Rise of the Guardian by J.W. Baccaro
Reviewed by Moirae the fates book reviews.

While the Demon Lord Abaddon prepares to cast the Spell of Destruction and wipe out the glories of the earth for his own void of evil, Darshun Luthais, after a long oppressive journey, attempts to eradicate the source of his dark magic, the sacrificial Unholy Altar. But when the Dragon Gods unleash their barricade of fire the Delibious—a mystic realm of darkness, flames and witchery, Darshun must find a way through without burning his soul out of existence, and save the earth from the coming annihilation. (Synopsis provided by Amazon)

This is the fifth book in a 7 part series. As these books progress the review process gets more and more difficult, in a good way. It gets harder to write a review without giving away anything from the current or previous books.

Like the others, this book is packed with everything a reader can ask for, magic, action, adrenaline. Paranormal creatures, suspense. In short, it's awesome, like Hunger Games awesome. The more I read about Darshun, the more and more I love him. (I even tried to get my sister to name her son Darshun..she said no.)

What I find so neat is how Baccaro is able to keep the story flowing through out so many books and how he keeps your attention even between books. I always want to know more, what's next for Darshun and company? Will he survive? Will he fail? What. Is. Going. To. Happen?!

This one picks up after book four and we get to see Darshun face new challenges and obstacles. The ending surprised me and had me flipping over and over again hoping it would magically change and there would more to it. It was one of those WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?! Freak out endings. (Which I admit I secretly love especially reading them in public.)

This series is a fabulous adult series. I've said it before if you like Terry Goodkind, you really should give these books a try. You can find them at Amazon and on Whiskey Creek Press. What are you waiting for, start reading them today!

 So say we all!
