Review:Guardian of Secrets

I was able to be a part of the cover reveal for Library Jumpers #2, and now it is actually here!



Being a Sentinel isn’t all fairytales and secret gardens.

Sure, jumping through books into the world’s most beautiful libraries to protect humans from mystical creatures is awesome. No one knows that better than Gia Kearns, but she could do without the part where people are always trying to kill her. Oh, and the fact that Pop and her had to move away from her friends and life as she knew it.

And if that isn’t enough, her boyfriend, Arik, is acting strangely. Like, maybe she should be calling him “ex,” since he’s so into another girl. But she doesn’t have time to be mad or even jealous, because someone has to save the world from the upcoming apocalypse, and it looks like that’s going to be Gia.

Maybe. If she survives.

Brenda Drake

Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical. When she’s not writing or hanging out with her family, she haunts libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or reads someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).


I have reviewed several of Brenda Drake’s novels on this site, but I have to say, this has been my favorite. I wish I had read Thief of Lies again before reading Guardian of Secrets  though, because there were many times I was trying to recall who certain characters were, or specific events that had happened. Brenda Drake did a decent job in her attempt to jog my memory throughout the novel, but I still felt lost at times.

That aside, Guardian of Secrets brought out a lot more dynamics between the characters. I felt a lot more connected to them. There were also new characters, settings and dangers that really took things to a new level.   Like in the first novel, you aren’t always sure who the good or bad guys, even at the end. I loved how she kept me guessing.

I highly recommend reading Guardian of secrets (after reading Thief of Lies, the first book in the Library Jumpers series). I am giving it 4 out of 5 Stars.
