A Guardian of Shadows (The Revenant Wyrd Saga #4)

The thrilling sequel to The Well of Wyrding.

In the enchanted lands of the Great Realms, Angelica, Jovian, and Joya are searching for their kidnapped sister, Amber. Their quest has led them through many dangers and many excitements, but nothing has prepared them for what’s about to come.

The wyr are alive, the Two who were never supposed to exist. They are destined to control the wyrd and fate of all mankind. Their very existence is destroying the world tree, on whose roots the fate of man is etched, and causing the Well of Wyrding, which sustains the world tree, to dissolve. Now Angelica and Jovian are hunted by the Norns, those three sisters of fate who guard the world tree and live at its roots, observing and preserving fate, who believe Angelica and Jovian are the wyr.

Angelica, Joya, and Jovian are on a race to escape the Norns as well as find their sister Amber, but with no clue where she could be, they turn their attention toward home, deep in the Holy Realm. The problem? Between them and their destination is the accursed land of eternal night: the Shadow Realm. Rumored to be filled with nightmarish creatures, forsaken to its shadowy depths, the Shadow Realm promises death to any from the Holy Realm who dare enter.

My Thoughts:

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
Once again, WHOA! This series just gets better and better! If you love series based on mystical, mythical creatures, fantasy, magic and danger, this is the series for you! It’s also pretty gruesome at times. Throughout this series there are some parts (like teachers being overtaken by evil Wyrd and killing their students) that may be difficult for the reader to stomach. I don’t recommend this series for anyone under the age of 18.

I’d also like to say that you will NOT want to start reading at book 4. You do need to start at book 1 if you have any hope of understanding this series.

Why?  Travis Simmons has a LOT of different characters and creatures in The Revenant Wyrd Saga. You are introduced to new types of creatures and beasts in each part of the series. There are a lot of words, like Wyrd, that you will need to read from the beginning to understand what they mean. So I definitely do not recommend trying to read any of the books as stand alone novels. You really need to read the entire series from the beginning.

The Revenant Wyrd Saga has been a great series to read and book 4: A Guardian Of Shadows hasn’t disappointed. The siblings are still in search of their sister, Amber. They encounter many creatures along their path and have to fight to stay ahead in their search. There are some changes in this book that the siblings go through. There are twists and changes in each part of the series but this one threw me the most. I don’t like giving spoilers so I don’t want to go into a lot of details but I will say that we see characters being overtaken, possessed if you will, by the Norns. We see lives change so drastically in book 4 that we begin to wonder how this series could ever end with a happy ending. It’s AWESOME! Book 4 really keeps you on your toes and keeps you guessing as to what the final story will be! I can’t wait for the next book.



About the Author

12453645615 ca3ef49c2a o


Travis has been writing since he was 14. He began writing a book called “The Calling of the Two” and while writing that on and off he started uncovering another idea.

“Yes, this is all well and good, but what about before? What happened in the world before these characters came into it?” He always knew there was a “before” and as he started wondering about it he got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as he discovered the names for his characters a whole story about them emerged.

Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica’s story has been one wild ride for him. He has also written the Infernal Design series.

He lives in a small town at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and hoofing around my neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels. He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.
