Daniel Mickle has the ability to pen a great tale, his writing is fluid and the story is fast paced. Soul Keeper is a well written crisp book with a varied and interesting vocabulary. Some if the ideas are really unique and those parts of the story I found exciting. Though the premise is nothing like Harry Potter I couldn’t help but compare certain aspects of this story to that. Fire Place travel, fancy named broom used for sports, a powerful evil wizard whose name cannot be spoken by the White Witch and more besides! The story itself does not follow Harry Potter but I wish there weren’t so many similarities to it once the kids found out they were magical and went to train at the school, it took the edge off my enjoyment of the book.
