synopsis4

Magic and magical creatures. Immortal gods and goddesses. History and mythology. Strap in for this action-packed YA novel that takes place over the days leading up to World War II, when Ziva must rely on her wit and magic to outmaneuver Nazis and ancient Egyptian gods to prevent global destruction.

Ziva has one memory of her parents, made the day they abandoned her on the streets of New York City when she was three years old. They left her with only a memory and a promise that she had a great and terrible destiny.

Fifteen years later, Ziva discovers that destiny includes powers that she doesn’t understand and can barely control. Her magic attracts vicious, otherworldly monsters, and eventually compatriots to help her fight them. Sayer and Nasira know the secrets Ziva doesn’t; that Ziva is descended from Egyptian royalty and in possession of ancient magic passed down from the time of the gods. They promise to teach Ziva to control her magic and to give her the family she’s always yearned for.

But trouble is brewing in the world around them; darkness is descending on Hitler’s Germany, threatening World War II. As the last heir of a revered Egyptian queen, Ziva is the only one with the power to prevent another costly global conflict. As Ziva navigates her newfound abilities and makes a connection with Anubis and other Egyptian gods, the Nazis are hunting for the ultimate weapon, and Ziva has caught their interest.

Wardens of Eternity by Courtney Moulton is a unique and fun YA fantasy tale with an interesting mythological twist and I enjoyed reading it until the end.

I found the storyline of this novel intriguing and there are so many fascinating parts that I really loved. The Egyptian mythology and the WWII aspects are both quite interesting and while I’m not a huge fan of history, I surprisingly enjoyed this part.  I was also enamored with the world-building, all the details about the magical system and Egyptian gods, and the power Ziva possessed and how it all works. I think Moulton’s writing is easy to read and I had no major issues with it other than some conversations felt a bit awkward at times. While some parts were a bit slow and a little confusing at times for me, it didn’t really take away from the overall feel of the story. I think the plot is well-paced with a good mix of action, magic, friendship, betrayal, love, and twists and turns that had me captivated. While the romance didn’t really do it for me, I did feel a few swoons here and there. As for the ending, there’s is definitely a twist and it absolutely left me wanting more.

The characters are quite interesting and likable, but I didn’t connect with them as much as I thought I would. I enjoyed getting to know Ziva and watching her character grow over the course of the story, but there are some things about her that didn’t really sit well with me.

All in all, I felt like Moulton created a wonderful and unique fantasy tale that would appeal to plenty of readers. I think the writing is good, the world building is fantastic, and the overall storyline is intriguing and engaging enough. While the characters aren’t spectacular, they’re still likable and pretty interesting.  If you enjoy this type of books and want a fun adventure with a mix of mythology and magic, then you’ll probably be entertained with this book.

I received a free physical copy of this book from the author and publisher for participating in a blog tour hosted by TLC Book Tours in exchange for fair and honest review. Thank you Blink, Courtney Moulton, and TLC Book tours. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

There’s nothing like being unstuck from space and time to make you seriously rethink your life plans. ⁣

Sally just wanted a nice Florida vacation, but between literal jump-scares, internet scammers, and the not-FBI hot on their tail, just can’t seem to find the time to relax. Will she and Zander ever have that candlelight dinner? ⁣

When a mystery lands on their doorstep in the middle of the night, it seems like the answer to all their problems. From Florida malls to the dark side of the moon, the trio needs to stall their nervous breakdowns in order to save the planet from an extra-terrestrial murderer – and, apparently, themselves.

abouttheauthor

S.E. Anderson can’t ever tell you where she’s from. Not because she doesn’t want to, but because it inevitably leads to a confusing conversation where she goes over where she was born (England) where she grew up (France) and where her family is from (USA) and it tends to make things very complicated.

She’s lived pretty much her entire life in the South of France, except for a brief stint where she moved to Washington DC, or the eighty years she spent as a queen of Narnia before coming back home five minutes after she had left. Currently, she goes to university in Marseille, where she’s starting her masters of Astrophysics.

When she’s not writing, or trying to science, she’s either reading, designing, crafting, or attempting to speak with various woodland creatures in an attempt to get them to do household chores for her.  She could also be gaming, or pretending she’s not watching anything on Netflix.
