Marcus Alexander - Who is Charlie Keeper?

Hello,everybody just a quick post yesterday I was told about a new self published book. Which is getting some good press recently. I have not read a copy only checked out the synopsis which dose sound quiet good. So if there is anyone who as read it please let me know. Here is some information I have found out about the book.

'Who is Charlie Keeper?' is the shockingly fast paced fantasy novel by Marcus Alexander. It tells the tale of Charlie, an iron-willed, twelve year old girl suffering an unjust and unhappy fate.
Forced to flee her home in the gloomy, rain-drenched landscape of London by a bloodthirsty and terrifying new foe, she escapes to the vibrant, parallel land of Bellania with nothing more than her common sense and razor-sharp wits to keep her safe. Bellania, a land of myth, magic and marauding giants with bad attitude and poor anger management.

With the fate of a world resting squarely upon her shoulders Charlie must learn about her destiny in order to defeat Bane, the Stoman Lord.

And even with all the unspeakable betrayals, vicious enemies and terrible odds that are stacked against her, Charlie could probably succeed... ...if only she could learn to keep her big mouth shut and her opinions to herself.

This is a quick review by some one.

Who is Charlie Keeper? is an incredibly fast paced self published book by debut author Marcus Alexander. It's an epic fantasy tale that will have you gripped from page 1. Even though the book is self published you can definitely compare the author to the likes of J K Rowling, Tolkien and Prachett - it really does have that much potential. The lead character is a girl but she must be the coolest lead character of any Book i have ever come across. We think this series is destined to be huge.

Do you mean the Rober Jordan books.
If So book 12 "A Memory of Light" was the last book in the series.

The books by Brandon Sanderson in the Mistborn series are a good read.

Thanks for your comment!
