Artifacts. Miseries. Mysteries . . .

From the moment Horace F. Andrews sees the sign from the bus--a sign with his own name on it--everything changes. The sighting leads him underground to the House of Answers, a hidden warehouse brimming with peculiar devices. But there he finds only questions. What is this curious place? Who are the strange, secretive people who entrust him with a rare and immensely powerful gift? And what is he to do with it?

As he works to master his newfound abilities, Horace quickly discovers that nothing is ordinary anymore. From the sinister thin man lurking around every corner to his encounters with Chloe--a girl who has an astonishing talent of her own--Horace follows a path that puts him in the middle of a centuries-old conflict between two mysterious factions.

Horace's journey leads him and Chloe deep into a place where every decision they make could have disastrous consequences. Most important, it links Horace to the Box of Promises and a future he never saw coming.

With an action-packed blend of fantasy and science fiction, Ted Sanders creates a world where everything is more than it seems and where friendship and loyalty have the greatest power of all.

    The Keepers: The Box and the Dragonfly is about a boy named Horace and his adventures. One day while riding a bus, Horace discovers a sign that says Horace F. Andrews, his name. Then, he goes looking for the sign. The sign does not say Horace F. Andrews, but it says House of answers. In the house besides the sign, Horace finds a strange box. Horace can use the box to see the future. Horace meets a girl named Chloe who has a dragonfly pendent that allows her to pass through objects. Horace and Chloe meet a secret organization called the Wardens who want to protect these devices, called Tanu, from a race called the Riven. I recommend this book to people who like fantasy books.

      This book is about a boy named Horace. He is given a special box that has special powers; how he meets others that have been given special powers. I really liked this book because it is full of mystery, surprise and full of action. Great book for boys and girls.
