The Last Beekeeper

by Rebecca L Fearnley

Teenage guard Solma has protected her village for years. But how can she guard her family against sickness and starvation? With flying insects extinct in Alphor for a hundred years, crops fail and more people die. Only the mysterious power of the Earth Whisperers keeps the continent from collapsing. Every winter, Solma’s terrified her little brother, Warren, will be the next to die.
So, when Warren finds the first bee seen in a century, forming a strange bond with the creature, both he and Solma know what this could mean for their dying world. But as word of the insect sweeps the continent, allies and enemies alike descend on the village. Some demand the bees for themselves, others want to destroy the colony to level the odds. When words turn to violence, Solma and Warren are caught in the conflict, and now it isn’t just the bees in danger.
