SAINT PAUL, MN, May 31, 2017—Flux, an imprint of North Star Editions, Inc. (NSE) is excited to announce the January 30, 2018 release of Keeper by debut author Kim Chance. Keeper is a young adult paranormal/urban fantasy novel centered on bookish teenager Lainey Styles. Preoccupied with school work and the SATs, Lainey’s life changes dramatically when she discovers that she’s a witch with a very important mission.

More about Keeper:
When a 200-year-old witch attacks her, sixteen-year-old bookworm Lainey Styles is determined to find a logical explanation. Even with the impossible staring her in the face, Lainey refuses to believe it—until she finds a photograph linking the witch to her dead mother.

Lainey consults a psychic and discovers that she, like her mother, is a Keeper: a witch with the exclusive ability to unlock and wield the Grimoire, a dangerous but powerful spell book. But there’s a problem. The Grimoire was stolen by a malevolent warlock who is desperate for a spell locked inside it—a spell that would allow him to siphon away the world’s magic.

With the help of her comic-book-loving best friend and a mysterious but admittedly handsome street fighter, Lainey must leave her studious life behind to prepare for the biggest test of all:  stealing back the book.
