This is the fourth book in the ‘Chronicles of Tournai’ series, set in a fantasy world where almost everyone has some level of magical Talent and the royal family has a whole lot but keep it a secret. After the excitement of the mighty empire of Ardunn attempting to overpower the much smaller but resilient country of Tournai in the previous book, the storyline focuses on the mysterious defenses that have protected Tournai so far, but seem to be weakening. None other than Savarin, the powerful sor ...more

This book was a struggle. I almost didn’t finish it multiple times. First of all it was a bit boring. I ended up skimming some while Savarin and Loriot were traveling inspecting the borders. The other problem was Savarin. He was just so unlikable. He was such a tedious and arrogant self-centered individual that I just couldn’t warm up to him. Even at the end when he supposedly opened up more to Loriot, I didn’t like him. And I just didn’t find the romance between Loriot and Savari

Ok, let me first say that I've read all of the books so far in the Tournai series and I'm done with them. I just can't read any more. In general, the pace is slow-to-boring, the action occurs off-page, the cover art is dreadful, and I lack connection to the characters. But the setting is wonderful, if the characters a little too 2-D and stagnant. I mean, I get the impression that the author really doesn't know what her characters do for a living. There's talk of "meetings" and "estate business" ...more

2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Sorcerer's Guardian (Chronicles of Tournai #4)
1) A perfect score from me for this elegantly written tale of wizardry and enduring love. Savarin is a master wizard, Loriot, the captain of the royal guard - an unlikely and reluctant pairing when Lorriot is directed to guard Savarin on his quest to shore up the magical defenses of Tournai. At first irritated by the wizard's seeming arrogance, Loriot grows to admire Savarin's strength of character and brave

A must read in the Tournai series! A beautiful love story!

Mild Disclaimer before I begin this review, I am totally biased to this series and am in love with it. Okay? Let’s go then.

This was different as the first three books each had a member of the royal family in it and in this, we have two men who are charged and trusted with not only the protection of the royal family but their secrets as well. It makes sense that Savarin and Loroit would be perfect for one another for who could handle the men who hold such power in Tournai.

The men are th

Another MM book with bisexual main characters! Just like the second book in the series, and let's not forget about the third book which actually starts out with a main character marrying a woman. I didn't read the first book in the series but I can only imagine the numerous heterosexual relationships those characters will have to 'overcome' to be together.

She has a fondness for travel (and a long list of
