Read full description of the books:Chris has always known his life was different.
No one else his age lives in an antiques shop, for one thing, and he's been trained to pay attention to every detail he sees, able to discover a person's life story in the setting of their watch or the tread of their shoes.
For someone with an almost photographic memory, all this makes him more than a little unusual. But even he is surprised by the turn his life takes when his grandfather hurries him from home and drops him at the airport with a flight to London, leaving him little direction besides the tantalizing revelation that his life is much more than he thought it was.
That he was born into a secret society of Finders and Keepers, people who reclaim lost artifacts and return them to their rightful owners, for a price. As soon as he lands, Chris is joined by a team of Finders whose one goal is to locate the most legendary artifact in history before it's used to overthrow the monarchy. An artifact most people don't even believe exists.
They're looking for Excalibur, and Chris is the only person in the world who can lead them to it.
