The Last Beekeeper
by Rebecca L Fearnley
Could a brother and sister’s precious secret hold the key to saving the world … or kickstart another apocalypse?
Alphor is a harsh world and many children don’t survive the winter. Since the death of her parents, Solma has fought to protect her little brother, Warren. But he is weak and malnourished. His future looks bleak.
Until they find something. Something impossible.
When a bee, long-thought extinct, crawls from the ravaged earth, Warren discovers a magical connection to it. The siblings know this could save their dying world. But not everyone in Alphor wants to see the bees return. Not everyone thinks Warren’s new power is a good thing.
As enemies descend on their village, Solma must make a terrible choice:
Can she protect the bee and save the world, even if it means sacrificing her brother?
