Blood Guards, to the Rescue

Is your mom who you think she is? Or is she someone with a hidden identity that you have no clue about.

13 year-old boy Evelyn Ronan Truelove (who goes by “Ronan” because he thinks the rest of his name is embarrassing) finds out that his mom isn’t ordinary at all. She is part of “The Blood Guard”, an ancient, sword wielding, secret society who protect 36 noble souls called the Pure. The Pure are naturally good people, who need to survive to make the world a better place; if they die the world will turn bad. An evil group called “The Bend Sinister”try to kill the Pure. When Ronan’s dad goes missing, Ronan goes on a thrilling, life threatening journey to find his dad and save the world. “Trust no one” is his mom’s advice. While on the journey, he unexpectedly meets an old acquaintance, Greta Sustermann. Ronan, Greta, and Jack Dawkins(Another Blood Guard) work together and fight through challenges in an epic battle to save the world. Ronan and his friends find themselves learning new skills while on this breathless adventure involving sword fighting and car chases. Many times, death flashes before their eyes but they always find some way to survive using teamwork.
The author, Carter Roy emphasizes the importance of teamwork, even with strangers. This is an action packed book you never want to put down and kids will find themselves reading this book under the covers well past bedtime. I would rate this book 9.5 out of 10 stars and recommend this book to kids who love action-packed mysteries. My recommended age group would be 9+ because there are a few violent and bloody scenes but they end quickly. I can’t wait to read the other two books in this trilogy.
