OK. So, I did like the book a lot, and I really would like to read the rest of this series as well. However, I must say that the author had to earn her credibility back after naming the dimension of the guardians Pemdas. I was expecting some kind of mathematical punchline at the end of the book or something.
But really, I very much looked forward to reading this book each night. It takes some science fiction, and mixes it with historical romance. If you’re a Sci-Fi genre fan, but do not care for historical romances, you’ll probably not like this book. The concept of the dimensions is a bit tough since there isn’t much of the sci-fi aspect to this novel. It’s sort of a back-burner to the plot that takes place in the castle & surrounding lands. The book starts out pretty fast with the kidnapping of Reece by the Pemdai, but then slows down when she’s in the Guardian’s dimension. It speeds back up at the end with the battle on Earth. Although I did like the story, I think it needed a bit more sci-fi in the middle.
The writing is well done and the plot easy to follow. Her characters are thoroughly developed, and I can visualize them as I read. The dialogue is intriguing and interesting. At no point did I feel lost or confused. A good read, indeed.
I enjoyed this book, and am interested in reading the rest of the Ancient Guardian Series.

Categories Science Fiction Romance Young Adult Romance Fantasy Romance Paranormal Romance From the author I have always been an individual with a very vivid imagination. I love getting lost in books that transport you into their worlds with their characters. In October of 2011, I decided to create my own fantasy world and imaginary characters that would sweep the readers into an enchanting and mystical dimension. In order to create the storyline, I asked the question, “What if?” What if there were other worlds outside of life on Earth? What would those other worlds be like? Would they have an interest in Earth, if so would they desire to harm or protect it? Once I started answering these questions, the writing process began. The idea to interweave the super-natural worlds with seventeenth century England was inspired by love for historical romances. I decided to take the passion I have for reading a good, clean classic historical romance and interweave that with my years of watching, reading and loving sci-fi and fantasy novels. The result is this book, two of my favorite types of reading material, completely opposite of each other, interwoven together bringing to the readers what I consider to be...the best of both worlds.
