Thoughts on the Overall Book: I love books with monsters and beasties in them, especially when they go the traditional rout as in, the monsters are actually monsters and not the love interests. There's a sad lack of those kinds of books, especially in YA, so I was excited to find this one and to have the chance to read and review it.

Cover--Yea or Nay: Not my favorite cover ever, but it's not terribly either.

Characters: Errol was a likable protagonist. Even though in the beginning of the book he

Errol and his older brother Tom are Wardens, who patrol the Badlands keeping local people and their farms safe from the deadly creatures and monsters that live there, risking their lives on a daily basis. When Tom goes missing, it is up to young Errol to find his brother, while being tracked by the deadly Wendigo which devours human flesh.

A copy of Warden was kindly sent to me by Kevin Hardman in exchange for an honest review.

It always pleases me beyond belief when a book I receive for review turns out to be brilliant. Warden is a fast paced, well written and thrilling novella, and I found myself unable to put it down. The action really picked up a few chapters in and from that point on it was unrelenting action and tension.

The characters are fantastic (I think Dorsey is my favourite). Errol is a reluctant hero who, naturally

Warden is the second Kevin Hardman novel that I read and while Sensation was an overtly super-hero infused novel with a lot of sci-fi elements thrown in (and the occasional mystical/magical elements), Warden is the complete opposite. It deals with the arkane and the supernatural. Magic and monsters galore. And it was pretty good, if you ask me.

The things that I liked:

First of all, definitely the magic. I have always been a huge fan of stories that involve magic. I liked the way Kevin used it in
3.5 stars. Scary but too short. Really enjoyed it, the only reason I couldn't give it a higher than average rating was it was too short and left me wanting more monsters and more character development and maybe another story line woven in. Reminded me of Last Apprentice series (or Wardstone Chronicles) by Joseph Delaney and that is high praise in my book.

* Wardens being monster-hunters using weapons, magic and their wits
* Errol making mistakes and learning from them
* Errol not slacking off

The Warden series is shaping up to be a pretty good horror/fantasy series. I'm rating it at a 4, although only just. There are some positives and drawbacks to the book, but overall I think it sits in the 4 star range. I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

1. The greatest thing about the story is the development of character. I've recently read Hardman's 'Sensation' book about a teen superhero, and there has been a lot of improvement in characterization. Th

* I reviewed this book as part of Read it and Reap*

Wendigo Fever follows the adventures of 16 year old Errol as he searches for his missing brother in the dangerous world of the Badlands. This book was labelled YA but I felt it was more of a children's book. That is not a criticism of the author; as a kid's book it is brilliant, had I been a younger reader I would have loved it. It is a frolicking, adventure-type fantasy with a fairy-tale feel and as such, a little light for me.

I would like to, first of all, thank the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange of a fair review.

I found this book to be greatly to my liking. The main focus of the book is about the other brother, the one who was supposed to go out into the world to better things while big brother carried out the family heritage. When big brother comes up missing in action it falls to him to find his brother and save the "ward" from monsters and certain disaster.

Of course there has to be a st

I was given the book "Warden: Wendigo Fever" by Kevin Hardman through Goodreads Read it and Reap program, in exchange for an honest review.

This was a fun and fast read. It was easy to get caught up in the main plot, putting some of my fav characters (from my fav tv show) faces onto the brothers while they were hunting the Wendigo, as well as some other various monsters throughout the pages, keeps readers interested.

That being said, it was a refreshing break from day to day life, to get lost in

I liked this book very much... :-)

A horror novel with a reluctant hero with scary monsters and a believable character development. In the beginning I found it a bit slow, but it improved rapidly and proved itself to be a fun and engaging read. There was a lot of details which I enjoyed (I dont want to be more specific because I dont want to post spoilers). It was a bit short. More a novella than

It was a lovely fantasy short read!!
It was fun and adventurous..It had character...I liked it very much!!!

I loved the prologue and the epilogue..The prologue sparked my interest and the epilogue was intriguing and preparing us for the next book..
I also loved the progress Errol's character displayed..He started out as a boy in his own desires and dreams and the book ended with him as a responsible loyal man..

I seriously recommend it,if you like fantasy...

Somewhat lacking, though that might be because I didn't have the time to immerse myself into the world. I will revisit it later.
