Review: A Guardian of Shadows by Travis Simmons



Amber is still lost but, we now know what ails the Realm of the Earth. The constant evolving pace of the Revenant Wyrd Saga is what keeps me hooked. Series often tend to get watered down and Simmons has had his moments too but, the story is beautifully told in a vivid and imaginary world which is quite believable.

Unpredictability is key in this series. I did not expect Amber to remain lost still but, that also ensures that other characters who had minor roles in the beginning had a chance to flourish and become equally important to the plot. This sequel leaves the readers with a series of questions and paves a way for The Wings of Chaos. Will one of the siblings become a guardian? When will Amber be found? Who are the Wyr? Whose beliefs about the Wyr are true? What lives within the Shadow Realm?

To answer all your questions please do read the series The Revenant Wyrd Saga. You might feel a lot of things if you do start reading the series but, I promise you will not be bored.

A Guardian of Shadows (The Revenant Wyrd Saga #4)

The thrilling sequel to The Well of Wyrding.

In the enchanted lands of the Great Realms, Angelica, Jovian, and Joya are searching for their kidnapped sister, Amber. Their quest has led them through many dangers and many excitements, but nothing has prepared them for what’s about to come.

The wyr are alive, the Two who were never supposed to exist. They are destined to control the wyrd and fate of all mankind. Their very existence is destroying the world tree, on whose roots the fate of man is etched, and causing the Well of Wyrding, which sustains the world tree, to dissolve. Now Angelica and Jovian are hunted by the Norns, those three sisters of fate who guard the world tree and live at its roots, observing and preserving fate, who believe Angelica and Jovian are the wyr.

Angelica, Joya, and Jovian are on a race to escape the Norns as well as find their sister Amber, but with no clue where she could be, they turn their attention toward home, deep in the Holy Realm. The problem? Between them and their destination is the accursed land of eternal night: the Shadow Realm. Rumored to be filled with nightmarish creatures, forsaken to its shadowy depths, the Shadow Realm promises death to any from the Holy Realm who dare enter.

About the Author

Travis has been writing since he was 14. He began writing a book called “The Calling of the Two” and while writing that on and off he started uncovering another idea.

“Yes, this is all well and good, but what about before? What happened in the world before these characters came into it?” He always knew there was a “before” and as he started wondering about it he got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as he discovered the names for his characters a whole story about them emerged.

Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica’s story has been one wild ride for him. He has also written the Infernal Design series.

He lives in a small town at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and hoofing around my neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels. He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.
