In the aftermath of his fight against Empress Treyanna and his possession by an evil sorcerer, wizard-in-training and fighter pilot extraordinaire Grogaan Learman retreats to heal and regain his confidence. His power increases and previously lost secrets of magic are revealed; in the meantime, a new confrontation between the Empire and the Republic is brewing, while a previously unknown enemy waits in the wings.

Like the previous two books in the Guardians series, in A Guardian Reborn, shiny spaceships, futuristic technology, and exciting space battles blend with magic (unsullied by pseudo-scientific explanations) and wizards good and evil in an engaging mix of high fantasy and space opera with a touch of romance. The formal, slightly old-fashioned narrative style and omniscient viewpoint might make this book a little difficult for some readers to get into at first, but the engaging characters, tensions between the evil Empire and the Republic battling to preserve freedom in the galaxy, and the exciting battles both magical and involving space ships and laser cannons kept me reading.

Fans of Star Wars will especially enjoy these books, as will fantasy fans looking for a setting very different from the usual low-tech fantasy and science fiction fans in the mood for a little magic.
