Review - Guardian by Katie Hines

Drew Newman has carried a terrible secrets that he shares with his friends, Javon and Mattie. Drew’s mother died protecting him and the journal. The very same journal that gave him the tree like markings on him.

Strange hooded men with swords attack them. Drew and his friends barely escape. Drew’s father fears for their safety and sends Drew and his friends to Canada to stay with his grandparents & cousin Zea.

Grandpa believes the journal is related to the Oak Island treasure. They soon believe that the men following them is the Templar Knights, and that the Holy Grail may be the center of the mystery.

“The Guardian” is a simple and fast read. You’ll finish it in one sitting. I found the characters Javon and Mattie to be boring, and sometimes annoying. I never could figure out the kids’ ages in the book. The descriptions in the first few chapters says that they are athletic, and I picture them as being young adults. The boy on the cover looks like he is around ten years old. The dialogue for the grandparents is unreal, they talk the same way as the kids do. Despite being a little confused, I thought the overall plot was great, and it will keep you interested until the very end.

Note: I would like to thank the Author Marketing Experts for sending me this complimentary copy to review.
