You can call me a Naomi Finley fangirl now, friends! I've been wanting to read her since she released A Slave of Shadows and I'm so glad that I finally did. A Guardian of Slaves was a fascinating read!

I hadn't had the chance to read the first book in the series, A Slave of Shadows, yet. But it didn't take away from my enjoyment of this follow up. In fact, I want to read the first book even more now to see what I missed!

Willow is now running the Livingston Plantation after her father Charles is k

Interesting insight into the injustices surrounding slavery from the perspective of a strong central female character. Many twists and turns in the plot keep the reader’s attention to the end. A worthy sequel to A Slave of the Shadows.

Wait! I want to go to the Wedding!

What a great read! I was hooked in the beginning, so happy to continue the story and find out the mysteries of Willow's life and who the Guardian was for the people.

I won this in the goodreads giveaway. You do not have to read the first book to follow the story but after reading the second I am looking for the first! Naomi Finley is a talented author who enticed me to invest in the characters more than usual.

Beautiful story

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This isn't an especially exciting story and it moves slowly. But, it's a wonderful story that highlights some of the conflicts of the time.

I looked forward to reading this book after I won it from Goodreads, but unfortunately I just could not get into the book. The writing was easy, but I just could not connect to any of the characters. This may have to do with it being a sequel to another book that I have never read.
