Book Review: Heart of the Guardian by Desiree Williams


Heart Song Trilogy – Book 3

25957481 (1)The time has come. The war ends now …

Syrina’s inner energy has not been the same since the Guardian Alanna saved her that day in the market. A burning need to help others drives her to seek permission to join the caravan headed to the Rebels camp. Lady Alanna and Prince Jerric have given Syrina and her mother so much, and in return, Syrina wants to spread that kindness to the Guardian’s army in any way she can.

It was supposed to be another easy plan. Until an amber-eyed stranger flipped her life around, throwing her into the strange world of Guardians and Warriors. Now, Syrina faces challenges she’s never even dreamed of as the missing piece in the War on the Lands is found.

New enemies and allies surface in this never ending war. Syrina and the Guardians lock onto the measure of goodness they’ve been given while evil threatens to rip it from their hands.

When the battle hits home, nothing will be the same.


My Review:

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

I read the first two books in this series, Heart Song and Shifter’s Heart, and was looking forward to reading the final book in the trilogy. This series has gotten better with each book and I’m going to miss the characters.

Desiree Williams’ writing style flows well and is easy to read. Her descriptions put vivid pictures in my mind but she doesn’t give so much detail that I get bored and skip paragraphs.

The characters from the first two books, Laelynn & Dustan and Alanna & Jerric, are secure in their relationships as well as their roles as Guardians and their Warriors. They all have the common goal of ending the war with Varkadon so that peace will once more reign. I have enjoyed watching them all grow individually, within their bonds, and as Guardians and Warriors. 

Syrina, who was saved by Alanna from her mother’s evil landlord, wants to repay her by assisting the Rebels any way she can. When she arrives at the Rebel camp, she meets Emer and nothing is the same for either of them after that. I really liked their love story. The poor couple didn’t have much time together, though, before they were off to war.

The trilogy has a good ending and I definitely recommend Heart of the Guardian. It is a stand alone book but I would read Heart Song and Shifter’s Heart first.
