Guardians of the Wild Series by Kris Humphrey || Book Review

I read the books quite close to each other, even though I originally started reading them out of order, book three grabbed by attention enough to track down the rest of the series at the library and read them all.

All the books are short reads, with a good pace and nothing overdramatic in the writing style to take away the attention from the plot and the characters.

I recommend this fantasy series to anyone who loves fantasy books, is looking for a quick read or is looking at trying out the fantasy genre.

A Whisper of Wolves

Originally published: 2015

Pages: 224
Format: Paperback

Plot from GoodReads:

When a raven drops a white feather at the doorstep on the day of your birth, it is a symbol of your destiny. You are a Whisperer – a guardian of the wild. After many years of peace in the kingdom of Meridina, rumours are spreading of a planned invasion – could the demonic Narlaw be returning from the darklands? It is up to the Whisperers and their animal companions to defend Meridina, protect Princess Ona and stop the Narlaw from destroying their world.

When hunters from her village disappear without a trace, Alice suspects that something sinister is at work. With the help of Storm, her wolf companion, Alice fights to save her village. The Narlaw are on the attack and it’s up to the Whisperers to stop them…

Thoughts:

I loved the strong connection the characters have with nature as well as animals. Being against the odds and the lack of belief in her is what helped Alice believe in herself and take her duty to heart. There are some sneak peaks about other whisperers that are enough to peak your curiosity and wait for them to make their appearances. A clean adventure that isn’t overly detailed but has everything you need to understand the story.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 3.74 on GoodReads. I gave it a 5.

Warning Cry

Originally published: 2015

Pages: 224
Format: Paperback

Plot from GoodReads:

Word of the Narlaw invasion is racing through Meridina. The shape-shifting demons are on the attack and Dawn has called the Whisperers to a council of war. Nara and her leopard companion, Flame, have never left their savannah home but now they must journey to the palace… Will the threat reach them first? Nara and Flame will need all their skills to survive…

Thoughts:

This book has a faster pace and a little more action going on. I really liked that it’s not overly detailed with light references to everything. Nara has to be my favourite character from the series, she makes and great team with Flame. Nara is mature and smart, a little different from Alice, and I liked that more about her. One thing I do need to mention is that there’s a lack of information about the magic in the world and where it comes from. It could’ve been explained in bits and pieces to give some context.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 3.50 on GoodReads. I gave it a 5.

Gathering Voices

Originally published: 2016

Pages: 224
Format: Paperback

Plot from GoodReads:

Mika and her Arctic fox companion, Star, must travel from their distant mountain home to join Dawn and the other Whisperers at the palace. The journey is fraught with danger but Mika has discovered a gift that might just change the fortunes of all Meridina… 

Thoughts:

Another fast paced book with a new protagonist’s journey to follow. Mika isn’t as experienced as some of the others but when she makes an amazing discovery about her powers and how to use it properly, everyone realises that this could be the key to saving the kingdom from the Narlaw. The journey requires some sacrifices and that’s why it’s so crucial that the plan is successful. With Mika maturing as the journey takes them ahead and facing different challenges, she has a chance of being of the more powerful whisperers. Dawn was a slight irritation in this book, not doing what she was suppose to be doing, especially after the mistake that the made of putting someone important in danger.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 4.11 on GoodReads. I gave it a 5.

The Raven’s Call

Originally published: 2016

Pages: 224
Format: Paperback

Plot from GoodReads:

As Dawn races to find the earthstone – the final link in the battle against the Narlaw – Ona struggles to keep control as the situation in the capital reaches crisis point. Can the young Whisperers of Meridina banish the shape-shifting demons once and for all? 

Thoughts:

I liked the idea of a potential romance brewing in the book but it was so lightly touched on, it didn’t overshadow the bigger plot in the book. The point of views change in this book to show what multiple characters are facing in the moment. Some characters could’ve use a little better development to solidify the climax moment in the series. I still have some questions about the world-building and exactly how some things work. There still wasn’t any information given to some questions that pop up while reading the series.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 3.95 on GoodReads. I gave it a 5.
