March 2014 Debut of the Month The Da Vinci Code meets Alex Rider in a wildly imaginative and non-stop present day adventure series. Thirteen-year-old Ronan Truelove has just discovered he's a member of The Blood Guard - an ancient order sworn to protect the Pure. Suddenly his mother's insistence on martial arts lessons makes sense. Ronan must use all his skills - including ones he never knew he had - to save his parents, the girl of his dreams and the world, in that order. Perfect for fans of Rick Riordan, Robert Muchamore, Anthony Horowitz and Michael Grant.

Synopsis

The Blood Guard by Carter Roy

The Blood Guard is set in the present day, but it shows us a world we never knew existed. There are thirty-six truly good souls on earth, who have identities so secret that even they don’t know they are special – or that one day they will be called upon to save the world from a terrible fate. They are guarded by an ancient order of protectors, known only as the Blood Guard.

Thirteen-year-old Ronan Truelove leaves school one day and discovers he's a member of The Blood Guard. He will acquire invaluable skills (in swordfighting, subterfuge and more); learn that he has magical talents he never dreamed of; rescue his parents from certain death and finally fall for the wrong girl and overlook the right one. Only then will he find out his true purpose: guarding a geeky girl computer genius, and by saving her, save the world.


Reviews

“Wildly intense and deviously funny, The Blood Guard has real heart as well as characters you’ll fall in love with. Very cool stuff.” Michael Grant, author of BZRK and the New York Times bestselling GONE series

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
