HEARTKEEPER?by B.T. Lyons
Book One in the Heartkeeper Saga
Release Date: July 6, 2013
“People of the Field, of the Cave, of the Forest, and of the Mountain, and all the places and habitats in between, our race is able to gather here tonight because in time past we found that we were not the warden of the Earth, but the Earth was our warden, our sustainer, our parent…”
Mankind has survived the near-collapse of life as they knew it, now living in harmony with the world around them.? Adain, a young Tenderfoot of this Future Earth, is about to take part in his Heart Chase – the search for a companion animal spirit that will act as his companion and conscience for the rest of his life.? Success in the Heart Chase and surviving the subsequent Trials over the year ensures his place amongst the People as an adult, but failure means his certain death…
…and his whole future lies on the Heart of a mouse.
Heartkeeper??is the first book in the “Heartkeeper Saga”, an epic adventure of friendship, challenges, and danger as humans struggle to regain their foothold in a new world that is no longer theirs to control.? Can they survive in balance with the Earth, or will the Earth decide they no longer belong?
HEARTBOUND?by B.T. Lyons
Book One in the Heartkeeper Saga
(Middle Grade- YA everyone)?
Release Date:?July 12, 2013
It’s a new year, a new batch of Tenderfeet, and a new Heart Chase… but it is not the joyous occasion it has been for generations.
Shan, a Tenderfoot from devastated Sunperch Village, wants nothing to do with Hearts, the Heart Chase, or the Trials.? ?All he wants is for the surviving children of his home to be safe… and he’s willing to do anything to protect them.
Cill, now the youngest Heartsworn ever chosen by the People, is thrust headlong into a side of his People’s culture that is changing daily, where the answers to life’s challenges are never easy and what is “right” is not as obvious as it once seemed.
New alliances will be forged, an entire way of living will be questioned, and the mystery of the Hearts and the Guardians deepens in ?Heartbound, Book Two of the Heartkeeper Saga.?

Interesting Facts:
One thing that makes this cover extremely exciting is that the artwork was created by the author herself! (To see more of her art, check out her ?art page on her website.)?
The novella of Heartkeeper was featured in Clean Teen Publishing’s break through anthology, ?Wonderstruck??and has received numerous outstanding reviews. When B.T. Lyons accepted our invitation to submit a full length novel for this fantastical story, we were so pleased. All of us at CTP are super excited to have such a talented artist and writer on our team!
