Review:The Guardian Chronicles 2 - The Fallen Guardian

The Fallen GuardianThe Fallen Guardian by Steven R. Burke

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

View all my reviews

The battle cry has roared. Orcs, Goblins, Higher Elves, Wolves, Warlocks, a rogue Elemental riding a Dragon, and an exiled evil join forces as the rest of Tuwa become allies for the ultimate war.
Mr. Burke brings to life the "war of the races" in Tuwa. He brings the Black Forest, Tarisdell, Landen alive. The characters spring forth in their own grief, imprisionment, fear, anger, and greed. Kings vs. Queen, General vs. General, Sister vs. Sister as time ticks and strategy is put to the test when an Elemental, Kana, has decided to take over by all means necessary.
The united front comes with it's own questions of solidarity, for now Elves, Giants, Dwarves, Eagles, Druids, Elementals (including Khalida - Kana's sister), Mystical Bears fight for survival.
The novel is written to be devoured, battle scenes unfold, and a cliffhanger is waiting. I am looking forward to unlocking the mystery of The Orb of Nitesh and reading further The Guardian Chronicles.
A Thanks to Goodreads and Steven Burke for sending me this book to review.
