My Review:

Outcast is the first book in the Keepers of the Stone trilogy. The story begins right in the middle of the action and eludes to big events that have already happened in the lives of our teenage heroes. Most of the bad guys are completely evil, but not all of them, and the good guys aren't a hundred percent good. In fact, the main protagonist, Malka, is a thief and proud of it.

The story follows the lives of three teenage heroes who begin their adventures in India and end up on different continents. They have at least five things in common: they are teenagers, they are third culture kids, they are fighting on the same side, they are keepers (protectors) of the stone, and they have a common enemy, the evil Urumi. The story also follows the life of a teenager who works for the Urumi against her will. I recommend a small understanding of world history before reading this book, because there is a lot going on. It was certainly a fascinating read that will keep your mind engaged.
