Smashwords book reviews by Cheer Papworth

  • Guardians Of The Akasha on Feb. 11, 2013

    message 1: by Cheer (new) - rated it 3 stars 0 minutes ago I was graciously given the opportunity to read Guardians of the Akasha for free in exchange for my honest review by the author Celia Stander. I was initially intrigued by the gorgeous book cover and any story with a British main character and magic is worth a read. Although the story has plenty of interesting, unique characters, I feel like they need more development. Keira started off as this young Brit living a Bridget Jones kind of life being a little aimless, then suddenly she is this super powerful leader of the Akasha. Keira's character definitely went through a transformation, but it didn't unfold, it just sort of happens. I felt the same way about her romance with Marco...it just happens, no real angst. On a positive note, the characters I did really like include Victoria, Justin, Amber and the wolf Varg. Brave little Amber was a greater hero for me than Keira and Victoria had that Maggie Smith-like, Dowager Ducchess Lady Violet from Downton Abbey quality. Daemon as a villain, on the other hand, was kind of cliche. I must say I admire Celia greatly for completely her novel and wish her success. reply | edit | delete | flag *
