First of all, I have to say I am not a native english speaker so, please, I prefer to not be attacked, if I made any mistakes. Instead of do that, it would be nice if you corrected me, thank you :)
Here we go with the final installment of The Guardians of Time series! Don’t know if you guys know this, but Marianne Curley said she was writing another book to this series, still untitled and still with no release date. But hey, we will have an another book! We can only hope for the best and keep fin...more

There's not a lot of time travel since the conflict comes to a head in the present. I didn't really miss it that much, though, since this series has never really spent much time on the actual time travel.
I tried not to get hung up on a ...more
You would think, having read it a dozen times and being well aware of what's coming, I would be prepared. But no. No, no. The pain is real.
Imagine my sheer f**kng delight that after ten years there is a book four. Yes, I'm sure it will break my heart to start but maybe, just maybe, it will put it back together again!
I wish with all my heart that I could give this a 5 but I just can't. If this didn't have one of the most abrupt endings in all of the books I've ever read in my life, than this would definitely be 5 stars.
This third and final installment had the fast-paced action from the second book along with the romance from the second book, but after I finished the last sentence, I literally said outloud "what the f---?!" There was definitely a last chapter missing somehow... ...more
1) Lorian's gender neutrality is treated horribly. The pronoun used for Lorian is always always "he" and about five to seven times, it is said that there is no way for Lorian to have romantic feelings for a woman without being male. As someone who identifies mainly as gender neutral, it is painful to read this sentiment over and over again
2) Dillon's misogyny, while briefly addressed, isn't really called out more. Not on ...more
Marianne Curley is an amazing author indeed!
A number of predictable "twists" as usual, one genuine "omg" moment and a fairly weak/unsatisfying ending though.
I'm glad to have finished the series and am glad I read it. It's not one that I'll bother to reread again though.
The Key is told through the eyes of Matt and Rochelle. I see why the author decided to tell this part of the story from their point of view, but I really missed seeing the story through the eyes of Ethan, Isabel, and Arakarian.
One of my favorite parts was the ending. It was fast-paced, and a lot was resolved. But, at the same time, it left a lot unexplained. There are many loo ...more
I don't have words to describe this trilogy, what it ment to me, what it made me feel and how would I spent my days daydreaming about it.
I was obsessed with this trilogy! even had a forum (since the firt book came out) to talk about the next books, characters, fanfiction and other!
GREAT book for all ages, and I hope others have the opportunity to explore this great universe!
Also thank you again Marianne Curley for answering the email I ...more
Ethan is a normal, modern-day boy when he’s awake, but when he sleeps his powers awaken as a Guardian of the Named. The Named are a secret organization whose purpose is to preserve and protect history as we know ...more
First of all, I'd just like to say that it got me to like certain characters even more than I thought was possible! With the different view points, you really get to understand the characters better!
Ok, this book was really exciting and I couldn't stop reading it! adored it, and it had me giggling in places everywhere! I adored it!
So, we came off from the last book, The Dark , and now, the characters are on a big journey to find, well, the Key that Matt found ...more
I was frustrated with the romances. Luckily no love triangles. But I hate it when characters are stubborn and I feel it's a stubbornness that's out of character.
The ending left me wanting, which is why she probably published a fourth book recently to close up loose ends.
