Garrett Robinson was born in Los Angeles, California. Throughout his childhood and into adulthood, he was encouraged to learn by his parents, who not only ensured he had access to thousands of books whenever he wanted, but who traveled with him around the world and helped him do so once he was out in the world on his own. Throughout high school, Garrett excelled in creative writing, churning out millions of words and far surpassing all of his classmates. After school, Garrett discovered a love of, and has had a budding career in the independent film industry. In today's digital age, however, he has discovered that new creative models are necessary to succeed. To that end, he has begun turning all of his film ideas into self-published books, in hopes of drumming up support and readership for the stories he has created.

This book starts the Realm Keepers series. It's a short episode that mostly deals with introducing the characters and the situation.
Episode one starts with a lot of exposition, so you have to be patient. Once it gets to the action, however, that patience is more than rewarded with a cracking read.
Since this is the first episode, I'd expect that the next episodes will have more action. This book has a lot of groundwork to lay and as such can be slow near the start.
From this episode, at least, this book would be suitable for anyone over the age of 10, although obviously I don't know if the rest of the series is appropriate for that age.
Read if you like the Narnia books, as this has quite a similar feel.
