Kenna is fulfilling the last wish of her grandmother by traveling to Covia and Kesonov.  Unbeknownst to her, she has latent powers that come to life because of Lore, King of Covia. 

Any Price is an intense look at a hidden culture within our society.  Because of an incident in Covia and Kesonov’s past, the race of Keepers have lost their powers until the uniting of the First Daughter, which Kenna turns out to be, and the One, Lore. What follows is an intriguing relationship as the Keepers evolve. 

This book is not like any of Ms. Faulkner’s I have read in the past, but I am not disappointed in the least as the characters she created, along with the relationships among the people, are realistic.  The fact that the Keeper evolve into something we might think of as myth is something I have often wondered about and the way the author did it makes this a real possibility. 

The suspense is intense and a reader will be hard pressed to put this book down.  I suspect that there will be more stories, making this a series or at least a sequel, to resolve how the Keepers are going to defeat the evil that stalks them.  There were quite a few twists and turns within the story that gives the reader a new outlook about the mystery within the story.  I am looking forward to reading more about the Keepers in the future.
