She doesn't really know who she is or what she wants...
Corinna is a Folk Keeper. Her job is to keep the mysterious Folk who live beneath the ground at bay. But Corinna has a secret that even she doesn't fully comprehend, until she agrees to serve as Folk Keeper at Marblehaugh Park, a wealthy family's seaside manor. There her hidden powers burst into full force, and Corinna's life changes forever..
I intsantly loved the cover to The Folk Keeper. It was one of the main reasons I picked it up. It's so very different to other covers of YA books. It has somthing magical to it. And do you know what? The Folk Keeper it self was truly magical.
Corinnna Stonewell. Gotta love her name! She's fifteen years old and an orphan. Although, she remains strong and is one hell of a charcter. However, there's something about her that's lost. Corinna has many quaestions. And so obiously, she wants some answers.
I loved how the Folk Kepper was written. The writing style was not modern but very unique and in a good way too. It was nice reading a book that's very different to many.
I really liked seeing how everything unraveled, how the story progressed and came to an end. I enjoyed the action, suspence oh and Finian! He's so nice :L ...A great tale with a great finish!
