The Guardian by Robbie Cheuvront & Erik Reed
The Guardian invites you to plunge into a world of see and unseen forces. Follow Anna Riley in her mission to crack the code and unlock the secrets of a two-thousand year old scroll and find out if she can succeed in her mission.
Anna has just gained possession of an ancient scroll that God gave to John the Disciple where she must then guard, protect, and unlock the secrets of the scroll. She is believed to be the destined Guardian of the scroll and struggles with the path that was set for her by god. As she unlocks the mysterious secrets that the scroll holds, she is carried through a journey of faith to open up her heart to god. Jason Lang, her protector, faces many hurdles and challenges as he is responsible to keep his attraction to Anna at bay. Together, they begin their journey around the world as they face corruption, challenge, and dodge bullets.
Will they succeed together? Or will they fail? Will Jason defend the women that he’s vowed to protect? Will Anna be able to rely and trust other people to keep herself alive and fulfill the challenge that she has accepted?
In The Guardian, Authors Robbie Cheuvront and Erik Reed created the perfect combination. With elements of history, faith in god, action, and suspense, readers will be turning page after page to follow Anna and Jason in their quest.
I really enjoyed this book. It is 400+ pages long and I read it over one weekend. I don’t know what I was expecting but it wasn’t this. While I know this is a work of fiction, the infusion of biblical facts make it very interesting. The book is written creatively and in a fast pace that doesn’t bore the readers. Readers will get a glimpse of the supernatural and spiritual battle going on around us, a sharing of the interpretation of the bible and a lesson on faith and believing.
The Guardian started with John, the Disciple of Jesus being given a scroll by an angel of God. Then the story moved to modern time and how Anna was visited by an angel who told her that her grandfather whom she thought was dead needed her and that she is now the new Guardian of the scroll. After her protector, Father Vincent was killed, Jason Lang took his place to protect her as evil is out to get her in the form of a professional assassin.
In this ultimate battle of good over evil, the evil here is Lucifer himself who sends his earthly servant to do his dirty work in return for promises of worldly rewards. Good is God, the perfect one who is without sin and Archangel Michael and other archangel made appearances throughout the story. I guarantee you. When you start reading, you won't be able to stop.
Parables have been used to communicate spiritual truth since biblical and authors Robbie Cheuvront and Erik Reed who are both pastors felt that the Truth can be communicate to the world using fictions and this is how The Guardian come about. I think they did it successfully.
The Guardian was published on 1st Sept 2011. I review this for netGalley.com
