GUARDIANS INC.: THE CYPHER is two stories in one. A glimpse into a multinational company that is in reality the oldest of secret societies, one that spans close to seven thousand years of existence, weaving in and out of history, guiding and protecting humanity from creatures and forces that most of us believe are only mythology and fairy tales.

The other is the story of Thomas Byrne, a young man thrust into secrets he shouldn’t be aware of and dangers he shouldn’t face but, that he ultimately will, for he is a Cypher. The only one who can steer humanity’s future.

The ultimate conspiracy theory is that Magic is real. Kept in check by technology but, every five hundred years the balance can shift and, if it does, technology will fail and those creatures we’ve driven into myth will come back with a vengeance.

To protect the present, Guardians Incorporated needs to know the future, and to unlock the future they need a Cypher.

This is the first book of the Guardians Inc Series.



I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

This is the first in a series of young adult fantasy books. It’s the story of 15 year old Thomas who has lived with his grandpa since his parents disappeared. They both get a job with Guardians Inc. and that’s when things get interesting.

I liked the characters in this story and it was easy to picture them from the descriptions given. I think my favorite character would have to be Killjoy. What an interesting woman!  Thomas is a typical 15 year old in some ways but he’s also mature beyond his years in others, probably due to having to deal with the disappearance of his parents as well as having great support from his grandpa.

There were quite a few grammatical errors in this book but I still recommend it to readers of all ages. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series, Guardians Inc.: Thundersword.
