A Review of Guardian





Guardian
Written by Katie Hines

 What does a very special book, a peculiar webbed scar, a secret promise, a mysterious knight, and a hidden treasure all have in common?  They make for an exciting middle grade urban fantasy full of adventure, secrecy and danger.

Sitting around a campfire, Drew is ready to share his secret promise with his friends Javon and Mattie.  Before he is able to do so a hooded stranger, carrying a sword, steps out of the darkness and approaches the young teens.  He then demands to know where the book is.

Who is this hooded stranger and where did he come from?  What is the book he is talking about?  Could it be the book Drew touched when he was a young boy?  How is this all connected to the promise he made to his dying mother?

From the first page to the last, you are drawn into this story that is full of twists, turns and a surprise ending that you definitely don't want to miss.


** Katie is picking one lucky person who posts a comment during her blog tour to receive a free copy of her book Guardian.  Be sure and leave a comment today as it is the last day of the blog tour.

Hi to everyone who has stopped by.

Guardian is a great book and I've got it on my Christmas gift giving list. Never too early to start Christmas shopping!

OMG, Susanne, never even thought about that! I need a copy for my soon to be 8 y/o, but this would be an excellent please-forgive-me-for-being-super-late birthday gift (January!)for my 10 y/o nephew in Tennessee!

Katie Hines said...

Thanks, Susanne, for doing a great job of hosting me!

Katie Hines said...

Wow! Birthday presents for your kids, what a great idea. Now all you have to do is tell your friends, relatives...to do the same!
