The Guardian - Book 1
I withdrew a small card from the pouch. The front of it was filled with lines of elegant, hand-lettered script.
"What does it say?" Dad asked, leaning forward.
"The Four Remembers of Life," I read. "Number one: Remember you are unique. Number two: Remember, there is purpose to your life. Number three: Remember, you are free to choose what you are and what you become. And number four: Remember, you are not alone."
When thirteen-year-old Danni McAllister receives an antique pouch as a birthday gift from her grandfather, her first reaction is disappointment. “Don’t assume that something is empty just because there’s nothing there,” her grandfather warns. Danni learns that for nearly two hundred years, the mysterious pouch — with its astonishing hidden secrets — has been handed down from generation to generation, and each new owner has to discover for themselves how to access the power it holds, or suffer the penalty of using the pouch unwisely.
Three years later as Danni struggles to understand the power of the pouch, her father discovers a rhodium mine, and her parents become the targets of a deadly extortionist plot. The strange pouch is Danni’s only hope of saving her family.

We stopped a few feet inside the mine to let our eyes adjust to the darkened tunnel.Cody started to push his way past Dad, but Dad’s arm shot out and held him back.
“Jean-Henri,” he cried. “Look!” He was pointing forward, directing his light at the floor.
I moved up to see better. Suddenly the chills were back, only this time they were hitting every cell in my body. The dirt floor was covered with footprints. No, not footprints. Boot prints. And none of us had worn that kind of boots when we were in here before.
