The Guardians of the Forest: Book One 4.0 out of 5.0
I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read the next one. You are left at a semi-cliffhanger, although it’s not tortuous. I expected one thing when I saw the cover/ title name and was pleasantly surprised by the storyline itself. The descriptions in the book are light and airy and are too the point—meaning they didn’t overpower the story at hand.
Some of the character and place names remind me of some others from books and that is one thing to stray from. I was happy to see the main ones Keithara and Navadar are one’s that the reader does not stumble over upon reading.
Keithara’s life is a tedious one filled with duty and Navadar is the one interruption she hadn’t expected. Though her life is boring for the most part, she attempts to find happiness and her new friend seems to bring that and also a new threat of danger.
The story takes an unexpected twist about 60% of the way through and I enjoyed it. This climax sort of continued and held until the end.
Despite being her first novel this author’s potential can easily be seen. She has star quality and with some polish, I can see this supposed YA (which I think can easily appeal to wider audience), gain momentum in the fantasy realm.
