 Lucy Barnes led an unremarkable life…

She lived with her two brothers and her father in the cozy, snowy little town of Algid under the oppressive jurisdiction of a future government called the Commune.

…until her world was turned upside down.

As the heir to a magical map that whisks her away to a world known as Praxis, Lucy finds herself suddenly expected to learn to use the map’s power to help save Praxis from the stirrings of a dark force. But natural disasters begin to occur more and more frequently, and an undercurrent of fear is undeniable in Praxis.

Now an entire realm is relying on her.

Lucy must push herself to her limits and learn to harness the power of her  newfound gifts before the Wardens annihilate the creatures of Praxis. As the Mapkeeper, her abilities are the only power strong enough to save them from destruction. Barely understanding the difference between a gnome and a goblin, she finds herself pummeled into a vortex of mysteries and dangers alongside newfound friends in Praxis. But enemies are all around  her, sometimes even disguised as friends... with time running out, who can she trust?   (Katie Cash, Email Address:, teacher)
