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 :)
This book is the second book of The Guardians of Time trilogy (which is about to become a tetralogy in the future, yay). I have to say to not read this review on the app, because spoilers tags - that I always put- are removed and I don’t want to spoil anyone. If you are reading this review on your comp...more
This entire series has a huge case of insta-love, though. Everyone seems to have a soul mate, and the way they discover their soul mate is by being unable to look away from each others' eyes when they first meet. When I read the first book, I thought it was going to avoid this kind of thing - but it ...more
But I'll definitely continue with the series, I enjoy these books!
Possible triggers: Torture, whipping, beating and inflicting pain in general in one of the main characters.
The Dark, the second book in The Guardians of Time -trilogy (yes I know there's a fourth book but we don't talk about that in this house) continues the stories of Ethan Roberts, Isabel and Matt Becket, Arkarian and every other guardian of time and history. It's been a year since the finale of the first book, and the world is slowly starting to become more dangerous as the war between the Chaos and the Gua ...more
Isabelle/Arkarian: I approve and I liked the way Lorian gave his approval in the end of the book (it might be a little much though? I dunno)
Matt: He's extra-special now? Cool I guess.
Rochelle: Still ...more

The book starts out with the Goddess of Chaos, bu ...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
I think the most annoying thing that comes from the second and third novel is when a character over-explains a concept that you already know from the first book as if you are just now learning about them.
Though improved from the first book, it still reads like a tee ...more
The second installment in The Guardians of Time series was a lot more enjoyable than the first part, so I am glad that I kept going with the series.
The Dark follows our heroes into a dark otherworld to rescue on of their own to try and regain balance and keep The Order at bay.
It kind of goes to plan...
As with the first book there were a number of "plot twists" that I was able to work out before they were revealed so the shock factor was missing for me. Still, this was ...more

But it's a mistake. I become aware of her heart beating, her lungs expanding with every breath, her skin beneath my touch.
She moves, and her head slides to my chest. Shifting into sleep, she wraps her arm around my waist. Now I'm aware of my heart beating too, slowly, in sync with hers. I know I should push her away. But if my life depended on it, right now, that would be impossible.”
