Emerald Kipp & The Riddle of The Timekeeper
When her family and friends begin to disappear, Emerald Kipp is thrown head first into the witching world she was never allowed to be a part of. Her only clue into their disappearance comes from a small black box with a message from the past: find the The Timekeeper, solve the riddle.
The teenaged witch must now rely on Dr. Toad, a rotund witch doctor who had already almost killed her once, her finicky cat Cashmere who she’s just learned could talk, and an underground network of witches throughout New York City who made a vow years before to help her on her journey.
As if the treacherous riddle wasn’t enough, along the way Emerald learns the people she’s trusted her whole life aren’t who they seem to be, and what’s worse, a fearsome enemy is hunting for a witch who can control time. Unfortunately for Emerald, she has just discovered that she can do just that.
Emerald’s never been good at anything except getting into trouble, but now it’s up to her to solve the riddle and uncover a mystery that goes farther back than she’d ever imagined. And she might just find, that she’s a lot more than the troubled loser she thought she was.
Emerald Kipp & The Riddle of The Timekeeper is Harry Potter meets The Goonies, with a rebellious pink haired, music aficionado as the main character.
