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.



OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES:




Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinels—magical knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the gateway books—rescue them from a demonic hound.

Jumping into some of the world's most beautiful libraries would be a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik's world and her own, before both are destroyed.



Review: 


Guardian of Secrets is full of magic, mystery, and fun. This book picks up where Thief of Lies left off. I want say how/when/where due to spoilerly reasons but read Their of Lies to figure out!

Gia, in my opinion, has made a big improvement. I really did not like her immaturity and oblivious state in book 1. But book 2, her character growth is evident. I love her relationship with Arik. Arik you better not mess things up or else.

One thing I love most is the writing! I enjoyed how the world was set up so elegantly and I was transported immediately. This series is intense. I wonder if there will be any other books written in this series.

Overall I would give Guardian of Secrets 4 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  1. I have not read this yet, but it does sound interesting. If Arik is a jerk, then I hope Gia dumps him.
