Book Review: The Guardian of the Way by Diane Moat


Title & Author: The Guardian of the Way by Diane Moat
Genre: Fantasy, Adventure
Release Date: November 7th 2016
Series: Standalone
Publisher: Createspace


It’s been two centuries since someone murdered the last Guardian of the Way, closing off this world from the many realms of magic and fae.

Cassiopeia “Cass” Wilson is an eighteen-year-old living on her own for the first time. The only magic she’s interested in is the kind that will help her pay the bills on time. Little does she know that a trip to the hospital after a fainting spell will change her life forever.

Cass soon learns she may be fae, and everything points to her being the next Guardian of the Way. There’s just one problem: whoever—or whatever—killed the last Guardian wants Cass dead too.

Cass quickly runs into problems, and an attack by djinn is just the first. But Cass joins forces with a wrath daemon, were-creatures, and fae on a quest to reach the Lighthouse—the site of the Way.

Cass soon learns about wizards desperate to keep the Way closed to serve their dark purposes, and she comes to a crossroads: will she take the test to become the new Guardian and leave her normal life behind? Or will the Way remain closed to all who need it?

I gave The Guardian of the Way by Diane Moat four out of five stars. It was such a good book, but it was so short! It felt like I was reading a great story, like Lord of the Rings, but than in less than 300 pages. Which means it you do not get all the details, but also lose some of the details.

The book was not as in dept as I would like. But I did really like it. The story just goes through the different elements of a story very fast. I expected the novel to end after each element, but I though it could just be a first part of more. But it was not, which amazed me. I am so used to books being trilogies and series.

Cassiopeia is a well rounded character. At the beginning of the novel she is a orphan that feels a bit out of place. And when she passes out during a night out with her two best friends, the story really starts. Even though I thought it was a bit weird she went with two guys who she barely knew on this adventure. And she feels, to me, a weird loyalty for one of these guys that dies soon after she meets him. But unlike it a lot of books, she does grow into becoming the Guardian of the Way

I like the Deamon Aeshma, he is funny and for once he falls for our protagonist, instead of the other way around.

Malon I did not find interesting, not because he was not a full character or that he was missing something. But he was just not someone I liked. He did not sit well with me, but it did not bother me.
