More About the Author

Morgan Keyes grew up in California, Texas, Georgia, and Minnesota, accompanied by parents, a brother, a dog, and a cat. Also, there were books. Lots and lots of books.

Morgan started to keep a journal for a second-grade English class and never really stopped. Journal entries turned into short stories, and short stories turned into novels. In between, there were an awful lot of haikus and cinquains.

Morgan now lives near Washington, D.C. In between trips to the Natural History Museum and the National Gallery of Art, she reads, travels, reads, writes, reads, cooks, reads, wrestles with cats, and reads. Because there are still books. Lots and lots of books.

Luck has them locate a group of Darkers but something about them just doesn't seem right to Keara.

I couldn't put the book down, wondering what would happen next.

Format: Hardcover
I was captivated by Morgan Keyes' original 2012 "Darkbeast" novel, and was very eager to read the follow-up, "Darkbeast Rebellion". It was all I'd hoped for.

If you haven't read "Darkbeast" yet, you certainly must. This will introduce you to the three key human characters in "Rebellion". There's Keara of Silver Hollow, the story's narrator, the twelve-year-old who flouts convention and runs away from her home village. There's Goran Trader, another twelve-year-old, as close to Keara as a brother. And there's Taggart Trader, Goran's maternal grandfather, like an adoptive father to Keara.

The three have one crucial thing in common: They have spared their darkbeasts, animal companions who have been mind-linked to them since the age of twelve days. According to the religious laws of the land of Duodecia, they should have sacrificed their animal friends on their twelfth birthday as a rite of passage to adulthood -- but, out of friendship and love, they could not bring themselves to do it.

(Keara's companion, a magnificent black raven named Caw, with an insatiable, "ravenous" appetite, is the fourth major protagonist, an important character in his own right.)

At the start of "Darkbeast Rebellion", the three humans and their companions are fleeing from the Inquisition in bitter cold, winter weather. Keara is so numb she is ready to lie down and die, while Taggart is developing a dangerous cough -- he is getting a bit too old for this kind of punishment. Goran, to encourage Keara, gives her a precious gift, a bracelet which once belonged to his mother. This plays an important role throughout the rest of the story.

Ridiculously overpriced but if getting screwed by the publisher is the only way I can get my daughter to read, then I best get the lube ready.

Format: Hardcover
This is a funny and well-written tale of how a girl travels through life learning that she can always rely on her pet. In her life lessons, she also learns that not everyone can be trusted. Kearati finds that growing up is more difficult than she anticipated and she doesn't want to give up her only friend. The people who seem disengaged from society she finds are more like her than she expected. This heart-wrenching story will make you want to read the entire book from cover to cover and continue onto the next one in the series.
