The Guardian: Blood in the Sand by MJ Kobernus – 5 Stars

I recently read The Guardian: Blood in the Sand by Michael Kobernus. A historian researching the life of a semi-famous adventurer and thereby earn an assistant professorship enters an amazing world of djinn, witches, and the living memories of the man he studies. It is imaginative story-telling that leaves you wanting more. Koburnus does a great job weaving believable characters and plot twists into an exciting tale that will keep you hooked until the very end. He also masterfully writes one scene of such strong emotions that it will tug at your heart long after you’ve turned the final page. I for one am looking forward to reading the next book in the series, though this first book is so well-encapsulated that I have no idea where he will be going with the next one.
