When I first read part of Guardians of the Grimoire on Wattpad I was entranced so, when I was offered the opportunity to review it, I leapt at it. What I found from the beginning to the end was a magical adventure that makes the reader forget about everything else in the world. I literally search, often in vain, every avenue of media in order to find what Guardians of the Grimoire contains.
Now one of the most fantastic things about Guardians of the Grimoire is that it introduces completely ne...more

Epic fantasy, high fantasy, dark fantasy: I love everything about this genre. And I love everything about this book.Guardians of the Grimoire is deserved of space on my bookshelf next to the tomes of Robert Jordan and David Eddings. If you’re looking for a rehash of the plot, go elsewhere. This review is to tell you WHY you need to read this book.

Ms. Slight contacted me via my blog and requested a review of her work. I took a look at her website, peeked a little at Guardians on Amazon and decide...more

Original Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Owls

Disclaimer: I recieved this book from the author in an exchange for a honest review. This does not bias my review in any way.

This is not your typical YA fantasy book that you'll pick up randomly one day at the library. I usually get drawn toward fantasy books all the time anyways, so I thought it was going to be a typical fantasy book you find everyday when I got asked to review Guardians of the Grimoire. But then,...more

I have read the first few chapters of this book on Wattpad, and has become my favorite since then.

Natasha Slight introduces us to a promising world she has created; full of magic, destined heroines that have no idea of their roles to play until their coming-of-age, and corrupt humans associated with the villain.

I am impressed, so to speak, as this novel isn't one of those mediocre works written by aspiring authors. I like Slight's writting style. Her description. Imagination. It has all taken me...more

I love to read. Plain and simple. If I could take an entire day, sit on a couch or a comfy chair and do nothing but read with a great motion picture soundtrack playing in the background, I would do it time and again. I absolutely love when an author is able to create an amazing world and pull me into it, develop believable characters I am immediately able to connect with and love, and grab my attention while taking me on a fantastic adventure and never let it go.

Natasha's story has everything I...more

WOW, this book took me on the most amazing, wonderful, fantastical journey and one that I have not had the pleasure of being on, for many years. It pulls you in so deep; you need to take a moment to breathe. This is exactly how I felt after the third chapter! I had a permanent smile on my face and to be honest, was quite flabbergasted, at myself nonetheless. Why? You may ask. The author wrote this book for the Young Adult with the Young Adult in mind. I can tell you right now – I am an adult, bu...more

Set in a medieval world where kings and their nobles co-exist with sorcerers and magical creatures, Guardians of the Grimoire is a comfortably paced tale of high adventure. Destined since early childhood to be the guardians of the grimoire that holds all the magic in the world, the three girls, Kerani, Tiluvia and Cesca, become aware of this enormous responsibility when they turn eighteen. Not only must they keep and protect the amulets that, when combined, make the key to open the grimoire, the...more

I first found Guardians of the Grimoire on Wattpad while I was looking around for adventure stories to read, and I can really say that to have to chance to review it is one of my greatest pleasures. From the prologue, I was already in love with the book and the way it went along. My first thought after reading Guardians of the Grimoire? Well, it was, "This book needs to be published." Imagine how glad I was when I found it that it was to become an eBook!

Guardians of the Grimoire made an impact o...more

What I absolutely loved about this book were the characters. It might seem odd for me to say this, but I loved the bad guys (I wasn't rooting for them, but it's fun to see how your favorite characters have to put up with them). Kael, the corrupt god; Merazar, the evil sorcerer; Nox, the sneaky chancellor. Now, what more could we ask for?
The banter between the characters is funny, witty, and has you downright laughing out loud at times. The dialogue is clean and to the point, and everything is cr...more

I don't read a lot of fantasy books. So when I was approached about reading Guardians of the Grimoire, by Natasha Slight, I was torn. But when I read the synopsis, I was intrigued. Mainly by the fact that Guardians of the Grimoire is a story about three strong, fearless girls. I don't know if this is actually a fact, but I, myself, do not come across many fantasies with female leads.

That fact is what intrigued me most about Guardians of the Grimoire. I especially felt affection towards two of t...more

I’ve always been interested in stories of magic and girls with great destinies, so Guardians of the Grimoire immediately caught my attention with its promise of a fantastic adventure. I’m glad I gave this book a chance because it proved to be a really fun read overall!

Right from the start, the book sets a fast pace, wasting no time in getting right to the heart of the plot. Initially, it felt a bit abrupt, but once the girls’ adventu...more

I've always loved fantasy novels, and so it was no surprise that I loved the idea of this one. A book that controls the magic in both the human and spirit worlds? Count me in! But unfortunately, there was something about this book that just didn't work for me. Perhaps it's the fact that my English teacher is always going on about 'showing not telling', or the fact I read this after Cornelia Funke's stunning Fearless, but the writing wasn't as poetic as I wanted it to be. This improved as the...more

Once I received the email to participate in this blog tour, I knew there was no way I could pass it up. I expected the book to be fairly similar to many others within the fantasy genre although I had only encountered one other tale with a grimoire at its center. It is safe to say that this book was nothing like what I expected. It contains many of the fantasy genre's tropes - a long journey, magical powers, villains, dark magic - but succeeded in bringing something new to the genre.

Slight is suc...more

Guardians of the Grimoire is a great young Paranormal Young Adult book that any reader of fantasy and paranormal will enjoy. This is a fanastic book for the young ones but also perfect for parents to read along with the children.

It's always hard to review a Young Adult book because just face it I'am not really the kind of reader, that Guardians of the Grimoir is written for. But is it a big plus if an adult can enjoy a book just as much as the the children can. Guardians of the Grimoire is a lov...more

The Guardians of the Grimoire is Natasha Slight’s debut offering into the world of Fantasy novels and I must congratulate Ms. Slight on two things: The author has written an excellent Fantasy tale that is well plotted out and she has done something authors can look to as an example of how a novel should be presented. The editing of this tale is well-done and I found no grammatical errors at all.

The Grimoire is a book that contains magic enough to overpower the different realms of the universe. T...more

I really don't usually not finish books, however, I don't ever see me bothering to pick up this book again. I was really excited when I was asked to read this book. I love fantasy books, I love YA, I thought perfect. The problem? I can't get into this book. I felt like the first few chapters were just a giant prologue. And, then just when I start to get comfortable BAM different character POV, every single time. I don't know if that changes at some point or what. Maybe if I gave it more time, bu...more

I liked this novel. At first, there's so many characters being introduced that's it very difficult to keep everyone straight. It took a while before I could honesty tell who was who. This novel is amazingly creative & really introduces you to a whole new world. It reminded me of King Arthur's time meets Alice in Wonderland. Ha. Overall, I enjoyed it & will look forward to reading book 2.
