The Last Keeper’s Daughter by Rebecca Trogner is a genre breaker that seeps into fantasy, humor, romance, adventure, and epic thriller. Lily has always been unique and suffered from severe social disorders at best without medical explanation. The frail young woman receives more than a diagnosis upon the mysterious disappearance of her father Walter. Given shelter and protection, from what she knows not, a man named Krieger takes Lily into his elaborate home where she discovers the world is much more complex than she was taught. The biggest mystery, however; is that Lily is not what she nor the ‘Others’ thought and everyone becomes entwined in unraveling her history as well as the dark secrets of their own.
Characters you could never imagine exist in this suspenseful and eerie world within our own. Throw in a surly and sarcastic detective and you’ve got a refreshing voice of reason throughout a realm of madness to mere mortals. There’s a corn field sprouting in Iowa that will whisper, ‘If Trogner writes, people will read it.’
