At the beginning of this book, you get a complete beginner's guide for the Celtic words and Gaelic, followed by a synopsis from the first book. That thoughtful attention to detail is just the beginning framework of this author's ability to weave a tale. I enjoyed the various POV and each individual character's personality. Throw in ancient allies, enemies, elements of magic, metaphysics and spirituality... and you've got the makings of a great magical journey. The Spirit War Trilogy is thoughtfu ...more

K.V. has created a fun world full of magic, shapeshifters, and spirits. Her attention to detail in her storytelling makes Skye and her companions come alive.

The war against the Covenant is far from over. The story follows Skye while she tries to recruit more followers. Mac Tire is a totally amazing character and his POV is thoroughly enjoyable.

Patercius is the most mysterious character that I have come across and definitely my favourite character in the book.

Nwfye's reincarnation was amazing and caught me by surprise!

The book has an amazing writing style and though there are words from totally new language, it seems natural while reading the story.

Guardian is the perfect second installment to Wilson’s Spirits’ War Trilogy.

Skye Matthews journey is far from over after taking Sejka’s place as Ru-Yeva. Following the Battle of the Ritual, she and her friends head to Canada to recruit others for the inevitable battles to come, while fellow spirit Mac Tíre stays in the U.K., seeking out the last of their trio, Nwyfre.

But the Guardians’ enemies never rest, and those enemies have a new ally. Old enemy Paterius reads his misguided head to join the

An absorbing read

I enjoyed this second instalment as much as the first. Great characters, intriguing plot and some hilarious scenes which had me laughing out loud. I especially love the eccentric elderly characters. So many books only concentrate on the young and attractive. It makes a refreshing change. Looking forward to the final part.

Guardian is the sequel to Spiritborne of the Spirits’ War Trilogy.
K. V. Wilson not only has an amazing writing style rife with flawless prose, realistic dialogue, and breathtaking descriptions; she also adds poetry, proverbs, and even a new language that sounds very natural.

This was a fantastic sequel! All of my favorite things about Spiritborne are back in this second installment. Like the first book, it is filled with action and twists that keep the pages turning. We also get to dive deeper into what it means to be one of the Spiritborne. I especially loved getting to know the characters from Book 1 a little bit better and meeting some new ones. (Elspeth is hilarious. You're going to love her.) Can't wait to see what Book 3 has in store for us! ...more

This is well written book with a deeply developed world. Present and historical periods interweaved in a rich cast of characters. Chapters are written in style that makes you want to stay.

I would say this book is similar in world depth to "The Dark Hand Of Magic" by Barbara Hambly.

This book, like its predecessor, is an emotional, gripping, complex journey that will leave readers hanging off a cliff waiting for the third installment to save them from the suspense. The characters that K.V. Wilson began writing in Book One become even more developed (it's possible!), and the plot twists and turns kept my heart pounding through the entire read. This book improves upon Spritborne in a major way—it gives a larger backstory and motives for its antagonists. Many authors struggle ...more

Everyone loves the Irish, right? And the Irish love Saint Patrick. They even set aside a day for him, and have a big parade. After all, he drove the snakes out of Ireland. And that was good thing, right? But what if those "snakes" were really dragons, and some of your best friends are dragons?
Would you still love him? Could you? What would you do? Read and learn.

First, I received a free copy of the book for review. I also want to mention that I rated this book based on how much I liked the story and not on the technicalities of the book.

I would say this second book is a good progression of the first, and it makes sense. There is more tension, and the pacing is still smooth. The world building continues nicely, and I think the author improves with the creative and imaginative process with the fictional creatures, beings, and settings. I won't say too muc

I highly recommend Guardian. It's a fantastic follow-up to Spiritborne. I enjoyed Elspeth's snarkiness. Aelshen's a hoot. I loved revisiting and getting to know Skye better as a Guardian and also getting to meet a handful of other new characters. There were a lot of surprises, but some were a tad bit obvious, though that takes nothing away from the story. I look forward to diving into Incarnate just as soon as I can. ...more
