author
Stephanie Keyes grew up in Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania and spent years traveling and working as a Corporate Trainer
before she made the decision to pen her first novel. As a teen, her family
always accused her of having an “overactive imagination.” Now, she’s encouraged
to keep her head in the clouds and share her world with readers.
Keyes is the author of the YA
Fantasy series, The Star Child, which currently includes The Star Child, After
Faerie, The Fallen Stars, and The Star Catcher, all from by Inkspell Publishing.
The Fallen Stars was a 2013 semi-finalist in the Kindle Book Awards. The Star
Child has topped the Amazon best-seller list several times since its 2012
release. Steph writes YA novels because she’s a hopeless romantic who lives to
believe that Magick truly does exist. She is hard at work on a new YA novel.
