The Great War ended a century ago. Peace reigns across the eight countries. Epic tales of heroic men and women of those times are recounted in song and story. Yet, history seems to have forgotten a young battlefield healer, Tessa Marlise...

Sixteen-year-old Jimmy Chartron has just enrolled at the Navale Academy of Eagleon, his mind set on becoming an electrician. A chance magical encounter binds him to the trapped soul of Tessa Marlise. As Jimmy struggles to deal with this shocking development, murder and mystery unravel in the academy. Caught in the middle of everything, Jimmy realizes that a larger evil is afoot and that only two things can stop it: himself and the ghost in his head...


The critical thing for books, at least for me, is the cover needs to catch your attention; I want to find something new in it each time I look at it. The body is my clue to what I can find within the pages of the story. The world-building for this adventure story includes a fun ghost counterpart named Tessa made for a unique twist. There are a variety of characters to keep track of, but each one contains its voice so you can follow easily.
I don’t think I ever read a story where one character struggles with having two personalities inside them as this one does. Not only that, but it was a guy with a female war hero ghost inside him, and she determined to continue with her task of protecting the keystone. Though this is another story set in a school where something mysterious happens, this one spends more time on the adventure and mystery than the actual classroom part of it. Our main character Jimmy acts like a real teenager, which makes him a very relatable character with the added quirk of the ghost inside him., making for a different take on the school/mystery theme.

About J.T. Michaels

Author J.T. Michaels has always loved storytelling, no matter the medium. Being immersed in a different world, whether it’s through books or video games, has also been an obsession for him. Years after writing for his school magazine, he discovered he wanted to create his own worlds for readers, and his journey to fantasy writing began with Jimmy Chartron and the Lost Keystone, the first volume in his epic fantasy series.

J.T. gets inspiration for his books from everything around him, incorporating his friends as character ideas to make his stories as relatable and realistic as possible. He hopes his young readers come away from his stories having escaped from the real world for a bit and with a spark of magic that lasts long after the book is closed.

When he isn’t writing enchanting fantasy novels for teens, J.T. enjoys running and spending time outside in the sunshine and hunkering down in a bookstore or library on rainy days. He lives in British Columbia, Canada, where he likes to indulge in a great cup of coffee. Jimmy Chartron and the Lost Keystone is his debut novel, the first in a planned fantasy trilogy.
