The Keeper of Songs: A Short Story

Rated 5.00/5 based on 3 reviews
Short Story. In this tale, an entire nation has chosen to live under the wickedness of the Curse of Blood in return for peace and security, not realizing how it corrupts them to do so. But one man sees, and it's up to him and his son to break the Curse and save their people, at great personal cost to them both. A beautiful story of sacrifice and redemption.

About William Woodall

I've been writing stories almost since I was able to pick up a jumbo crayon and put words on paper. I love what I do and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share these tales with my readers.

My work is typically classified as young adult literature, if only because the stories are clean and most of the characters are young. There's more to it than that, though.

Every book I've ever personally loved has been what I'd call ageless. That is, it contains something that can touch the heart of a child while he's still too young and raw to appreciate subtlety, but there's also something in it that he can still feed on when he's old and gray, although perhaps not the same things. It's my aspiration to write stories like that.

In fact, the majority of my readers are adults who want to read something that will uplift them and make them feel glad to be alive that day. We all need beautiful stories, and without them we suffer.

Review by: Jeffrey Allen Davis on June 26, 2015 :
I was instantly drawn in to this story. The author wrote it like a fairy tale and skillfully wove the plot points together as the story unfolded. A touching story of sacrifice and redemption with a Christ-like figure.

I continued to think that I had read this same plot in another novel on smashwords??

This is a very well written fantasy story that is great for 10-14 yr olds, although older youth and adults will enjoy it just as much.It reminded me alot of reading The Chronicles of Narnia. Lying deep with in the lines one can see how this would and can relate to the Gospel.
