The Cathedral of Cliffdale Review
Beyond the limits of mankind’s understanding there exists a City, created as a sanctuary for the survivors of a brutal and bloody war.
Within the city of Summerfeld the last mythical creatures live out their days in peace, fiercely protected by twelve immortals: brave defenders known as the Guardians.
A Guardian is dead. For the first time in one thousand years, no replacement has come forward. Following the murder of her twin sister, Quinn Harden abandons the Guardianship in order to take care of her sister’s children in the modern realm of man. Shortly after their second birthday, the children are taken, against her will, in an attempt by the Guardians to bring her back into the fold.
Quinn will stop at nothing to find her niece and nephew, but as she is drawn deeper into the world of Summerfeld, she finds herself torn between her loyalty to her family and the wards she has sworn to protect.
As their enemies close in the Guardians must unite or Summerfeld will fall.
What a fantastic book! I could not put it down, such an interesting take on magical creatures. I cannot wait to read further in the series to find out what happens next. These various story lines are all very intriguing and one really wants to know how they all converge.
Quinn is a fantastically strong female character and I love how she interacts with those around her. Drake is an interesting character and I am dying to know more about him. The whole thing just draws me in.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a copy of an honest review.
