Her job is to keep their secrets safe.
A secluded Retreat Center full of preternatural clientele. A talking crow who thinks she knows everything. A new boy in town asking a lot of nosy questions. Sound like a lot to handle? Not for fifteen-year-old Macy Steward, who lives at the Center and helps her parents run the highly unusual retreats.
For Macy, this is simply normal routine. And it’s all going exactly as expected, that is until the guests become dangerously unpredictable, the talking crow goes suspiciously missing, and the new boy turns out to be so much more than he first appeared.
“Here comes trouble.” That’s the last thing the crow says before disappearing. Even though she doesn’t scare easily, Macy has to admit the crow was right. Because soon enough, she finds herself trying to keep a lot more things safe than just secrets...
THE SAFEKEEPER'S RULEBOOK
"Welcome to the Greenmont Grith Business Center. Watch out for crossing aliens."
Safekeeper Macy Steward is hosting a perimeter guard competition. An intergalactic perimeter guard competition, in preparation for the grand re-opening of Greenmont Grith as a Business Center. She also happens to be babysitting the Exchange Guides’ newborn, as well as dealing with the suspicious visitors who’ve arrived unexpectedly in the middle of the night. Most alarming of all, Macy has discovered a dead body. Inside her Center. She has only three days to solve the mysterious murder before the Orbit Council decides that Macy is such a terrible Safekeeper, Greenmont Grith’s doors should be closed for good.
At least the Center has been put on lockdown until the perimeter guard competition is over. Nobody, including Macy, is able to leave the Center grounds, a binding rule put in place by the Orbit Council. But, wait, doesn’t that mean the murderer is trapped along with all the other guests? Oh, yes, indeed. That’s exactly what it means.
Safekeeper Macy Steward is having trouble with one of her perimeter guards. Which one? You guessed it: Clio.
What's Clio's problem, anyway? Read The Safekeeper's Guard and you just might find out.
